    [–] CMV: Having public school kids (middle/high school age) visit a slaughterhouse at least once is a good idea Hyoscine 3 points ago in changemyview

    As a vegetarian parent, on first pass I love this idea. I also strongly disagree with most of the highly upvoted comments here. I would love for my kid to understand where all her food comes from, and who conflates easier parenting with better parenting? Anyway! For me, the biggest drawback to the abattoir tour idea is that witnessing death up close could be too much for kids who have experienced previous trauma (such as losing a pet or a family member).

    [–] When you’re a med student and surgery equipment expires they throw it out= free plant grooming tools! Hyoscine 3 points ago in PlantedTank

    Nice! I planted all my limnophila with an old pair of bone nibblers. I'd love some Spencer Wells, but ours get sterilised and reused. : /

    [–] Trump spends day two of national emergency golfing, snagging an omelette Hyoscine 3 points ago in politics

    I'm getting kinda tired of seeing this parroted everywhere. I'm poor as fuck, and it really doesn't affect my ability to spot crassness when I see it.

    [–] Well, that sucks... Hyoscine 3 points ago in Wellthatsucks

    At the time, maybe the blandest town in Essex. It was a pretty unlikely find.

    [–] Well, that sucks... Hyoscine 35 points ago in Wellthatsucks

    I had this happen to me once. Found a hacksaw blade on the walk home though, which made the rest of my commute feel like a point n click adventure.

    [–] hmmm Hyoscine 23 points ago in hmmm

    Nobody is telling you that. I think it's just hmmm from the bird's perspective.

    [–] Tell us what you did with your British Asparagus Hyoscine 18 points ago in CasualUK

    Look, we're all adults here. So we can play with our food if we want to.

    [–] A new male from my last spawn hehe hes a stunner! Enjoy Hyoscine 2 points ago in Aquariums

    Frank, you're single-handedly making me want to keep fish. These are beautiful...

    [–] FTS - update on my first planted aquarium - fluval edge 10 weeks in Hyoscine 1 points ago in PlantedTank

    Looks lush! Can I ask, do you get much algae directly beneath the additional lights? I'm thinking of lighting a big jarrarium that way, but I'm worried I might be making a lot of work for myself.

    [–] My mom isn't as excited as I am so I coming to you guys. Hyoscine 2 points ago in shrimptank

    Of to a great start! All the best with your little colony. : )

    [–] What's going on with Ellen Page and Chris Pratt being anti-LGBTQ? Hyoscine 116 points ago in OutOfTheLoop

    Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

    Jesus wholeheartedly agrees with you.

    [–] Does hip hop accept people from other countries rapping in english? Hyoscine 2 points ago in makinghiphop

    I think the only thing that matters is that you don't pretend to be something you're not. That's not to say you have to rap about who you are or where you're from (like white rappers referencing being white is kinda tedious IMO), but there's no need to put on a North American accent, or allude to different kind of upbringing from your own. But yeah, I think you should go for it.

    [–] My mom isn't as excited as I am so I coming to you guys. Hyoscine 11 points ago in shrimptank

    Nice one OP! Just be sure to acclimate your guys kinda slowly as the water in the ecosphere could be very different from what you've prepared. Opae ula tolerate a really wide range of parameters, but would probably still appreciate being eased into their nice new surroundings.

    [–] ELI5 the point in keyboard sticky keys Hyoscine -3 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    It might not have been eli5, but the most unhelpful possible answer to this question wouldn't give you a relevant term to Google.

    [–] This is not a fake quote. This is not taken out of context. She actually said these exact words in that exact order. Hyoscine 4 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago) in Fuckthealtright

    I selectively quoted you as the rest of your comment was factual.

    What missing context would make your assertion less completely wrong?


    Just to be clear, here's where I'm coming from.

    [–] I know it sounds weird but it's super helpful when producing... Hyoscine 2 points ago in makinghiphop

    Sounds like a good way to stay focused and not just fuck about for a few hours. I'll give it a go!

    [–] I've acquired a 20 litre bottle, the neck of which I can only just fit hand through. What could I plant in it that would almost never need trimming? Hyoscine 1 points ago in PlantedTank

    I think giant hairgrass would look beautiful, but I'd probably struggle to keep the runners in check. A larger anubis could fit the bill exactly though. Cheers, I think you might have set me in the right direction here!

    Thanks, I hadn't thought of buce! That's a great idea for the foreground.

    AFAIK, there's no such thing as tall bucephalandra? I'd love something like cryptocoryne balansae, but a little darker and shorter... I've grown some mystery clipping I was given, and I love the look of it, but am I right in thinking they rarely get taller than around fifteen centimetres?
