Alive, Bad, and Bailey Jay: did you know? didyouknowblog.com The oldest living tree ever found was a pine named "Prometheus." It had been alive since before the Egyptian pyramids were built. Some guy cut it down in 1964 didyouknowblog.com Photo Credit: wordsmith.com spartanlocke: wellshitcaitlin: aclockworknick: did-you-kno: The oldest living tree ever found was a pine named “Prometheus.” It had been alive since before the Egyptian pyramids were built. Some guy cut it down in 1964. Source he was actually a forestry graduate student who was doing research on bristlecone pines (Pinus langaevea) and got his increment borer stuck in the tree. this tool costs almost $800, so he asked the forest service if he could cut down the tree to recover the tool. after cutting it down, it became apparent that the tree was actually the oldest living organism. ever. (around 8,000 years old). so, not just some asshole. the guy feels extremely guilty and has even broken down in tears during an interview about the accident OH MY GOD SO LET ME TELL YOU A STORY So after the grad student cut down the tree and discovered it was the oldest tree in the world he quit studying forestry and went to study salt flats (can’t cut down the oldest trees in the world on salt flats no siree none of that happening) and he was being interviewed about his research, but in the middle of the interview the reporter just stops and says “wait aren’t the guy that…” And he just takes off running. Literally. Turns around and runs across the salt flats away from the interview and I feel so bad for him but I can’t help but start crying I’m laughing so hard about it imagine a guy high tailing it across salt flats away from a dude with a recorder

The oldest living non-clonal tree is actually a Great Basin bristlecone pine in White Mountains, California, at 5066 years old. The oldest clonal tree, however, is a colony of Quaking Aspen in Utah called Pando. Covering 107 acres and having roughly 47,000 stems, Pando’s root system is estimated to be anywhere between 80,000 and 1,000,000 years old.

Journey, Memes, and Bodybuilding: 1 ed 5 @Regrann from @happilynaturallit26 - Ernestine Shepherd! 80 years old! She started her health journey in her 50's. It all started as a journey with her sister, they were both just starting to take control of their health but her sister never made it to see that day so Ernestine promised her sister that she would take better care of her health and so she did! AND she's entered and won many fitness competitions!! She won her first body building competition at 71!! Before her journey Ernestine said, "I was too prissy to exercise," she said. "I just didn't want to have my hair messed up. Didn't want my fingernails broken." That all changed when Shepherd decided her health trumped all and hit the gym. She started out slow. Those rippling muscles didn't appear overnight. Shepherd said she began her workout regimen alongside her sister before she passed, starting with a simple aerobics class. She increased her workout incrementally. Shepherd said she had never given much thought to bodybuilding until a trainer at her gym suggested she start lifting weights. She thinks big. Once she began to see the effects of lifting weights, Shepherd dedicated herself to becoming the oldest fitness competitor. Then, she took up running, which led to her completing eight marathons!!! Shepherd is no couch potato. Every day, she wakes up at 2:30 a.m. and runs 10 miles before 5 a.m. After that, it’s on to the gym, where she works as a personal trainer. She also reads her bible daily and devotes time to God each morning. Regrann
