Check out this awesome starry driveway! The beautiful stellar effect was achieved by mixing glow stones with gravel. You might have already encountered glow stones, which are often used in aquariums. They’re a synthetic aggregate of photoluminescent pigment and synthetic resin.

According to Jinan Chenghao Technology, “When exposed to light sources, the photoluminescent pigment within Glowstone becomes chemically excited and will afterglow (i.e. glow in the dark).” The glow is initially very strong, but then slowly dulls over night.

We’d love to see all of the driveways and sidewalks in our neighbourhood covertly decorated like this. We could go out each night for a star walk. And during the day passersby would be none the wiser.

Naked Buddhas Attack !!!

Picture: Naked Buddha sculptures are unveiled in China. The artworks sparked heated debate online, with some saying they were interesting and others branding them disrespectful. It’s said the inspiration for the sculptures came from a Chinese soup dish called ‘Buddha Jumps Over the Wall’. It is said that the dish smells so good that even the Buddha can’t help jumping over the wall to taste it.

마이산 탑사 by 박석상

"Tapsa (탑사), in Jinan-gun, Jeollabuk-do, is an example of the amazing accomplishments an individual can achieve when properly motivated. Tapsa is a temple where a man named ‘Gapryong Lee’, a retired scholar built numerous pagodas one stone at a time over a period of decades. There are some marvelous towers, such as Cheonjitap, Obangtap, Ilgwangtap and Wolgwangtap, which are so tall and massive it’s hard to believe they were erected by just one man. It is said that he built 108 towers over 30 years from 1885, but only 80 of them remain today."

Just finished watching Anohana for the first time

and I’d be lying if I said it was the last //shot


But seriously, this is the first anime to make me full out sob. I’ve watched Clannad and After Story, SAO, Fruits Basket, Angel Beats and a lot of other stuff. This tops them.

And to add salt to the fandom wound they’re making a movie. It comes out August 31 in Japan. Just thought you should know.

We might think—what does Allah have to be appreciative for? Everything we have is from Him anyway! But that is why He, the Most High, is ash-Shakoor: The Most-Appreciative. In this form, it means He appreciates the smallest of deeds, He appreciates the deeds all the time, and His appreciation is unlimited.
