Treehouses Around the World

Who doesn't dream of living in a treehouse? Just think about it - you're tucked away from the outside world and you decide who gets to come in! Many characters from books and cartoons have made cozy homes in trees - here are just a few of the coolest treehouses around the world!

Famous Treehouses - Swiss Family Treehouse

On July 17, 1805, the Swiss Family Robinson became shipwrecked on a deserted island in the South Seas. With the remains of their ship, they built a home at the top of a very tall tree! Variations of this treehouse now sit in Adventureland in Disney World, Disneyland Paris and Tokyo Disneyland. The treehouse, which actually has running water, is decorated with whatever the Robinsons could salvage from their wrecked ship, and the rest they made from stuff they found on the island - talk about survivors!

Famous Treehouses - Tarzan's Treehouse

Tarzan's Treehouse in Disneyland is home to Tarzan and Jane. Keep your eyes alert as you enter Tarzan's digs cuz Sabor the leopard has just invaded it! If you get too close to him, he'll roar at you! If you're able to escape from his claws, you can make your way over to make jungle music by banging on pots and pans, or "percussion intruments" as Tarzan's best ape friend, Terk, likes to call 'em!

Famous Treehouses - TreeHouse at Pitchford Hall

Pitchford Hall is a large country house in Pitchford, England. The estate, which was built in the 1560s, is historical (Prince Rupert and his bodyguards hid there during the English Civil War) and haunted - a bunch of ghosts, including a former homeowner, are said to creep and crawl through the hallways! Pitchford Hall also has one of the oldest treehouses in the world. It sits in a large lime tree, and was built in the same style as the house - it even has an oak floor and gothic windows!

I believe that it would be beneficial if we kinda cut down on the baby making. The more people on earth, that means that more resources are being used. In a way gays are doing you a favor. Odds are, early on, gays were most likely killed for being different. So it wasn't like they had to chance to evolve .   If gays/lesbians we made to have babies then gays would not even exist. Just because a century old book says that gays cant be married doesn't mean people are going to listen to it. Modify you bible to the now times. Rules change, so should your's. Interesting... And how do you suggest we do that? Prevent people from having children? Slowly dispatch of the current population? I'm sorry. Life is the most precious  gift. I don't believe we have the right take that away from another. *cough cough* Back to the main topic at hand... I agree that "there are plenty of people, gay and straight, that love each other." You're not wrong in that assumption. However, there are kinds of love -though at the root core it comes with willing the good others. (We should "love one another as He has loved us.") But the attraction and desire to be with another as as man and wife can be one? That's called lust. As a Christian, I believe that such physicality should be reserved for marriage with the intention of bringing new life into the world.  Like any group seen as different, homosexuals have been persecuted (ex: WWII) -as they still are. But in some cultures such as the Roman? Homosexual relationships were actually encouraged. Specifically, male relationships -many, not all, between those of striking age differences. Now do you believe these were sought out for pleasure or out of love? Haha, actually? The Book's been around for well over a century now... Perhaps, maybe there just might be a sufficient reason as to why. Now, to change the rules? Sorry,  no can do. They aren't mine to alter,  though they're certainly mine to follow (;
