An 8-step Plan for Pineapple World Domination

Step 1. In the supermarket, look in the top of each pineapple: is there fungus or rot? If so, keep looking. Many pineapples you buy in the store are already exhibiting the early stages of heart rot. Find your perfect, healthy pineapple.

Step 2. Eat delicious pineapple

Step 3. Cut away all of the sugary flesh, until you are just left with the leaves. It should look like this:

Step 4. Peel back the first few leaves on the bottom. Often, you will notice small, flattened, brownish roots between the layers of leaves; they look like this:

Step 5. Moisten some potting soil, stick the roots in the ground, and pray.

Step 6. A healthy, rooted pineapple plant will send off “ratoons" (offsets), which will multiply your bromeliad bounty.

Step 7. Create pineapple standing army

Step 8. Well, you saw the gif.

Lumbricus badensis

…is a species of giant Lumbricid earthworm, which is endemic to the upper-elevation spruce forests of Germany’s Black Forest. Reaching lengths of around 60 cm (24.6) in length L. badensis is one of the largest European species of earthworm. Like other smaller earthworms Lumbricus badensis tunnels underground (typically 2.5 m (8 ft) deep) and feeds on organic matter, aerating the soil and contributing to the formation of humus as it moves. 

Classification

Animalia-Annelida-Clitellata-Oligochaeta-Haplotaxida-Lumbricidae-Lumbricus-L. badensis

GIFS from my last video - How To Find Water Bears

Take a look at #4. Embrace the fail. I think it’s the best part of the video.

We could have faked it. We could have pretended that we found Tardigrades on our first try. But where’s the fun in that?

Making mistakes is a natural part of science.

I’m glad that Ben, Valeria, and I didn’t find Water Bears during the shoot. So that face I’m making in #6 is a genuine face of celebration.

When do you science and other life stuff, don’t worry about mistakes. Learn from those mistakes and keep moving forward.

There is a lot to be said for “embrace the fail.”

the original plan with this was to do some cel shading practice but since that’s going to take another century until I finish, and I want to update my demo reel like NOW, this second, this INSTANT..this is it.

I’m an artist with a molecular biology degree from the University of Washington, and I’ve been working on making science infographics for several months now. 

This week I made an animated identification chart of North American butterflies. You can check out the full sized GIF here or pick up a poster for your room here :)

This rules! 

Really amazing work!
