What is dead may never die.

I guess it's a white people's problem. Nothing from Asia or Africa, even the one in India was a Mooslim structure.

Yet another 8 tragedies that need never have happened...

If only more people took the time to learn basic building CPR!

Nice link, subby, thank you.

miss diminutive: What is dead may never die.


That does not sound right. It should read thus:

"That is not dead which can eternal lie. And with strange aeons even death may die."

Or construct buildings that float. When will we learn?

Amazing? Not so much.

While Lovecraft is always classic casual disregard, I think miss diminutive was actually going for Martin, in which case the response is:

What is dead may never die, but rises again, harder and stronger

Not quite as cool as the elevated train tracks that run under the 60 acre pond behind my parents house but still cool.

Mmph. Aren't they basically saying the same thing?

I wish I had the balls to put that Lovecraft line in my e-mail signature. Here's the body of my e-mail, here's our organization's official policy which is whatever, here are the requirements for the project, please let me know if you require any additional information, and then my signature. Name, team, organization. And then Lovecraft as an inspirational quote.

Awesome find, subby. When I was a kid, I used to be obsessed with drawing the interiors of buildings that had been half drowned - usually cathedrals. Don't know why this sort of thing still fascinates me, but it does. I'm sure it's because I'm deep and philosophical. Something about the impermanence of human achievements. Yeah. Let's go with that.

I should have explained that better....its just a train trestle about 5 feet tall that runs through the part of the pond thats about 18' deep. I've seen it a few times when the water level drops and occasional if the water gets clear enough. I wish I had a pic but it looks very similar to this. I was being sarcastic on the level of "coolness".

I dunno, that looks like a wonderful thing to play on for kids of all ages.

Ya know, the submarines at Disneyland run on rails....

It actually sucked balls big time to get your fish hook caught up in there because there was little hope to get it out without cutting the line. However the bass loved all that structure and it was nice to troll for crappie as well.

I didn't know the subs were on tracks but i was thoroughly disappointed when I realized we weren't in a real sub that was fully submerged.

Thanks for reminding me I have 9 months until new GoT assholes.


Cool pictures though

Thanks for the link subby. That Lake Reschen in Italy looks like a really nice place. Bonus that its on the border where three countries meet - I think I've found a new vacation destination.

Wasn't there a horror movie set near one of the Italian ones? I have a vague memory of seeing it on SciFi, but can't remember the name.

Oh yeah? We have a submerged pyramid around here. Look up Monte Ne. Should be becoming visible again with this drought.

Churches were probably the only structures built well enough (and tall enough) to withstand prolonged submersion in lake water

8? I though there were hundreds of thousands of properties under water?

I was looking for something out of a Dragonlance book to quote, but I can't find it.

I suddenly sort of want to read those again. I bet they've held up really well since I was, what?, 12?

It's not like India is part of Asia.

Russia, neither.

First time I went as a little kid I couldn't wait to ride the submarine because I had the 20,000 Leagues book and record set (It's been well over thirty years since I heard it and I can still sing the song at the end). As we are sitting in the 'sub' about to depart the ride operator turns to me and says 'You can hold your breath for a long time, right?' I freaked out. They calmed me down and told me that it didn't go under water and it was on a track. Then I was just kind of disappointed. Suspension of disbelief my ass.

CS,B.

I pondered this for a while as well. If a town/village is insignificant enough to be wiped off the map intentionally by a reservoir (which it seems like most of these were), the church was probably the only building in town constructed well enough to withstand being underwater.
