People Describe Nicest Celebrities They Met

Nothing can quite melt a fan's heart like meeting a celebrity that they absolutely idolize, and then not having the experience dampened by the obnoxious weight of a nasty ego. Celebrities are bestowed with quite a bit of power when it comes to making someone's day, or even giving them a cherished memory to last a whole lifetime.

Faces Carved Into Trees Is A Mystifying Spectacle

While these are absolutely awesome to look at, we can't help but think that some of the trees can't have been too stoked about it. Also, just imagine crossing paths with one of these faces in the middle of a forest when the sun's going down and the eerie vibes of isolation in nature are already running amok. Just a little bit of yikes.

Maybe this stuff resonates with at least a few people out there, but on the whole, a toilet guitar isn't gonna be something that a lot of us want to buy. It's just a drop in the bucket of the many impressive creations of questionable taste.

If there's one inevitable and unsettling takeaway that you'll likely have from this Tumblr post about various kinds of trees, it's that trees are very weird and we should all be slightly frightened by them. This post reminds us of the other Tumblr thread about the monster plant that is the Kudzu. Maybe one day, humans will peace out from earth, take our troubles elsewhere, and leave the arboreal overlords to roam and rule over the earth. 

A Tumblr thread about creepy things trees do that humans don't | beautifuloutlier As biologist can clearly state plants are fucking weird and should probably be slightly afraid them. viforcontrol On note!
