In “Crystals Have Power,” Tree Trunks returns with a new evil personality as main antagonist and mastermind of the episode. It is revealed that when she ate the Crystal Gem Apple and exploded, she was actually sent to the Crystal Dimension. There, she became Quartzion the Crystal Queen and ruled the Crystal Guardians, who were in love with her. Although the apple also gave her ultimate power, it overwhelmed her and made her, as Finn put it, “bananas with crystal power.” She had her Crystal Guardians kidnap Finn after she fell madly in love with him, with the intention of transforming him into her “sexy crystal king,” to which Jake tried to stop them using non-violence. When Finn refused to be her king, she tried to kill him and Jake while still trying to convince Finn to marry her. After Jake realizes that he can hurt anybody that is evil from a vision with his father, he kicks the Crystal Gem Apple out of Tree Trunks and she returns to normal, with Finn also reverting to his normal form. She apologizes and admits her admiration for Finn, and goes back with Finn and Jake for apple pie through a portal generated by the Crystal Gem Apple.

Cat with Kittens
Egyptian
ca. 644-30 B.C.
The Egyptians associated the female cat’s fertility and motherly care with several divinities. The base of the statuette of Cat with Kittens is inscribed with a request that Bastet grant life, directly linking the cat pictured here with the goddess Bastet. The kittens here point to the benevolent aspect of this feline divinity, while her pointed ears emphasize the feline’s attentive vigilance and ability to protect its young.

Ancient Puppy Paw Prints Found on Roman Tiles

The paw prints and hoof prints of a few meddlesome animals have been preserved for posterity on ancient Roman tiles recently discovered by archeologists in England.

"They are beautiful finds, as they represent a snapshot, a single moment in history," said Nick Daffern, a senior project.

Excellent point! Artifacts like these typify the beauty found in archaeology, it is something so familiar yet so temporally distant from us. Furthermore, D’AAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWW. Roman Puppies.

He designed this special shoes, shared between him and his paralyzed daughter just to make her feel the sensation of walking.

Oh my goodness

This is probably so good for her body, too! Imagine her muscles getting moved in ways they don’t normally and she is upright and hopefully not having any pressure spots! This is lovely in so many ways!

This is a wonderful invention, but the man in the picture is one of the testers. He is not the inventor. The inventor was an Israeli woman named Debby Elnatan who developed this with an Irish company for her son.

At 19, I read a sentence that re-terraformed my head: “The level of matter in the universe has been constant since the Big Bang.”
In all the aeons we have lost nothing, we have gained nothing - not a speck, not a grain, not a breath. The universe is simply a sealed, twisting kaleidoscope that has reordered itself a trillion trillion trillion times over.
Each baby, then, is a unique collision - a cocktail, a remix - of all that has come before: made from molecules of Napoleon and stardust and comets and whale tooth; colloidal mercury and Cleopatra’s breath: and with the same darkness that is between the stars between, and inside, our own atoms.
When you know this, you suddenly see the crowded top deck of the bus, in the rain, as a miracle: this collection of people is by way of a starburst constellation. Families are bright, irregular-shaped nebulae. Finding a person you love is like galaxies colliding. We are all peculiar, unrepeatable, perambulating micro-universes - we have never been before and we will never be again. Oh God, the sheer exuberant, unlikely face of our existences. The honour of being alive. They will never be able to make you again. Don’t you dare waste a second of it thinking something better will happen when it ends. Don’t you dare.
