Deep in the rainforests of the Indian state of Meghalaya, bridges are not built, they’re grown. For more than 500 years locals have guided roots and vines from the native Ficus Elastica (rubber tree) across rivers, using hollowed out trees to create root guidance systems. When the roots and vines reach the opposite bank they are allowed to take root. Some of the bridges are over 100 feet long and can support the weight of 50 people.

Esther Jones, known by her stage name, “Baby Esther,” was a singer and entertainer of the late 1920s. She performed regularly at The Cotton Club in Harlem. Helen Kane saw her act in 1928 and appropriated Jones’ ‘baby’ singing style for a recording of “I Wanna Be Loved By You.” Jones’ style went on to become the inspiration for the voice of Betty Boop.(What I Looked up)

Today in Black people invented everything you hold near and dear…

Bolivia is to become the first country in the world to give nature comprehensive legal rights in an effort to halt climate change and the exploitation of the natural world, and to improve quality of life for the Bolivian people.
Developed by grassroots social groups and agreed by politicians, the Law of Mother Earth recognises the rights of all living things, giving the natural world equal status to human beings.
Once fully approved, the legislation will provide the Earth with rights to: life and regeneration; biodiversity and freedom from genetic modification; pure water; clean air; naturally balanced systems; restoration from the effects of human activity; and freedom from contamination.
The legislation is based on broader principles of living in harmony with the Earth and prioritising the “collective good.” At its heart is an understanding that the Earth is sacred, which arises from the indigenous Andean worldview of ‘Pachamama’ (meaning Mother Earth) as a living being. An initial act outlining the rights – which was passed by Bolivia’s national congress in December 2010 and paves the way for the full legislation – defines Mother Earth as a dynamic and “indivisible community of all living systems and living organisms, interrelated, interdependent and complementary, which share a common destiny.”

White privilege is never having to spell your last name.

you… you’ve never met a polish person have you

american privilege is not realizing the world does not in fact consist of only america

I’m not sure that’s…

As far as I know, my family has been living in England for a very long time and no one can spell or pronounce my name no matter how many times I tell them so it’s not even like a ‘foreign’ thing because I’m physically very recognisably English. I just don’t think OP really thought it through.
Idk what point I’m trying to make but /

My mum texted me to ask if I’m missing her and it’s put me in a really awkward situation because idk what to say. Like I obviously have to lie but I want it to sound genuine so???

All my clothes came. The things I didn’t need I like, the things I really needed I’m not so keen on. The jacket looks really cheap..but it was really cheap and I can’t afford a real leather one so I guess I’m kind of stuck with it. I’m just really annoyed because I have one of the same brand that I’m replacing so I thought they would be a similar quality but they’re really not so I don’t get that :/
