So, the Donald Trump debacle just keeps oozing through mainstream America like... well, like the blob.
Does anyone remember the blob?
Yeah, weird stuff right. Well, how about this, “Paris Zoo showcases self-healing.... blob!”
No crap, it’s real. That’s the world we live in now where Donald Trump lies to us daily, like yesterday when he said this is the “greatest economy ever!” It’s not, no one is buying that shit. It’s the greatest economy ever for the top 1%, but for the rest of us it’s still paycheck-to-paycheck and more credit card debt trying to make ends meet.
But I digress. We are talking about how weird things have gotten in the world, so bad in fact that a 1950’s B movie is now reality. Here’s part of the story from UPI:
The strange organism is a slime mold, a type of protist, but the creature defies both classification and expectations. Though the blob is without a brain, it can solve problems. It has no eyes or mouth, but the blob can find and digest food. If it's cut in half, the blob quickly repairs itself. This particular slime mold, a bright yellow species named Physarum polycephalum, was first discovered in Texas in 1973, according to CNN. Several decades later, scientists published research showing the blob can learn to avoid toxic substances and recall their learned behavior as long as 12 months later. And when they fuse with other molds, the knowledge of their chemical adversaries gets shared.
Sound familiar? It’s DONALD TRUMP, RUN!
