One of the oldest organisms died in a fire

For us humans, 100 years is a long time. 100 years ago, the Ottoman Empire was still going strong, and we’d only just discovered vitamins. Some trees, however, can live for thousands of years, and one of the oldest single organisms on the entire planet died in a fire in Florida just a week ago.

I swear to god I had nothing to do with burning down this tree. I wasn’t even awake then.
