WHAT KIND OF WIZARD FISH IS THIS

It’s a transparent cardinalfish (probably Apogon crassiceps) swallowing an ostracod. When threatened, this type of ostracod release a burst of biolumiscent chemicals to dazzle predators and/or attract their predator’s predators. The transparent cardinalfish is (for obvious reasons) particularly susceptible to this last bit, and so has evolved to spit out this type of ostracod whenever they detect the chemical. There’s a video at the post’s source!

so cool, thank you!

Villa Vals

Architects CMA and SeARCH were focusing on the question if it would be possible to conceal a house in an Alpine slope while still exploiting the wonderful views and allowing light to enter the building when planing the Villa Vals. They decided to build a central patio into the steep incline to create a large facade with considerable potential for window openings. The viewing angle from the building is slightly inclined, giving a dramatic view of the beautiful mountains on the opposite side of the narrow valley.

Perfect bunker

Vois sur ton chemin / Gamins oubliés égarés
Donne-leur la main / Pour les mener
Vers d'autres lendemains
Sens au coeur de la nuit / L'onde d'espoir
Ardeur de la vie / Sentier de gloire

Look out on your path
Children who are lost and who have been forgotten
Lend them a hand / And lead them
Towards another future
Feel in the middle of the night / A surge of hope
The indefatigability of life / The Road to glory

Bonheurs enfantins / Trop vite oubliés effacés
Une lumière dorée brille sans fin
Tout au bout du chemin
Sens au coeur de la nuit / L'onde d'espoir
Ardeur de la vie / Sentier de gloire

Childish happiness / Erased and forgotten too fast
A golden light shines forever
And the end of the road
Feel in the middle of the night / A surge of hope
The indefatigability of life / The Road to glory

Man just had a flashback to my first real festival experience

My first Wacken was 2007. I got my ticket through a girl that got into a discussion with me through our forum posts being read out on a German gaming channel. She won two tickets, couldn’t go herself but knew I wanted to and had the second ticket registered on my name.

I had no people to go with though, so I started asking friends in my WoW roleplay circle. One of them had a spot in her group. 

Arriving at Wacken, I awkwardly strolled through the village filled with metal-heads and was totally blown away. People from all over the world in this little two-thousand residents small community, now overrun with about eighty-thousand music fans.

My cellphone was on the verge of dying and my friend didn’t pick up until late in the evening (I had no idea where to meet them), luckily we found a good gathering place and she told me to wait there.

Which I did - Until two dudes came to pick me up. After about ten minutes of walking and one of the guys accidentally destroying my rucksack we found out that they meant to pick up someone else. So I said good-bye and hurried back to the spot I was meant to wait.

Few minutes passed until I heard a voice “…don’t know what he looks like, but he plays this Gnome!” To my shame I completely forgot her name (it was seven years ago!) 
After hugging and getting all my stuff to her and her friends’ all-female camp, we noticed that my own tent wouldn’t fit. However, one of girls said it was no problem, as she’ll just share her girlfriend’s and I could use her tent.

Which was good, because it meant I could sleep inside at night.

Though, she was really small - and I was already pretty tall at sixteen, so my feet poked out. No one stole my shoes though, which was good.

Next to concerts, my experiences included: Having some guy in a skirt sitting on my lap for about three hours, complaining that his girlfriend didn’t like it when he wore skirts. (He ended up accidentally stealing one of my hoodies), being crowned the “Beer Knight” by the Beer King (despite me not drinking a single drop of alcohol during the entire festival), buying a gasmask and dancing with a guy in a hazard suit - The same guy I’d meet again two years later, just to repeat the dance - and being told that “I should come quickly. Some of the Koreans took LSD and were building a naked pyramid.”

I had great fun, but three days later it was time to go.

My bus went early in the morning and my friend wanted to stay awake as long as possible, but kept dozing off in her chair. Eventually I told her she should just go to bed, because we’d see each other again the next time.

I did go to Wacken again, both 2008 and ‘09, but since I stopped playing WoW and lost my cellphone, we never met up again.

Still, one of the most fun weekends I’ll ever have
