I picked some flowers today by cutting the stem, and placing them into a jar with a lid on it. Turns out they're probably water hemlock. Am I going to die? I had minimal contact with the plant, mostly just my finger tips, and I have washed them a few times, and avoided all contact with my face before hand. This was about 3 hours ago, and I don't think I have any symptoms.

Who knew this plant was so insanely common in my area. I was in the scouts for years and I swear they taught me nothing of value.

a quick google search notes that you're mostly at risk for poison if you eat the fucking thing.
>>
Yeah i noticed that also but I guess its a folk healing remedy to rub the plant against your skin, and thats also recommended against because apparently that can poison also. I don't know this for certain but I think the sap is rubbed on the skin in that case and not just the stalks or flowers

These little guys are tossed into freezers, suffocated, their babies aswell, or even fed alive to reptiles in completely unnatural situations they cant escape.
They can love, they care for their babies, they bond with their owner, yet, a bunch of people on this board casually talks about how they fed their disgisting eating and shitting machines(reptiles , amphibians) a "fuzzy" here, a "pinky" there like its completely normal to cause unneccessary suffering to an animal which is close to us as a mammal and then claim "iTs NaTuRe"
Even if it was(its absolutely not), theres enough suffering in nature already. The fact that youre okay with small animals suffering for your hobby says a lot about you.
I hereby manifest uncurable cancer in every person whom ever fed an animal other than a bug to their pet, live or frozen, and wish them all the worst. Thank you and goodbye.

Not all animals are created equal, intelligent mammals are above all other life. Only mammals have souls. Other animals do not experience life, they merely perform it. Additionally, Snakes have been one of humanity's worst enemies through our entire history even in myth and religion. In fact, even today, snakes are the third animal who kills most humans only behind Mosquitoes and other humans.

Imagine owning a pet that literally pisses on you daily while you clean it up not only for free, but pay money to house and feed it so it can continue to piss on you. Rat "people" are lower than jannies.

My mother is hardcore convinced the world is ending Sunday due to "Bible prophecies" and has implied multiple times she is preparing to have her pets put to sleep due to this. These are healthy, young animals that have at least another 10 years left in them. She lives 1200 miles away so I can't just go pick them up myself, but are there agencies I can call that will forcefully go in and confiscate her pets and give them a better home? She is losing her ability to care for them. I don't know what to do in these situations.

Thanks, yeah. She seemed to give zero rat's asses about my dad either who is 82 and needs assistance, like having 3 doctor's visits this week I have to drive him to. We only have 1 car and she said I will have to leave him to fend for himself against the rioters and home looters and drive 1100 miles which all the freeways will be clogged with crashed cars from all the drivers who were ratpured, and get these cats. Only got about 13 hours left in her "schedule" so it'll be interesting to see what her take is then.

Dogs eat cats like, everywhere. You just aren’t familiar with it because you’ve been sheltered from the reality by careful breed selection and socialization. Mostly really friendly dogs too, like greyhounds, GSP/GWPs, and malamutes.

A 84-year-old neighbor of mine passed away, and her son started leasing her place out. Soon after, hoodlums moved in and brought their pit bulls, which all died vomiting blood. It was awful to see. Then, a few weeks later, the same thing happened to the pups. Do you think it might be something they're eating? It's such a sad case that they keep dying.

Mudslime fanfiction. Your fake religion is a corrupted form of christianity. The quran was not even attributed to pedohamed until hundreds of years after he died. The torah/Old Testament is the word of god and his (real) prophets. The quran is a stolen text from an invalid christian sect. The New Testament is the word of Christ and his apostles. The hadith are as bullshit as the catholic saints.

>nooo false we are moral!
Muslims have the highest rate of animal abuse outside of china and africa. Iran explicitly permits fucking a goat in law. The reason being the he said she said system your heretical christian cult is based off of is eternally up for debate. Abandon that faith of satan and seek Christ (the messiah). The islam you want to believe in already exists explicitly and inarguably in the bible. May ever muslim country burn for their heresy. Oh wait they already are, gj God.

Due to wolf extirpation, deer and coyote are vermin. They HAVE to be hunted or they will cause even more ecological damage.

Elk, caribou, and moose hunts on the other hand are totally pointless and only exist to make the staties another few thousand. We do not have a surplus of elk or moose. In fact, we have a deficit, and staties will do dumb shit like blame wolf reintroduction for population deficits when the real cause is hunting permits suppression the population. If they simply told hunters to fuck off, wolves would not be a problem for those animals. Of course if they left the wolves alone, deer overpopulation would not be long for this world and profits from hunting tags would plummet as the populations struck a balance and it became impossible for humans to kill additional deer without harming the ecosystem. For this reason, they hold wolf culls and lie through their teeth saying this:

"Wolves are overpopulated and are threatening the deer population"

You have no idea how much of a fucked up racket hunting is. It's needed, but for the wrong reasons, and if we fixed our shit it would not be needed, so they keep fucking up instead.
>>
>>4311103
There are not enough deer in the woods for every man or even half of them. We have way, way more people than deer, the problem with deer is there's so little forest land left we still have too many deer. Because there are so many people.

If you want to pull the self sufficiency card, hunting is a red herron. consider that it is illegal to have livestock in most cities and towns, even hens, and in other places it is even illegal to grow a garden on your own land. You can only have grass and inedible landscaping. This is to keep you dependent on centralized food production. Hunting is just noise to the oppression machine. It's a small minority of people putting a large amount of effort into a small minority of their food. Hunting does more to keep you enslaved than it does to help you. There is a massive industry built around selling you useless shit and complexes of laws obliging you too, when back in the day your granddad would shoot deer on the side of the road with a .22.
