friend i have some bad news for you.
Circus Tree: Six individual sycamore trees were shaped, bent, and braided to form this.
how the hell do you bend and braid a tree
Actually pretty easy. Trees don’t reject tissue from other trees in the same family. You bend the tree to another tree when it is a sapling, scrape off the bark on both trees where they touch, add some damp sphagnum moss around them to keep everything slightly moist and bind them together.
Then wait a few years- The trees will have grown together.
You can use a similar technique to graft a lemon branch or a lime branch or even both- onto an orange tree and have one tree that has all three fruits.
As a biologist I can clearly state that plants are fucking weird and you should probably be slightly afraid of them.
On that note! At the university (UBC) located in town, the Agriculture students were told by their teacher that a tree flipped upside down would die. So they took an excavator and flipped the tree upside down. And it’s still growing. But the branches are now the roots, and the roots are now these super gnarly looking branches. Be afraid.
But Vi, how can you mention that and NOT post a picture? D:
Better get back to salting your meats and keeping a pantry because fridges are a luxury now.
I think they’re mixing up POOR and THIRD WORLD. Those are two VERY different things.
No don’t you know that if you literally own a single thing you are no longer poor and therefore should receive no benefits of any kind. Gods. You own that shirt you are wearing? No foodstamps for you! You own that book you are reading? No more medicaid! You own a television? You must be rich - pay some taxes already!
Poor people are more likely to rent than own. Most apartments, yes, even apartments that accept Section 8, have a landlord-provided refrigerator. By most standard leases in my state, any feature in good working order when the lease starts must be repaired or replaced by the landlord if, through no fault of the tenant, the feature is no longer functional. By such a lease, if a refrigerator/washer/dryer/any other on-premises appliance was shitty and barely working when you moved in, the landlord has to make sure it’s repaired to at least that state if it stops working entirely.
Sure, poor people are INCREDIBLY LIKELY to have a refrigerator in their home. THAT DOES NOT ACTUALLY MEAN THEY ARE LIKELY TO OWN THAT REFRIGERATOR, YOU TWIT
So of COURSE poor people have refrigerators. That’s just fucking LOGICAL. And if they weren’t part of the lease, poor people would have to find a way to get a refrigerator, no matter how leaky and close to breaking down it was, because IF YOUR FOOD STAMPS ARE THE ONLY MONEY YOU CAN BUDGET TOWARDS FOOD, YOU HAVE TO MAKE FOOD LAST. You can barely afford to replace the food you’ve eaten, you can’t afford to have food ROT and be wasted.
And even aside from that, if it’s really so reprehensible for poor people to have access to a way to preserve their food, EVERYONE AT FOX NEWS SHOULD JUST SET THEMSELVES ON FIRE NOW PLEASE
Dotjpg made all of the points I would have made, but I still feel compelled to add: Just what unholy combination of wealthy, ignorant, and callous do you have to be to be scandalized that “poor people” (which by the way, is an incredibly vague term and it’s not defined here) have a means to store food and reheat it? >:P
Let us not forget that when poor people DON’T have a refrigerator…or a home…these nutboobs are no more compassionate or understanding.
