Sincerely have no idea why people get pet macaws and other parrots that can’t thrive in captivity unless you dedicate your entire existence to bird care when chickens come in miniature size and not only are cheap to feed, friendly, lay nutritious eggs, dispose of kitchen scraps, and poop out valuable plant fertilizer, but also if you forget the garbage and are face to face with a maggot swarm they will happily devour the evidence of your incompetence.
Good time to bring this back
me when i know what a pdf is
this is so funny
When ants die, a few days later they emit oleic acid, which tells the living ants to dispose of their corpse.
A myrmecologist named Ed Wilson discovered this and dropped the chemical on a living ant. It was immediately carried off, despite the fact that it was still moving, and clearly not dead.
“I’M GETTING BETTER”
Bring out your dead. Eh, close enough.
IM NOT YET DEAD SIR
You left out the part where the ant, believing HERSELF to be dead, stayed in self imposed exile in the ant graveyard until the acid wore off and she realized she was not supposed to be in the ant graveyard.
@finite-experience, this seems like the sort of thing you’d like to see
Ant 1: To the ant graveyard with you
Ant 2: But I’m not dead
Ant 1: You smell dead
Ant 2: Fair enough
Ant 1: “I thought you were dead.”
Ant 2, after acid wears off: “I got better.”
Ant 2, returning to the colony: i lived bitch
Hi I live in Richmond VA and I love my city so much, this morning 60 people woke up to find old television sets just sitting on their porches or lawns. Even better, those with security cameras recorded the person(s) responsible and they cannot be identified because they were wearing a jumpsuit and tv on their head
A new local cryptid I’m so stoked
The best part about this was learning that Robert Picardo is in fact a trained vocalist and sang this himself.
I’m reading this thing about how farmers in Japan considered thunderstorms to be good luck because they’d make more mushrooms grow so some Japanese scientists created this lil electrical machine that they wheeled through the forest administering shocks to the ground to simulate lightning strikes and the areas that they shocked yielded twice as many mushrooms as unshocked plots of land ⚡️🍄
the fact that we reached a point where we can simulate fake storms to make little buddies grow twice as much is like magic but slightly to the left and just down right delightful
