In central Bahrain stands a large mesquite tree known as the Tree of Life. It’s the only tree that survives in that part of the desert, and it’s been there for 400 years. Currently, scientists have no idea where it’s finding water and nutrients.
this one got me

Fun fact. “The Rock” has single handedly contributed more to make a wish foundation than anyone else on the face of this earth.
The Rock is a living legend.
Koko the gorilla is a resident at the Gorilla Foundation in Woodside, CA and communicates understands spoken english and uses over 1,000 signs to share her feelings and thoughts on daily life. After the first call about Robin’s passing, Koko came to Dr. Patterson with an inquiring look on her face. Dr. Patterson explained that ‘we have lost a dear friend, Robin Williams. Koko was quiet and looked very thoughtful, Koko signed the words for “woman” and “crying.” Koko became very somber, with her head bowed and her lip quivering; she was crying over the loss of her friend.
"Robin made Koko smile — something she hadn’t done for over six months, ever since her childhood gorilla companion, Michael, passed away. Not only did Robin cheer up Koko, the effect was mutual, and Robin seemed transformed — from a high-energy entertainer, into a mellow, sensitive, empathetic guy, who also happened to be really funny." -Dr. Patterson
Something a bit different, which I have dubbed a “gymfographic” (who doesn’t love puns). See it in full HQ here without all of the stupid breaks that Tumblr made me do.
It’s 4:30 am but I really feel like sharing the fact that I made a gym website and I want it to be the best gym website on the interwebz with brilliant content AND a message board full of really cool people because there are either message boards OR content sites, no one ever combines it, aside from IG kind of but that board is so separate from that site and that site doesn’t ever have the best content aside from interviews SO LET’S GET TOGETHER and make this the best site IN THE WORLD. I have LOTS of good people involved, will definitely look for MORE good people, the content is gonna be really cool once we get into it (the pieces up now are kind of filler to get started but in the future think Broadway World meets Buzzfeed meets my tumblr), and I think if we get all of the smart, crazy, passionate fans who really love the sport, we can definitely make The Gymternet the cool kids table.
most badass scene ever
