I fucked myself in the ass with a steamed octopus tentacle and it felt fucking amazing. I kind of want to have sex with an octopus now, but I don't want to rape it. For the record: I'd be the bottom the entire time, no penis penetration. What do I do?

That is, and has never been, the case at all, nor has any reasonable person ever tried to make that argument.

>>4174132
Most have limited time and resources. I'm convinced that if you were actually able to live in the woods for a year then you could manage to snag some photo's, given the right kit and patience.

The problem with trail cams and such is that they seem to exhibit something that makes them detectable by either sight, sound, or smell. Combine that with the generally shitty quality of the pics they take, and I'm not convinced they're the go-to for collecting photographic evidence. I think you need a high qual 35 mm digital with a telephoto lense and night vision to land a decent shot of the things.

Maybe one day we'll get our photo, though, so who knows.

That was the excuse posted in the last threads though. People were saying that they’re smart and know how to remain hidden and now some are saying they were chucking trees at people and seen in Georgia?

Thread for discussing potential grassroots methods of supporting local wildlife populations, be they hypothetical or ones you've actually been doing.

I live in the interior U.S. and have for the past several years harvested spadefoot toad tadpoles from drying playa ponds, raising them to froglet age in a house pond, and then moving them to stock tank overflow ponds. I reckon there haven't been a large number of survivors to breeding age, but I figure it helps them stick around during the drought.

My American Akita of 14.5 years passed away last night at midnight. It only feels like she's in another room and not gone. I miss her so much already, bros.
Picture is not her, but, looks exactly like her.

Just had to get that off my chest. I haven't cried much since I guess it doesn't feel real. Blah. I'm glad she's not in pain anymore. She could barely stand up anymore and for the last 3 days she was not eating or going outside to potty. She expelled bile and then stopped breathing after contorting on our kitchen floor. :( I miss you, Akita (We named her after her breed, Akita.). Daddy loves you.

I'm sorry your dog is dead. but 14.5 years for a biggish dog like that is a good run. don't be sad she's gone, be happy she lived! also, everybody reading, take heed! don't procrastinate. spend your days productively with your dogs. they'll be gone before you know it. I'm sorry to tell you OP but you'll never get over her (if you actually loved her). that's how value in life is defined: once it's gone, you can never recover.

>will becoming a plant autist help with depression
I'd say my depression has gotten a little bit better since I started collecting plants. It's definitely not a magic cure, but it's been a great healthy distraction for me.
It can be a lonely hobby though, there aren't really any plant enthusiast meetups outside of social media groups. Also if you have money problems or are on a NEET budget it can become an expensive hobby as you go further down the planty rabbit hole.
Just buy some Pothos from the store, put it in your windowsill and see if you like it. Then expand from there to more difficult plants that interest you. If you want to start with something more exotic, get Drosera Capensis. You just have to give it lots of sun and leave it sitting in a small tray of distilled or RO water and it will do it's thing.

If somehow humans and all the monkey species disappeared one day from which animal would intelligent life evolve next?

Probably raccoons or otters imho.

Are we assuming orders of millions of years and that the end result will bear as little resemblance to the contemporary species as we do to our distant ancestors?

Then yes, the answer is raccoons and the runner-up's not even close. They occupy the same niche and fit the general description of our own progenitors (clever, adaptable, and with tiny little hands capable of fine manipulation) - and that avenue to intelligence worked once already, so it's the likeliest one to hypothetically work again as ecological niches ALWAYS get filled, and always go in cycles.
