I just broke with my girlfriend because she brought three abandoned puppies she found on the street. She wants them to give them for adoption but currently we already have 4 dogs and 9 cats and I can't stand the possibility of becoming more of an animal hoarder. We already changed our lives for living with the animals so they could live well but I just couldn't take it anymore. I don't know why I'm posting this, maybe for some support, maybe to tell me I'm an idiot. I love her, but I can't deal with the sudden appearances of abandoned animals. In... Comment too long.

I am definitely not a misanthrope, I love many aspects of my humanity. But whenever I really stop and think about what the human race has done do this planet, I feel sick to my stomach. I try not to focus on the news, but as much as I try to ignore it, these concerns keep coming back. Sometimes I worry how human wars and conquest will affect nature, and I understand how humans operate. We have no regard for the natural world, humans don't care about maintaining sustainability as long as the money keeps flowing in. We nearly destroyed a lot of bird populations through the...

Welp, the key is to make it so that you are happier than them. They want to be stockbrokers and swim in hookers because the rap vids tell them to.
We just need to have more fun and lighten up, but hold true to what is right, and speak out. Have fun, make friends, and if you can show them what nature can do, they will start to understand. I've posted so many scientific plant and bug names that other people have been posting them too, do you know how much knowledge their accessibility makes?
Help people learn the sciencey names and understand that most... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2021484 And in the long run, we have spread the means for new speciation. Hawaii wasn't covered in as many flowers as it is now. It didn't have enough constantly blooming flowers to support hummingbirds, but now it does. We are witnessing speciation. We brought dandelions everywhere and they are able to destroy our roads, and fix the soil that we so carelessly trample. They help you digest fatty food.
Nature changes, and even if life gets set back to bacteria, Keep in mind that 99% of known species went extinct... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Depends on your kitty's temperament. If she's very social and attached to you, it'd probably be more stressful to leave her behind. If she's fairly independent and/or you know she hasn't done well with adjusting to change in the past (many cats don't), let her stay in your apartment.
So I finally had this date. It was with a lady from the internet. We were having a good time, she was laughing at my jokes and showed positive body language. I showed her my town, we had some drinks and so on. I was about to say goodbye, when she asked if she could go to my place. I was getting kind of nervous. Should I do this at the first date? Normally, I do not show my ant farm to a lady after the first date.
But, since everything was going that well I didn't want to disappoint her. I figured we could go to my place and just ignored that awesome ant farm I have.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Is there some chemical shit specific to each person that dogs can sense that can put them off, or something like that? My dog hates me for no reason that I can discern

I've got a Double-Tail (pic related) that absolutely shredded about 50% of his finnage in the past 24 hours. I noticed some nipping around the edges when I gave him breakfast yesterday morning, not much more in the evening.
He's generally pretty aggressive, to the point of being a complete asshole to females (will attack them to cause harm more than often. I've stopped trying to breed him.) He's nipped his own fins in the past, but only a couple bites, usually when he can see his reflection, or another betta he can't get to. He gets a serious... Comment too long.

>>2020077 The filter is really barely more than a trickle. Enough to get the water around the bottom of the tank moving so the pleco can continue being a couch potato. More than a few inches away from the source, the current is just strong enough to push a memeball a few more inches away. On the other side is the 1" aerator stone that creates its own current.
I doubt either of these are bothering the betta, since he tends to stay toward the surface most of the day, on the side furthest from the aerator.
