I come from the land of maple syrup and Ben&Jerry's.
people don’t understand just how much depression impacts you.
- it does stop you from doing homework, it’s not just us being lazy.
- it makes it really hard to wake up, so yeah sometimes we need to miss school
- it makes you isolate yourself, we don’t actually want to lose all our friends
- it makes you really nervous about weird things, so sometimes we just don’t want to do new activities or sports or whatever
why can’t people accept that?
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.
If some dummy is standing out in the yard blowing bubbles and you walk up talking about maple syrup and the moron’s like, “What’s maple syrup?” the best thing you can do is to yank that bubble wand out of his hand and dip it into the jar of maple syrup you carry around.
Coat the wand generously and then blow a huge bubble. Watch as it floats across the street, faster and faster until it collides with some geek who is crossing the street with a gigantic stack of books. The maple syrup bubble explodes against the geek and the books are transformed into an electric guitar!!!
Hand the bubble wand back.
“THAT is maple syrup.”
My grandmother grew up in this tiny village in Barbados, and she was the only kid in the village to have a cricket bat. She used to play with all the boys, but then they started stealing the bat every time she bought it out of the house and saying that she couldn’t play because girls shouldn’t play sport. So one day she invited them to come play cricket, then set fire to the bat and made them watch it burn, so none of them could play cricket anymore. She was 11.
“The explosion struck a chord with 18-year NASA veteran Homer Hickam, a former lead astronaut training manager for Spacelab, and later for the International Space Station.
In the late 1950s, Hickam had a brush with law enforcement for allegedly starting a forest fire. State police came to his high school and led him and his friends away in handcuffs, but his high school physics professor and school principal came to the rescue, clearing him of wrongdoing.
Back then, schools did not have zero tolerance rules. Kids could make their mistakes without the threat of a criminal record, or serving time in jail.
“I couldn’t let this go without doing something,” Hickam said. “I’m not a lawyer, but I could give her something that would encourage her. I’ve worked closely with the U.S. Space Academy, and so I purchased a scholarship for her.”
