Scientists are so clever with naming animals.

No you don’t even know these birds call actually sounds like its saying go away and what it does is it hangs around large groups of herbivores and when a predator shows up it will just start shouting GO AWAY GO AWAY and then all the gazelles and zebras and such will take off.

Heres a great video

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:

Just a friendly reminder that using a toilet is highly disgusting and offensive to toiletkin as well as cultural appropriation unless you are toiletkin so please stop.

This is it. This is Tumblr in a nutshell.

tumblr in a nutshell is people looking at obvious troll blogs and pretending to believe them to validate their internalized transphobia and otherkin hate

Submitted: Why did the chicken cross the road? is the worst joke ever written. Is it some sort of obscure meta-commentary on poultry humor? Is it pure, naked cynicism; or a kind of tired, petulant world weariness (what the Germans call Weltschmerz)? This, essentially, is the way the joke works: “Here’s a set-up with a touch of whimsy.”"Oh, I like it. I can’t wait to hear the imaginative answer!""Go to hell. You were a fool for hoping."Or am I reading too much into it and it’s just lazy, horrible joke writing? Please advise.

As if a switch had been turned, as if an eye had been blinked, as if some phantom force in the universe had made a move eons beyond our comprehension, suddenly, there was no giant, no monster, no thing called "Phantom" to be followed!

The line between science fiction and science fact is microscopically thin! You have witnessed the line being shaved even thinner! But is the phantom gone?
