Artist Peter Cook, grew this living garden chair using tree shaping methods, primarily training a living tree through constricting the direction of branch growth. The chair took about eight years to grow.

He grew a tree into a chair. He can wear whatever the fuck he wants.

The Doorway Effect: Why your brain won’t let you remember what you were doing before you came in here
I work in a lab, and the way our lab is set up, there are two adjacent rooms, connected by both an outer hallway and an inner doorway. I do most of my work on one side, but every time I walk over to the other side to grab a reagent or a box of tips, I completely forget what I was after. This leads to a lot of me standing with one hand on the freezer door and grumbling, “What the hell was I doing?” It got to where all I had to say was “Every damn time” and my labmate would laugh. Finally, when I explained to our new labmate why I was standing next to his bench with a glazed look in my eyes, he was able to shed some light. “Oh, yeah, that’s a well-documented phenomenon,” he said. “Doorways wipe your memory.”
Being the gung-ho new science blogger that I am, I decided to investigate. And it’s true! Well, doorways don’t literally wipe your memory. But they do encourage your brain to dump whatever it was working on before and get ready to do something new. In one study, participants played a video game in which they had to carry an object either across a room or into a new room. Then they were given a quiz. Participants who passed through a doorway had more trouble remembering what they were doing. It didn’t matter if the video game display was made smaller and less immersive, or if the participants performed the same task in an actual room—the results were similar. Returning to the room where they had begun the task didn’t help: even context didn’t serve to jog folks’ memories.
The researchers wrote that their results are consistent with what they call an “event model” of memory. They say the brain keeps some information ready to go at all times, but it can’t hold on to everything. So it takes advantage of what the researchers called an “event boundary,” like a doorway into a new room, to dump the old info and start over. Apparently my brain doesn’t care that my timer has seconds to go—if I have to go into the other room, I’m doing something new, and can’t remember that my previous task was antibody, idiot, you needed antibody.
Read more at Scientific American, or the original study.

I finally learned why I completely space when I cross to the other side of the lab, and that I’m apparently not alone.

this is actually kind of great and it’s nice to know there’s something behind that constant spacing out whenever i enter a different place

Of the three people (of different ages and backgrounds) who I’ve asked to read the first “act” of the thing I’m writing, one has been able to get past my awfully pretentious deep-purple prose to understand what it is that I’m actually trying to say, the other two haven’t.

Will I finally take…

omg is that me

am i the smart one

I will self-publish my thing and you’ll have to buy a million copies to make me happy. I’ll even sign some. 

You’ll be allowed to throw them away when I die, but NOT before, because every time I go to your house I’ll want to see them, and I’ll check the spines and edges to make sure you’re reading them

UNDERSTOOD

yes but am i the smart friend

also do i have to read every single copy or can i read just one

Yes, you are the only person in the world who is able to understand my pretentious, convoluted, wordy mess, yes. This might actually be a indicator of insanity though, so be careful.

And of course you’ll have to read every single copy! >:O An unread book is an unhappy book. If my books are unhappy, I’m unhappy.

why is it that being practical is never an option for me?? is it because I’m an infp and was raised by unicorns? Myers-Briggs, I blame your for absolutely everything.
