Question of the day: If the person you loved switched genders, could you still love them?
In Shenzhen, China, a new attraction at the Theme Park ‘Window of the World’ – a cultural theme park – is called Samadhi: 4D Experience of Death, where it actually tries to give riders the feeling of being dead, cremated, and reborn.

The visitor goes on a journey through a morgue of sorts, then they are placed into a casket and put on a conveyor belt for “cremation” – a simulated sudden blast of hot air over the rider to simulate flames, and finally an image of a womb will appear, and riders must crawl until they reach a white, padded room, where they are reborn.
Just hearing about it makes me feel claustrophobic.
Also in China, so far this year, people have tried to Open Emergency Plane doors 12 times in China on planes that were taxing or at a standstill, and one man was put on trial in the country’s first legal case of this nature.
No one knows why this has been happening, aside from probably impatient passengers who don’t understand basic aviation safety knowledge. (Do they say, “please don’t open emergency doors before the plane has come a to a complete stop” in the safety demonstration at the beginning of each plane ride? Or is that common sense?)
Mr. Piao stood trial on Monday for opening an emergency door on Feb. 12th, delaying the flight for four hours, and severely disrupting airport operations.
Sweden has come up with the best bashing of Russia’s homophobic laws introduced under the Putin administration in 2013. Sweden is sending out a message: “This way if you are gay” across Swedish waters to Russian submarines with a “subsurface sonar system” officially titled as The Singing Sailor Underwater Defense System (nicknamed the “gay sailor”).
The device features a neon, flashing sign of a dancing sailor, naked except for a cap and small white briefs, surrounded by hearts and “Welcome to Sweden: Gay since 1944″ (1944 is the year homosexuality was decriminalized in Sweden) is written in English and Russian.
On a similar note, an anti-gay group with the domain WarningsOfWrath.com has been directing their supporters to this website, promoting homophobia.
What they didn’t know is that an anonymous Reddit User noticed that the domain name expired, bought it, and redirected it so for weeks, the anti-gay group had been sending people who typed in WarningsOfWrath.com to ScaryFuckers.com, a website for Gay Porn.
The reddit user wrote: “They condemned gays and Rock Music outside Carolina Rebellion. I bought the (unexpectedly expired) domain from their signs and pointed it at gay porn of people who probably like rock music. Fair?”
