You know, I never really liked this place anyway. The air conditioning doesn’t work in the summer, the heater doesn’t work in the winter, the rent’s a crime. After the attack, I never… never pined over any of my old crap, never missed it - stupid view of that parking lot, broken toilet in the bathroom. You know, everyone I know is fighting to get back what they had. I’m fighting because I don’t know how to do anything else.
Most people consider mushrooms to be the small, ugly cousins of the plant kingdom, but theirs is surprisingly beautiful and wonderful world waiting to be explored. These beautiful mushrooms, captured by enthusiastic nature photographers, are a far cry from the ones you find in the woods or your local grocery store.
Most mushrooms, as we know them, are actually just the reproductive structure of the fungus they belong to – their fungal networks expand far further underground, and some fungi don’t even sprout the sort of mushrooms that we’re used to seeing. In fact, depending on your definition of “organism,” the largest living organism in the world is a fungus – there’s a honey mushroom colony in Oregon that occupies about 2,000 acres of land! ( Bored Panda ), I saw you were talking about fungus recently and thought you might enjoy this post!
Anonymous said: I've seen Saami spelled so many ways (and my spellcheck insists on Sami) - is there a single way that's preferred by the majority of Saami people, or is it something that depends on the language the word is being written in?
It all depends on the language really, but Saami or Sámi are the preferred spellings in English. Saami is more inclusive, as it doesn’t use a North Saami word to speak about all Saami, and it’s the preferred spelling of the international Saami Council.

I was drinking a beer in a park once, and an old lady stopped and said to me: “Young man, I can have fun without drinking!”
To which, I rebutted: “Oh, but I come from Finland, I can drink without having fun.”
