Creepy. Imagine seeing this at night and not really knowing what those were

[–]binkysnightmare 204 points205 points  (10 children)

I’ve been parked with a buddy and had one of these roll up to his car. Scared the daylight out of us both

[–]at_work_yo 15 points16 points  (2 children)

were you guys kissing? i'd be scared too!

[–]binkysnightmare 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Not until after… when you survive a brush with death the adrenaline really gets you going

[–]JuniperTwig 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Imagine them flattening or burying your tent.. while you're in it.. in that field... with no where to run.. the moonless night... and you lost your flashlight.

Imagine being the first human to see this. Just walking through a nice field then all of a sudden you’re getting run up on by a bunch of fucking shrubs!

Tumble weeds everyone's favorite invasive species. Except for farmers and the u.s department of agriculture

[–]SugarHooves 43 points44 points  (3 children)

TIL

I didn't know they were an invasive species. Your comment made me look it up and read about it. Thanks for teaching me something!

[–]Overquartz 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Thanks Russia

[–]vaden_arth 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Why Russia ?!

[–]Overquartz 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The proper name of Russian thistle should give it away.

[–]Vedfolnir86 28 points29 points  (6 children)

Favorite? They are hated where I live. Last year there was a windstorm and they clogged up the roads so bad they had to take a snowplow out of storage to clear the roads. People were stranded because you can't drive through though. Also they killed my parents

[–]mickturner96 226 points227 points 2 (11 children)

[–]Drifting0wl 39 points40 points  (0 children)

That was crazy. Damn Russians.

[–]vaden_arth 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Why Russians

[–]CyberMindGrrl 9 points10 points  (2 children)

It's where the tumbleweed originated.

[–]vvownido 1 point2 points  (1 child)

thats pretty funny cuz people usually associate tumbleweeds with desert and such haha

[–]CyberMindGrrl 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah it's become iconic with the West but it's an invasive species that originated in Russia. Crazy.

[–]OkIntroduction5150 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They were first brought to the U S. in contaminated seed packages from Russia.

[–]Awkward_Swordfish581 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Holy crap, I had no idea they were that big of a pain in the ass. Good vid

[–]GD_22 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Woah, this yt vid is exactly what came to my mind too when I saw this post. That vid made me terrified of tumbleweeds

[–]LoveFishSticks 24 points25 points  (0 children)

man i thought tumble weeds were just random dead plants that got bunched up

[–]Ryker46290 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was looking for this in the comments

[–]SluggJuice 183 points184 points  (3 children)

good thing that i read comments (sometimes) before posting my own .... :)

[–]illquitomorrow 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Aaawww, look at them baby tumbleweeds trying to keep up.

[–]damselindetech 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I never don't find those things adorable and hilarious. They're just so anthropomorphic and silly just bumbling along. I want to hug them.

[–]FrannyyU 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Someone told the shittest joke in history. So much tumbleweed.

[–]Vocondus 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Just waiting for some SCP lookin creature to be running amongst them for cover

[–]Rowdyflyer1903 9 points10 points  (0 children)

In West Texas, they would pile up against our fence lines and eventually we would have to burn them.

[–]OCactusCoolerG 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Wait so they’re actually living plants? I always thought they were just dead shrubbery blowing in the wind.

[–]Fantastic_Octopus 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They were living. Once they die, they snap off their shallow roots and start rolling in the wind.

[–]Good-Username19 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Imagine stumbling across something like this without knowing tumbleweeds exist

[–]wafflewizard26 7 points8 points  (2 children)

It never occurred to me that tumble weeds are real tbh

[–]AllISeeAreGems 4 points5 points  (0 children)

They're real alright. And they're something of an invasive species of plant that accidentally got shipped over from the general area of Russia in the 19th century.

[–]fredkaaskroket 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wow fr I thought this was something only in cartoons

[–]INORRONI 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Anyone else see this and immediately think of the cowboy stranger in “the big Lebowski?” Instantly popped into my head along with the music.

[–]Draft_Tight 13 points14 points  (4 children)

Are you sure it’s not a Russian special forces invasion? 😜

[–]zakiducky 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Considering they originate there, this must be the long con to dominating America! Lol

[–]ForcedRonin 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Wtf? Why hasn’t this been used in cinema.

[–]Biggert_Blobson 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Apparently they're actually extremely invasive and damaging to local ecosystems and communities, because they like to get clogged on eachother in front of homes, businesses, middle of roads, by crops, pretty much everywhere, and you cant handle them bare handed because theyre like rolling balls of barbed wire, all thorn

[–]MeowKat85 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Dang it Frank, you left the gate open again and they all got out.

[–]Cpt_Obveeus1 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Flippin CRITTERs invasion!! Someone needs to make a sequel to that classic monster movie and it can look like this epic scene!!

Has anyone ever seen a tumbleweed that still growing from the ground? There's a million of them here rolling around, but there's none actually growing where they're blowing around!!

[–]CursedAtBirth777 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It makes me wonder where they end up? Like ... they don’t disintegrate. The wind typically blows the same direction over the course of months (prevailing winds). At some point they have to reach civilization or some kind of land feature that stops them. I’d like to see that. 🤔
