unbelievable photos

I want to go. I want to pack the car and experience it all. I want to camp in a tent somewhere with a beautiful view and dance by a bonfire on a beach under the stars. I want to stand under a waterfall and let the mist spray my face and paddle board down a natural spring river while a manatee swims under me. I want to jump off of cliffs into the water below and hear my thrilled screams fill the air. I want make a playlist and sing to it with the windows rolled down on some backroad. I want to stop and eat at small diners I have never heard of and talk to the waitress about the hidden gems in her town. I want to take unbelievable photos of all the adventures I have and see how my smile is bigger than ever. I want to go. I want to start living again.

Hey, here’s a picture of Stockholm, Sweden, around the turn of the 20th century, when the developed world looked more or less like it had been conquered by metal tarantulas.

As the city tried to keep up with the new telephone craze, its communications tower wound up having 5000 telephone and telegraph lines bursting out of it. New York City in 1887 had a similar issue, making the whole city look like it was preparing for a dragon attack.

Besides giving pigeons an entirely new canvas to paint white, the forward-thinking people of the past also didn’t account for another calamity that could befall any city tying all its buildings together like a giant shoelace prank: extreme weather. Boston experienced a rare January hurricane in 1881, which brought down nearly all of those wires and made the famous architecture of the town look like it had been visited by drunk Spider-Man.

Ask Ethan: How Can I Travel Through Space Without Getting Into Trouble?

“Sometimes (usually Fridays after work) my friend Scotty beams me up to USS Enterprise for a ride around Sun following the orbit of planet Earth. The warp takes about 2 hours, so I guess our speed is very close to light speed, but not quite. During the ride I usually have a couple of beers, so when Scotty beams be back to my front door, my wife has difficulties believing me when I tell her that I was not at the local Pub…”

So, your friend on the USS Enterprise beamed you aboard, took you on a relativistic journey at impulse speeds around the Solar System, and brought you back to your starting point. You find that less time has passed for you than your family who remained on Earth, yet you’ve traveled a much greater distance. How does this all work? How much energy does it take, what’s the science behind it, and how do you get your family to believe you when you tell them what happened to you? Some basic advice: give them times in their reference frame, admit to the drinking you actually do, and if you go someplace unbelievable, take a photo!

This right here was just incredible. The Grand Canyon, one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World. Located in the state of Arizona, it is one of the deepest gorges on Earth with an average depth of one mile and an average width of ten miles (16km). This was the west rim of the canyon.

Ignore my face because I messed up so bad but omfg. I asked if Jensen could like doodle over my face because I looked so stupid! But he looked at me, then looked down to the photo and drew a speech bubble. I was like “Oooooooh nooooo.” He started smiling and wrote “Who is this Person?” I was like oh my god nooooooo! And he was like “There you go,” and I couldn’t stop laughing! 

Also after everything had finished, I was exhausted and lying on the floor in the Boulevard of the Hilton and JENSEN ACKLES walks past, looks down at me and jokingly says “Don’t Get Up.” I reply with “I won’t! I won’t! ” He goes round the corner and i’m still on the floor. He then COMES BACK and says the same thing to me again and i reply with “I don’t think I can mate,” AND HE FRICKING LAUGHS AT ME!! What a way to end a perfect day!! (also i’ve been smelling like Jared’s aftershave for at least 8 hours…its so good.)
