I'd participate in Advanced Portals, as long as GLADOS isn't involved. And the kid in me is thrilled they're making The Floor is Lava a sport. xP
Ultimate ampersand looks like a party though. I'd be into that sport.
They need to leave those zebras alone!
@BeannachtOraibh I really hope so too
@TerrecaRiley Hopefully, a typo, and nothing to do with vaginas!

What do you know about the legend of moon cake of Vietnamese people?
It is said that, in the past, there was a fairy in the sky named Hang Nga, she was very beautiful and worked hard to govern a shimmering Moon. She loves children very much, so her dream is to come down to earth to play with them, but because the rules of the fairy world do not allow it. Legend of moon cake One day, Ngoc Hoang held a contest "Make cakes on the full moon day" on the full moon day of August - the day when the moon is the brightest and fullest of the year, whoever can make the most delicious, most beautiful and most fancy cakes will be honored. Reward whatever you want. Hang Nga is very interested, eager to join the contest right away. When she came to earth to consult, she met Cuoi - a man who specializes in lying, every night Cuoi gathers children under the banyan tree at the top of the village to tell gossip. In addition to "lie" talent, Cuoi is very good at cooking, he often makes cakes for the children in the village to eat, so the children love Cuoi. Hang Nga knew that was very happy and asked Cuoi to make a new kind of cake with her, so Cuoi came up with an initiative to just put all the ingredients together and bake it, which are eggs, melon seeds, meat, sesame, lotus seeds, sausages… And strangely enough, the cakes came out of the oven with a rich aroma, and the children who ate them all complimented that they were delicious, although it was not very beautiful, but it was the best cake that the children enjoyed. It was time to return to heaven, Hang Nga brought delicious unnamed cakes to heaven to compete and bid farewell to her lovely friends on earth, goodbye to the lying but talented and kind Cuoi. . But because Cuoi was attached to her and didn't want to leave her, he held her hand tightly and strangely, there was a supernatural power that pulled him and the banyan tree to the moon. Climbing up the banyan tree he could see the children playing in the world. Sometimes, when he misses home and misses his children, Cuoi can only sit and cry and be sad. As for Hang Nga, her unique cake won the first prize and was named "moon cake" by the Jade Emperor and granted her a wish. She wishes that every year on the full moon day of August, she will be able to share joy and play with children with Cuoi Canoe on earth. The wish was accepted and Ngoc Hoang named the full moon day of August "Mid-Autumn Festival" - a fun festival for children. Since then, every Mid-Autumn Festival, Ms. Hang and Uncle Cuoi come down to earth to bring joy to the children. Moon cake has since become an indispensable special dish on this day. From then on, every full moon day in August, when the moon is at its brightest and roundest, people hold a lantern procession, a dragon dance and a lion dance under the moonlight to celebrate the day Uncle Cuoi, Hang and the Rabbits came down to earth. play. Mooncakes are made into the shape of the moon to commemorate the evening moonlit festival that children are used to calling the Mid-Autumn Festival.
[Ladies' Week] Dara Torres - "Age is Just a Number"
So, @shannonl5 planned this awesome event, "Ladies' Week" (check out ~Announcing: Ladies' Week Event!~ just in case you haven't heard about it!). And in celebration of this awesome event, I wanted to start out with a female athlete that has inspired me: Dara Torres! Just in case you guys have never heard about Dara Torres, she is a former competitive swimmer who is also a twelve-time Olympic medalist and a former world record-holder in three events (50-meter freestyle, 4x100-meter freestyle relay, and 4x100-meter medley relay). But her medals and world records don't capture her whole story. There's more. Torres has competed in five different olympics: 1984 Los Angeles, 1988 Seoul, 1992 Barcelona, 2000 Sydney, and 2008 Beijing. That's right. Five different Olympics over the span of twenty-four years. She was 17 when she competed in her first ever Olympics and she took home a gold medal. She was 41 when she competed in her last one and took a silver medal home. Her life was definitely something you would not call perfect. She was already the oldest member on the U.S. swim team at the age of 33 during the 2000 Sydney Olympics. She could not get pregnant at the age of 35. She was divorced twice by the age of 37. She had her first daughter at the age of 39. Her father also passed away that same year. But as Torres put it perfectly, "But when I was 41 and I woke up in a dorm in the Olympic Village in Beijing, I didn’t feel old. I felt merely—and, yes, happily—middle-aged. ‘The water doesn’t know how old you are.’" For her, age was just merely a number and her dedication and passion for swimming gave her the courage to try out for the 2008 Summer Olympics despite the personal barriers she faced. Torres wasn't quite finished though. After the 2008 Olympics, she underwent a knee surgery, but jumped back in the pool as soon as she was ready to swim once again. And she competed in the U.S. swimming trials to earn a spot on the 2012 London Olympics team for the 50-meter freestyle. She however was denied a spot. Jessica Hardy won first place with 24.50 seconds and Kara Lynn Joyce took the remaining spot. Dara was nine-hundredths of a second behind her sixth Olympics. She was 45 at the time. Even though she did not make it for the 2012 Olympics, she had no regrets, because she gave everything she had. She simply hugged her daughter, Tessa, and congratulated her fellow swimmers. [Video: 2008 Beijing Olympics Women's 4x100 Freestyle Relay Final/Torres's Last Olympic Medal] She has been such an inspiration for me and people all around the world. We sometimes put a limit on ourselves without even giving our best shot. Torres however never, ever made any excuses and simply focused on achieving her goals. I would like to end this card with my favorite Torres quote: "You don't have to put an age limit on your dreams."
