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.

Tales of Extreme Stinginess

We personally have done some ridiculously inconvenient things to save not enough money. When you realize that you're spending 3 hours and gas money to go to a store the next town over save three dollars on apple juice, it really makes you reevaluate how much your time is worth. That said, we love a deal and here are stories of people's sketchy cheap buys that ended up being their best purchases. On the other side there are people who try to bully and swindle people out of their dollars or complain over the contents of a dollar taco, and those entitled people need to pack up their rotten attitudes.

Most Unnerving Sights That Sailors Witnessed At Sea

Sailors see some haunting sights while out at sea. There's a whole lot of unexplored space out in those oceans, and mysterious creatures that look like they swam right out of a fever dream can present themselves at spontaneous times, to sailors. The thought of being out in the middle of nowhere on a big body of pitch black water, and suddenly seeing some unexplainable phenomenon that looks like a monster from the underworld itself, is enough to send chills down the spine. Nope. I'm good.

Woman Wonders if She's a Jerk For Booking Entire Row For Broken Leg

Flying can be a stressful experience already, and problem flyers can cause some drama. This woman asked the internet if she was wrong to stick to her guns and maintain her dominion over the seats she paid for. If she wasn't injured and hadn't paid for the seats things might be different, but as it stands it seems pretty clear.

Delusional Buyers And Sellers Fresh Out Of Sense

Ah, yes, the weird world of buying and selling secondhand items. Take for instance, that video game that looks like it was Glad wrapped. Not exactly what someone has in mind when they think they're buying a new and unopened video game. People are bound to slap prices, and sometimes insane ones, on just about anything they can find lying around the house. That broken pencil, or rock you just pulled out of your shoe, or beard trimmings? Maybe it's worth a couple hundred bucks if you're willing to shed rationality and all common sense.
