It was posted on HN again today, was decently upvoted this time, and is still on front page right now: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=40282671

That's where Drewski got it, I reckon.

u/neolib showed this to me. Excellent read. I had no idea muskrats were struggling.

And this is adorable:

They were found beside a road, likely orphaned siblings, and spent much of their time cuddling, grooming, and talking in high-pitched voices. One had a broken leg and stayed in their hideout during the weeks it took to heal. At feeding times, his sister would emerge, fetch him a piece of apple or some other delectable treat, and then go back for her own serving before joining him.

Blue, mysterious and arriving by the millions: the alien-like creatures blanketing US beaches - Masses of ephemeral organisms known as ‘by-the-wind sailors’ wash up in a ‘blue tide’ on the west coast most years but warmer winter seas could be increasingly their numbers by neolib in Nature

I like your question. There must be some spiritual correspondence to this event. But I don't know what it is.

Another name for the creatures is "by the wind" sailors. The spirit is like wind: invisible but we see its effects. Sailors are in the Navy. Poison can make sick and kill. San Diego is a Navy port which could suffer an attack.

Blue is the color for the Democrats, and they rule over the west coast.

God has warned that the west coast will suffer catastrophic earthquakes, unlike ever seen before in our generation, that change the borders of the land and sea.

The sun going dark during the day shows that the nation has become evil and is due for judgment. Sin is being paraded about in broad daylight, whereas in the past it was kept in secret, dark places. What is good is now called evil and what is evil is called good. Night is called day and day is called night.

Those that abide in the light shall not stumble because we see the Lord leading us.

It's probably not quite as fun as it sounds. Male bees always die when they cum, which means they only get to do it once. It's just supposed to be in a royal pussy, which I suppose is still something to live for, if that's the kind of power fantasy you're into.

The lake trout are predatory and invasive, not native to the area. Other methods have not been able to remove them. This method blankets the bottom of the lake with a film that keeps oxygen away from the eggs before they mature.

This reasoning makes my brain hurt.

Basically because they have already classified neanderthals as a separate species (for political reasons) and humans and neanderthals interbred successfully they want to change the definition of species rather than admit they made a mistake and humans and neanderthals were always just variations within one species.

Those fuckers go after your peppers too? I see it when they flower. I use a neem oil spray, it degrades rapidly so it's food safe, and although it's a contact kill only, it'll get aphid eggs.
