There’s something particularly eerie about an abandoned shopping mall. Perhaps it’s the stark contrast from its intended purpose: to see such a sterile place once designed to entice throngs of shoppers into its doors, now so completely devoid of any human life, dilapidated and darkened with time. It’s basically the very definition of post-apocalyptic. But in the case of the (now ironically named) New World shopping mall in Bangkok, Thailand, abandonment by humans doesn’t equate with lifelessness. The mall, which reportedly caught fire in 1999 (rumored to be arson by a competitor), has since flooded with several feet of water and become a paradise for koi and catfish.
As seen in these photos from chef / travel writer Jesse Rockwell, the resulting “urban aquarium” is at once delightful and surreal. Rockwell writes on his travel, photography, and food blog A Taste of The Road that someone deliberately introduced the fish (to probably reduce mosquitoes) into the vacant mall, but that locals in Bangkok’s old town “discourage people from visiting it.” He says he had to wait for a policeman to leave before entering, which makes his resulting images all the more breathtaking.

We believe we are already within a democratic system. Some factors are still missing, like the expression of the people’s will, but nevertheless we still think we are within a democracy.

Anonymous said: Still glad you supported that #yesallwomen thing? Cus now they want to end father's day! Started as a prank, turned into something very real. These are the people you're supporting.
Really. All women who wanted to share their experiences and used a hashtag for increased visibility and solidarity while spreading awareness have collectively decided that Father’s Day has gotta go.
I don’t think you understand how hashtags work.

Man, look at all this bullshit. 1K posts of reblogs of gifsets and fandom shit. It’s time I go and do something productive. Like homework. Or a tumblr which isn’t cluttered up with 1K reblogs of fandom gifsets and instead has actual original content. Hm…
“‘It is true. Look and see.’ Jon Arbuckle showed Garfield a letter that came through mail boxes.
'Dear Garfield, you are not invited to royal wedding. Sincerely Royal England Family.' Said the letter with insults.
'INVITE THIS.' Shouted Garfield as he tore up the letter with manly hands.
'This is last straw. I will not stand for insults to humanity.' Garfield cried out to the ceiling with fist clenched with justice.”
