Wikipedia Address: South Finley Street, Athens, GA 30605, United States Reviews 4.3 6 Google reviews otteroftheworld My parents live in this town and the city legally can't tear the tree down to build or anything because the tree has its own legal rights and they can't do anything about it. vnicent how does. how does this happen. how DID this happen giraffepoliceforce love this story because this guy in the early 1800's had so many great childhood memories of this tree and wanted to make sure it was protected no matter what. So he deeded the ownership of the tree to itself and everyone just went with it. Then in 1942 this intense windstorm came and knocked the tree over. And people were bummed. But someone had saved an acorn from the original tree, so they planted that and now Son of the Tree That Owns Itself is over 50 feet tall. And since this new tree is technically the offspring of the original tree it's considered to have legally inherited the plot of land it's inhabiting Two generations of trees owning land is amazing and if you don't think this is the coolest thing get right out of my face.

Paging Neil Gaiman: glumshoe glumshoe glumshoe glumshoe Lyft driver: "Your name, is Slavic? Me too. Bulgarian. I drive fast for you, brother." Now he's waxing philosophical about the Ottoman Empire imperialism, and human nature. "Humans? We are the most dangerous animal. Other animals, they kill when they need to We kill when we think we need to. It is not the same" He just monologued about climate change and the military industrial complex, and the difficulty of having a Balkan identity when every Balkan country changes hands "every twenty years". "Our history is getting swallowed by the biggest fish, and that fish getting swallowed by the next biggest fish, and so on." He had so many more gems. We compared family names, realized that his daughter shares my grandfather's name (the feminine version), and then he started talking about The Old Country. The city where he grew up had a population of 300, and the population of his whole country could fit inside Chicago. He came here twenty years ago seeking a better life, but "everything in America is too big, the cars, the problems, the inequality" He pointed to his phone and called it "stupid little computer" that's meant to control his life, not to improve it, and how the world is getting steadily worse and the little people can't do anything about it. He told me to continue my studies so that I don't grow up to work in the service industry and can instead try to stop the concentration of power into the hands of corrupt people. Then he shrugged and said, "But who knows? Can anyone do it? I don't know if it's possible." I tipped him 25% You just met an Old God Paging Neil Gaiman
