THE WOLF OF WALL STREET
Update: This piece was based of of Never Saw It Coming by Tigers Jaw along with some things in my personal life. I know it’s “I’ve” not “I”. It looked weird with “I’ve” so I decided to do that. I’m not an idiot.
”Yo, Mr White.”
Astrophotography from 1908 — 1919
These images were taken about 100 years ago. I can’t even describe how much respect I have for early astronomers.

I’ll never understand why some of our posts get shared so much more than others. I think this is among the three best pictures we’ve ever taken but it never went viral like some of the others…
This miniature ecosystem has been thriving in an almost completely isolated state for more than forty years. It has been watered just once in that time.
The original single spiderwort plant has grown and multiplied, putting out seedlings. As it has access to light, it continues to photosynthesize. The water builds up on the inside of the bottle and then rains back down on the plants in a miniature version of the water cycle.
As leaves die, they fall off and rot at the bottom producing the carbon dioxide and nutrients required for more plants to grow.
if you don’t think this is fucking rad then get out of my face
