With a spate of huge stories breaking in the past few weeks, you might not have caught the massive environmental crisis in northern Mexico that began earlier in August.
According to the Associated Press, local politicians claim that Grupo Mexico, a private mining company in Sonora with a troubling track record of hazardous waste violations in Mexico and the U.S., was slow to report a disastrous fault in its leaching ponds, which hold industrial acid used in the mining process.

Okay can we talk about how freaking awesome the difference between the way Mother Gothel treats Rapunzel, and the way Eugene does? It’s all in the body language. The first thing Mother Gothel does when she sees Rapunzel is check her hair. Eugene is always brushing it from her face. Mother Gothel is always kissing her hair, not Rapunzel. Eugene is always staring into her eyes. Eugene commissioned little girls to braid her hair to make it easier for her, and really liked how she looked free from it’s burden. Mother Gothel took out the braid at soon as she could. And lastly we can’t forget how Mother Gothel practically HUGS the hair, while Eugene’s last act was to cut it so she could live a normal life.
So, am I the only one who has seen this yet, or?
