Why the World ShakesWhy the World ShakesWhy the World Shakes4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Have you ever wondered why there have been so many strong earthquakes recently? Well, recently meaning the past few years.
People seem to think that something is going wrong with the Earth and that someone is responsible for it. While that is true in many ways, earthquakes aren't one of those things.
There are 2 reasons why there are more earthquakes now than a few years ago.
Reason 1: Media Coverage
As civilization expands, we get news from provinces previously unreachable. If there were a strong earthquake in a small Chinese town somewhere and nowhere, you wouldn't have heard of it in the past. But nowadays, these things are reported. In other words, the number of earthquakes didn't increase, but the number of earthquakes that are reported!
Reason 2: Chain Reactions
Apart from the effect of wider media attention, the frequency of strong earthquakes really has increased ever since 2004. Do you remember? It was the year of the great Sumatra-Andaman earthquake that

I'm back homeOh my fucking God guys I missed home so much.I'm back home2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Europe was...interesting. Definitely a life experience.
But, in all honesty, it's not what I was expecting.
I had fun; I had a lot of fun. But there were times when I just wanted nothing more than to come home and be with my friends and family.
First off, the traveling accommodations: the first and last days of the trip were spent in various airports and airplanes. I love flying--I really do. But being on a plane for 8 hours (the ones to and from Europe) with no leg room...ugh. Plus I didn't sleep at all on those flights because I just couldn't. We bused from France to Switzerland and Switzerland to Germany, and the buses were very comfortable. I slept like a log on those.
So. Paris. I...really didn't like it. It was dirty, smelly, crowded...and my God. The French blatantly show their dislike for us Americans. They were so rude that I got irritated more than once. Plus Paris was the three days where we did nothing but wal

Pottermore is open. Big whoop.I've heard lots of people worrying about how Pottermore is going to be when it opens. Friends of mine got in early and seem to love it.

Well guess what.
Pottermore's finally open, and I was so excited. That is, until I got to the third step of the registration process.
Are you male or female?:
There are just two options, and you cannot pick neither, or both. Just one.
And to think that people have been losing sleep over their house sorting! I can't even finish registering because I can't sort myself into the gender binary!
I want to experience Pottermore, but I seriously don't feel comfortable choosing either one of those options. What do I do?
Mark your calendars for ALIE DAY!Hi there, fellow Weasley lovers --Mark your calendars for ALIE DAY!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm here to post about something a little bit different than usual. I hope you all remember one of our past admins, Whisperwings, also known as Alie (who also went by Luna while she was an admin here for a couple of years). You may also know her as wisteriaprincess on tumblr!
She is 25 years old, a Sagittarius, loves to draw, and has always dreamed about becoming an Imagineer to design Disney parks. She's not only an incredibly gifted artist, she is also uncommonly kind, compassionate and selfless. She is a pure beam of light to everyone around her, and twirkle and I are lucky enough to call her one of our friends.
Unfortunately, Alie received some devastating news over the holidays. After lots of time spent in the hospital and talking to countless doctors, she was diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer. Due to several other mitigating factors, she and her family have made the dec

Mature themes in American AnimationWhen I first discovered Anime, my mind was blown. Here were Japanese animations being made which told adult stories with sex, violence, and all sorts of things I'd never seen before done in American films. As a teenager the constant pandering to children and the reluctance to accept more mature themes and ideas in American animated films pissed me off. Why can't american cartoons be taken more seriously and have stuff for adults too outside of South Park and The Simpsons?Mature themes in American Animation3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In 1998 Stephen Spielberg tried to change that. After having a successful run of kids cartoons (Tiny Toons, Animaniacs, Pink and the Brain, etc), he took it a step further by giving us a PRIME TIME cartoon series aimed at adults. It was called "Invasion America." It was a sci-fi epic, featured a slew of big name actors including Leonard Nimoy, and featured more adult oriented themes such as sex, violence, and swearing!
It sucked and was a resounding failure.
The epic plot they were trying to weave would never be compl

What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?
