A picture taken on May 3, 2014, (released June 12), shows people visiting “The Gateway to Hell,” a huge burning gas crater in the heart of Turkmenistan’s Karakum desert. The fiery pit was the result of a simple miscalculation by Soviet scientists in 1971 after their boring equipment suddenly drilled through into an underground cavern and a deep sinkhole formed. Fearing that the crater would emit poisonous gases, the scientists took the decision to set it alight, thinking that the gas would burn out quickly and this would cause the flames to go out. But the flames have not gone out in more than 40 years.

  7. Literary Fantasy Question

    gailsimone:

    You can go into the reality of a book and save ONE character from a favorite novel.

    Any novel, any character. Then you get to read that book where the character you chose has a happy, rather than tragic, ending.

    Whom do you save?

    This is an impossibly difficult question. Yes Tonks & Lupin was a travesty, but Harry was old enough and confident enough that he didn’t need them as godparents anymore. Sirius’ death was devastating but it was a necessary death (both for plot and for Harry). But for me, the saddest death in any fantasy/sci-fi novel is the death of Frenchurch in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy “trilogy.”
