"Do I dare
Disturb the universe?
In a minute there is time
For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse."

ACTIVATING DEATH RAY
As ans allergy sufferer (as in comatose from benedryl from <ay to July) you have no idea how accurate this is.
Actually, that’s a female cone, with no allergenic components. The male cones are the ones made of death for those with allergies. They look like this!
You don’t usually notice them because they tend to be so small. They aren’t pollinated the way that flowering plants are, so they just rely on being high up and dropping their pollen into the wind. The female cones are therefore higher up on the tree, to minimize self-pollination! A gust of wind can carry pollen upwards, but usually not straight upwards.
This is a less efficient and immune system-buggering method of reproduction, but it does mean that conifers do not have to rely on a mediating organism to pollinate for them. They just do it themselves by covering every surface everywhere with their sexy bits and hoping some of that everywhere is its intended destination.

This is super cool and it’s from The Eighth Day
Our world as kids was full of things that grownups could care less about. Colby Vincent Edwards, William Franevsky and Jarrett Scherff have merged this whimsical occupation of childhood and mixed it with a non-technical future world, a dystopia created by unknown circumstances for their show “The 8th Day” at 5 and 6 Gallery. The collaborative group created a plethora of weapons and costumes, wrapped with twine, adorned with teeth, leathers, weathered and dented and tested in the manner in which they would be in everyday use.
