    Flat Rock Dam on the Schuylkill River.

    Built as part of the Schuylkill Navigation, a series of canals and slack pools that was opened in 1825 to provide transportation and hydroelectric power from Port Carbon to Philadelphia.

  5. Treat me the way you want to be treated

    I am not afraid of spiders

    I am not afraid of dirt

    I can pay for your dinners as often as you pay for mine

    I can open my own doors

    I know how to defend myself

    I don’t enjoy being spoken to in a condescending manner

    I am not a child and I don’t need you to take care of me

    Treat me with respect, and I will do the same to you

You Saw This Coming of the Day: Game of Thrones Premiere Downloaded Over 1M Times
With more than 4.2 million downloads per episode, Game of Thrones was the most pirated television show of 2012. However, less than 24 hours after the HBO epic fantasy show’s third season premiere, TorrentFreak reported the episode had already been downloaded more than a million times, with one torrent having more than 160,000 simultaneous connections. No torrent has had that many connections since September 23rd, 2008, when more than 144,000 people downloaded the third season premiere of Heroes at once. TorrentFreak also broke down the locations of the pirates, finding that Australia had the highest piracy rate while London had the highest concentration of pirates amongst major cities. Despite the massive amounts of downloads, the television premiere saw 6.7 million US viewers, despite airing against The Walking Dead’s season finale.




Holy. Shit.

    New Giant Tarantula Discovered in Sri Lanka

    by Nadia Drake

    A new type of tarantula about the size of your face has been found in northern Sri Lanka. Scientists found the spiders — with a leg span up to 8 inches across — living in trees and the old doctor’s quarters of a hospital in Mankulam.

    Covered in beautiful, ornate markings, the spiders belong to the genus Poecilotheria, known as “Pokies” for short. These are the tiger spiders, an arboreal group indigenous to India and Sri Lanka that are known for being colorful, fast, and venomous. As a group, the spiders are related to a class of South American tarantula that includes the Goliath bird-eater, the world’s largest.

    The new spider, named Poecilotheria rajaei after a local police inspector who helped the team navigate post-civil war northern Sri Lanka, differs from similar species primarily in the markings on its legs and underside, which bears a pink abdominal band…
