Somewhere on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, nestled at the foot of a desert mountain range, sits a peculiar sight that is almost completely out of place: hundreds of seats for an outdoor movie theater. Estonian photographer Kaupo Kikkas recently visited the desolate location and brought back these amazing shots of a decaying dream. He shares via his blog that the theater was built not too long ago by a man from France with considerable means. Tons of old seats and a generator were hauled in from Cairo, not to mention a giant screen that looked like the sail of a ship.
Everything was set for opening night, with one small problem. Kikkas says the locals weren’t particularly keen on the whole idea and decided to discreetly sabotage the generator. A single movie was never screened. So now it sits in the middle of a desert, a random movie theater in the middle of nowhere. You can still see it on Google Maps.
doctor who is such a deceptive fandom like at first you just think there’s 7 seasons no big. but then there are two spinoffs. then there’s 700 episodes of classic who. then there’s the audio dramas. and they have many, many spinoffs. then there’s the books. and don’t forget the comics. and then there’s gallifreyan history and wow my friend if you think you know anything about doctor who you are wrong.
the doctor who fandom is bigger on the inside
i followed my heart and it led me into the fridge
My mind screams Victorias Secret model, my heart screams eat as many chicken nuggets as you can in 30 minutes
It would mean the world to me if you took a few minutes to read this..
Let’s start with picture #1: Somewhere along the way, I was taught that tan skin was pretty skin and pretty girls had tan skin. So last summer I decided that I wanted to be one of these pretty tan girl. As you can see, I ended up pretty tan for a blonde, blue-eyed girl. It was the tamest I’ve ever been. This came about by working out in the sun all summer (forgetting sunscreen most days) and occasional visits to the local tanning bed. A few weeks after I took this picture I realized something was wrong. A mole by my collarbone that I had for as long as I could remember, had started changing shape. I decided it was better to be safe than sorry, so off to my doctor I went. She decided to take a biopsy and said it was probably nothing to worry about. A few weeks later I got a phone call telling me I had to come back in.
Picture #2: After countless doctor and specialist appointments, I found out that I did NOT have skin cancer. But what I did find out, was that the mole I had was in the stages of turning into it. I was in the ‘precancer’ stage and they wanted to get everything out before that changed. So for a mole not bigger than a pinky fingernail, they cut me 6.5 cm wide, 3 cm across, and 3 cm deep, then sewed me all up. They took no chances and wanted to make sure every bit of that mole was gone. And that’s how I ended up with picture #2.
I cannot even imagine what it would’ve been like if I actually had skin cancer… I hope I’ll never have to find out. I also hope none of you have to find out. This is why I am absolutely begging you all, everyone of you not to tan. Or at the very least, stay out of tanning bed. Also make sure to pay attention to your skin and if you notice any changes get to the doctor ASAP.
I am now about 5 shades lighter than I was in that picture. And I am totally fine with that, because you know what’s prettier than tan skin? Healthy skin. You only have one chance with your skin, take care of it.
do you ever wonder how a character is doing after a series is over
