The underground coal fire that creates what is called “Burning Mountain” (Mount Wingen) near Wingen, New South Wales, Australia was probably started by lightning or spontaneous combustion. At least, that’s the assumption—no one knows for sure because it has been going strong for at least 6,000 years. Acientists believe it may be the oldest known continuously burning coal fire.
The blaze moves at a rate of about 1 meter (3.3 ft) each year due south. That may not sound like much, but given its age, simple math tells us that the coal fire has moved at least 6 kilometers (3.7 mi) since it started. At this rate, the fire should reach the outskirts of Sydney Australia, a distance of about 280 kilometers (173 mi), in another 255,000 years or so.
everyone’s making their blogs all snowy and stuff for christmas while here in australia christmas is literally this
it was 36 degrees today and i saw an ad on tv with about 20 santas surfing and waving a christmas ham around in the air

To celebrate Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary, can this picture of the man that started it all get a million notes?
77 milion people watched it yesterday, what is 1 milion for us. Let’s do this.
It’s a testament to his work, and the show, that this has got so many notes so fast. I saw the post not a few hours ago, and it had about half the 22,000 or so it has now.
I’m the Doctor - the original, you might say.
Let’s also take a moment to celebrate Verity Lambert, the woman who produced Doctor Who.And Waris Hussein, the first directorAnd Ron Grainer who wrote the theme music:And Delia Derbyshire, who took that original melody and used ground breaking techniques to make it into the iconic DOOO WEEEEE OOOOO we all know and love:
It got better.
The flashbacks in Dead Man Walking were really boring and plain, they didn’t add any real development to the characters at all and fridged a women we don’t even know.
I thought the flashbacks would have been better dealt with by being more like memories, with emotions running high due to Monroe’s impending death we could have a memory of past Monroe, one from Miles one from Monroe and lastly from Rachel. This would have tied their storyline together better and given a little more understanding to their actions as well. It would have been easy enough to have a short scene from Miles perspective where the republic is in full swing but they are just friends surveying their work having a laugh but something happens, maybe news comes in or attack in the square and Monroe switches to cold and calculating with no hesitation and we have a worried look on Miles that displays that he still wants an aspect of his friend back but thinks that Monroe is too far gone to ever get that back.
Monroe can have a memory of them fighting well together again maybe even before the Miles one so that in Monroe’s they’re having fun get news of bad times, and then in Miles’ memory they approach the problem from tow very different directions.
Finally I really would have liked to have seen a scene with Miles, Monroe and Rachel from her captivity in the republic again doesn’t need to divulge any major plot point but clearly Monroe must do or say something that results in consequences to Rachel, this would allow for his apology to mean something just before they kill him. I know that we have knowledge of him being her captor but that was a season and a half ago now and I feel that it would have displayed some of Rachel’s rage well without necessarily displaying Monroe as THE EVIL.
Basically it would have been nice for the flashbacks to have been used to display the different aspects of Monroe and how he perceived by the people around him rather than some cliche story that the character has already had half before with children and whatsits.
