TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY!!! *0*

Everyone needs to go shower Emily in love now

Forth, and fear no darkness! Arise! Arise, Riders of Theoden! Spears shall be shaken, shields shall be splintered! A sword day, a red day, ere the sun rises!

bluejaws asked: Hi! I'm hoping to study at QUB. I was wondering if you could tell me a little about it please if that is okay. Both positives and negatives. I would be studying architecture and traveling from England. Thank You.

Yeah, of course! Good things: QUB is big, so there are a lot of options when it comes to things like clubs and societies, and it’s not too hard to find somewhere you can fit in and meet likeminded people. They also have lots of study abroad/foreign students, so they really know what’s up with credit transfer and placement and things like that, so you won’t have to worry too much when you’re figuring that stuff out. The library is pretty much wonderful, and I am largely impressed with the facilities on campus in general. Belfast is a cool city, with a lot of history, and there’s a lot to do there. I personally am a fan of poetry readings and have found fun places to go for that, and idk if you’re into queer nightlife, but there are a couple cool places to go for that, too.
Not so good things: it’s a big campus, so sometimes you can feel lost in the crowd, socially and within the system. They don’t go out of their way to help you figure out the university’s system, so you need to be able to be on top of that and somewhat self sufficient. It’s a big city, as far as Irish/North Irish cities go, and things are pretty expensive in general. There are ways to save money, but you still end up spending a lot. Politics can get a little uncomfortable for students from abroad, since oppinions are generally still very strong in Belfast and it’s hard to know what to say/not say.
I don’t know anything about the program you’re interested in, but you should talk to tumblr user petuhhhh because he’s doing architecture at QUB!
Hope that helps :)

I just found out about the horror story that was Action Park, which existed in its “prime” between 1978 and 1996. There have been at least 6 deaths related to its rides, and an untold amount of injuries. “It was given nicknames such as “Traction Park”, ”Accident Park”, and “Class Action Park” by doctors at nearby hospitals due to the number of severely injured parkgoers they treated.” Everything excerpted below is mostly word-for-word from the Wikipedia article.
It contained such incredible rides as;
Cannonball Loop (shown in the picture):  In the mid-1980s GAR built an enclosed water slide, not unusual for that time, and indeed the park already had several. But for this one they decided to build, at the end, acomplete vertical loop of the kind more commonly associated with roller coasters. Employees have reported they were offered hundred-dollar bills to test it. Tom Fergus, who was “one of the idiots”, said “$100 did not buy enough booze to drown out that memory.” One worker told a local newspaper that “there were too many bloody noses and back injuries” from riders, and it was widely rumored, and reported in Weird NJ, that some of the test dummies sent down before it opened had been dismembered. Riders were weighed and hosed down with cold water, required to remove jewelry, and then carefully instructed in how they had to position their bodies to complete the ride.
Alpine Slide: The tracks were made of concrete and fiberglass, which led to numerous serious abrasions on riders who took even mild spills. The sleds were a large factor in the injuries. A stick that was supposed to control speed led, in practice, to just two options on the infrequently maintained vehicles: extremely slow, and a speed described by one former employee as “death awaits.”
Super Go Karts:  The karts were meant to be driven around a small loop track at a speed of about 20 mph (32 km/h) set by the governor devices on them. But park employees knew how to circumvent the governors by wedging tennis balls into them, and were known to do so for parkgoers. As a result, an otherwise standard small-engine car ride became a chance to play bumper cars at 50 mph (80 km/h), and many injuries resulted from head-on collisions. Also, the engines were poorly maintained, and some riders were overcome by gasoline fumes as they drove.
Tank Ride:  In a chainlink fence-enclosed area, small tanks could be driven around, for a fee, for five minutes at a time, with tennis ball cannons that enabled riders to shoot at a sensor prominently mounted on each tank. When workers had to enter the cage to attend to a stuck or crashed tank, which usually happened several times a day, they were often pelted with tennis balls from every direction despite prohibitions against such behavior that could result in expulsion from the park. This gave the tank ride a reputation for being more dangerous for the employees than the patrons.
Super Speedboats: These were set up in a small pond, known by staff to be heavily infested with snakes.
Bumper boats: This ride was supposedly safer, but the engines often leaked gasoline, at least once requiring medical attention for one rider who got too much on his skin.
Kayak Experience:  It was an imitation whitewater course that used submerged electric fans to agitate the water above. Frequently the kayaks got stuck or tipped over, and people had to get out of them to remedy the situation. A 27-year-old man from Long Island got out of his tipped kayak on the Kayak Experience to right it. While doing so, he stepped on a grate that was either in contact with, or came too close to, a section of live wiring for the underwater fans that somehow became exposed and he suffered a severe electric shock, which sent him into cardiac arrest.
