Did you have to do any special fight training to prep for it?
- Yeah, yeah. They put me in training with this guy Master Hu in L.A., actually, a few weeks before I flew out to set. He’s a master of Wushu, which is an acrobatic martial art. We used these really long bamboo sticks, and he started teaching me the basics, the possibilities of moves in a fight, stuff like that, and it’s a lot of twisting of the body while propelling a spear around. And I’d go to practice on my own. I bought a curtain rod from Home Depot, and I had this empty apartment, because I just got this lease on a new apartment in Los Angeles. I’ve lived in New York for most of my adult life, but I was doing the L.A. thing more and more. So I had all this space to learn this one particular move of helicoptering the spear and getting it to make this whooshing noise. [Laughs] So I practiced that in the empty apartment and whacked myself in the face quite a bit. [Laughs]
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.
As a biologist I can clearly state that plants are fucking weird and you should probably be slightly afraid of them.
As someone who has worked at this this park I can clearly state that people will spend a lot of money to see the fucking weird plants.
i wonder what the weirdest fanfiction is

ALL HAIL THE ROMANCE
You have to kind of just accept Teen Wolf for what it is. Teen Wolf is made up of certain things, and you just have to decide whether or not you want to hang onto the show.
- a huge pile of random, irrelevant new characters
- pointless hook-ups
- slow-mo fighting scenes
- half-baked story lines
- unnecessary deaths
- Dylan’s amazing acting
- Derek’s naked body being showcased
- Derek being tortured
- a good cast
- and the greatest thing ever….Sterek
It’s kind of “take it or leave it”. Y’know? But the fandom’s vocals most likely get heard by the PR team and what not.

Well… I don’t have a “type,” do I??
