If Earth Had Rings
First off, they would be really pretty to look at. They would also dominate the sky in both night and day at exactly the same place as they would never rise nor set. And at night you would see the Earth’s shadow swing across the rings, like in the 4th photo here.
However, life would be very different on Earth if this were the case. Nocturnal animals would have a hard time being nocturnal, as the light reflecting from the rings would illuminate the night.
Because we are closer to the Sun than Saturn is, the rings would be more rocky than ice, making them less bright but still pretty bright. In fact, you would see far less stars at night (living anywhere other than the equator or the arctic circle) because of the light pollution and not to mention ruin most meteor showers because of that.
During the day the rings would block sunlight in certain regions of the planet creating wild weather cycles and effecting plant life as well. So basically, they would be definitely pretty to look at but they would also make a whole lot of things screwy.

Best response yet to this insane fucking week.
The people of Boston standing as a human wall to prevent the Westboro Baptist church entry to the funeral of the 3 killed in Monday’s bombing. They are singing God Bless America . This is what America is all about.

Costume and all accessories made by me. :) I need to find some actual lace for that scarf (gold lace was impossible to come by at the time) or at least shorten it. And the gloves are inaccurate since high res pics weren’t out when I made it, but nothing a little paint won’t fix!
EEEEEE!!!! Let me love you!!!!! <3 <3 <3 :D :D :D
Spoiler: I think Clark Kent is hiding a secret…

Advertising: you’re doing it right. (Yes it needed to be said again because whoever thought of this is a genius.)
If loving Rumbelle is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.
Just a quick splice of my four OUAT costumes so far. Two Belles and two Rumples. I tried to grab full body photos of each. I’m so excited to continue adding to my costume list this year!

If slurs are “just words”, why do the words “you’re a racist” offend you so much?
This house is directly across from Westboro Baptist Church, the notorious hate group. You know the one, with all the ”GOD HATES FAGS!” protest signs. The guys that protest the funerals of children, soldiers and celebrities. Yeah, those guys.
This house was bought a few months ago and turned into a LGBT rights group’s HQ. WBC had no idea… until today… when the group “came out” and painted the outside of the home with gay pride flag colors. Right. Across. The. Street.
Now, WBC has to look at that house. Every day. Every. Day. Rock on!
