Photographer Marianne Kjølner snapped this pair of photographs of a bizarre tree in Denmark. Of the photo she says: “This old pink house is situated at the old dunes, a few hundred meters from the west coast, a very windy place were there isn’t much that can grow. So the tree can only grow where it has shelter.”
denmark is wonderful
Artistic microscope slides produced in the Victorian era (1840~1900) by arranging hundreds of tiny diatoms into intricate patterns. This was often accomplished by using a single hair to move the diatoms in a special chamber that prevented disturbance to the slide. The fabrication of these amazing objects must have required incredible patience, attention to detail, and a steady hand.

Free Scarves In Ottawa A Helping Hand In Freezing Temperatures
The so-called polar vortex has Canada in its grip once again, with temperatures plummeting down to -35°C across Ontario on Tuesday, reports the National Post, with Ottawa experiencing an average of -23°C. Going outside without a scarf is not an option, which is why one kindhearted soul is trying to make sure every citizen is properly dressed.
A picture posted on Reddit on Monday evening showed a statue of army hero Andrew Mynarski, tied with a purple scarf and a tag that read, “I am not lost! If you’re stuck out in the cold, take this scarf to keep warm!”
According to the Ottawa Citizen, scarves were placed on each of the statues in The Valiants Memorial on Wellington Street.
i just saw an ad that was probably supposed to say accident lawyers but it said accidental lawyers and i can’t sotp laughing “just got my law degree aw man this wasn’t what i meant to do how am i gonna get out of this one”
my strangest legacy - in high school, for one reason or another (I can’t remember) my friends and I wrote “34 days until March 2nd” on the whiteboard in the drama classroom. It was completely arbitrary but we kept it it up, “30 days until March 2nd” ”23 days until March 2nd” etc. It spread around enough that the entire school is buzzing about what is going to happen on March 2nd. We figure we should think of something and decide to bring in cake. There were about 13 of us in total committed to bringing a cake. On March 2nd, during 3rd period lunch we all entered the cafeteria in a line (the parade of the cakes) and laid them out—a grand cake buffet for everyone in that lunch period. We did it the next year. And after we graduated it kept going.
This past March 2nd was the 9th year they’ve done it. It’s become a school sponsored event. There are t-shirts for this thing every year. March 2nd is cake day. I am a god.
um you guys
