Wait wait wait is this like a you hook it up to a computer and type on the light and then words?

yup. simple bluetooth hookup and boom. you’re done. you can now type on your desk with a hologram to send texts, make notes, do literally anything a keyboard can do.

Woah. Woah. WOAH

What society has come to

UGH I HATE BEING ABLE TO FIND ANY INFORMATION I NEED ONLINE UGHHH TECHNOLOGY IS BAD BURN THE INTERNET LET US GO BACK TO A SIMPLER TIME BEFORE ELECTRICITY WHEN WE COULD ALL DIE EVERY TIME WE GOT A COLD

Idk it looks more like Albert’s just sick of explainin shit to people over and over again

Actually you’re probably right. Einstein was a huge critic of the act of committing things to memory that could easily just be looked up.

He thought it was a waste of time, effort, and mental resources that could be out to much better use.

Einstein would probably be the type to just ask you to Google something. Hell if for no other reason than if you asked him something he would say that he didn’t remember it himself.

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

  • Brain:

    4 am? Time to learn how to play the piano!

  • Me:

    *creates makeshift keyboard from duct tape*

  • Brain:

    Scratch that, let's play the violin now!

  • Me:

    Everybody else is trying to sleep...

  • Brain:

    Let's print out a butt load of sheet music!

  • Me:

    Okay, but sleep is pretty important....

  • Brain:

    Oh hey, it's 5 am.

  • Me:

    Sleep?

  • Brain:

    Nah, let's go back to the piano thing, I liked that.

New Slaves

This is so disgusting omg

it really is.

fucking wow

This is so sad

yall making too much of a deal of this who cares 

Yeah sure, who cares.
Who cares when people would rather line up like this every year to spend hundreds on a damn phone than give/donate even just a few dollars to a charity or help out those in need and struggling to sustain themselves.
Spend hundreds to buy an iPhone or spend less than a hundred to change a life?

this just in: human brain incapable of caring about more than 1 thing in a lifetime, iphone owners will never spend money on anything other than a phone ever, buying products of own money because you want them makes one incapable of empathy or knowing about charity

in other news: tumblr users still pretentious shits on high horses who think that they’re better than everyone based on nothing but holier-than-thou assumptions

I don’t know what I was expecting

i expected cute noises

Are you trying to tell me that’s not cute?

Today, I acquired some longcats—which I admit is a very misleading name seeing as, unlike mantises, millipedes are not actually cats.
I was always very fond of these critters when I’d see them on my morning walks, but I had no idea just how adorable their mannerisms are.  Like—firstly; did you know these little guys actually appear to sleep??  They find a nice, cozy corner, tuck their heads in just slightly, tuck in their antennae, and soon become dead to the world.  One of my males (who I’ve named Galileo) had ‘buried’ himself under my bag while I was photographing the other two—and when I lifted the bag to retrieve him, he was chillin in a position that looked an awful lot like this. A prod didn’t do much to rouse him, and it was only when I attempted to nudge him into my hand that he finally (and reluctantly) started to scuttle again. By the time I placed him into the terrarium, he was back to full alert, but quickly hunkered down back to sleep once he was placed into his proper home.
Secondly, these little animals have the most cuddly looking mating posture 8|  I was taking photos of Galileo when the other male (Pythagoras) and the female (Hypatia) decided they “loved each other very much”—and before I had any idea what was going on with the pair, Pythagoras was trying to find the length of her hypotenuse (if you know wat I mean). In practically a split second, he was coiled around her like you see in the photos, and—I know they’re doin’ the do—but ngl, it’s a pretty adorable looking million armed hug. I guess I’ll be expecting babies. These guys waste no time!  I don’t know if millipedes have a place on this blog. What do you guys think? Millipede Mondays, yay or nay?
