CHINESE KNOTWEED ROOTS SHAPED LIKE HUMANS
Chinese farmer Zheng Dexun dug up a crop of fleeceflower, or Chinese knotweed, and found one shaped like a person, in Langzhong. The eerie-looking plant, measuring 62 centimetres tall, has clearly defined arms, legs, and head.

a man sitting on a bench next to a bull
"And suddenly, I looked at the bull. He had this innocence that all animals have in their eyes, and he looked at me with this pleading. It was like a cry for justice, deep down inside of me.

[Alvaro Munera] This photo shows the collapse of Torrero Alvaro Munera, as he realized in the middle of the his last fight... the injustice to the animal.
