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.

Resilient Trees that Don't Give A Heck

Trees seem incapable of caring where they are or what they're doing. And we respect them for that. They could be on a cliff, in a pole, or be a hungry tree enveloping stuff and they wouldn't even give a rip. Not only do trees not care, sometimes people don't give a heck, and the results are wild.

A Quick Tumblr Thread On Dandelion Rights

Oh yes, Tumblr does it again. This time we've got a quick and educational thread on the various purposes that dandelions serve. Turns out dandelions got kind of screwed over with a reputation they never deserved in the first place. Lawn culture gave those dandelions a bad rap, and they never deserved it.

This person thought they were doing a great job of keeping their succulents alive until they had to be told their thumb wasn't so green after all. Apparently this is a pretty common occurrence? At least it still looks nice. Either way, there are loads of instances where people realize obvious stuff way too late.

Man, you don't see that everyday. Let's take the moment to appreciate this guy's focus on identifying those plants at the scene of the old plane crash, before actually getting on to figuring that out. Sounds like the passengers aboard the plane, all hopped out the back door, parachuted, and landed safely. The plane itself was apparently supporting CIA Cold War operations.

Tumblr Thread: Trees Are Strange And Kind Of Scary

This bizarre Tumblr thread explains some of the strange stuff trees do that we don't. It's vaguely unsettling, and it's also beautiful. That last part about the grafters putting fruiting branches on non-fruiting trees was a trip.

Trees Munching on Stuff

When it comes to man made stuff versus trees, it's easy for us to win the battle, but over time, vegetation wins the war. In only a few years trees overgrow the stuff we shove into them and cover them with, and it looks remarkably like they're straight up eating it. It's common to see hungry trees enveloping stuff.

Here are some trees that munched on the stuff around them, which turned out to be a whole lot of bikes and abandoned weapons.
