IM LOSING MY SHIT

Mushrooms have an extraordinary ability to control the weather, scientists have learned.
By altering the moisture of the air around them, they whip up winds that blow away their spores and help them disperse.
Plants use a variety of methods to spread seeds, including gravity, forceful ejection, wind, water and animals. Mushrooms have long been thought of as passive seed spreaders, releasing their spores and then relying on air currents to carry them.
But new research has shown that mushrooms are able to disperse their spores over a wide area even when there is not a breath of wind - by creating their own weather.
Scientists in the US used high-speed filming techniques and mathematical modelling to show how oyster and Shitake mushrooms release water vapour that cools the air around them, creating convection currents. This in turn generates miniature winds that lift their spores into the air.

Little round up of my day:
- Had a driving lesson and according to my instructor, it’s the best i have driven.
- Had my hair-cut, HECK YEAH.
- Did some work…work that never ends.
- Watched little miss sunshine with mum and dad. Of course the music made me want to cry. SUCH A GREAT FILM, and they both really liked it too which is good.
So all in all a nice day.
And maybe one day when all this work is done i will actually draw something. So many comic ideas, so little time.
