About communist woodpeckers and acorn granaries Heart

"A typical granary tree contains hundreds or even thousands of acorns—the largest on record contained around 50,000. Almost every square inch of the tree’s trunk and limbs may be covered with acorn-filled holes, the cumulative result of multiple generations of individuals each drilling more and more every year. The Acorn Woodpecker is unique in having a centralized food store constructed and defended communally. An entire family group may rally to defend against such potential acorn thieves as squirrels and jays, as well as against other Acorn Woodpeckers from outside their group."

That picture seriously has my throat closing and my gut turning... I hate holes like that...

RE: What Did You Learn Today?
Today, I mostly learned about human nature.
I learned that some people are genuine and others are all about themselves.
I have had a good day today, and I am gong to bed thinking happy thoughts.

RE: What Did You Learn Today?
Hm, I've learned a lot from my (ill) grandmother and taking care for her. Really beaming after having spent the entire day helping her and following her caprices. If you chose to let go of your ego and listen to another human being instead, you inevitably learn a lot about yourself. Things like coffee being a lot tastier when the coffeepot's water is put to a slower boil.

What hurtcore is. I wish I haven't Sadcryface

(What is even worse, I now think this is pretty much what I had to translate yesterday. I truly detest that woman with every fibre of my being and sincerely and unashamedly wish she could experience in real life just one-tenth of the demeaning, misogynistic, racist crap she vomits on the pages.)

RE: What Did You Learn Today?
Today I learned two things.
1) To be careful cooking when I'm sick.
2) When boiling water melts your skin, it's better to remove the dead tissue after cooling the burned area in water.
(Whenever I crashed my bike I made sure to gnaw off the lose skin-bits to get at the grit pushed underneath immediately, since the pain of the fall would blot out anything else. So, that habit worked against me this time. Live and learn.)

I have an idea what this might be, but I'm not sure I want to learn. Blink

Wow, I was born in '88, although my father was born in '71 (Yep...do the maths) so he was still growing up, and taught me about some of the stuff he had as a [younger] kid lol. I grew up with 70's/early 80's shit, and didn't get anything new until I could buy it myself in the late 90's early 00's lol.

Am I sub division of a Xennial? Laugh out load
