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:

Watch this rare oarfish sighting

AMAGAD OARFISH WHAT

Incase you didn’t know oarfish are very long deep sea fish that rarely if ever come to shallow water; if they do it’s usually because they’re about to kick the bucket.

kinda sad that they only are seen when they’re dying though.

What’s extra freaky is that in their natural habitat, they spend most of their time hovering straight up and down rather than swimming horizontally like we see here and expect from most other sea creatures.

There are other deep sea fish who swim that way, and anglerfish who swim completely upside down. Things get weird in a weightless void of total darkness.

After a lot of rain here in FL these baby frogs appeared. They eerily all faced the same direction.

It’s not even funny how much I relate to this imaginary person.
