8 vegetables that you can regrow again and again.

ScallionsYou can regrow scallions by leaving an inch attached to the roots and place them in a small glass with a little water in a well-lit room.

GarlicWhen garlic begins to sprout, you can put them in a glass with a little water and grow garlic sprouts. The sprouts have a mild flavor than garlic and can be added to salads, pasta and other dishes.

Bok ChoyBok choy can be regrown by placing the root end in water in a well-lit area. In 1-2 weeks , you can transplant it to a pot with soil and grow a full new head.

CarrotsPut carrot tops in a dish with a little water. Set the dish in a well-lit room or a window sill. You’ll have carrot tops to use in salads.

BasilPut clippings from basil with 3 to 4-inch stems in a glass of water and place it in direct sunlight. When the roots are about 2 inches long, plant them in pots to and in time it will grow a full basil plant.

CeleryCut off the base of the celery and place it in a saucer or shallow bowl of warm water in the sun. Leaves will begin to thicken and grow in the middle of the base, then transfer the celery to soil.

Romaine LettucePut romaine lettuce stumps in a 1/2 inch of water. Re-water to keep water level at 1/2 inch. After a few days, roots and new leaves will appear and you can transplant it into soil.

CilantroThe stems of cilantro will grown when placed in a glass of water. Once the roots are long enough, plant them in a pot in a well-lit room. You will have a full plant in a few months.

I came to this world to find a word

hurled around like it’s anything

the world came crushing down

it’s still here though

fascinating

Cubes fall through “Flatland”.On the left is a view of the cube in perspective; on the right is a view from directly above which represents what a two-dimensional person viewing the cube from within the plane would be able to perceive.

The top animationshows a square falling through flatland on its face. The slices are always squares. So our two-dimensional person would see “a square existing for a while”.

The second animationshows a square falling through flatland on one of its edges. The slice begins as an edge, then becomes a rectangle; the rectangle grows, becomes a square for a moment, and then gets wider than it is tall. At its widest, it is as wide as the diagonal of one of the square faces of the cube. The rectangle then shrinks back to an edge at the top of the cube.

The third animationis the coolest one! The cube passes through Flatland on one of its corners. In this case, the initial contact is a point, which then becomes a small equilateral triangle. This triangle grows until it touches three of the corners of the cube. At this point, the corners of the triangles begin to be cut off by the other three faces of the cube. For a short moment, the triangle turns into acertain regular polygon... As the cube progresses through the plane, the slice turns again into a cut-off triangle (but inverted with respect to the original one) and finally becomes an equilateral triangle once again as three more vertices pass through the plane. This triangle shrinks down to a point and disappears.

In the third animation, what regular polygon does the triangle turn into halfway through its fall?If you can’t figure out, maybe this artwork by Robert Fathauer will help. (Scroll to the bottom.)

If a 4D cube entered our dimension, what would we see?If you can’t figure this out, check out this awesome page. (Click the GIF links.)If you haven’t read Flatland, read it! Fascinating little book.
