one of my favorite things about robin williams is that when he was filming “one hour photo” there’s a scene where he offers a boy an action figure from the store he works in, and robin williams asked the director if he could pick the toy and he fucking brought in his own evangelion figure and somehow the director said yes, even though there’s no way a store like that at that time would have a toy like that

Growing between the towns of Grana and Casorzo in Italy’s Piemonte region, the Bialbero de Casorzo is an old mulberry tree with a cherry tree growing on top. While a tree growing on another tree is not so uncommon, a fully-grown, perfectly robust tree growing atop another is a super-rare sight.

If a plant grows non-parasitically on another plant, getting its nutrients from the air, rain, and debris around it rather than from its host, it’s known as an epiphyte. In the case of the Bialbero de Casorzo, the cherry tree on top is the epiphyte, and a strangely healthy one at that - while most epiphytes are stunted and have just a brief lifespan, this cherry tree is as big as any regular cherry tree, and shows no signs of weakness or disease.

Exactly how it got up there is a mystery, but according to OddityCentral, locals have suggested that a bird dropped a seed into the mulberry tree, and as the young cherry tree grew, its roots passed through its host’s hollow trunk to find the soft earth below. The branches of this ‘double-tree’ now stretch up to 5 metres across.

While in the 1960s it was rumoured that a similar double tree was growing in Croatia’s Plitvice Lakes National Park - this time a peach and a spruce tree - its presence remains unconfirmed, so right now our Italian double can enjoy the status of being the most impressive two-tiered tree in the world.

HOW IS THIS THE FIRST TIME I’VE SEEN THIS IT’S ALMOST AT 10 MILLION WTF

You belong to a singular race. Every man is a suffering-machine and a happiness-machine combined. The two functions work together harmoniously, with a fine and delicate precision, on the give-and-take principle. For every happiness turned out in the one department the other stands ready to modify it with a sorrow or a pain—maybe a dozen. In most cases, the man’s life is about equally divided between happiness and unhappiness. When this is not the case the unhappiness predominates—always; never the other. Sometimes a man’s make and disposition are such that his misery-machine is able to do nearly all the business. Such a man goes through life almost ignorant of what happiness is. Everything he touches, everything he does, brings a misfortune upon him. You have seen such people? To that kind of a person life is not an advantage, is it? It is only a disaster. Sometimes for an hour’s happiness a man’s machinery makes him pay years of misery. Satan
