    Who put Bella in the witch elm? In 1943 the remains of a murdered woman were found, stuffed into a hollow tree. The graffiti “who put Bella in the witch elm?” has been appearing in the area ever since. The question has never been answered, though theories of black magic and espionage have been put forward.

    Slime mold was grown on an agar gel plate shaped like America and food sources were placed where America’s large cities are. 

    The result? A possible look at how to best build public transportation. 

    I just really like the idea of slime mold on a map of the US. It’s beautiful.


    holy shit

    I have a raging science ladyboner right now.

    I just had an internal mindgasm. HOW COOL IS SCIENCE THO, AMIRIGHT?

    J.R.R Tolkien, looking at flowers.

    Apparently people hated to go for walks with him because he would stop and look at every tree for like 20 minutes.
