Oregon’s Monster Mushroom is World’s Biggest Living Thing
The largest living organism ever found has been discovered in an ancient American forest.
The Armillaria ostoyae, popularly known as the honey mushroom, started from a single spore too small to see without a microscope. It has been spreading its black shoestring filaments, called rhizomorphs, through the forest for an estimated 2,400 years, killing trees as it grows. It now covers 2,200 acres (880 hectares) of the Malheur National Forest, in eastern Oregon.
The outline of the giant fungus stretches 3.5 miles (5.6 kilometres) across, and it extends an average of three feet (one metre) into the ground. It covers an area as big as 1,665 football fields.
it’s like that episode of the x files..
The feature-length film about DIY pioneer Jeff Rosenstock, who put his songs online for free and redefined punk for the internet age.
I feel it is my obligation to spread this everywhere i can on the internet to get this funded. If you love Bomb The Music Industry!, Jeff Rosenstock, or just Ska in general you should really support this. It’s a documentary about Jeff and the rest of BTMI! please check it out, help support, and reblog/post/whatever the fuck people do now. Thanks!
