58% of endemic European trees are at risk of extinction. This should scare us all.
Science papers are always full of figures, but very rarely are they to scale, but in this astrophysics paper, which I’ve never heard of an astrophysics paper having a figure to scale, the authors included a 1:1 scale of a 5 Earth-mass back hole. So take 5 Earths worth of mass, compress it so it curbed spacetime infinitely, and this is how big that would be.
My hand for scale, don’t let your actual hand get that close to a real black hole though.
It's so nice when my plants try to cheer me up 💚

🧠 Small brain: White people don't have any culture
🧠 Normal brain: White people once had culture but have forgotten it after generations of underappreciation and devaluation
🧠 Sparkly brain: White people's actual culture has been devastated by capitalism and greed, due to the constant need to market and sell disposable commodities and "luxury" items which no one really wants or needs, leaving an empty husk of what that culture once was
🧠 Galaxy brain: Modern white culture is capialism
Can people please stop talking about Halloween while it's still fucking September?
I know we live in a capitalist hellscape which starts rubbing things in our faces months in advance so they can sell us cheap plasticcy crap that we'll very quickly forget even exists, completely destroying what was once a fun celebration with deep cultural undertones. But that doesn't mean you have to do it too.
I like plants more than people 🌱 Probably not an actual supervillain. Probably.
