back the fuck up

There’s another story that I like about a Chinese general who had to defend a city with only a handful of soldiers from a huge enemy horde that was in all likelihood going to steamroll the place flat within hours of showing up.
So when said horde did arrive, they saw the general sitting outside the city’s open gates, drinking tea. The horde sent a couple of emissaries over to see what was what, and the general greeted them cheerfully and invited them all to come and take tea with him.
The horde decided that this was a scenario that had “MASSIVE FUCKING TRAP” written all over it in beautiful calligraphy and promptly fucked off.
Whoever that general was, he was clearly the Ancient Chinese equivalent of Sam Vimes.


did he just invite us over for tea nah man i’m out

This just keeps getting better

Is that paper
is that fucking paper

You bet your ass that’s paper. It’s by Canadian artist Calvin Nicholls.

who’s both incredibly talented and an awesome all-around dude. He’s been doing these since the 80s and focuses mainly on wildlife, though he also sometimes does other things as well.

He has a mini-tutorial on his site on how to make these, using everyday tools if you wanna check it out!

so apparently last year my lit teacher made her students do an assignment on some guy but the only rule was that they could NOT use wikipedia. so she went home and got on wikipedia and edited this guys birthplace, date of birth, date of death, and where he died and the next week when everyone turned in their papers every single one of them got those things wrong and thats how my lit teacher flunked 24 kids in one year

Disneypocalypse
My wife and I have been watching some classic Disney movies and it got me thinking about the short-lived gigantic final forms some of the villains take. Maleficent, Jafar and Ursula in particular spend seconds as massively destructive titans. It got me thinking about what would happen if they were able to spend days, even weeks as apocalyptic monsters. Then I started to wonder what would happen if you had to deal with all three at once. You’d probably want to limp away and wait until they finished one another off.

The niece of the great Mongol leader, Kubla Khan, Princess Khutulun was described by Marco Polo as the greatest warrior in Khan’s army. She told her uncle she would marry any man who could wrestle her and win. If they lost they had to give her 100 horses.

She died unmarried with 10,000 horses.

This is how I want to die. Unmarried, with 10,000 horses. There is no other way now.

The Amazing Underwater Forest of Lake Kaindy

What makes Lake Kaindy truly remarkable is that it contains an underwater forest. Visible on the lakes surface are the tall, dried-out tops of submerged Spruce trees that rise above the water’s surface like the masts of sunken ships. They are the only sign of the amazing frozen forest below the water’s surface.

The water is so cold (even in summer the temperature does not exceed 6 degrees) that the pine needles remain on the trees, even after a hundred years of being submerged. During the winter, the lake freezes and becomes a popular spot for ice diving.

The lake is 400 meters long and is located in Kazakhstan’s portion of the Tian Shan Mountains, about 129 km from the city of Almaty. The lake was created after an earthquake in 1911 triggered a large landslide blocking the gorge and forming a natural dam.

thank you so much for posting these Crazycat, I keep forgetting to do the sync thing and this stuff is so cool. 
Also holy fucking shit. Extra content available on a different platform that supplements the show. HOW NOVEL

No but really, someone write this. If not a noir, then make it a Star Trek holodeck themed story using a prop from TOS, or something…
