>Well, assuming it's a water softener
I don't know exactly what filter it is. But I live in Scandinavia, our tapwater is freshwater from aquifers, so our water is already quite soft and doesn't need to be bleached. But I'll keep an eye on my plants and buy some mineral water or demineralized water if I see them yellowing. Though we are out of the growing season, so I doubt I'll see any real change until next year.

Husky hater schizo accomplishments:
[X] Hard drive full of NAKED huskies, all female for some reason, not a single shaved male
[X] Obsession with physical appearance of dogs and how feminine/masculine they are
[X] Hard drive full of female huskies with swollen tits and reproductive organs

I have a ball python
And I wanted to get an enclosure but I dont have much space. Right now shes in a plastic tub but that was meant to be temporary for a few weeks.

What is a good enclosure under $250..
If it can be less than 13" tall I can get a length of 45" so that is my ideal situation.

If it isnt under 13", then like 36" is ideal.
Preferably not wider than 20ish inches.

Shes still a baby and shes probably a little smaller than my forearm.
So if I can get by for a few years until I move with a small enclosure thatd be better.

Right now shes in an enclosure thats 21" long, width 14, height 6
I want something a bit taller because one of my hides got crushed and cracked, and a bit longer at least.
I dont want to use another bucket, and I want to be able to use a heat lamp.

i just saw this pigeon in the middle of the footpath while biking home. it was not moving at all, not even a flinch when cars drove past. i went home and walked back with a little bowl of seeds and water. it wouldn't drink or eat, not even a sip when i brought the bowl to its beak. the traffic was getting too much so i wrapped it in a towel and brought it home. no visible injuries or blood. it walked a little and fluttered its wings. i used a flashlight and searched for tics, parting its feathers on its head and back, nothing. right now it is resting with its eyes closed. breathing looks strong and steady. it remained calm when i stroked it. any advice on what to do? i am hoping it is just shock or something. at the very least it is warm and safe from further harm now

>Industrialization is the Great Filter of Fermi's Paradox
so every intelligent species in the universe both saw its impending demise and somehow failed to avoid it despite knowing exactly how?

The thing that silences intelligent societies is something you haven't even begun to suspect because you have not yet advanced to the point of seeing it. By the time you do see it, it will be unavoidable.

singularity is easily avoided. Any technology is.

The size of the animal is irrelevant maybe even a detriment at very large sizes. What matters is the strength of its bones you only need to hit the same spot a few times and then the bones will collapse into the lungs and it will die while you simply stand back

Their extinctions were completely unrelated. Cavemen didn't have the potential to cause extinctions outside of islands. Those animals died out due to shifts in climate and vegetation.

Leaving aside the debate over the Bigfoot, mammoths are enormous animals that live in herds. Their presence in a area would be extremely easy to spot even indirectly through satellite data (which we already use to track herds in Africa), so this theory doesn't hold up unless you think the Russian government is involved in a conspiracy to hide all evidence of mammoths when they can't even properly hide their military facilities.
