this isnt a solution for people who are knocked out for 12 hours straight every time they take them. And no, non-drowsy antihistamines do not work for any situation
>non-drowsy antihistamines do not work for any situation
Motherfucker, antihistamines bind to your histamine receptors which keeps histamine from binding to them. They act by the same mechanism.
Newer ones are better because they don't cross the blood-brain barrier, so they don't make you drowsy. They fucking do work, and some of them work for 24 hours or longer, meaning you can take a pill every day and never notice your allergy ever again.
you know this doesnt work for everyone, right? Just because it works that way for you doesnt mean its a universal experience. Go ahead and name a few but ive never tried a non-drowsy antihistamine that did a damn thing for me. Benedryl, Zantac, Allegra, Claratin, Allevert and a slew of off-brand shit all just knock me out in 20 minutes though it DOES stop symptoms

They expect me to believe that a creature this size could not only move its vast mass around but do so on a diet of leaves fed through that tiny head and throat. How could possibly gain enough energy even to stand up never mind move constantly grazing, mating and avoiding predators? I think THEY went too far with this one. Dinosaurs are either a lie or totally misinterpreted.

That is a sperm whale, they hunt larger prey. Also blue whale can suck their food source really easily. What was the primary diet of the argentinosaurus?

Hat are some trashy drinks you’d expect to see a raccoon drinking? Would a name brand be too classy, and instead the raccoons would be stuck drinking some knockoff like Moon Mist or Dr. Thunder?

Mountain Dew is a pretty good soda. I would drink it more if they had a caffeine-free version since I'm usually already geeked to the tits every day.

this is fart

A friend of mine has a ton of Lampyris glow worms under a pine tree by his driveway.
I took about 20 or so larvae and transported them to my house which is 30 minutes away and put them under the pine tree in my yard.
What are the chances they survive and create a colony at my house? I have a ton of biodiversity in my yard, but glow worms are one that I dont have but am really interested in having (these are the kind that flicker a blue-white light in the trees making an incredible shimmer effect)
>What are the chances they survive and create a colony at my house?
You only get one shot.
Do not miss your chance to blow, this opportunity comes once in a life time.

When asking a question, make sure to include these details:

>Then I want to take the cardboard walls off so I can see inside. But will that just stress it out all over again?
This isn't particularly necessary for an animal as relaxed as a corn snake but it doesn't hurt. You could remove one of those cardboard pieces right away. Having 3.5 walls blocked is plenty.
is a hognose tho

I realize my enclosure is too big, that's why I'm filling it with so much stuff
>is a hognose tho
Okay. Still no problem. Snake will be fine as you have provided lots of places to hide. Recommend tossing in a paper towel tube as well. Those are beloved of all snake.
