Now Lick It: Mesmerizing Time Lapse Of Mold Growing

This is a macro timelapse video created by Nick Lariontsev of mold growing in a petri dish. It really was pretty mesmerizing to watch. So the next time you hear anybody complain that something is about as much fun as watching grass grow, you can tell them you've spent five minutes watching mold grow, and you wouldn't trade it for the world.

Keep going for the video of the 'so that's what happens to my bread.'

Thanks to Dan H, who wants to see a time lapse of hair growing. Okay now you're just getting weird.
