a decellularized “ghost” heart
aaaaaaaay extracellular matrix
How cool is it that when you take all the cells out of an organ it still looks like an organ?
I remember when I was in high school and still very confused about how tissues worked, because all anyone taught me was that we’re made up of piles of cells hung on bones. But that’s not how it is! Cells build themselves little hammocks of polymer and densely branched glycoproteins; we’re like onions, layers of membrane over tough rubbery collagen, huge protein scaffolds cradling slippery organs.
Bodies are not made of cells — bodies are made by cells.
Ogres are like onions
Praise Shrek The Layered One.
The layers Ogrelap and form our heart, that which swells with his love.
Praise The Ogrelord
for some reason I love this picture so much

personally i feel like romeo and juliet could of handled the situation better
The fact that the one guy throws down his bag and goes to save the guy, but then he realizes he’s too late. And if you continue watching him, he like throws his hands up and then turns away. He probably feels disappointed that he couldn’t help, but he tried. I bet he didn’t even know the guy. And that really makes me not lose faith in everyone.
watched this atleast 5 times. too powerful not to reblog.
Everyone else kinda just runs back like the train is boutta explode or somethin.
It’s that fight or flight response
Each time I watch this I tear up. A complete stranger cared enough to almost jump in after him… and he will never know.

a lake in montana whose water is so clear it appears shallow, when really its over 100 feet deep!
this is actually kinda terrifying because what if someone doesn’t know how deep it is, so they go diving and try to swim to the bottom, but they always seem just out of reach, so they just keep swimming… and when they realize something’s wrong it’s too late
now what if there was a great white shark swimming around in there
I’m pretty sure lakes don’t have great white sharks
or do they
Imagine seeing a body at the bottom….
tumblr has the ability to turn everything beautiful into something terrifying
