==> always post the rules: answer the questions the person who tagged you asked and write 11 new ones. tag 11 new people. message the people you’ve tagged to let them know that you’ve tagged them. have fun!!

 Thanks for tagging me! I’m going to answer these now and then go back and write the new questions and tag people later, because I have to get up super early tomorrow.

1) Do you prefer DC, Marvel, or other?

I don’t really read superhero comics, so I don’t have a preference. I’ve seen The Avengers movie and that is the extent of my knowledge. My favorite comic ever is Calvin and Hobbes :P

2) You’re giving all the money and resources you need to make a video game. Do you use those resources to continue a game you like (resources mean that you could get the people who made the game in the first place to make the sequel you want)? Or do you make an entirely new video game?

Well I don’t play video games so I would make a new one! Thinking about this, I just decided I would make an Dr. Seuss video game, with his style of art. I have no idea how it would work but I think it would be super cool. I’m probably the only one though, haha

3) Would you rather live in northern Alaska or the midst of the Sahara desert?

Northern Alaska. I definitely prefer the heat to the cold, but in Alaska I could have sled dogs! Plus I know a little more about how to survive there than I know about survival in the desert.

4) For some reason, you have your own country. What do you name it?

(Edit: oops forgot to answer this one! Oh well I will do it later.)

5) Favorite museum you’ve been to/would like to visit and why.

I really want to visit the Studio Ghibli museum in Japan! I love studio ghibli films, and it would involve traveling to Japan which I want to do someday.

6) Enough donuts to fill a car or a donut as large as a car. And why do you have that (many) donut(s) to begin with?

A donut as large as a car! I have the donut because I have just won the international Donut Discus event. (Edit: Apparently this is a real thing so nevermind.)

7) You are now an astronaut. What planet do you want to visit?

Mars and Pluto! Pluto will always be a planet to me.

8) What’s your guilty pleasure genre?

I don’t know, any TV show I guess. I don’t watch TV too often, and I never watched it growing up, so it feels a little like a guilty thing whenever I watch a TV show.

9) What’s your favorite book/movie/video game that you would recommend to other people?

This is such a difficult question! I’ts impossible for me to pick a favorite book, hard to pick a favorite movie, and I don’t play video games. I guess at random I would recommend The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver, it’s such a good book.

10) What’s your dream home like?

Probably a series of interconnected treehouses.

11) The zombie apocalypse has come and gone. What do you do now?

I would travel around collecting all the books I could find and preserve them in a post-apocalyptic library. Also I would live in a treehouse.

A Guide to the Ice Caves of Iceland

From the middle of November through March, Iceland’s glaciers creak open, exposing surreal caverns.

These ice caves can be luminous or dark, depending on the pressure of the water in the glacier and their depth. The most otherworldly are the “Crystal Caves” of the Vatnajökull Glacier in Skaftafell National Park, the largest of Europe’s glaciers, where the light filters blue into the wide chasms in the ice.

Visiting ice caves is extremely hazardous and only recommended with a guide, such as Local Guide of VatnajökullIcelandic Mountain GuidesGoecco Eco Adventures Iceland, and Glacier Guides. Each year these guides discover the season’s caves, as each winter’s offerings are different from the last. Once summer comes, the ice becomes unsafe for humans to enter due to the threat of collapse in the warmer temperatures.

For the complete guide to Iceland’s ice caves, keep reading on Atlas Obscura! 

Atlas Obscura’s Iceland Week is in partnership with Icelandair, who will fly you to this unreal wonderland for surprisingly cheap

Clues found about Civil War ship commandeered by slave on S.C. coast

GREENVILLE — The remains of a ship that was commandeered in Charleston harbor by an enslaved black man during the Civil War and used as an escape vehicle may have been discovered off the South Carolina coast, according to a historian with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Officials are not releasing details, but NOAA plans to issue a report and unveil historical markers on May 12, the 152nd anniversary of the little-known episode.

They said they don’t want to announce the location because it’s in an environmentally sensitive area.

But “we can say we’re pretty sure we know where it is,” said Bruce Terrell, senior historian and archeologist for the NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries’ Maritime Heritage Program and lead author of the report. Read more.




Revolutionary War tunnel preserved, explored in Ninety Six

NINETY SIX, SC - Historians and firefighters are working to preserve a siege tunnel that dates back to the Revolutionary War in the South Carolina town of Ninety Six.

FOX Carolina was with crews Wednesday to take a look inside the tunnel located at the Ninety Six National Historic Site, which is the only one of its kind left in the county.

In 1781 Patriots built the tunnel with the plan to burrow underneath the British-controlled Star Fort and plant explosives.

And now in 2014, Greenwood firefighter Russel Cline climbed through the tunnel with specialized breathing equipment and support from above ground to take a look at the tunnel dug more than 200 years ago. Read more.
