It’s Iscea’s birthday and we’re going bowling. I’m not very good.
West African Leaf Viper (Atheris chlorechis)
Translated this means “Magic Numbered Ship” and is a very complex bindrune designed to be used against a robber’s ship so it will sink.
The bindrune should be placed in the vessel and then the following galdr (incantation magic) verse recited:Hátt eru segl við húna
hengd með strengi snúna.
Séð hef ég ristur rúna
mig rankar við því núna.Ofan af öllu landi
ógn og stormur standi,
særokið með sandi
sendi þeim erkifjandi.
I’ve never even thought of this. This is fantastic.

The New World Shopping Mall has been abandoned since 1999. It shut its doors after being condemned by local regulators. A few years later a massive fire destroyed the structure’s roof. Not long after that monsoon rains flooded the lower floors.
As a way to combat the spread of mosquitoes and other insects breeding in the stagnant water, locals introduced koi and catfish to the former mall. Not only did the fish take care of the pest problem, they’ve thrived. It is now one of the world’s largest urban ponds.
Love pictures like this.

Lake View Cemetery: The Haserot Angel
It’s called the Angel of Death Victorious. Due to an effect of weathering and erosion on the bronze, the statue appears to be weeping black tears at all times.
