Circus Tree: Six individual sycamore trees were shaped, bent, and braided to form this.

how the hell do you bend and braid a tree

Actually pretty easy. Trees don’t reject tissue from other trees in the same family. You bend the tree to another tree when it is a sapling, scrape off the bark on both trees where they touch, add some damp sphagnum moss around them to keep everything slightly moist and bind them together. Then wait a few years- The trees will have grown together. You can use a similar technique to graft a lemon branch or a lime branch or even both- onto an orange tree and have one tree that has all three fruits.Frankentrees.

As a biologist I can clearly state that plants are fucking weird and you should probably be slightly afraid of them.

On that note! At the university (UBC) located in town, the Agriculture students were told by their teacher that a tree flipped upside down would die. So they took an excavator and flipped the tree upside down. And it’s still growing. But the branches are now the roots, and the roots are now these super gnarly looking branches. Be afraid.

But Vi, how can you mention that and NOT post a picture? D:

You’re never done Space Jamming.

- The GM, after being asked if the trained flies were finished with their rendition of the theme to “Space Jam” (via outofcontextdnd)

It’s also too bad that Zard X can’t get draco meteor, it would be perfect on a DD set, alongside earthquake and firepunch/flare blitz. Not sure of it would even hit harder than a +1 dragon claw with the tough nails boost, though.

Charizard X is way too good of a tank. Fire/Dragon is pretty much cheating as a defensive type, and will-o-wisp and roost make it live forever. Everybody expects dragon dance and predict totally wrong.
As a plus, Rotom-Wash can’t do shit to it, either.

Studying insect orders is a pain in the ass, there are way too many of them and they seem to change every other day. Termites and cockroaches are now in the same order? Springtails aren’t even considered insects anymore? Mantids and stick insects are in separate orders, too? 
I love it.

SeaWorld just got busted by a US government agency for violating the Animal Abuse Act — and we may have a rare chance to end its animal cruelty for good

In a surprise move, a Californian congressmen has just introduced a law to make it illegal to keep orcas in captivity. This could change everything — but SeaWorld is already mounting a vicious campaign to defeat this congressman’s brave move. We need to tell the State of California that the public won’t accept SeaWorld’s imprisonment of orcas any longer.’

Enact the Orca Welfare and Safety Act to make it illegal to hold orcas in captivity for performance or entertainment purposes.

Sign on to stop SeaWorld from imprisoning whales for profit.

HOLY HECK: This is actually SUPER close to meeting the goal!

Come on! Let’s spread it like wildfire!

It’s super cool being able to see orcas, and seaworld probably creates a lot of interest in young people of whales and dolphins and marine life altogether, but these are dudes that don’t want to be there and know they don’t want to be there.
