Lets start to create a photo gallery of the world on this tread! Feel free to post your favorite picture of a place, architecture, car or image of your favorite photographer.
Due to the heavy bombing in World War II, #Magdeburg has less to offer in terms of cultural attractions than other cities of the same size. But of course there are still enough things to look at and the Hundertwasserhaus is without question one of real gems. Shortly thereafter follows the Magdeburg Cathedral, also a special landmark of the city.

🇬🇧Bagan (Burma) is an archaeological site perhaps less known than the Angkor complex in Cambodia, but it is very similar to it, and historically and archaeologically more interesting. Bagan Archaeological Zone is the formal name used to designate the historical region of the ancient Kingdom of Bagan. It is thought that probably more than 13,000 temples, pagodas and other religious structures were built here. It is a unique heritage built between the 11th and 12th centuries in this area. Together with Angkor and Borobudur it is among the most significant archaeological sites in Southeast Asia and the world.🏛🗿 • 🇮🇹Bagan (Birmania) è un sito archeologico forse meno noto del complesso di Angkor in Cambogia, ma è molto simile ad esso, e storicamente ed archeologicamente più interessante. Zona archeologica di Bagan è il nome formale usato per designare la regione storica dell'antico Regno di Bagan. Si pensa che probabilmente qui siano stati costruiti più di 13.000 tra templi, pagode e altre strutture religiose. Si tratta di un patrimonio unico edificato tra l'XI e il XII secolo in quest'area. Insieme ad Angkor e Borobudur è tra i siti archeologici più significativi del Sud-Est asiatico e del mondo.🏛🗿 📸 by @donaldhyip • 🏺 • Go see my stories to know something new about archaeology and travel!🏛🗿 • • #archaeologicaltrip #bagan #myanmar #myanmartrip #myanmartravel #myanmartourism #myanmar🇲🇲 #instamyanmar #visitmyanmar #temple🙏 #temples #archeology #archeologia #templearchitecture #ancientruins #asiatravel #archaeology #asiatrip #asia_vacations #asiantravel #visitasia #travelgram #antiquearchaeology #adventures #explore #natureaddict
only the speakers I got so far and the cab will be done in a month give or take. they are 5″ alnico speaker Fisher branded. the frame looks like Oxford and I believe they came from Oxford.
The next evolutionary step for humans. Some of us will make the conscious choice to have our bodies integrated into a machine such as a spacecraft or a probe. By integrated I mean encased in a pod permanently connected up tp a “Matrix-like” system where our bodily functions are taken care of by the pod and where the sensors of the ship become our senses and we are the mind and soul of the machine.
A perfect blend of machine and flesh.
Over time our bodies would mesh with the pod and we would look very little like a human. To human eyes we would seem grotesque and removal from life support would mean death, So, our bodies remain in a windowless pod greatly shielded from radiation, heat or the effect of gravity or g-forces.
Then as this hybrid being, we could survive where no human could survive. We could live indefinitely if we slowed the body down while keeping the brain functioning. We could explore the universe this way. We would be more than human.
“Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. From what I’ve tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate to say that for destruction ice Is also great and would suffice.” Robert Frost (1874-1963)
The end of the world may come slowly, but it’s inevitable. Our sun, exhausting the hydrogen-fuel of the core, will successively burn the outer layers and doing so becoming hotter and expanding in size. In estimated 7,59 billion years a red giant will engulf the earth – or whatever still be left over of the once blue planet.
Already in 1,6 billion years the hotter sun will evaporate the oceans, and plate tectonics, whiteout enough water acting as lubricant in subduction zones, will stop. Without plate tectonics erosion will become a dominant factor. The increased radiation of sun will modify the chemical composition of earth’s atmosphere. The light hydrogen will also “evaporate” into space and the heavy oxygen will accumulate on the surface of earth. In this denser atmosphere rare, but strong, rainstorms will cause large mudflows in the last mountain ranges. Mountains will be eroded and basins filled with sediments and earth’s surface will become a plain desert. The iron in the sediments will react with the oxygen and earth’s colors will change into a permanent red, like planet Mars today. In the dense atmosphere temperatures will still rise, dissolving gypsum and other sulphur-bearing rocks. The free sulphur will react with the traces of vapor left in the atmosphere and it will rain sulphuric acid from earth’s sky.
In 7,5 billion years the expanding sun will gravitationally lock earth and one side will now face always towards sun. In the sunny side the temperature of earth’s surface will rise to 2.200°C, on the dark side of earth the temperature, without an isolating atmosphere, could plunge to -240°. Basalt, one of the most common rocks on earth, melts at 1.100-1.200°C, on the sunshine side it will be so hot that a molten magma-ocean forms… and it will start to evaporate. Between the hot side and cool side of earth the evaporated elements, like iron and silica, will form rain and like today snowflakes form a landscape composed of snow, iron- sodium-, magnesium- and potassium-flakes will form an eerie landscape composed of these elements. Rock-glaciers will descend from the mountains to the shores and icebergs of rock will float into the magma-ocean.

didn’t expect any noticeable difference between them. but there are actually. Sennheiser 1/8″ to 1/4″ phone plug adapter sounds way better
