"Go placidly amid the noise and haste"

by Hanna Cieślak
Pay for other people’s shopping if they can’t pay themselves. Leave notes of encouragement to the lady down the road who’s cafe is going bankrupt. Make funny faces at babies, smile at people who look sad and buy flowers for the old lady who lives on your street and was recently widowed.
Be the kind of person you’d fall in love with, and you’ll find yourself falling in love with life.

In The Not So Distant Future, Glow-In-The-Dark Trees Could Replace Street Lights

Is that… is that even healthy?

There are sea organisms and fungi which glow in the dark and there’s fireflies and jellyfish which glow in the dark. It doesn’t do them any harm nor does it do the people around them any harm. I would say its pretty healthy, as well as it would mean more photosynthesis happening in cities which mean cleaner air.

I was just curious about how they were doing it and for some reason I didn’t think to click the link. But thanks! It makes more sense now. I was afraid it was some kind of chemical thing.

nah just genetic modification using existing bioluminescent genes. Genetics is really cool, and so is bioluminescence. I mean they’ve already made pigs glow using jellyfish genes and pigs are waaay more complicated than trees iirc. So they’re actually (i think) less likely to muck it up with trees.

In which case







(I like glowy things)

All hail the mighty glow tree

Science is doing so much cool shit right now, why is this the only place I hear about it?! We have 24 hour news networks and still no one else is talking about this awesome shit!

Justin Vernon: Hazelton

I was recently introduced to Justin Vernon’s pre-Bon Iver solo release Hazeltons. It’s hard to track down. 

This is my favorite track.
