“Don’t let your white friends get you in trouble”
African American Proverb: Black Parent Edition
This miniature ecosystem has been thriving in an almost completely isolated state for more than forty years. It has been watered just once in that time.
The original single spiderwort plant has grown and multiplied, putting out seedlings. As it has access to light, it continues to photosynthesize. The water builds up on the inside of the bottle and then rains back down on the plants in a miniature version of the water cycle.
As leaves die, they fall off and rot at the bottom producing the carbon dioxide and nutrients required for more plants to grow.
if you don’t think this is fucking rad then get out of my face
JOHANNESBURG - South Africans have remembered the leader of the South African Communist Party (SACP) and chief of staff of Umkhonto we Sizwe Chris Hani who was assassinated 21 years ago, on this day.
Hani was assassinated in 1993 by Clive Derby-Lewis outside his home in Boksburg.
He was known as a fierce opponent of the apartheid government.
Arrested under the Suppression of Communism Act, Hani went into exile in Lesotho in 1963.
He received military training in the Soviet Union and served in campaigns in the Rhodesian Bush War in what is now Zimbabwe.
