THE ROMAN THEATRE OF ORANGE: 

THE Roman theatre of ancient Arausio (modern day Orange in southern France) is one of the best-preserved examples from antiquity. Built in the 1st century CE, it once had capacity for 9,000 spectators and is dominated by its massive stage wall with an ornate façade decorated with columns, doorways, and niches. The theatre was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981 CE.

The Celtic site of Arausio, named after a spring deity, first attracted the interest of the Romans during the 2nd century BCE following a call from Massalia (modern Marseilles) for support against local tribes. A series of conflicts ensued which included battles with invading Danish tribes, the Cimbri, and Teutones. Eventually, the area of Provence was brought under Roman control.

This is my general magical reading list: http://spiritvexer.tumblr.com/post/149044783100/thickets-magical-book-recommendations

For a spirit worker, I would recommend Encyclopedia of Spirits by Judika Illes, and Protection and Reversal Magick by Jason Miller. 

Tumblr followers:  Does anyone know if Major Ovech has a first name in canon?  I have been looking around and haven’t found one.  And I find myself thinking about dropping $30 on the SWTOR encyclopedia since it’s not on the Google anywhere that I can find.

Although, to be fair, every time I google Ovech I get hits for Alexander Ovechkin.  Which has given me the idea that any named miscellaneous Imperials in my fics from here on out will be named after hockey players.

Look out for a story where a craven, traitorous Lieutenant Crosby gets eviscerated by my SW.

I have so many shelves of Doctor Who merch. I have comic books, two different encyclopedias, a full TARDIS model that opens, vinyl pop figures, books, a K-9 figure, Doctor Who Trivial Pursuit, a small TARDIS model light, and a 10th doctor sonic screwdriver flashlight, etc. I get a majority as gifts from family members who don't know me well (mostly my parents) and I have more than I can handle. I only want money honestly & I might sell some of my merch tbh bc it's all in great condition.

Sell it all and roll in the Dough

INCA INGENUITY IN THE ANDES:

NESTLED deep in the Andes, the former Inca capital city of Cusco stands at 11,152 feet (3,399 m) above sea level. It is a destination for tourists from around the world who ascend the treacherous mountainside roads to make their pilgrimage to one of the modern wonders of the world, Machu Picchu. While it is best known for its proximity to the ancient city, there is a wealth of other sites in and around Cusco that still have intact remnants of the region’s Inca past.

The Inca Empire, known to themselves as Tiwantinsuyo, began in the early 15th century and lasted until the Spanish conquest. It was centered on the capital, Cusco, which continues to be an important city in Peru.

  • Literally Anyone:*knows marginally less about any musical than I do*
  • Me:I am a theatre god. I should be publishing encyclopedias on this shit. I am the greatest Thespian mind ever to grace a stage. Truly there are no limits to my knowledge.
  • Literally Anyone:*knows marginally more about any musical than I do*
  • Me:Why did I pick this career? I barely know more than a handful of shows. I'm embarrassing myself even talking about this stuff. Everyone knows I'm a con. There is nothing for it but ot get a job at Burger King cleaning bathrooms and listening to children scream about chicken fries for the rest of my life.
Alliance News Network: Milky Way Encyclopedia NOW available!

Yes.

Here it is.

Ready to be read and used by you, my Tumblr friends.

*******Just in case: this guide is a personal work document. My goal is not to usurp anyone, and certainly not to make money out of it. It’s only to make your fan art, and mine, easier.*******

Now… Enjoy, and happy creating to all of us!!!! :D

Dust storms originating in the Sahara Desert produce stunning aerial photos with plumes of particles observed being blown to Europe and even as far as South America. Saharan dust storms have increased 10-fold during the last 50 years. Land degradation due to agriculture has increased the amount of dust particles that can be caught up in the winds propelling them across to all these other continents. The question now is whether dust storms will be ever more common as we continue trying to meet the demand for food.
