Your friends and family don't love you. They love the things you produce and do. The moment you stop providing, you are trashed.
Only if you believe that love is = oxytocin, serotonin, dopamine and endorphins
it is. cope all you want but your emotions are not magically different because you can write shitty poems about them later. a magnetic hat can force you to believe in god or become an atheist that wants to see immigrants fuck his wife. you are a machine, an android, made of goo.

whats the most aesthetic egg laying hen
USDA hardiness region 9a if it matters, i've heard birds with elaborate combs can have issues with cold weather but it usually doesn't get much under freezing here, only occasionally we'll get a bad week down into the low 20s or teens.

production is nice but i eat like 8-10 eggs a week maybe so even relatively low producers would probably more than meet my needs.
Ba gock.
Yeah, they like bathing in the dirt on warm summer days, cozying up to each other at night, and interacting with humans that spend lots of time with them. I had a hen who would jump on a chair I was sitting in on my patio just for the sake of hanging out. Depending on the breed, they can be social sweethearts or mindless stereotypes.

My gf wants to get a cat but for some reason is willing to die on the hill that the cat is going to be an outside cat that free roams the neighbourhood and also is not going to wear a bell collar and we can't put a leash on it or put make an enclosure.

I'm very passionate about conservation of native wildlife and am wholly opposed to people who let their cats free roam since they're responsible for absolutely devastating wildlife in their local area because of it. They only hunt for sport and are fed routinely by their owners. My gf really wants to get a cat but is adamant we can't have any control over it. How the fuck do I get over this hurdle? I sent her articles and videos specific to cat invasiveness in our countries and she just responded "those are just theories."

I don't mind cats, I think they're cute, but I swore if I ever owned one I wouldn't be one of the people who lets their cats contribute to the destruction of native wildlife. How the fuck do I get over this hurdle without breaking up with my gf. She won't take "we don't get a cat" as an option.

Stop sending your pets to their brutal deaths if you are upset by it. If it’s so awful to just look at a picture of an animal you have no connection to maybe you should try to prevent such an awful act from occurring. You and OP’s girlfriend just don’t want to clean a litter box, and are willing to let your cat fall victim to predation, disease, and cars to avoid it.
It's doable but mostly pretends where you live. Be prepared for your outdoor cat not showing up for a couple days sometimes and be prepared to deal with fleas and ticks and it throwing up on your carpet after eating some strange animal
>twist her into realising she is going to kill our cat quicker
Be careful in how you approach that, may backfire if her old cats had reasonably long and healthy lifespans. Personal experience is usually going to justify her opinions despite any facts to the contrary.

Dunno if it’ll help, but it might be worthwhile to bring up the prevalence of what’s basically cat AIDs (FIV). Pretty much the only reason it’s so common now is because fuckers let their cats roam around fighting and/or support a large feral population. Can then blame those types of people for ruining “free spirit cats” for everyone else, which might help direct her to a frame of mind where she feels you agree with and validate her retarded opinions but realize that cat ownership just doesn’t work like her childhood anymore.

Other topics that might be relevant include stuff like T. gondii killing off cute seals because of cat shit being washed/dumped into the ocean or that even washed raw plants aren’t safe to eat because of cat shit contaminating the fields.
Get a new girlfriend. This one is both stupid and mentally ill. Think about her genetic contribution toward your children and you'll understand you need to act sooner rather than later.

I know it's fiction but in Hannibal a guy induces coma in diabetic patients and then uses them as substrate to grow mushrooms while they are still alive. Theoretically is that possible? Is there a proper method to do it?

I was mushroom hunting with my brothers today by the local wildlife park. The guys running the place seem to have stopped using woodchip mulch, which sucks because we probably wont get many mushrooms without it. I'm thinking of sneaking in my own stuff for later. I got to see a tiger for free though. They're MASSIVE.
It would be cool if we worked like Bulbasaurs and had plant armor on our backs.

Not wrong, as someone who appreciates wasps. Just birds doing their thing. Unless you’re feeding house sparrows and starlings.

you don’t know a thing about eating meat. all meat is allowed to rest for days if not weeks to make it more tender. fresh kills are harder to eat and taste worse. just cook it, or have a stronger stomach so you don’t get sick.

Well this ones a swallowtail, someone must have tried that first
Eh, judging by how much butterflies love drinking piss, salty road puddles, and dead fish juice, it is pretty plausible that they enjoy sipping on salted butter too. Maybe unsalted butter too, but that usually isn’t left out in the open.
