I want to know, what exactly was that crack about Central City meant to imply?

The Haunting Hill of Crosses, Lithuania

Just outside the city of Šiauliai, an extremely strange sight stretches up the Lithuanian countryside - hundreds of thousands of crosses. Crosses of every shape and size, including rosaries, are crowded together in huge piles across the entire hillside. The history of the Hill of Crosses (Kryžių kalnas) is as mysterious as the place itself. No one knows exactly when the custom of leaving crosses there began, but it most likely started in 1831.

The area once housed a fort and the year 1831 marked the end of the November Uprising during which Poland sought independence from the Russian Empire. This resulted in the loss of some 40,000 men. Another rebellion, the January Uprising which lasted from 1863 to 1865, saw the loss of another 20,000. Many Lithuanian families weren’t able to retrieve the bodies of their loved ones, so they put up symbolic crosses where the former hill fort was located to honor them.

When Lithuania gained its independence from the Soviet Union in 1990, the amount of crosses grew to incredible numbers. The Hill of Crosses also gained international notoriety when Pope John Paul II visited in 1993 and prayed there.

The number of crosses left at the site continues to grow daily. Although the Hill of Crosses can appear somewhat haunting and eery, it stands as a reminder of the horrors of war and the fight for freedom across the world.

After episode 6 of Outlander, I do not know that is the most horrible character in recent years on TV, King Joffrey (GOT) or Black Jack Randall (Outlander)




Place your bets

I’m just really glad that they both have horrible deaths….

"Besides, what kind of friend would I be if I left ye to that mad bastard Randall?"

I love his relationship with Claire, I think it’s nice to see something that’s complicated. He’s quite honourable and true to his word, which I think in this period is quite admirable.

'Jamie replies that he does not mind that she’s not a virgin, so long as she doesn’t mind that he is….Virginity, of course, shouldn’t be such a big deal, but in this particular context, the reveal further supports my theory that Outlander gender-fucks assumptions about the romance and adventure genres. How many virginal young maidens have we met—on television, in movies, in books—who must be “corrupted” and taught the ways of carnal pleasure by their confident counterparts? A lot. But Jamie and Claire continue to subvert expectations.'
