I put some old, cleaned-out Escargot shells into my aquarium for decoration and today, both of my Assassin Snails discovered them.
Hours apart, each one in turn nestled itself face-first into the larger snail shell. I guess you could even call it…
SNAILCEPTION! … What? We’re not doing the -ception suffix meme any more? Damn.
Well anyways, all I need now is for an acute bladder snail to crawl in there and get eaten by one of them and I’ll have the snail equivalent of a Turducken.
Is something wrong with me or did 90% of the female eye-sets in that social intelligence test display no emotion whatsoever???
Like, both the eyes AND brows were in completely neutral positions? Meanwhile most of the male eye-sets have all kinds of emotive scrunching and tensing going on?
I forget, is it acceptable to shop at Walmart or has the corporation done anything socially unjust lately?
People who can’t separate “Sexually attractive to me personally” and “Just attractive in general” are the worst.
Because they also tend to be the people who think every public photo on the internet is waiting for THEIR prestigious critique, and I feel like there’d be a LOT less body shaming in the world if it wasn’t for these people.
You ever been out in public and suddenly you see a person who looks EXACTLY like one of your OCs.
The self restraint required to be respectful and not stare at this random person like some kind of creeper.. This is where your social abilities are truly challenged, my friends.
My scientific interest in these snails is completely out of control and I’m probably boring the fuck out of all my friends and followers with all this snailblogging…
But tbh I really don’t care, the drive of scientific interest feels so good.
Observation of Assassin Snail Behavior: Solitary vs Multiple
1 Assassin Snail: Highly active, spent much of time slowly cruising all around tank.
2 Assassin Snails: Both are lazy reclusive assholes now. Change hiding spots at most once per day and stay there ALL day. Would think they weren’t hunting at all if not for prey snail shells littered around (mostly within hiding locations)
Sigh…. I know WHY they did it, but that doesn’t make it a good idea.
Actually… it doesn’t seem that the treads are actually touching the ground. So the wheels are probably sort of retractable. Go fast on asphalt/stone, retract wheels and keep going on everything else.
Or REALLY deep mud where the wheels might sink in to the point the treads touch down anyways, where said wheels would otherwise be stuck. (I bet Spintires players wish they had one of these things)
Or maybe even really rocky terrain, where you might otherwise get the chassis stuck on top of an outcropping
Look, I’ve made a personal commitment to not wishing death on anyone, buuut… saying we should round up every MRA on the planet and exile them to an island somewhere doesn’t count, right?
I mean yeah I’d wager they all die from their lack of life skills and physical weakness by the end of the first month but… that’d be out of our hands.
Pet peeve: When a show dedicates an entire episode to the idea that no matter how non-feminine or impersonal a female character normally is, the MINUTE they come into contact with any random child their personality will become completely overwritten by maternal instinct.
I mean, heaven forbid a woman have an identity unrelated to children or a non-motherly personality, right?
