Fellow Swedes:



CARRIT: Tyler, don't be stupid. The world is 2011 years old.

My ex did the same. Cheated on me and then acted like I'd given her sister a facial. Women are retarded.

Oh god, I just laughed at the word erect...
dirtbag ballet by the bins down the alley
as i walk through the chalet of the shadow of death
everything that you've come to expect

You're just jealous because we're so...

erect.

it's over 9000 years old!? you gotta be kidding me!
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

We must charge Kensai with protecting the tree.

Or he can pass it onto someone else. IDK.

That's nonsense, the scientific consensus is that it's roughly 6000 years old.

There is also evidence that spruces are the species that can best give us insight about climate change.


So basically, we...as humans....need to man the fuck up.

I was expecting a huge tree, pic is slightly disappointing


+1. Still amazing, though. That tree has been around for the rise and fall of empires.
My signature lacks content. It is, however, blue.

I was expecting something like the Great Tree from World Of Warcraft.

You let me down TS

Pretty cool. I wonder how long it will last now, though. Can't out a tree without a few nuts trying to cut it down.

Because of this article I could see some vandals cutting it down to make a crappy statement.

I reckon they cut it in half and added 5550 more rings with a pen.

That'd make a hell of an cabinet.


That's amazing though, that little atrophied-looking spruce has made it nearly 10,000 years. Much props.

A 9,550 year old spruce?


I wonder what kind of tone wood it will produce….?

I thought it was 4 billion years old? Meh, what do I know, I'm still in high school anyway.

EDIT: Now that I think about it, if the Earth's magnetic field has a half-life of 1400 years, that probably means anything over 10,000 years is pushing it...

He's trolling. The earth is several billion years old.
