Water Lettuce, or Pistia stratiotes, is a floating plant that is easy to grow in both aquariums and ponds. It is a relatively fast growing plant that spreads by runners across the surface of the water. It has velvety leaves, and when grown outside in a pond, it can get about the size of a head of lettuce. In an aquarium they stay much smaller. They are not only decorative, but they also remove lots of nutrients from the water which helps to reduce algae.

In the wild rabbits consume large amounts of nutritionally poor grasses, shoots, and ground covers. They have numerous adaptations that allow them to thrive eating foods that other herbivores cannot. One of these are open rooted teeth that grow for their entire lives. These teeth grow continually…
Dakarai Molokomme, a 15-year-old starving child from a small village in Zimbabwe, has just told Madonna, one of the most famous pop stars in the world, to go and f*** herself, the local media are reporting exclusively.
“Yes, it’s true, I told Madonna to go f*** herself. Do you want to know why?” Dakarai asked. “It’s the same thing every time with these snobby rich Americans. Every once in a while they come to show us their support for the so-called eradication of poverty by adopting a child from a starving family, but they actually do more harm than good. Transracial international adoptions are part of the white savior industrial complex,” Dakarai explained.
In further discussions with journalists from the media, the kid stated that “none of the children here actually want to be taken away from their family and friends so they can be displayed as some kind of trophy in the homes of self-righteous singers or actors who want to score some points with the media and Oprah.”
“If they really want to help us, they should get Big Pharma to ship us some anti-retroviral drugs for the AIDS epidemic, or build schools and hospitals. If they don’t want to do that, then they can all go f** themselves!” the child told reporters.
The 15-year-old also stated that he would say the same thing to any one of those American or European “faux humanitarian posers”, except for Bono, whom he said he would also kick in the groin.
“Bono’s efforts to save the African savage from itself prove that the colonial imperative is alive and well,” Dakarai said as he walked with other village children collecting sticks to build a tree fort.
THIS IS THE RAWEST 15 YEAR OLD ALIVE
Some of my favorite Calvin and Hobbes strips. Bill Watterson had such an incredible cryptic and philosophical style, and it just makes me excited to read the comics over and over again.
i grew up reading these comics and the best thing is re-reading them as you get older and thinking that they are even more great than they were as a kid, because you can realte more and more to Calvin
Kind of shocked I don’t see more of these guys on here.

"Hufflepuffs are known to have good friends in Slytherin. Hufflepuffs are some of the few who won’t judge based on negative rumours. This means they’re the most likely to approach Slytherins and help them when in need. This makes amazingly loyal friends between the houses. Mess with a Hufflepuff, and you’ll likely find a Slytherin getting revenge for the more forgiving house."
HELL YEAH FUCKING RIGHT
it’s true doe
He now has a new real aquatic plant with big soft leaves. He seems to like it.
The girl at the Petsmart laughed and said,”You’re back already?” I told her I was back for a fish plant. She rung it up and then joked, “Do you need assistance carrying it to your car?” And then said she’ll see me later when I come in.
The fish at least looks less appalled now I’ve replaced his plant than he did when I took the plastic one out. And he’s swimming around more happily in general!
