Be Tree-Incarnated: Become a Tree In Your Next Life

Ants are extremely hardworking creatures. They’re insects with qualities I really admire, but because they’re often killed by people for wandering around at the dinner table (and too close to the stew), I wouldn’t want to be reincarnated as one in my next life. That is, if I believed in reincarnation, but I’m still iffy about it at this point.

Regardless, I would think that the awesomest way to come back on Earth would be as a tree. Preferably a huge one that people wouldn’t want to cut down ever. If you have the same notion, then you might want to check the Spiritree out.

It’s clear from his work that Makoto knows his bonsai and has honed his LEGO-building skills throughout the years.

This $4.2 Million Gold Tree is All Blinged Up for Christmas

Christmas Tree Bling

‘Tis the season to be jolly! It’s officially less than a month before Christmas, so hang up the mistletoe and pin your stockings by the fire if you haven’t already.

Now that we’ve gotten the obligatory holiday reminders out of the way, let’s play another round of ‘What Would You Do if You Had $4 Million?’ Would you buy a fancy sports car or move to a bigger apartment? Would you donate a chunk of it to charity or buy a jewel-encrusted watch for yourself? Or would you rather blow all that money on a revolving tree that was molded by ten craftsmen using 40 kilograms of pure gold?
