There's some crazy things that happen in nature all the time. For instance, storm Cristobol is rainy water from the Gulf of Mexico on my family's property. The garden is being watered from the ocean over 20 miles away!

Speaking of water - I consider it pretty cool that Nature can get water to the top of the 100+ foot trees around my property - and larger ones in places on this Island. Completely organic pumps!

I was thinking just the other day about the crazy complexity of a common housefly that lives it’s entire life over a few days and ends up in the crazy complexity that is a spider web and is then eaten by the crazy complexity that is a spider!  How does that all happen, anyway.

Firelight is stored sunlight!

Whole video is interesting, but talking about fire starts at 7:18.
