About a year ago, we posted a gif of hover whales. This, however, was our original creation—at the time too big for Tumblr but now able to be posted.
from Suggestions to the keepers of the U.S. life-saving stations, light-houses, and light-ships; and to other observers, relative to the best means of collecting and preserving specimens of whales and porpoises. By Frederick W. True.

Air Plants – How to grow and design with exotic plants that look and act like they belong on another planet

Air Plants: The Curious World of Tillandsias
by Zenaida Sengo (author) and Caitlin Atkinson (photographer)
Timber Press
2014, 224 pages, 7.8 x 9.5 x 0.6 inches (paperback)
$14 Buy a copy on Amazon

A few weeks ago while strolling through a farmer’s market in Los Angeles, I came across a vendor cart selling exotic plants that looked like they belonged on another planet. Masses of long green tentacles, feathery white shoots, and spheres of soft silver green spikes that looked like holiday sparklers drew me to the beautiful cart. The vendor told me she was selling air plants (tillandsias). Not very lucky with houseplants, I was hesitant to buy one, until the vendor explained how simple they were to take care of: give them some squirts from a spray bottle a few times a week. I bought two. Coincidentally, a few days later, Timber Press sent me a copy of Air Plants for a possible Wink review. Perfect timing!

Because air plants don’t live in soil or substrate and only need to be misted (or dunked a few times a week, as the book explains), caring for them can be as simple or artistic as you want. Strategically attach them to a screen, create modern art by perching them on wire cubes, craft a year-long wreath, use air plants as living hair ornaments, create a futuristic terrarium… A truly handy and fun read, with clear pretty photos and step-by-step how to projects, this book is not only a guide on choosing and caring for air plants, but also gives us amazingly creative ideas on air plant crafting and design. – Carla Sinclair

my partner tried to call me a sweetheart the other day but he misspelled it and I read it as “sweetbeard” and then I decided that this is what dwarf couples call each other

so, naturally, here are two dwarves on a date

Awesome Anamorphic Artwork isn’t restricted to walls, floors and sketchbooks. There’s a whole amazing subset that, instead of having the viewer stand in just the right spot, requires looking at flat image or sculpture reflected in a cylindrical mirror in order to see it properly.

Last month the folks at Bored Panda assembled a fascinating collection of 23 examples of this mind-bending art form. Here you see pieces by István Orosz, Jonty Hurwitz, Vera Bugatti and Awtar Singh Virdi respectively.

You have a dinner date for seven pm. What time do you arrive?

Seven. Am. Case the restaurant. Run background checks on the staff. Can the cook be trusted? If not I gotta kill him. Dispose of the body. Replace him with my own guy no later than 4:30.

This is clever manipulation over real footage. These rides do not exist in real life, but oh man, could you imagine if they did? Just seeing it makes me queasy. Thank you angrynerdyblogger for posting it on the sixpenceee tag and bringing it to my attention. (Video)

OMGTHANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU!!!!

I had no idea where to find this video! I saw it on someone else’s computer and really wanted to see it properly so thank you!

Wouldn’t be cool if they actually existed. Really, some of these rides would literally kill you because of the forces involved at such speeds. Your skull would collapse into your chest and ass.

I leave the States this Sunday hahaha what that is so close anyway I’m hoping to replace my phone’s SIM card in Leicester after I’ve sorted out my room and shit and then uh yeah UK friends I will have a UK phone effectively…? Hopefully. Fond hopes and dreams. Shit like that. And then plans can be made more on the fly but if you have my e-mail or skype or would like them then drop me a message that is also fine.
Flowers in hair are a sunflower because I have memories of wearing a sunflower shirt on my first day of kindergarten so it seemed appropriate, and then of course the York and Lancaster roses (or something like them because drawing any kind of rose is hard whether it be the hybrid tea roses seen throughout the Utena series or the cultivated wild roses that would become eventually combine to be the Tudor rose and thus a symbol of England, anyway roses are just plain weird okay let’s leave it at that)
I should start actually packing and stop thinking about what to pack hahahaaaaa

i want the kind of funding that scientists in comic books have.  where are you getting this money?  do you publish papers or do you just turn people into giant lizards and call it a day?  do you have to get that shit peer reviewed?  who is paying for your research?  can you give me their email address 

i have googled ‘evil science grants’ and the results were not satisfying
