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:

I am both amazed and horrified of nature as we all should be

This post (or at least that picture) is a lie.
“This tree is often referred to as the “upside-down tree” by students, as its branches resemble roots. The reason for the unusual shape comes from its cultivation method: rather than sprouting from a seed, this tree grows from a Camperdown elm cutting that’s grafted onto the trunk of a Wych elm.”

Petra Pan, the Girl who wouldn’t grow up : a masterpost

Hi guys ! I know an old Petra Pan masterpost exists somewhere, but it’s actually not mine, it’s reposted, so if you could just… not reblog it and maybe reblog / like this one instead, it would be super nice and super cool of you :3 ! The other one has like…. 87k of notes so it’s really cool to know that so many of you liked my art, but it’s not even credited so I didn’t know it was so popular before a friend of mine showed it to me ?

Besides, this one really has the full series -with Ms. Flee and the lost girls included- and I would be really happy if they could get the love they deserve !

How ‘Ching Chong’ Became The Go-To Slur For Mocking East Asians






Spoiler alert: Like many bad things in life, some of the first usages of the slur that we could find are from children’s rhymes.

Boscia Cool Blue Calming Mask and Bright White Mask
Ugh, summer weather.  Not only does it make me feel like a sticky monster whose only superpower is to produce buckets of sweat, it also causes my skin to go crazy.  My cheeks and nose get really red, and breakouts not only increase in number but stray beyond their usual T-zone territory.  What’s a girl to do?
My answer is to lather myself in masks.
