groot is probs assumed to be male but tbh i figure groot is a lil genderless being. who needs the gender binary when you’re a celestial tree creature. riddle me that.

"Are you a boy, or a girl?"
"I am Groot."

the part where groot grabs gamora instead of quill and rocket yells LEARN GENDERS MAN just supports this

#From a biological perspective #most trees/plants have both male and female parts #In some cases separate plants do have separate genders #but in other cases you can have plants that reproduce clonally that can be said to have no gender #(I mean if anything they’re considered female) #And considering Groot can regrow from a tiny stick then yeah #I’d say Groot is pretty much genderless #And can probably reproduce clonally as well #What happened to the rest of the sticks that came from the Groot-sphere-splosion? #WHAT IF THEY ALL GREW INTO NEW GROOTS? #GotG #MCU

From what I remember when Groot grew that leaf and ate it it looked like a leaf from an angiosperm which are flowering plants with male and female parts on the same flower. If Groot grew needles then it would suggest being a gymnosperm (pines conifers etc,) which have separate male and female organs (sometimes on the same plant sometimes not. So if Groot is an angiosperm then he/she would be asexual but would still require another tree person to reproduce properly (assuming he flowers like an angiosperm he could technically self pollinate but that’s essentially botanical incest and is generally unhealthy) along with a pollinator (space bees? I guess since he can move himself he could exchange pollen directly).

My great aunt ate walnuts every day to help improve her memory. She did it for so long she couldn’t remember why.

Have you ever been stung by a jellyfish? Want to know what was actually happening? First ever footage (that I’ve seen) of an actual jellyfish sting in microscopic slow motion. Check it out! 

This makes at least two times that Destin has captured something that no one has ever seen before via YouTube (here’s the other). We live in amazing times, eh?

Next time you look at a jelly, venomous or otherwise, I hope you carry a bit of awe with you. Remember, even the most basic creatures are products of hundreds of millions of years of intricate natural selection and evolution, and their simplicity should not take away from their wonder.

Is there a better way of showing a text message in a film? How about the internet? Even though we’re well into the digital age, film is still ineffective at depicting the world we live in. Maybe the solution lies not in content, but in form.

Here are three short films that take place on your desktop
Internet Story (2010): youtu.be/g-SL4ejpP94
Noah (2013): vimeo.com/81257262
Transformers: the Premake (2014): youtu.be/dD3K1eWXI54

Music:
Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross - In Motion (from The Social Network)
David Arnold & Michael Price - On the Move (from Sherlock)
Daft Punk - End of Line (from Tron: Legacy)
Al Hirt - Green Hornet Theme (from Kill Bill Vol. 1)

NEAT NEAT NEAT NEAT!! Watch this. I wrote my thesis on the relationship between the internet and physical space and my views on it have evolved dramatically since then, but investigating how it is portrayed in film is such a cool way of analyzing it. Still much work to be done…I can’t wait to watch the first movie that takes place entirely on the internet.
