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

yeah, I mean… I support you, people who want to tell tales of coffee shops! but they are physically intense and tasking jobs which require skillz. You will have to train. And sleep.

I love coffeshop AUs, but I definitely have to go in with a certain part of my brain switched off. Much like American HS/College fics written by non-Americans. It’s time for the SELECTIVE BLINDERS.

I did like how they were coworkers, though! I find it 60000% more likely coffeeshop coworkers fall in love than barista/customer. just me?

coworkers have a significantly higher chance of love happening than barista/customer, yes yes yES

also in my experience coffee chop AUs need to be a lot grumpier than they usually are, too

I had THE BIGGEST crush on one of my coworkers for a good year, and I definitely know of a few hookups among some of the others. mostly I wanted to murder the customers.

"When Shelley’s corpse washed ashore, a friend identified it by a copy of Keats’s 1820 volume in the coat pocket, which he knew Shelley had taken with him. Then, after cremation in which Shelley’s heart, hardened by calcium, did not burn, this same friend snatched it from the embers and presented it to Mary Shelley, who kept it thereafter in her desk, wrapped in a copy of ‘Adonais."
