This is Kaindy Lake which is located in Kazakhstan’s portion of the Tian Shan Mountains. The lake has not always been here and is the result of a natural dam created by a landslide that was triggered by an earthquake in 1911. Since then, rainwater filled the valley and created the lake which is 400 metres long and 30 metres at its deepest point.The lake is famous for its scenic beauty, in particular the sunken forest. The trunks of spruce trees rise out of the lake and look amazingly out of place amongst the calm water.-Jean For more information see: http://www.caravanistan.com/travel/kazakhstan/kaindy-lake-sunken-forest/Photo courtesy of Zhirayr Nersessian.

Today was my last shift and they gave me 12 beers. Last year they gave me a rose bush. I wonder what it will be next year.


jaredjdevitt:

I imagine time as an ocean, the world ocean, all the water on Earth that settled into the seas in an unending belt of brine and foam, and how if that’s all the time that will ever be, (and if, in a scant hydrogen atom winging a singular water molecule, there floats a lone proton and inside that proton are three quarks, one of which represents my lifetime), then the time I spend alive is practically incalculable to the time I will not even exist. It would take trillions of me to make even a single drop.

Time is an ocean. You will be dead significantly longer than you were ever alive. You can hear the weight of eons pressing against the walls of what you’ve come to call life.

Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”
