Are you sick of growing the same flowers in your garden every year? Maybe your freezer is overflowing with severed limbs and you need to free up some space but you don’t want any of your precious cuttings to go to waste. Whatever your problem, if you want to turn your stash of severed limbs into plants that make your garden stand out from all the others, we will help you do so with blooming success. 

First thing first: Materials

  • 2 x sharp shears
  • Frozen severed limbs, but nothing too big; this article is about flowers, not trees.
  • 2-3 seeds per body part
  • A shovel if you’re growing in the ground, or a pot that’s large enough to accommodate your severed limbs
  • Well-draining soil

Next up: Preparation

Assuming you’ve already severed all the limbs you’ll need, the process of propagating body parts is super quick and easy.

The first thing you need to decide is the type of flower you want to combine with your severed limb. Roses are a great option because you can sow the seeds year round, but you can do this with pretty much any type of perennial.

When you select the limbs you want to use, keep in mind that it’s really helpful to have some bone tissue protruding from it.

NOTE: ONLY DO THIS IF THERE IS NO RAIN IN THE FORECAST FOR THE NEXT 48 HOURS!! Otherwise, you will have to deal with looooooads of decaying flesh! Who wants that!?

The Propagation Process

Step 1: Prepare Limbs

Take the severed limbs out of the freezer. If you’re using fingers or toes, I definitely recommend painting the nails in a shade that complements the color of the flower you’re planting it with. When I plant my toe roses, I like to give the toes a nice French-style pedicure because it looks really nice and clean.

Step 2: Prepare Soil

If you’re growing in the ground, use your shovel dig a hole for each of the body parts while you wait for them to thaw. The holes should be just deep enough to accommodate the limbs.

If you are using a planter, fill it with fast-draining soil while you wait for the limbs to thaw; use one part potting soil, one part perlite.

Step 3: Put the Seed in the Limb

When your limbs are about 20% thawed out, stick a seed right up the center of the bone, about 2 centimeters deep.

Step 4: Sow the Limb with Seed

Stuff it in the ground or in your pot, and sprinkle some soil on it.

Step 5: Wait & Water

Wait a day or two to water it.

THAT’S IT!

In a few weeks, you will have the most gorgeous and coveted garden on the block! You’re welcome!

This Woman Built A Second Home In Her Living Room 100% Out Of Amazon Boxes – The Results Are Amazing

Tired of Amazon boxes turning her minimalist lifestyle into an absolute cluster fuck, Sadie Jacobs turned them into a second home in her living room. The results prove that it’s totally possible to live the minimalist dream, even if your house is littered with packaging. You can take a mini-tour of her new pad in the slideshow at the bottom of the page. 

It often seems as though 21st Century minimalism is nothing more than an unattainable fantasy. You read all those blogs that make reduction seem so easy, but those people clearly have more time on their hands than you do. On the one hand, it’s great that companies like Amazon make it so easy to fit your excessive shopping needs into your busy schedule. On the other hand, when you do purchase all the necessary furniture, coffee table books, house plants, etcetera, you just end up with a junkyard of packaging in your living room.

Sadie Jacobs knew this pain all too well. “It got so bad that the recycling people just stopped coming by my house,” said Sadie, a recently-converted minimalist slash outside-the-box thinker. Luckily, Sadie came up with a more creative (and simple) idea than any she had seen on Pinterest. “I just decided, ‘hey, you know what? I’m just gonna make the most out of this mess and build a second minimalist home in my living room.'”

Her new home-within-a-home doesn’t have any plumbing or electricity, but that’s fine. “It’s really just so relieving to be able to escape from all of the complexities that exist outside of my Amazon boxes. It’s changed my life. I can’t recommend it enough!”

Wow! This Mother’s Poem To Her Son Will Make You Wet Yourself

To my son,

I first met you 25 years ago,

When you were just an innocent piece of flesh.

Still, I am the only person who will ever love you.

Since then, I have watched you grow

From an incompetent infant into an incapable young man.

Still, I am the only person who will ever be proud of you.

As a baby, your skin had a refreshing glow

Which has since turned to pus, lumps, and stubble.

Still, I am the only person who will ever want to look at you.

Love,

Your mother

STUDY: Boarding School Alumni Have The Highest Prison Satisfaction Rates

A study of female inmates suggests those who attended boarding school are better equipped for prison life than inmates who attended day school.

History Brush_WP

A study of female inmates suggests those who went to boarding school are better equipped for prison life than those who attended a day school.

A total of 390 female inmates who had attended either a boarding or day school until graduation were asked to rate their satisfaction regarding various aspects of prison life.

“Prison is just like my boarding school, but with more poor people.”

The results suggest that female inmates who went to boarding school feel at home in the confined and restricted atmosphere of prisons. The food, visiting hours, scheduled obligations, and isolation give former boarding students warm, fuzzy feelings of nostalgia.

However, boarding school graduates are not always popular with their fellow inmates. “They are really fucking annoying and ignorant, but it’s a good idea to hang around them if you need stuff from the commissary.”

Here is a visual representation of the data:

The results of this study clearly show that college preparatory boarding schools also function as prison preparatory schools. But there is certainly room for improvement; boarding schools can help their students achieve higher prison success and popularity scores by teaching more empathy and self-awareness.
