WTF, Google?

So, I need to attach something to a tree but I thought that a nail might do damage to the tree so I went to the internet to see if they had any ideas and I was like, “Can I glue something to-” and Google was like “LET ME JUST STOP YOU THERE.  YOU WANT TO STICK SOMETHING IN YOUR URETHRA, RIGHT?”  And I was all, “Jesus, Google.  WTF.”  Because first of all, ow.  And secondly, no.  And third, WHY ARE YOU AUTO-SUGGESTING THAT?

No, seriously:

screen-shot-2017-01-31-at-3-57-28-pm

This is not help, Google. This is a recipe for infection.

And then I was like, “You know what?  I’m just going to ignore this.”  And so I kept writing “Can I glue something to a tre-” and at this point you’d think it would autosuggest “tree”, right?  Because I’m doing all I can here.  But no.

screen-shot-2017-01-31-at-3-56-35-pm

me: “Can I glue something to a tre-” Google: “IS IT A T-REX?  YOU NEED TO GLUE SOMETHING TO A T-REX, RIGHT?  I’M HELPING!”

Are that many people sticking things up their urethra and gluing things to dinosaurs that google now thinks these are the most popular options?  All  I wanted to do was hang up a birdhouse like a goddam normal person and now I feel like I’ve stumbled onto an entire subculture that I never knew existed.

Thanks Google.  I feel very informed.  Too much so.  And also, I still don’t know how to attach something to a tree.

  14. Engages man mode

    “No More Nails” will pretty much glue anything TO anything. Honestly, I’d still nail up a birdbox though. Its still low risk for the tree and a lot more secure for any future feathered occupants of the box.

    So did I get away with that whole man mode thing? I never can tell if I effectively pull that off.

  39. I believe that one or two clean nails would not be deadly (as in, not rusty nasty looking) but definitely avoid wires as they can choke off the tree as it grows. Hanging from a sturdy branch is the preferable way to go, so long as they aren’t tightly wound around it, for the same reason. But definitely research birdhouse hooks/hanging. There should be some good options out there.

  71. Nails will not hurt the tree, but having something tight against the bark will. It traps moisture and allows fungus to invade the tree bark. The best way to hang the birdhouse is to use nails, but put small spacers between the back of the birdhouse and the bark of the tree so that air can flow between the two. That will make you, the tree, the birds and the T-Rex happy.

    You could also make some birdhouses out of Trex, which is a building material that looks like wood, but is made out of recycled plastic and resins. It never rots so it will be around as long as the T-Rex.

Not even afraid of chainsaws, which are reasonable things to be afraid of even if they HAVEN’T attacked you (so are lawnmowers).

    I do find it interesting that the tree just absorbed the nail. Like it was eating it VERY slowly. I don’t know if that would have hurt it in the long run if it hadn’t been trimmed, or if it would have been like a slow acting tree vitamin. It’s just cool that the tree could do that.

  111. Interestingly, the T-rex likely did not have a urethra it could insert things into, having instead a single orifice used for reproduction AND elimination of waste, like most egg-laying animals. But by phylogenetic bracketing, it’s likely T-rex did have a penis, unlike most modern birds, who rely on “frothing up” semen through the vigorous contraction of the cloaca in order to move it to the surface of the orifice, whence it can be rubbed onto the cloaca of the female animal by the usual humping motion. The more ancient lineages of birds, such as ratites (ostriches, etc.) and waterfowl, do have penises, although perhaps none is quite so infamous for the trait as the duck; drakes (most of whom are serial rapists) grow new, more complex penises every spring as part of an ongoing arms race against female ducks’ corkscrew-shaped vaginas.

  112. So I really want to get your 2017 calendar, but it keeps taking me to zazzle where it’s making me make me an account but I’m too lazy to do that, any other options I can do?
    Thanks,

  115. Last time I used Google I was trying to find out if it was safe to pour something down the drain. I typed in “how do I dispose” and it chimed in with “of a dead body,” and I’m like, “Google, don’t give me ideas,” and I kind of wanted to see what the answer was but didn’t want to end up on that watchlist.

  116. From personal experience you cannot, repeat CANNOT glue anything to trex. However Triceratops and Brachiosaurs are much more porous and glue will adhere to them much better. Happy gluing.

  117. Google actually meant Trex brand composite decking, I think, but let’s go with T.rex. Makes things so much more interesting/entertaining.

  118. Now I really want to know if I can glue things to Alex Trebek but Google is no help at all.
    I don’t know whether to be relieved or angry about that.

  119. Now instead of tiny fairy houses in trees you need to make a T-Rex house (tiny of course) and make sure to make it to scale so that everything is out of reach for his/her tiny arms. Then duct tape it to a tree because duct tape is EVERY person’s better glue.

  122. Trex is a proprietary name for a polymer based wood decking product. Not t-rex. So the Google search was perfectly understandable. Essentially it was someone trying to figure out how to glue something to a piece of polymer deck board. Not that weird.

    Also, because I’ve had a considerable amount of vodka – and it’s because it’s your fault I’ve discovered Rob Cantor (that earworm, Shia LaBeouf) I felt it was my duty to post this on your blog now.

  127. Jenny, read memoir LAB GIRL by Hope Jahren. Fascinating stuff about trees and plants, and she’s crazy like you, as is her lifelong lab assistant. LOVED this book, and she’s ok with pounding into trees, a bit anyway. Love you Jenny!

  129. My wife works in a urology clinic and specializes in a study where they image men’s urethra’s by injecting x-ray contrast into the urethra and then take an x-ray (I tell friends that she’s seen the rest and took home the best).

    Anyway…you’d be shocked to learn what men have inserted into their urethras. I’ll give you one example: a prison inmate inserted a pencil and then BROKE IT INSIDE.

    I never would have noticed it if I hadn’t seen your wrangle with the Google. So your blog is educational. You have educated me about decks. So thank you.
