    Eucalyptus deglupta is native to the lowland rainforests of Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, and the Philippines. The tree grows rapidly to 75 meters in height (about 250 feet) which makes it one of the world’s giants. Sometimes it becomes so large that it grows 3-4 meter tall buttresses to help it support itself. Because of its rapid growth, large size, and medium-strength, slightly lustrous wood, these eucalyptus trees are grown commercially in huge monoculture plantations for pulping into paper.

    The most remarkable aspect of this huge useful tree is its remarkable bark color. The tree sheds long strips of bark throughout the year which exposes greenish yellow inner bark. The exposed stripes of green then change color to orange, purple, red, maroon, and dark green. Since the tree is constantly shedding narrow strips of bark its trunk becomes dazzling vertically striped rainbow of lovely colors. In wet tropical gardens around the world the Eucalyptus deglupta is grown as an ornamental highlight both because of its beautiful color and impressive size.

    Grotesque is also amazing, right ?




    Billy Owen says he started seeing things in a new light back in February, 2009.
    Losing your entire right eyeball will do that to you.
    Back then, Owen was a successful motorcycle mechanic with a loving wife and a six-month old son. But nagging sinus issues changed his life.
    "I had headaches and I couldn't breathe because my right nostril was totally plugged," he told The Huffington Post. "Doctors gave me decongestants thinking it was sinusitis, but my wife finally pushed me to see a specialist."
    On Feb. 13, 2009, the doctor gave him the news: He had sinonasal undifferentiated carcinoma (SNUC), a rare form of cancer affecting the nasal cavity that had only a 10 percent survival rate.
    "Most of the survivors have tumors removed at the early stage," Owen said, but, in his case, the cancer has spread so extensively that doctors had to remove half his face, including his right eyes, the muscles and nerves.
    "I have very little sense of smell left," he admitted. "If it's a real strong smell, I can pick it up."

    Now there's a giant hole where Owen's right eye used to be. When he removes a dental plate, he can stick his finger in that eye and have it come out his mouth.

    Pretty amazing. What is the white in his eye socket? Is it his scull?

    Looks like half an eggshell in there.

    for this to be picked out, one has to have a similar background as myself.
