Equality is a goal, not a method. Feminism is about social change.

Equality is the goal, not the method.
Oh god I have never seen this put into words so conscisely.

Someone who is not me actually came up with that. I should have recorded who it was because now I forget.

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:

The upsidedown tree is not real. sowwy.

"The problem with the hippies was that there developed a hostility within the counterculture itself, between those who had, like, the equivalent of a trust fund verses those who had to live by their wits. It’s true, for instance, that the blacks were somewhat resentful of the hippies by the Summer of Love, 1967, because their perception was that these kids were drawing paisley swirls on the Sam Flax writing pads, burning incense, and talking acid, but those kids could get out of there any time they wanted to.
They could go back home. They could call their mom or dad and say, “Get me outta here.” Whereas someone who was raised in a project on Columbia Street and was hanging out on the edge of Tompkin Square Park can’t escape. Those kids don’t have anyplace to go. They can’t go back to Great Neck, They can’t go back to Connecticut. They can’t go back to boarding school in Baltimore. They’re trapped.
So there developed another kind, more of a lumpen hippie, who really came from and abused childhood - from parents that hated them, from parents that threw them out. Maybe they came from a religious family that would call them sluts or say “You had an abortion, get out of here” or “I found birth control pills in your purse, get out of here, go away.” And those kids fermented into a kind of hostile street person. Punk types."
