Sorry in advance for this long-ass bio.

I'm a 5th year senior at Jacksonville University studying music theory and cello performance. I'm a lazy asshole but sometimes I manage to get shit done.

I really dig nature and animals. I'm pretty sure I was a sloth in a past life. I'm a tree-hugging pothead hippie through-and-through. I'm a Wheel of Time nut. Actually, 'nut' is a terrble word for it. It doesn't even come close. Obsession... That's the word. The only people who know more about WOT than me are/were Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson, and Harriet McDougal Rigney.

megatherium (mg-thîr-m):
Plural "megatheriums" or "megatheria"
A large, extinct ground sloth of the genus Megatherium that lived from the Miocene through the Pleistocene Epochs, primarily in South America. It was as large as an elephant, had long curved claws and teeth only in the sides of its jaws, and ate plants. The megatherium was more closely related to the modern two-toed sloth than to the three-toed sloth.

At a time when 40% of the American public don’t believe Earth is more than 6,000 years old, Rachel Sussman’s magnificent photographs of the oldest living things in the world stand not only as a masterpiece of art but also a masterpiece of science communication.  (via explore-blog)

When beholding a majestic 13,000-year-old Eucalyptus tree, how can human arrogance dare deny its reality under the blindness of dogma?
