Yeah. I've seen people recommend putting him in a cup, then keep removing water from the cup and replacing it with water from the main tank until the cup is 99% tank water. Don't think it's possible to do without getting *any* QT water in your main tank anyhow.

omg ur so quirky xDDD

how the fuck do chimps best humans in hand to hand fights what the fuck, we are stronger and bigger than them, if they try to rip our faces off we can't just do the fucking same? it's so easy to picture ripping a chimps goddamn eyes out or curb stomp it's stupid fucking head, yet chimpanzees always seem to beat humans in fights, what the fuck
>>
>>4364859
humans are in a perpetual state of mild confusion and are best at reflecting on the past and looking into the future. chimps have superior short term memories , faster reaction times, and a sharp view of the present.

humans have less dense muscles optimized for endurance. chimps evolved to hoist themselves up and swing between trees with short bursts of extreme strength.

basically humans are kind of dumb and weak and had to evolve big brains to cope
>>
>>4364866
can I beat up a chimp though if i am really mad
>>
>>4364859
Our inferior muscle density and twitch response are because it was sacrificed in order to have our level of fine motor control and dexterity. Other apes will never be able to build the sort of things we have over our existence.

Yes a total truth. Who agrees?

Ya dingdong. The book. Read it. It's not wrong,but you're taking bits and pieces to justify yourself. Read Ecclesiastes at the very least.

This is a subjective judgement based entirely on your hatred of humanity.

A living thing is what it is. This is the supreme tautology, the inherent characteristic. Man is as natural as an ant and behold the ant does upend the earth and farm aphids
>>
>>4364906
No, it's basic arithmetic, brainlet. If you clear away diverse habitat with high biomass and what you "create" in its place is low biomass "habitat" with low diversity if basically nothing but pest species, you're the problem.

Retard.

Evil is not natural. Man is not a child of nature. You work for the other guy.
>>
>>4364910
>more life good
This is literally just your farmer monkey instinct acting up. You want to go into trees so you can eat all the fruit, bugs, and little critters in them so you have an irrational attraction to rich habitats. The amount and type of life that is "good" is purely a subjective judgement.

You are not god. You do not have the ability to value life. The value of life only exists in your little monkey brain. Nothing else. If you have a problem with anything, change your own lifestyle, because no one will be convinced by an insane monkey spouting predator calls over other monkeys.
>>
>>4364904
First live the life you claim to be superior.
Then you are better suited to advise others.
I'm not upset; only saddened: that with so many years of intellectual advancement that your heart moved not one inch.

I don't own any, but I work as a stable hand/groomer. I'm honestly kind of disappointed that this general doesn't talk about horses outside of making claims that they are either cute or sexy with images to go alongside them. I feel like most people here would not be so attracted to horses if they had to deal with their shit everyday literally and figuratively though.
