Our mission

Are you that special person who - weary from trudging the endless superhighways - just longs to camp next to a glorious oasis of the mind? Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

Sick Chinese kids doing bit for our environment


More than 600 children in two Chinese villages are being treated for lead poisoning.

So what is behind the demand for lead in China? Here's an answer:
"Lead is going to be an important metal to help us combat things such as global warming," said U.S. Silver's Hartmann, noting that energy from solar panels is stored in lead-acid batteries.

"It's a little bit ironic," he added, "that the green movement is such a large user of lead."
Cadmium, a by-product of lead mining, is also a major component of solar panels.

Earlier this year, Australia announced a major of investment of taxpayer funds in solar panels, most of which are expected to come from China. China is (naturally) the world's largest producer of solar cells.
