hey you know those photos of trees where it looks like they have a big round human ASS, that's a tree disease right, what's it called






if it’s what I’m thinking of, those are called Burls if you’re murrican or Burrs if you’re from pretty much literally anywhere else

It’s less of a disease in itself and more like a sign of a disease.  Usually fungal infections fuck up the tree growth and cause them

People actually steal them sometimes because some of them are super valuable.  They make really cool looking carved stuff and are really dense.

what the fuck. they just chop the ass right off a tree and sell it to the tree ass black market. that’s brutal

That’s… Yeah, that’s actually pretty accurate.

People have actually been arrested for it and redwood national park gets blocked off at night because people stealing and selling tree ass on the black market is such a big problem

requesting backup for a 376 in process, that’s right we’ve got a tree ass jacker here

those ass bandits will do anything to get wood


Otachi is finished! At nearly three feet in length, it’s no wonder why it took me so many hours to complete this huggable monster. I lost count of exactly how long it took, but I managed to marathon about five seasons of Scrubs. OTL

She was made from a combination of machine and hand-sewn fleece with interfaced-backed satin and felt for accents. Her eyes are plastic and glow in the dark! The pattern was made by the wonderfully talented lunaris1013. <3 Thank you for allowing me to make one! 

I’ll most likely be bringing her to Baltimore Comic Con and Anime Boston for this upcoming season. 83

okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.
