This miniature ecosystem has been thriving in an almost completely isolated state for more than forty years. It has been watered just once in that time.
The original single spiderwort plant has grown and multiplied, putting out seedlings. As it has access to light, it continues to photosynthesize. The water builds up on the inside of the bottle and then rains back down on the plants in a miniature version of the water cycle.
As leaves die, they fall off and rot at the bottom producing the carbon dioxide and nutrients required for more plants to grow.
if you don’t think this is fucking rad then get out of my face
This is a kids show.
ADVENTURE TIME LAYING DOWN THE LAW
Adventure Time demonstrates a clearer understanding of morality than 98% of the world’s adult population
this is very important to me, i’ve been trying to tell myself this for years, and then a kid’s show lays it down so matter-of-factly and i feel like there’s some sort of closure, like for once i’m not just trying to convince myself to some delusion, but that it’s a truth that i can hold on to
This is the three-eyed calf being worshipped as a deity in India. The baby cow was born with the additional organ in the middle of his head, much like the Hindu god Shiva. Visitors have flocked the village of Kolathur in Tamil Nadu, southern India, to see the special calf. One of the key identifying features of Shiva is the third eye on his forehead, which can emit flames. When Shiva loses his temper, he opens his third eye to burn things to ashes.
