Live by the tusk, trampled to death by the umbrella stand. Good riddance. Hope he suffered.

It's beautiful here. So many stunning buildings. The walk in/home is quite full on, getting a bus takes the same time so would rather walk. Might have to get my bike roadworthy soon.

Really not sure why this is a thing? If it was integrated into a case then, ok, possibly? But this power polo is just awful.
Wireless charging is nice. It really is - setting your phone down and picking it back up, without having to plug it in and remove the plug each time, saves... by Michael Crider in Accessories, News

Great read about something I'd never considered - the fact that 19th and early 20th century translators had to re-edit & reinvent science fiction stories to fit the narratives their countrymen would understand. Interesting stuff for sci-fi fans and word geeks.
When early science fiction novels were first translated into Chinese, the translators took a lot of liberties with the material, reinventing Jules Verne for Chinese readers. Author Ken Liu (The Grace of Kings) explains how this helped inspire him, in turn, to reinvent Chinese traditions for Western fantasy readers.

Can anyone identify this? Looks like the Saarlac pit from star wars. My reaction would be "kill it with fire".
 
Anyone know what this is? some sort of fungus came up after rain- looks like something from science fiction #fungus  #fungi

Amazing place. It's like they scooped out a 40 something comic fans brain and plastered the walls with it. Best. Veggie. Burger. I've. Had. In. Decades. The meaty stuff looked damn good and my fellow diners were really happy.

Great venue for a family day out. There is something to appeal to everyone there. Massive site containing farmyard animals, a zoo with a good variety of animals, outdoor play, an amazing indoor softplay, a brilliant selection of vintage fairground rides housed inside and loads of space so you don't feel herded in. Lots to do there on the cheap, but the paid for rides and attractions aren't extortionate, unlike many other attractions and you don't feel that you've been held upside down to gouge out the last of your small change before you leave (I'm looking at you Wookey Hole!). You can pretty much spend the whole day here if you want to, there's so much to see and do.

Cracking little gem of a pub close enough to the centre to be convenient but enough of a track to avoid the issues (read idiots) you get down at the centre/waterfront/park street. A great selection of independent beers and a couple of decent farmhouse ciders. Well decorated with original gas lamps working. The real killer icing on the cake is the record deck and eclectic mix of 7 and 12 inch vinyl records available for all to route through and put on at their leisure. This gives you hours of entertainment and is much more fun than just feeding pound coins into a jukebox. Totally recommended!

After getting cold feet about camping after the deluge of rain this summer we booked a week at Bluestone. Having done Centre Parcs before I expected more of the same and was right to a degree. It's the same sort of set up, however this is more of a destination to use as a base to explore Pembrokeshire rather than stay onsite as you would at Centre Parcs. The facilities here are good. I would actually say the cabin we had (basic 4 person) was better equipped and more spacious. It was actually a pleasure cooking each night as everything I needed was to hand (bar a cheese grater). The obvious plus here is the Blue Lagoon swimming pool, which we loved and used every day. The pub served decent enough grog, we ate out one night at "The Yard" which was good grub (although the vegetarian pizzas weren't well labeled which was quite annoying). A bakery, "village shop", arcade, toy and clothing shop completed the village feel. The activity centre killed a hour or two of a rainy day without costing the earth (although much of the extra paid for stuff was just out of age range for our little one much to her disappointment). Hiring a golf buggy to get around on site was fun but not a necessity unless you're really lazy/rotund. You might have to walk a few hills but it's all close together and doesn't take long to wander around. Will probably do it again at some point, as I say its a good place to base yourself if you want to explore this part of Pembrokeshire.
