We managed to adopt her from a Tibetan monetary (in the United States) who weren't taking care of her at all. She was super shy for the first two months and would just dart around the house avoiding people. But after some good old fashioned time, love, and care she's a weird but very happy cat. She's still fairly young, maybe 2 or 3 years old.

Yeah, I went there on field trips a few times in elementary and middle school. I remember it being pretty cool. My favorite part was the petting tank with the stingrays and starfish.

I live about 15 minutes away from it so maybe I should go back soon.

My boss is going there on Sunday, I guess you can dive with the whale sharks? I don't know, he was busy bragging about so many things that I kind of tuned him out once he started talking about the aquarium

How intelligent are they? Do they resent and hate us? Will we ever make peace?

Gun nuts have some arguments, but I don't understand why japs fell the need to keep doing this besides tradition.

They travel to the other side of the world to hunt whales in Antartica and nothing can stop them, I hate to be preachy but it's hard to justify hunting as a sport but as an industry it's unacceptable.

What's the history of whale hunting in Japan? I have no sense it was ever an industry with scale on par with the whale oil business run by Europeans.

They're smart enough to understand that people are neither a threat nor food. In captivity, they go crazy because so many of their instincts are fucked up (echolocation, swimming for long distances, forming social groups with their families instead of strangers, etc). I'm glad Sea World is done with whales. While it's sad we won't ever be able to see them up close in a few years, they're way too large and intelligent to be kept in captivity.

My grandma hates gypsies and in Ireland an ethnic slur for gypsies is to call them tinkers.
Some Tinkers were camping near by my grandmas house and she would go on and on about the Tinkers.
I was five at the time and thought Tinker would be a nice name for a cat.
Shes 17 now and lost a back leg, I think she lives up to the name.

Chagas is spread by Kissing Bugs which bite for a bloodmeal. Assassin bugs only bite if provoked. Keep him in a small terrarium and feed him your enemy bugs. And name him Leon.

Welcome to the plant general, for all discussion of plants and horticulture.

How are your plants doing this summer?

Old thread:
>>2136487

The plant of the day is pic related, called "Yareta." The plant looks like a moss growing on a rock, however it is actually a relative of parsley and grows stand-alone like that out of the ground. To reduce heat loss, the plant grows extremely dense and has the same hardness of bark, allowing you to stand on them. They only grow about 1.5cm per year so a large plant like pic related is ~2,000 years old.

I "inherited" a N. x Miranda (?) quite a while ago
There seem to be three plants in one pot.

can I just repot them all to seperate pots without damaging it too much?

I have all my other Nepenthes in seperate pots, thus, I never had to "devide" any of them, so please excuse the strange question.

Hi the /an/.

I need help confirming the identity of a liberty cap mushroom, picked near skagen, Denmark.

Also, don't fucking eat wild foraged mushrooms; Even mycologists with decades of experience misidentify wild mushrooms. Just go drive to a trusted headshop in holland and buy some shrooms that won't put you in the hospital
