It’s the weekend. The thought of boozing it up at the club with the last of your single friends seems more unappealing now that you’re in your thirties. You’re a little lonely – plus a lot bored. And you haven’t had sex for so long that you swear you’re a born-again virgin. Right now your ex is…
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.
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:
don’t let tumblr make you believe that
-smoking is cool
-being a narcissistic bitch is acceptable
-trusting nobody is healthy
-starving yourself will make you beautiful
-hating everybody is okay
- that working hard for grades isn’t worth the time
- that having mental health condition is a perk
- that self harm should be romanticized
- that abusive and codependent relationships are cute
- that not being in a minority makes you any less of a person
I’m not for abortion
I’m for every woman having the right to choose what to do with her own body
I’m for preventing the fear of what to do with a child that is unwanted or unplanned
I’m for protecting women from back-ally abortions because they have no other option.
thats why it’s called pro-choice, not pro-abortion
THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO TELL PEOPLE.
