And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Land of the Lost - Issue No. 008: Disneyland of China

Talk about absolutely creepy and cool at the same time.  Ever hear of the fake Disneyland of China?   Well, if you haven't here's a little synopsis courtesy of The Washington Post.
“Wonderland,” which is situated on a 100-acre plot of land 45 minutes outside of Beijing, was intended to be a huge tourist destination. But according to Reuters, construction was halted in 1998 when farmers and local government sparred over property prices. A small “town,’ the skeletal remains of a castle, and the metal framework of a huge pavilion are all that remain, and the site is completely open to explorers.
Wonderland Amusement Park was to be the largest Amusement park in all of Asia, but unfortunately it never came to existence. And probably a good thing; Farmers have taken over and planted crops on the abandoned property. This is just another example of wasted money and resources. Families were uprooted and moved, just to build something that never came to be.

Scroll down and see the various pictures I found online, and watch a creepy video by Catherine Hyland after the jump.

It's a horror theme park in itself at night I bed. Just the fact that you have all of this with absolutely no one there, is just down right creepy.
