Doesn’t that look beautiful?

Like something you’d find on one of those soft/pale/rosy/grunge blogs? 

Well nothing too rosy on my blog. 

The Bolton Strid in England is one of the most innocent looking streams. 

Though it looks like you could just hop across the rocks, but if you miss you will die for sure. It packs very rapid currents just a couple of feet below its surface. No one really knows how deep it really is. Nobody who has ever fallen into the Strid has survived. It has a 100% fatality rate.

It’s always the things I google expecting to be false that wind up being horribly true.

“Ahh-choooo!”
"Bless you, evolution."
"Thanks. Ugh, I wish I could get over this miserable cold."
"Yeah, it sounds bad. Maybe you should just take the day off, huh?"
"I don’t know if I can."
"What do you mean? Of course you can."
"I already took a lot of sick days last ice age. I don’t want to look lazy. Ahh-choooo!”
"Better to rest than do a shoddy job because you’re sick, though, right?"
"It’s okay, I can manage. Besides, I think the cold medicine is starting to kick in. See, I already made this bobtail squid.”
"Oh. Um…"
"It’s good, right?"
"It’s…"
"I definitely think the medicine is helping."
