So I just found out that to be an astronaut you can’t be under 5’2” and this is BULLSHIT I never wanted to be an astronaut until I found out I couldn’t and now I feel like a dream has been crushed fuck you NASA
i don’t want to live in a world where we can’t launch danny devito into space
I hope Hannibal ends with Ned from Pushing Daisies finding Hannibal’s murder suit in a dumpster and being like “THIS IS THE BEST DISCOVERY OF MY LIFE”
Interviewer: “so where do you see yourself in five years?”
Me: “I’m shaking hands with Dumbledore I’ve won the house cup”
Somewhere George RR Martin is snapping in Z formation.
Just a reminder:the natural diet of these birds is BONES. Not just bone marrow; actual bone shards. They pick up huge freaking bones from carcasses and drop them onto rocks until they get spiky pieces and then they swallow them. Their stomach acid dissolves bone.
look me in the eye and tell me that’s not a fucking dragon
And they aren’t naturally red like that. That’s self-applied makeup. They find the reddest earth they can to work into their feathers as a status symbol.
And they don’t scavenge other parts of carcases, just the bones. 85-90% of their diet is exclusively bone. Hence why it’s only a myth that these birds would just pick up whole lambs and carry them off. It’s not true, but in German they’re still called Lämmergeier as a result.

This Tree Is Growing 40 Different Kinds Of Fruit At Once
This single (and quite colorfully blossoming) tree grows 40 different varieties of peaches, plums, apricots, nectarines, cherries, and even almonds — but just how does it do it?
It does it through the process of chip grafting. After sculptor Sam Van Aken bought a failing orchard in upstate New York full of hundreds of different fruit trees, he began the pain-staking process of grafting several of the different varieties together into one tree. Six years later, the result is this 40-fruit bearing tree, which includes some heirloom varieties that are centuries old.

Wahhhhhh GMOs are bad wahhhhhhh
this tree is an overachiever
If you take a moment to go to the original article linked within the link provided above like a set of informational nesting dolls, you will note that this tree has absolutely nothing to do with GMOs. The artist responsible for these trees (multiple!) achieved this, as is stated above, via chip grafting, which basically involves securing the a piece of one plant to a holes in a bigger piece of another plant and waiting for them to grow together naturally. I’ll note that the varieties of fruits the artist is trying to preserve in this effort are all rare types that were likely to die out otherwise because they’re not commercially desirable on a large scale. One could even probably interpret this tree existence as a form of protest against the homogenization caused by GMOs and the standardization and mechanization of farming in the US.
