My parents live in this town and the city legally can’t tear the tree down to build or anything because the tree has its own legal rights and they can’t do anything about it.

how does. how does this happen. how DID this happen

I love this story because this guy in the early 1800’s had so many great childhood memories of this tree and wanted to make sure it was protected no matter what. So he deeded the ownership of the tree to itself and everyone just went with it.

Then in 1942 this intense windstorm came and knocked the tree over. And people were bummed. But someone had saved an acorn from the original tree, so they planted that and now Son of the Tree That Owns Itself is over 50 feet tall.

And since this new tree is technically the offspring of the original tree it’s considered to have legally inherited the plot of land it’s inhabiting.

Two generations of trees owning land is amazing and if you don’t think this is the coolest thing get right out of my face.

no punctuation we read like romans

NOPUNCTUATIONORLOWERCASEORSPACESWEREADLIKEROMANS

INTER·PVNCTVATION·WE·INSCRIBE·LIKE·ROMANS

words doesn’t classical matter order in greek;

we, in a manner akin to that of a man who once was, in Rome, an orator of significant skill, who was then for his elegance of speech renowned and now for his elaborate structure of sentences cursed by generations of scholars of Latin, the language which he spoke and we now study, Cicero, write, rather than by any efficiency, functionality, or ease of legibility have our words, our honors, the breaths of our hearts, be besmirched.

The fact that this has yet to devolve into boustrophedon is a miracle… or a challenge. I’m looking at you @terpsikeraunos @macdicilla @labellamordens

I’m up to it

Not many jnſtances of Punctuation - but for many Daſhes – et words Capitaliz’d for emphavſis, but not logicaly - ſpeeling and word Endings varied Gratelie - and the long S - ſ - vſed in at the ſtart and Centre of wordes - & the short “s” vſed only at the end - as with the U and V, and the I and J - but v and j only at the ſtart of wordes (we diſtinguishe not between Vouels and Conſonants, only decoratiue Letteres). Ye letter “y” being in lookes cloſe to an Olde letter “þ” which is vſed as “th” - Y may be vſed in the place of TH - but only ſparingly - and ſtill Pronounc’d the ſame as TH. Long and rambling ſentences - ſeeminglie without end - a paragraph can conſiſt of One whole ſentence, and ſhort ſentences are rare – we ſcribe like hiſtorical Modern English – and other european Languages.

I’m binging humans are weird posts right now and I am probably going to get way too into this later tonight, but just the entire “hold my beer” culture interacting with Very Serious Alien Diplomats makes me want to scream.

Alien: By my calculations, the leap from the landing bay to the ship is too great for your physiology, Human Steve. I will call for assistance–

Human Steve: nah, nah, nah, C’Rahn, nah I know parkour.

Alien C’Rahn: Who is Parkou—aaaaAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Human Steve:

Alien C’Rahn: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH I KILLED THE–

Human Steve, rolling: LOL sick!

Alien C’Rahn, rushing to the edge and seeing Human Steve alive: HOW?!

Human Steve: *shrugs* Parkour.

See that lil green screen in the distance? That’s Star Trek Discovery filming! I walked past it at lunch and the sign out front said ‘Green Harvest Crew Entrance’ and I was like THATS A FILMING CODENAME I JUST KNOW IT. So then I looked it up and voila! Star Trek! That’s the Aga Khan museum that they’re at, it’s super futuristic looking so it’s very appropriate.

Linking pictures for reference of the muesuem.

This is going to probably be part of a good Discovery episode! :D

I am so annoyed that I moved to England and no longer live in Toronto, otherwise I’d be awkwardly hanging around filming locations

that IS a star trekky building. they’ll prolly CG in a huge techy tower

Wouldnt you agree @not-a-space-alien

Motherfucker i came to earth to get away from space. Space is terrifying.

Maybe you just weren’t cut out for it honey ;)

dont fucking patronize me 

U wanna go? My blasters aint set to stun buddy

I have done nothing to invite such hostilities from any sentient life form and the fact that you initiate contact only to react so brazenly and aggressively really makes me question whether you are a species I want to have any working relations with.  As a general rule I make it a habit to be cordial in any First Contact as a precaution against cultural misunderstands but you are really pushing the limits of my patience and sensitivity on this matter.  As an interstellar fugitive I would like to remind you that I have braved temperatures that fluctuate between millions of degrees above and below zero, objects hurdling at near light speed with enough momentum to instantly obliterate anything it collides with, planets that rain glass shards and have atmospheres thick enough to crush a car, the social isolation of abandoning everything and spending years piloting a craft alone that was meant for a crew of fifty, and I did this to flee things yet even more terrifying that might drive a sane being to brave the wide unknown of the black depths of the void of space as a preferable alternative.

And you think I would be afraid of you?

I must admit when I have been beaten. I humbly accept my loss and apologise for my hostile greeting. At first I felt trepidation at finding another star goer here on this planet, but you have proven to be worthy of my respect, and so I offer a truce, oh brave one, and the timid hope of a chance to share this little world.

lol its’ fine

languages-georg:

So I used to have a Russian friend who had a pretty thick accent and like a lot of Russians tended to eschew articles. She would say things like “Get in car.” And stuff.

Well one day this asshole who had been kind of tagging along with us asks her why she talks like that because it makes her sound dumb and I still remember her response word for word.

“Me? Dumb? Maybe in America you have to say get in THE car because you are so stupid that people might just get in random car, but in Russia we don’t need to say that. We just fucking know because we are not stupid.”

sophrosynic:

like, i get the desire that people have to want things like scars & stretchmarks & imperfections to be beautified and aestheticized in the same way that features which conform do. i get the need to want to see yourself romanticized in that way, to want to switch the language and the way people visualize imperfections.

but like, sometimes i really don’t understand the point of doing all that. because these things just exist at the end of the day, & i just want them to exist without adding or negating my value as a human being. i don’t even want 80000 aesthetic pictures of my acne scars or armpit hair, i just want them to exist and for people to treat me like a human being, and not like some kind of eldritch horror OR as some kind of epic symbol against beauty standards. i just wanna exist and for these things to just be treated as what they are–a consequence of living a life and nothing else. 

and i think it’s deeply misguided sometimes to act as if the only way to counter negative shit from some of the narrow beauty standards that exist is to run in the total opposite direction, rather than learning to come to terms with the fact that yeah, some things aren’t pretty, but that doesn’t mean they’re ugly, that just means that they are and they exist and don’t have an inherent value, and more importantly, don’t have any sort of bearing on your own worth as a person either.

Tama is boss

THE TRAINS HAVE CARTOON TAMAS ON THEM

Sad update everyone, Tama recently passed away… An estimated 3,000 people, including railway officials, attended Tama the cat’s funeral on Sunday, days after she died of heart failure aged 16. [x]

For those who haven’t read articles about it, the local shrine elevated her to a god. She’s now the Eternal Stationmaster and patron god of the station.

Beautiful.

Now I’m crying thanks

and a new cat was hired right?

yep! her name is Nitama (essentially ”second tama” or “tama II”) and she served under Tama as an apprentice before being appointed her deputy

she works very hard
