Thats the antenna, not arista. To my knowledge the arista are the small thin bristle that protrudes from the antennae on many other species of diptera. Horse flies are among the flies that do not have arista on their antenna.

>Whats the evolutionary benefit of a distended vagina?
Makes it impossible to rape them, so perhaps it's evolved for females to make sure their genes aren't contaminated by substandard males, sort of how duck vagina are a maze with dead ends and shit so if a male duck rapes they can try to keep it out of their womb and if they are proper they can help direct the good duck towards the womb.

>>4167043
Female hyenas are actually bigger and stronger than the males by a good margin, and live longer too. Hard to say if they're smarter or not.
>>
>>4166880
Maybe after some tens of thousands of years of evolution they'll just go full on seahorse, female hyenas mount the males and inject eggs into a pseudo womb, which the male then releases sperm into to fertilize and begin pregnancy.

>female hyenas are actually bigger and stronger than the males by a good margin
Sort of. Immigrant males are often smaller and weaker, especially those that leave before they are fully grown (~4 years). Males who stay in their clan, at least until complete maturity, will be the same size as a female with comparable access to food, i.e. rank.
Unrelated note, but the very largest hyenas have very slightly (~1%) smaller brains. It is not known if this purely genetic or developmental. Or if it has any observable affect on intelligence.

Any cool perennial plants I can grow indoors?

Also will becoming a plant autist help with depression or is it just another futile attempt at escape that just drags you further into the pit?

Probably because of the Sun. For that I would concentrate on plants that do not need that much sunlight, so you may keep them in a semi-shaded area

Instead of giving them free food, give them free condoms, feminism, and higher education so they stop breeding like the infant mortality rate is 90% and can make their own food. Not western industrial worker education either, no prussian system, educate them like pioneer americans were since the prussian system is designed for developed industrial states.

If you're us, what appeared to be a carnie goldfish was in fact a Prussian fucking carp that the carnie had definitely just pulled out of one of our town's many lakes. Got it this gorgeous 20 gallon tank, accessories, tank-cleaning species and a few little friends for company. Everything's gonna be great, we are A+++ new fish owners up in here. The fucker won't stop growing. Just gets bigger and bigger, eating all the food and shitting up the tank. Big grey slab of asshole fish. Never pretty, never golden, never pleasant to have; just endlessly growing and shitting and bullying the smaller fish.

It lived for eight goddamn years.

I just want to grow some flowers but every time I put out planters, raccoons dig them up. I got one that goes on my deck railing and just put potting soil in it, no seeds, and there were no bugs in it, it still got dug through last night.

How can I stop them? I have some cayenne powder, I'm thinking maybe mix that in with the soil. I can't really kill them since they come when I'm asleep. I already have motion lights but they aren't bothered by them at all.

I've seen people mention chicken wire, is that effective for raccoons? I bet they could reach through it.

Here's jimson weed for reference. I'm not sure how heat stable the active alkaloids are, but it may also be possible to boil a slurry down into a highly potent concentrate to inject into meat or hotdogs.

Be prepared for raccoons smoking invisible cigarettes and having conversations with invisible raccoons.

raccoons disapprove of your gay-ass flowers. get better plants

Just put the pots in one of those garbage cages specifically meant to keep vermin out of the trash until the plants are big enough they won't be bothered

Or grow tthem indoors for a few months
>>
>>4175940
They know squirrels bury nuts in planters. That's why they're doing that. Raccoons are pretty smart, but they don't like humans or human smells very much. Yes, a chicken wire box would work, but psychological deterrence also works if you're willing to put in the time and effort of running out there at night to catch them red-handed. They'll stop coming to your house if you run out there a couple times to yell at them. If you leave out a really dirty worn shirts or socks right next to your favorite plants they tend to stay away from the area as well. That's a gross and ghetto solution, but it does work for some people. Leaving out sacrificial cat food or something is a bad idea. Mixed message. They'll keep coming back for that.

Hey /an/, so my cat is having his hind leg amputated on Monday, it's broken in two places due to an animal attack. I can give those details if anyone's interested, but my question is, what can I do in the meantime to keep him as comfortable as possible? The vet gave me two medications to give him over the weekend, so he's pretty doped up, but the vet was super busy at the time, so he didn't give me any info on how to care for him in the meantime.

This country is one hot mess
I live in a small town in Texas “on the come up” (ie lots of califrogs shitting up everything everywhere)
The other day at work when I was delivery wood to a guy who just moved in, his incredibly autistic kids come running up. And god. Damn. Was it BAD
First thing I hear?
>daaaad, why is my taco not here NOT EPIC BRO
Suddenly I hear a shrieking girls voice wailing with laughter. This perhaps 9-10 year old girl with 2 phones in both hands runs in with a shitty poodle screaming
>”ahahaha get b-b-b-based on!”
And kept repeating that ad-Infinitum as he kept asking me “where I got my sketchers from” (I wear steel toe boots)
I’m gonna LOVE living here for the rest of my life
