A 22-year-old Dutch woman who suffered from a rare disease which thickens her skull bone had her complete cranium replaced by a 3D printed implant. The operation took place at UMC Utrecht in the Netherlands. The disease had caused her skull to become thicker, placing too much pressure on the brain. Her cranium had become 5cm thick, while the thickness of a normal skull is around 1.5cm.

"WE ARE DEAD STARS…looking back up at the sky. Everything you are, literally the iron in your blood, comes from the instant before a star dies. In the case of the most massive stars, the core of the star collapses and sets off the most violent, brilliant reaction we know of called a supernova reaction. Everything outside the element iron, everything heavier, all the gold, all the silver, all the lead, all the uranium - that’s formed in that supernova explosion. A single star will glow as brightly as an entire galaxy, as hundreds of billions of stars, in that moment of death and and that’s what you are. That is literally what your body is, that instant of death.

Two-Minute Personality Test
By Jonathan Safran Foer

What’s the kindest thing you almost did? Is your fear of insomnia stronger than your fear of what awoke you? Are bonsai cruel? Do you love what you love, or just the feeling? Your earliest memories: do you look…

Circus Tree: Six individual sycamore trees were shaped, bent, and braided to form this.

how the hell do you bend and braid a tree

Actually pretty easy. Trees don’t reject tissue from other trees in the same family. You bend the tree to another tree when it is a sapling, scrape off the bark on both trees where they touch, add some damp sphagnum moss around them to keep everything slightly moist and bind them together. Then wait a few years- The trees will have grown together. You can use a similar technique to graft a lemon branch or a lime branch or even both- onto an orange tree and have one tree that has all three fruits.Frankentrees.

As a biologist I can clearly state that plants are fucking weird and you should probably be slightly afraid of them.

On that note! At the university (UBC) located in town, the Agriculture students were told by their teacher that a tree flipped upside down would die. So they took an excavator and flipped the tree upside down. And it’s still growing. But the branches are now the roots, and the roots are now these super gnarly looking branches. Be afraid.

But Vi, how can you mention that and NOT post a picture? D:
