Doesn’t that look beautiful?

Like something you’d find on one of those soft/pale/rosy/grunge blogs? 

Well nothing too rosy on my blog. 

The Bolton Strid in England is one of the most innocent looking streams. 

Though it looks like you could just hop across the rocks, but if you miss you will die for sure. It packs very rapid currents just a couple of feet below its surface. No one really knows how deep it really is. Nobody who has ever fallen into the Strid has survived. It has a 100% fatality rate.

It’s always the things I google expecting to be false that wind up being horribly true.

SOURCE

"It’s relatively common for people to assume they can jump the creek, walk across its stones or even wade through it (again, just looking at it, the Strid really seems to be only knee-deep in places, and certainly not the instant, precipitous drop into a watery grave that it is). Most of the time, they never even find the body. Which means there are just dozens of corpses down there, pinned to the walls of the underground chasms, waiting for you to join them…"

I’m so glad Jake gifted me with the halcyon Darko days, worked bravely through that awkward Source Code transitional period, and has now landed squarely in my next man brand of interest: the middle-aged Civil War daguerreotype.

Again, though, this was when the One Direction gang mentality came into its own. We’d just close ranks and pick up whoever was feeling homesick or tired or down, and off we’d go again. I’ve heard it said that the best bands are gangs, and I really believe that. We’re a gang and, whatever happens in the future, we’ll always be a gang. Even if in 50 years’ time, if one of us is doing a project without the others, I’d like to be there to support them.

 LIKE OKAY. I KNOW THAT I AM ALWAYS GOING TO HAVE TERRIBLE INVOLUNTARY EMOTIONS IN RESPONSE TO A BAND THINKING OF THEMSELVES AS A GANG BECAUSE OF MCR REFERRING TO THEMSELVES THE SAME WAY. I KNOW THIS. BUT I AM SO GENUINELY UPSET AND INCOHERENT RIGHT NOW.

ZAYN DESCRIBING THEM AS A GANG. CLOSING RANKS. SUPPORTING EACH OTHER WHENEVER THERE’S A BAD DAY. TALKING ABOUT BEING THERE FOR EACH OTHER IN FIFTY YEARS.

BETWEEN THAT AND BOTH LIAM AND LOUIS TALKING ABOUT SHOWING THIS IS US TO THEIR GRANDKIDS IN FIFTY YEARS I AM HAVING A LOT OF TROUBLE WITH HOW THEY SEE THEIR FUTURE, AND HOW THEY’RE SIMULTANEOUSLY ALL SO CAREFUL TO NOT SAY THEY’RE GOING TO BE TOGETHER FOREVER, AND THEY ALL TALK ABOUT HOW OTHER BOY BANDS HAVE ENDED OR RUN INTO TROUBLE, AND THEY DON’T WANT TO EXPECT TOO MUCH OF THEIR FUTURE.
BUT THE ONE THING THEY DO EXPECT, WITHOUT RESERVATION, IS THAT IN FIFTY YEARS THEY’LL STILL BE A GANG IN THEIR HEARTS. 
I need to lie down.
