#21 Milo I miss you
#23 Wouldn't it be nice to have a house like this, I think it's cute
Le Happy is a wonderful creperie in Portland, OR!
What in the hell kind of GD tattoo is that?
#1 #17 A double dose of Marilyn, thank you!
#14 has to be fake. Trees do not grow upward from the base of the trunk, they grow from the tips of the topmost branches. Trunks expand outward, not upward. Sorry to be a downer.
you've never seen a tree grow around a nail or a vine?
Found this on a site:
It's on Vashon Island, in Puget Sound, Washington State. It is real, not photoshopped. It is locally famous. Berkeley Breathed wove a story around this very bicycle in his delightful illustrated book "Red Ranger Came Calling". It's still a big mystery how the bike ended up there. It's been there for decades. Trees do not grow upward from the base of the trunk, they grow from the tips of the topmost branches. Trunks expand outward, not upward, so that if, for example, someone carved a name at eye level on the bark, that name would stay at eye level for the life of the tree. Someone had to have climbed up there on a ladder or something to place the bike there, decades ago, probably in the late 1940's or early 1950's (NOT 1914). I'm fairly sure it was placed there as a practical joke. I suspect a small handful of locals may know the secret–but if so, it's a carefully kept secret. There are many theories…
The caption is fake about kid going to war. The true story is revealed in this article from the December 30th, 2009 Vashon-Maury Island Beachcomer. The bike dates back to the 1950s and the kid who left the bike went on to be a King County Sheriff's deputy.
#14 was on snopes, nothing to do with a soldier but it apparently is a real photo.
no argument about it being enveloped by the tree. my whole confusion was why a 7 or 8 year old boy (judging from the size of the bike) would be going off to war
Where is #36? Is it real?
#14 sadly is false … http://www.snopes.com/photos/natural/bicycle.asp
why did you have to ruin the magic? lol
#38 That ruins Adel's song quite well…. Dammit, I had hopes!
#14 That's my home town and it IS real, the story is just fake. It's locally famous
#29 love me
#37 is too cute
That's a beautiful tattoo, very skilled work!
