Natural Tid Bit

Darweze, also known as the door to hell, is a 70 meter wide hole in the middle of the Karakum desert in Turkmenistan. The hole was formed in 1971 when a team of soviet geologists had their drilling rig collapse when they hit a cavern filled with natural gas. In an attempt to avoid poisonous discharge, they decided to burn it off, thinking that the gas would be depleted in only a few days. Derweze is still burning today.

Friendship Is Magic - Save Derpy

Because I love this show.
True story: When I was going through my break-up, this show stopped some of the tears.

I saw the post- and pre- edit on Derpy. Keep the new voice, keep the old script.

Never thought I'd want to cry over a fan-made cartoon pony. 

Gumball Fish Tank

 The only thing I'd edit out of this tutorial is the need for a filter, and instead of using live fish, use fake fish.

You will need the following items to make this fish tank:

-gumball machine
-sheet of glass
-glass cutter
-breaking pliers
-sharpie marker
-glass grinder (or a file)
-safety goggles
-aquarium sealant
-decorative rocks
-aquarium plant

Asylum Garden

Moss Terrariums


Gather your materials

You will need:
- a glass (our kit uses a 10" vase that doubles as a candle holder, but any clean glass container will work)
- fresh moss (Moss Acres is a good source, if you are not using our kit)
- rocks
- soil
- dried moss
- terrarium figurines (check craft stores for miniature figurines)
- a poking stick (a long thin wooden dowel)
- a spray bottle with water

Set up a clean working area and unwrap all of your materials, so they're close at hand.

Start with a layer of rocks

Terrariums are made in layers.

First, take your rocks and put down your first layer. Put down just an inch of rocks, as after all the layers are complete you will want headspace for your little people!

Wet the dried moss

Next, take the dried moss and put it in a bowl of water and soak for a minute.

Place the dry moss
 Take a handful of the wet dry moss and squeeze out the excess water. Create a sort of pancake with this material and press it down over the rocks, covering your rocks as completely as possible.

Create a barrier
Use your poking stick to push the wet dried moss around so that it completely covers the rocks. This layer of dried moss forms a barrier so that your soil does not fall into your drainage area—the barrier prevents a funky terrarium!

Add the soil
Now put down a thin layer of soil. This is where you can get creative by adding a hill, a slope, or a valley by shaping your layer of soil. Use your poking stick to sculpt the soil.

Before adding the next layer of moss, give the soil a light misting with the spray bottle.

Add the live moss
Take your live moss and add it to the terrarium. Play around with it!

You can add different dimensions by tearing off bits and varying the types of moss used. Using your poking stick, push down the moss and move it around.

Add twigs, pebbles, or acorns to your terrarium for landscaping details.

How to take care of your terrarium
You're all done! You can enjoy your terrarium for years to come!

Moss terrariums are very easy to care for. You'll need to mist it with a spray bottle every 2 to 4 weeks and keep it out of direct sun. Moss terrariums dig filtered or indirect light, or even artificial light. Often, your terrarium will require less and less care as it ages.
