Time Lapse Of The Growth, Spread, And Beauty Of Various Fungi

April 25, 2019

This is a video from National Geographic's 'Hostile Planet' starring timelapses of various fungi doing their thing, including that crazy one that zombifies ants then kills them to spread their spores. Now as I'm sure anybody who recently spent two nights hiding in the woods behind their parents' house trying to convince them you've finally run away from home for good knows, Mother Nature is a trip. "Fungi came from space." Awwww that's cute, you don't think Mother Nature is intergalactic? They changed all the locks on the doors and the garage code, by the way.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Chris C, who informed me he's a fungi and the life of every party. I get it!

    LOL! I often wonder why he always says, "Destiny is Saul." Who the hell is Saul?

    Rot and decay are actually quite beautiful when viewed this way.
    Mother Nature is the Greatest Artist.
    I expected David Attenborough to pop out from behind a tree trunk and pontificate.

    This was a lot scarier than I thought it would be.

    A mushroom walks into a bar.

    Bartender says, "Hey, we don't serve your kind."

    Mushrooms says, "Why not? I'm a fun guy!"

    ...classic.

    Then the bartender murdered the Mushroom for making such a terrible pun.
