The 3200 year old tree so massive that it had never been captured in a single image until recently.
This giant sequoia stands 247 feet tall and measures 45,000 cubic feet in volume. The trunk alone measures 27 feet and the branches hold 2 billion needles (more than any tree on the planet).
This picture took a team of photographers from Nat Geo, 32 days and stitching together 126 different photos to make.
i love redwoods because they are at the very limit of what the dynamics of capillary action allows to exist i’m glad an evolutionary niche exists for “THE BIGGEST FUCKIN TREE THAT CAN BE”
I will never forget that day at Nat Geo.
“There are only patterns, patterns on top of patterns, patterns that affect other patterns. Patterns hidden by patterns. Patterns within patterns. If you watch close, history does nothing but repeat itself. What we call chaos is just patterns we haven’t recognized. What we call random is just patterns we can’t decipher. what we can’t understand we call nonsense. What we can’t read we call gibberish. There is no free will. There are no variables.”

I was tripping a couple weeks ago and kept imagining the patterns I saw in your beard and I started crying and smiling.
ohhhh i my b’s beard and all its glory
Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.
If you aren’t fit enough to physically restrain a person who is larger than you without a simple weapon, you’re not doing it right.
Use your fucking words. Discuss, compromise, and recognize that everyone is having a human experience.
If words don’t work, you should be fit enough to physically restrain a person larger than you. After all, you’re supposed to be protecting and serving your community. Why not serve them by setting an example for a healthy lifestyle.
