Surreal Photos of A Frozen Venice

Art director Robert Jahns has created a series of surrealistic photos of Venice by combining photos of Italy by Luis Manuel Osorio Fernando with photos of frozen lakes in Russia by Daniel Kordan. Robert Jahns wanted to show how the Venice Canal would look like if it was frozen by the winter.

i was with a new friend yesterday and he was telling us how he worked on a maple syrup farm and then he kind of pulls me aside and was like “hey don’t tell anyone but i can get you some maple syrup at a nice discount price but technically it’s not legal but let’s keep that on the down low” and i think i just made friends with an illegal maple syrup dealer

WHY DO WE NEVER TALK ABOUT THE FACT THAT FOR THE PAST 15 YEARS IN A SMALL TOWN IN ALASKA THE MAYOR HAS BEEN A CAT 

mAYOR STUBBS

 ”He doesn’t raise our taxes - we have no sales tax. He doesn’t interfere with business,” said Lauri Stec “He’s honest.”

and he oNLY drinks water from a wine glass

A town decided that a cat would be a better mayor than people

“He’s good, probably the best we’ve had,”

I’d vote a cat over Ford. And I’m allergic to cats…

Now, see here, couldn’t we discuss this like civilized beings?” Alexia, ever one for form and courtesy, was in favor of negotiations whenever possible.
None of the vampires responded to her request.
Alexia thought this dreadfully boorish. The least they could do was answer with a “No, killing is all we are interested in at the moment, but thank you kindly for the offer all the same.” Alexia had, in part, compensated for a lack of soul through the liberal application of manners. This was rather like donning an outfit consisting entirely of accessories, but Alexia maintained that proper conduct was never a bad thing. These vampires were behaving most improperly. By

Gail Carriger, Blameless

So far this is my favorite passage in her books.
