In The Not So Distant Future, Glow-In-The-Dark Trees Could Replace Street Lights

Is that… is that even healthy?

There are sea organisms and fungi which glow in the dark and there’s fireflies and jellyfish which glow in the dark. It doesn’t do them any harm nor does it do the people around them any harm. I would say its pretty healthy, as well as it would mean more photosynthesis happening in cities which mean cleaner air.

I was just curious about how they were doing it and for some reason I didn’t think to click the link. But thanks! It makes more sense now. I was afraid it was some kind of chemical thing.

nah just genetic modification using existing bioluminescent genes. Genetics is really cool, and so is bioluminescence. I mean they’ve already made pigs glow using jellyfish genes and pigs are waaay more complicated than trees iirc. So they’re actually (i think) less likely to muck it up with trees.
In which case
GLOWY
FORESTS
GLOWY
TREES
GLOWY
EVERYTHING
(I like glowy things)

All hail the mighty glow tree

Science is doing so much cool shit right now, why is this the only place I hear about it?! We have 24 hour news networks and still no one else is talking about this awesome shit!

The cat’s like WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU BRING HOME

I will always share this LOL

I relate on a spiritual level with the absolute fury in that cat’s face in the last gif

AS A MATTER OF FACT! The cat is equally as happy as the dog. When cats put their eyes is if they are blinking very slowly, that’s their way of showing affection as if they are telling you “I love you”.   ;3
