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

GLOWY

FORESTS

GLOWY

TREES

GLOWY

EVERYTHING

(I like glowy things)

Guardians

In the art museums of Russia, women sit in the galleries and guard the collections. When you look at the paintings and sculptures, the presence of the women becomes an inherent part of viewing the artwork itself. I found the guards as intriguing to observe as the pieces they watch over. In conversation they told me how much they like being among Russia’s great art. A woman in Moscow’s State Tretyakov Gallery Museum said she often returns there on her day off to sit in front of a painting that reminds her of her childhood home. Another guard travels three hours each day to work, since at home she would just sit on her porch and complain about her illnesses, “as old women do.” She would rather be at the museum enjoying the people watching, surrounded by the history of her country.

Seeing Doubles: Lee Pace (The Fall), Tom Hiddleston (Thor) and Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes) Edition

Since I was having a Jane Austen movie marathon and after watching Northanger Abbey starring Felicity Jones and the dashing and darcy-esque, JJ FEILD, I couldn’t help but notice that JJ Feild reminded me of some of my favorite actors. His clean shaven face and boyish charms quickly reminded me of Jude Law during his A.I. (Artificial Intelligence movie) days. So the stalker that I was, I quickly pounced on another JJ Feild movie which is Austenland 2013. This time he sported wind swept hair that was just waiting to be tousled, that I immediately thought of Tom Hiddleston with his infamous ruffled hair and charming laughter and smile. But there was still something missing in the recipe of JJ Feild. 

Two cups of Jude Law's boyish charm

Add in 3/4 cup of Tom Hiddleston's Rakish charm and sexy laugh

And the missing secret ingredient, a pinch of Lee Pace's eyebrows and mysterious aura and you've got yourself a perfect JJ Feild, that is both boyishly dashing and mysteriously sexy. <3
