the winter soldier:
My name is David, currently 16. I'm an above-average height, and I'm extremely clumsy - so much so that stairs have become my mortal enemy.
I have had so many identity crisis' that my alter-ego now has its own alter-ego, and his name is Carlo.
My most sought-after thing is the song that doesn't wear out. Oh, and perhaps an end to my constant teen-angst.
And, um... That's me.

Apparently it’s a thing to crochet sweaters for turtles

BUT HOW DO YOU CHOOSE A FAVORITE WHEN THEY’RE ALL SO CUTE
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:

Galaxy Quest (1999)
I had originally not wanted to see Galaxy Quest because I heard that it was making fun of Star Trek. Then Jonathan Frakes rang me up and said ‘You must not miss this movie! See it on a Saturday night in a full theater.’ And I did, and of course I found it was brilliant. Brilliant. No one laughed louder or longer in the cinema than I did. - Patrick Stewart
Galaxy Quest is a cinematic masterpiece and if you believe otherwise you should seek help immediatelyOne of my favourite facts is that George Takei has called it “chillingly realistic”.
