A moonbow is a rainbow caused by moonlight. It’s a bit fainter than an actual rainbow. Moonbows are rare because moonlight is not very bright. A bright full moon is needed & it must be raining opposite the moon. The sky must be dark and the moon must be less than 42º high. (Source) (You may also like: 360 degree rainbows)

Mr. Stubs is the first alligator with a prosthetic tail. The alligator, which lost his tail as a youth after a fight with another gator, was brought to the Phoenix Herpetological Society in 2005. Inspired by “Dolphin Tale” a team of experts dove into the task of discovering the type of tail a gator would need.

Mr.Stubs used his front legs to swim. It was a poor substitute because usually alligators use their long and powerful tail. Luckily, Mr.Stubs has been fitted with a prosthetic tail. He’s learning to grow into it and use it. (Source)

This is a truly amazing story of twin sisters separated at birth who discovered each other at age 25 through social media (see Facebook message above in which Anais reached out to Samantha for the first time). One lives in London and the other in L.A. and the two have shared a close bond since meeting. They recently took a trip together to their birthplace, Seoul, Korea, and now they’re hoping to make a film together about their story. Check out their kickstarter campaign here. Story via buzzfeed.

GUYS ONE IS FROM LONDON AND THE OTHER IS FROM CALIFORNIA I DON’T THINK YOU UNDERSTAND HOW PARENT TRAP THIS IS

Sweet, their movie is funded! Looking forward to it!

I was talking about why Chef Gordon Ramsay was so angry all the time, and explained that he originally wanted to be a professional soccer player but suffered a really bad knee injury and couldn’t play anymore, so he poured himself into cooking and culinary arts to help with his anger issues, but his abusive alcoholic father disapproved of his cooking and died before ever tasting any of it and I realized that Gordon Ramsay has the most anime backstory ever.

Kudzu (Japanese Arrowroot) is extremely invasive in the United States, Canada, and now Australia.

What is odd about this, however, is that kudzu is edible, an excellent livestock feed, medicinal, contains starch, fixes nitrogen into the soil, can be used to make fibre (ko-hemp), as well as ethanol.

While monocrops of maize are being grown for 4 out of 7 of these potential uses, an invasive plant that grows so fast you can see it with the naked eye is being sprayed with herbicides.

In light of this, I propose a novel solution to the elimination of useful invasive species: harvest them.
