Okay, so look what I got at the op shop on Thursday! I mentioned these in yesterday's blog post, but I still can't believe my luck so I'm mentioning them again. Super good condition dark blue Dr Martens made in England. For $12. In my size. BEST HAUL EVER!
I'm also so happy with this blazer! I'm not a big blazer wearer, but this one suited this outfit really well! I LOVE the plaid orange colour. I actually think it would also work really well paired with lilac in an outfit that isn't so dark.wearing

You guys already know how much I love jellyfish (even when they're not really jellyfish), but the coolest hydrozoan that I think I've come across thus far are the species Turritopsis nutricula, who are only immortal.
These jellies are the real-life equivalent of Benjamin Button - basically, once they reach old age, they can revert back to being babies again. This reversal process is part of their natural life-cycle and the fact that they can continuously do it again and again makes them biologically immortal. Read more here, they're amazing creatures.
Another animal who I've always been fascinated with, who is also considered somewhat biologically immortal are the flatworm Planarian. This worm can be cut in half, in quarters - in fact, up to 1/279ths, and each bit will regrow into a whole new individual worm. Because of this regeneration, and because they also maintain telomere length (a process thought to be a causing factor of aging in other organisms), they can also effectively live forever.
This is why science is awesome.
