No mushroom thread? Mushroom thread!

Are you getting ready for mushroom picking season? Word on the street is morels are worth $35 a pound, and if not you can spend a day hiking for other mushrooms to get some beer money.
I found some white morels 1-2 years ago just growing at the airport. I dried them and still have leftovers.

Does she also now think you're an asshole?
I'm pretty sure that guy is dead to her now.
What he did is literally worse than the worst insult in the horse world.
You deserved it
They kick so well it feels like they have eyes on the back of their head
It's your own fault for bringing a camera, plastic bag, or anything that casts a shadow near a horse.

Literal serial killer signs

How old are you?

Apparently the urge increases tenfold in your early twenties
Never done anything bad intentionally, I guess going fishing counts.

I was distracted one time while driving and the guy next to me said I kinda hit a dog but he saw it walk it off so that's the one thing. I saved two abandoned kittens from frying in a car as a kid so I hope it balances out.
I beat a groundhog to death with a nine iron because it bit my dog.
You’re too quick to call him a potential serial killer. Clearly he’s got issues managing his emotions and needs a healthy outlet for his anger (and a shrink and possibly medication) but don’t jump to brand the guy a serial killer... he didn’t give enough specifics for you and to call him that (ie, does he enjoy it? Use implements? What did he do to these animals?) all those details are missing.

It sounds like what he has is fixable if he gets help.
yeah for every serial (human) killer there are probably dozens of cat killers.

spic still o b s e s s e d
How do I kill a duck quickly with my bare hands? I'm a newbie in an agricultural company but it seems my colleagues aren't that good at dispatching ducks that are terminally ill and need to have their corpses dissected or taken to a doctor. The corpse needs to be intact so I'm guessing I need to break the neck somehow. I'm also a /fit/izen so strength won't be an issue. I just don't want the animal to suffer as much as it does with strangulation. One was even still alive when they started cutting.

I’ve always been confused on what to group it as. Is it considered a crocodile, gharial, alligator, or is it something else. I’m talking about just a general term

Btw I’m not too knowledgeable on crocodilians so please be patient

Alligators are a member of the order corocodilia though

Look I'm not trying to start a flame war but thats borderline emotional abuse. Rocks are social and need interaction with their masters. Much like you can have 3 dogs who all have each other, they will still be sad if master doesn't give them any of his attention beyond fulfilling physical needs.

They need love and emotional enrichment. They can feel love no matter what these "experts" say.
Nice projection there, rocks actually dont have the brain capacity for emotions like love. They dont release oxytocin, the most a rock will ever do is tolerate your presence. If anything I think its you that needs the attention because no one in life gives you any. Havent you ever heard of geomorphism? You should be beyond needing love from nonhuman creatures.
Says someone who probably keeps his rocks shoved away on a rack

We always have pit bull, cat, koala, horse, dolphin, goose, and panda hate threads, but we NEVER have hornbill hate threads. Why is that?

If you serve koalas a plate of picked eucalyptus leaves they won't eat it because they are too retarded to realize they are eucalyptus leaves if they aren't attached to the actual tree.
Hornbills are sweet looking birds with a very unique bill. As of this moment, I like them a lot, and nothing in this thread has convinced me otherwise.
Stop trying to force this shit.
