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 7. Create pineapple standing army
Step 8. Well, you saw the gif.

…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.
A very sexy compost worm!

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.
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.
Really amazing work!
