At the time of our visit, there were four chiefs in arms contending for supremacy in the government: if one succeeded in becoming for a time very powerful, the others coalesced
against him; but no sooner were they victorious, than they were again hostile to each other.
The height of the trees and the thickness of the boles exceeded anything which I in my town-bred life could have imagined, shooting upwards in magnificent columns until, at an enormous distance above our heads, we could dimly discern the spot where they threw out their side-branches into Gothic upward curves which coalesced

The sweat stood out on their skin in myriads of tiny drops that ran together, forming blotches of moisture, which, in turn, coalesced

from the debris created when a large object banged into Pluto early in the history of the solar system, Ward and Canup argue in an upcoming Science.
The characteristic of this pattern of coalescence is that a satellite bubble is newly created as a residual of coalesced
Untold ages later they coalesced
into our own solar system forming our Sun, Earth, oceans, mountains, griptape with holes in it and, eventually, Bam Margera's Right Guard contract.
