Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

An alien church provides much needed silence in the midst of a Finland shopping center


Quote

The space has been a hit since it first opened in 2012, and it is estimated that some 250,000 people had visited the space in less than a year. Just a year after that, the number had doubled to around 500,000 That's a lot of quiet time, especially in an alien egg.

The Great Stalacpipe Organ



Quote

An organ located deep within a cave and whose "pipes" are the geological features of the cave itself

Deep in the Luray Caverns of Virginia sits the largest musical instrument in the world.


I wonder if they sing,


Quote

But green rolling hills of West Virginia
Are the nearest thing to heaven that I know
Though the times are sad and dear and I cannot linger here
Theyll keep me and never let me go

But someday Ill go back to West Virginia
To the green rolling hills I love so well
Yes someday Ill go home and I know Ill right the wrong
These trouble times will follow me no more
Yes someday Ill go home and I know Ill right the wrong
These trouble times will follow me no more

Watch fast! Falcon hit on a mallard duck. Even in the "slow-motion" part that starts the whole clip, you can barely make out the falcon.
