Tumblr Thread: Kudzu Is A Monster Plant Waging War With Everything

This Tumblr thread has a bit of everything. It starts out as an existential post about building treehouses, transitions to plants waging wars on each other, and eventually evolves to a full on stress post about the monstrous force that is the Kudzu plant, basically consuming everything in its path. I love that the goat homies are just like, "screw it, more food for us." Additionally, the pictures of the Kudzu "destroying" various landscapes do possess a strange beauty of their own. 

Check out some more Tumblr gold with these cultures colliding over various grading scales.

Majestic Atrocities of the Australian Natural World

It's no secret that Australian wildlife runs the gamut of alien, to huge, to venomous, to dangerous, to huge again, to just plain freaky. It's a good reminder that most of us don't have to check our shoes for snakes, or run the risk of stepping on a spider that's so big it should pay rent. For some more scariness, here are ominous signs that speak the language of fear.
