    The tone difference in foraging guides between native plants and invasive plants is literally so funny to read

    Foraging guide entry on native plants: Make sure you only take a small amount from a well-established patch. Leave some for the wildlife, and yourself next year! Please get involved in land restoration programs to protect this plant for the future :)

    It’s similar for wildlife.

    Brochure about native fish: Remember to only fish for approved species at the appropriate time of year and only with a license and correct fishing gear. These rules exist to make sure we don’t damage local fish populations and these amazing animals can be around for future generations!

    Brochure about invasive lionfish: You can kill them with a SPEAR, you can kill them with a HOOK, you can kill them with your BARE HANDS (but watch out for the spines)…did we mention the flesh of this spicy devil fish is DELICIOUS?? Do your part for the environment and CONSUME THE PROBLEMSRIC LION OF THE SEA.

    How did a cartoon as good as Kipo and full of funny mutant animals have three seasons over two years and still virtually zero fandom that I ever saw?

    Somewhere, there’s a universe where it trended enough for there to be Dave merchandise.

    Sorry yes my mistake it was ONE year, three seasons and a proper finale in just one year but with virtually no advertising. It was a vibrantly colorful post apocalyptic setting of mutated creatures with sweet, touching character arcs including one of the best villain redemptions I’ve seen in a cartoon. There is absolutely, positively no way this could have flown by without an enormous following if it had been a weekly tv series or even just drawn out over smaller 5-episode chunks.

    Some people think Netflix was reluctant to draw too much attention to it because a main character is gay and we know he’s gay by halfway through the series rather than a last-episode, last-scene reveal - something Netflix was still supposedly apprehensive about even in She-Ra.

    Others think they were just overeager to dump out all the animated content they could while kids were stuck at home from covid, taking advantage of the fact that they were selling more subscriptions than any other year and hoping a lot of those new customers would stay.

    We’ll probably never know if there was any particular reason unless the crew talks about it some day, but the series has been over for months now with so little fanfare I can’t even see them getting interviews or convention panels or anything.

    Obviously if you already have netflix you may as well watch it there, especially because you can change the audio language if you find any characters annoying (no offense to Kipo herself but the writers did give her some pretty hokey one-liners) but if you don’t have netflix and you like cool cartoons, do yourself a favor and go to kimcartoon.li, then search “kipo.”

    all jokes aside, it makes me very sad how literally the entire internet, especially social media, has just become more and more unapologetic in trying to wring as much money out of you as possible. can’t go on youtube without being bombarded by youtube red ads promising that if you just give them money, they’ll block the pesky ads who are also begging for your money. can’t stream a movie without searching for it on each of the dozens and dozens of streaming platforms. all demanding individual subscriptions for their tiny share of the world’s movies that used to just all be on netflix. every news site counting down your free three articles, all the while begging you to turn your adblock off. click off instagram’s stupid shopping tab, and the first post on your timeline is with #ad. and of course, now, tumblr’s adding post plus. i hate it!! hate getting advertised at everywhere i go. hate that social media’s not even supposed to be social anymore, just another thing to monetize. i’m so sick of it!!! can’t escape it ever!!! give us 9.99 per month for exclusive fucking content!! fuck!!

    I saw a Tweet today from a doctor who caught COVID even though she was vaccinated after spending two days seeing COVID patients. But here’s the kicker - she saw the patients briefly, she wore a mask and she saw them outside.

    Thats how contagious these new variants are. Be careful folks and don’t forget to mask up. Personally I’m back double masking with an N95.

    [ID: Two Tweets from Dr. Claudia William MD, MScHAL @DrCSWilliam “I woke up and feel like shit after seeing > 60 ppl with COVID symptoms in the last 48 hrs. Headache, Runny nose, my body hurts, coughing, feeling hot & no it’s not allergies. It’s called a breakthrough infection, glad I’m vaccinated but this is not good at all. 🥺😢😬 I spent very little time with patients face to face, if I did, it was outside. Fully masked up. Why am I saying this? Because this means the variants are HIGHLY contagious, which matches the data we have seen about the delta variant. We need to be taking EXTRA precautions not less.”]
