Tumblr Thread: Strange Horticultural Technique Is Terraria IRL

Look at those guys. This strange horticultural technique called Espalier aims to grow trees in a flat manner, which can end up increasing fruit yield, and maximizing or minimizing sunlight exposure. Tinker around with that sunlight exposure, and you're actually able to capitalize on more fruitful growing seasons. With all the benefits of Espalier having been noted, there's no getting around the fact that it does look like a real life take on the infamous video game, Terraria

Check out some more weird tree lore with this Tumblr thread about how trees are low key monsters.

Dude's Contract To Carry On Bloodline Is a Lot

In true Henry the 8th fashion, this guy has decided he wants a son to carry on his family name. Judging by some of the criteria here, it looks like the kind of thing an entitled person who makes laughable demands would try to pull off. It's unclear if writing up a big offer full of rules and ultimatums is a good way to carry on one's genes, but hey, most of us haven't tried. Either way, This dude is making some pretty wild promises about his future kid.

'Jurassic Park' But With Ferrets Instead Of Dinosaurs

We'd watch it. We also would just like a moment to thank photoshop for existing and for people who decide to create such random works of art. The internet wouldn't be the same without those people. 

For some reason, someone out there has decided to take the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World films and replace the dinosaurs within them with giant ferrets. We're not even mad about it, we'd absolutely watch this new franchise in a heartbeat! 

Giant ferrets just quadrupled our hearts for these adorable fuzzy cuties. Who wouldn't want a park full of giant, possibly ferocious, ferrets to hang with?

For more customer service stuff, here are weird things Walmart employees witnessed and some totally mindless things said by credit card customers.

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the freakiest things that night time workers ever witnessed while on the job. There's something about night time that's always managed to bring out the craziest parts about this reality that we all share. Definitely gotta keep a watchful eye out if it's a full moon as well.

Eye-Twisting Moments of Strange Perspective

The world isn't always straight forward. Sometimes you're looking at it from the side, or some other angle that obscures your view of someone's face. It's these illusions of eye-defying double-takery that can make us go "waaahhh" while trying to figure out if that's a dog or a boat. Foreground be damned, doubletake inducing photos of skewed perspective are here to stay.

Truck Drivers' Spookiest Experiences

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about truck drivers' creepiest experiences from their time out on the road. Turns out if you spend enough time out on the road, you're bound to encounter some especially spooky phenomenon. 

Truck drivers share some of their creepiest experiences from time out on the road | I had driven maybe 30 miles out into the farm land when hail started bouncing off my truck, being a MS native I knew in July hail meant tornado. I pull off to the side (I'm in the middle of no where no lights to be seen no cars behind or infront of me) and start looking for the storm/ tornado I believe is approaching. I rolled the passenger window down and shined a bright flashlight off into the night. Nothing

Famished Trees that Engulfed Stuff

We tend to overlook the power of trees. Most of the time they just stand there, not bothering anyone. But given enough time, a hungry tree can envelope tons of stuff. Trees will munch on mailboxes. old toys, signs, and just about anything they can get their limbs on.
