Sometime during the night of August 16, 1952, the small town of Ashley, Kansas ceased to exist. At 3:28am on August 17, 1952, a magnitude 7.9 earthquake was measured by the United States Geological Survey. The earthquake itself was felt throughout the state and most of the midwest. The epicenter was determined to be directly under Ashley, Kansas.
When state law enforcement arrived at what should have been the outskirts of the farming community, they found a smoldering, burning fissure in the earth measuring 1,000 yards in length and approximately 500 yards in width. The depth of the fissure was never determined.
After twelve days, the state-wide and local search for the missing 679 residents of Ashley, Kansas, was called off by the Kansas State Government at 9:15pm on the night of August 29, 1952. All 679 residents were assumed to be dead. At 2:27am on August 30, 1952, a magnitude 7.5 earthquake was measured by the United States Geological Survey. The epicenter was situated under what used to be the location of Ashley, Kansas. When law enforcement investigated at 5:32am, they reported that the fissure in the Earth had closed.
In the eight days leading up to the disappearance of the town and its 679 residents, bizarre and unexplainable events were reported by dozens of residents in Ashley, Kansas and law enforcement from the surrounding area.

"I’m a fucking Indian woman who has her own fucking network show," exclaimed an exasperated Mindy Kaling at the SXSW conference in Austin, Texas, when asked by a member of the 2,000-person crowd why there aren’t more women of colour on “The Mindy Project.”
"No one asks any of these other shows that I adore — and I won’t name them because they’re my friends — why no leads on their show are women or women of colour, but I’m the one who gets all of these things.
“It is a little insulting. I don’t run the country, I’m not a political figure, I’m someone writing a show and I want to use funny people. What should I be doing? It’s a little frustrating to me,” Kaling continued.
“People have a higher expectation for me. They say, ‘why aren’t you doing more?’ The answer is: I always want to be doing more, because people should always be doing as much as they possibly can. But my full-time job is not a casting director of ‘The Mindy Project,’ my job is producer-writer-star.”
First of all, people do ask her “friends” (like Lena Dunham) why there are no women or women of color on their shows. People ask these questions of White Male and White female creators all the time. Shit, people ask Shonda Rhimes why there aren’t more Black people on her shows. People stay asking Tyler Perry what his fucking problem is!
"I want to use funny people" So… only White Men are funny?
"What should I be doing?" How about listening to the people, namely, the women and women of color who criticize your show?
"My full-time job is not a casting director…" So she has zero say-so in who gets cast? Really!?
Like I get it’s frustrating to be the torch-bearer for All Women Of Color Creators In TV but… she’s the ONLY South Asian woman creator in TV. Just because she doesn’t want it to mean anything doesn’t mean it shouldn’t. I don’t think people are looking to her to be perfect but they also aren’t looking for her to be so obtuse she can’t see what role her race and/or gender may play in the greater scheme of things.
Denying such a responsibility to people of your same gender and/or race is a privilege, one that we do not have, imho.
And it’s sad that Mindy *has* to be the voice of Women of Color on TV. Because Mindy shouldn’t be the only one with a voice. There should be multiple Mindy’s and Shonda’s creating TV shows. But there’s not and I guess they have to hold up all our hope and dreams for all of us?
Just want Mindy to take her Do Better. Because I know she can. At least I hope she can…
basically my entire relationship with supernatural
This is true.

RUN away from the subscriber in Albemarle, a Mulatto slave called Sandy, about 35 years of age, his stature is rather low, inclining to corpulence, and his complexion light; he is a shoemaker by trade, in which he uses his left hand principally, can do coarse carpenters work, and is something of a horse jockey; he is greatly addicted to drink, and when drunk is insolent and disorderly, in his conversation he swears much, and in his behaviour is artful and knavish. He took with him a white horse, much scarred with traces, of which it is expected he will endeavour to dispose; he also carried his shoemakers tools, and will probably endeavour to get employment that way. Whoever conveys the said slave to me, in Albemarle, shall have 40 s. reward, if taken up within the county, 4 l. if elsewhere within the colony, and 10 l. if in any other colony, from
