This is the funniest thing to ever happen to Canada
Canada is trying to tell us something, guys.
Instead of killing an unwanted tree , this machine makes it possible to move it to a new place instead.
It looks like a Transformer
You’ve never seen one of these before?* It’s called a tree spade, and they’ve been around since at least the 1960s, and at least one study shows they’re way better for the health of the tree than when planting it with bare roots.
*I’d say “I tend to forget how rural I am at heart,” but I don’t think I started seeing these until I lived in Indianapolis, so…
These are awesome - you can get them in smaller sizes for saplings to attach to your lawn mower/home tractor. We should do this with the abundance of poplar saplings we have.
I’VE REBLOGGED THIS 3 TIMES TODAY
honduran white tent bats roosting under a heliconia leaf, which they sever down the length of its midrib to create a ‘tent’ that provides a waterproof shelter and protection from potential predators.
I’ve gotten a lot of asks wondering how I make the fangs shown above so here is my easy cheap trick:
• Buy plain fake nails from the store (ex: walgreens, cvs, beauty supply, it’s all cheap really and with a whole pack you can make as many as you want or reuse your old ones!)
• Use scissors to cut out fangs to fit your teeth. (Use a size up from your tooth so it will lie flat.)
• Purchase denture glue (yes that stuff that old folks use to keep their fake teeth in with)
• Apply a small amount to the back of the fake nail/tooth and hold it on to your tooth until it feels secure. (Your lips will help keep it in, don’t worry if it moves when you push it with your tongue.)
Voila! You’re the inhuman creature you have always wished to be. Just.. you know… don’t eat anything except liquids or your dreams will come crashing down.
