by Susana Polo | 1:12 pm, November 22nd, 2011 The Adventures of Pete & Pete ran for twenty-six short films, five half-hour specials, and three seasons of actual greenlit television, the poster kid/show/kid’s show for that early 90′s Nickelodeon sense of “How did anyone know that this was a good idea?” (A feeling just on the other side of “Why did anyone think this was a good idea?”) Our favorite quote from this Saturday’s cast reunion in Los Angeles?

Jellyfish Lake is a marine lake located on Eil Malk island in Palau. Eil Malk is part of the Rock Islands, a group of small, rocky, mostly uninhabited islands in Palau’s Southern Lagoon, between Koror and Peleliu. It is notable for the millions of golden jellyfish which migrate horizontally across the lake daily. photo source Jellyfish Lake is connected to the ocean through fissures and tunnels in the limestone of ancient Miocene reef.

In this design, John Galliano for Dior combined the elements of a robe à la française with the vast crinolined silhouettes of the mid-nineteenth century. The stomacher, open overskirt, and petticoat are expressly eighteenth century, but the huge wired cages that support the skirts over nine feet wide are constructed more like the hoops of the Second Empire than the discrete by comparison panniers of the ancien régime. While the eighteenth-century woman could at least sidle through a doorway, Galliano's beauties, because of the depths of their skirts, would have to torque and deform their hoops to squeeze their way through. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>

Israel's Nature and Parks Authority says "the species now has another chance to survive".
