During preparations I was caught watching my surroundings is a Pancho Villa-esque way......
Of course, the young 'uns could not resist meme-ifying it :)
Waiting to see if the other eggs also hatch!
Kinda cool to see him develop from small pup to a big and heavy adolescent dog. He still got one year to go to fully mature, but already weighs around 55 kilos and started developing good ojeriza!
Originally a gift for my wife to compensate for the loss of Sahara, but along the way it turns out we have stronger connection with each other than he has with my wife :)
Of course, we encourage teams from off island to come have at it.
(Especially our fellow airsoft players/teams from The Netherlands. We're always eager to lend a helping hand to look for a place to stay. Same extends to all nationalities, of course!)
Nice to see the system recuperating and doing well again. Mint is growing again and the pumpkin is growing fast after it germinated.
After last time (https://plus.google.com/117754310651579298630/posts/MmLgKmHDbbk), I got a testing kit and did some measurements. The system had a pH of around 8.5! Not surprising, since I filled the system with tap water for the most part and that has a pH of around the same.
Doing some quick calculations, I figured how much acid I needed to bring that down to a nice pH of around 7.
In the pic you can see the radishes recuperating from the iron deficiency the system had. Thanks to the people of Nos Kunuku, I got a pot of chelated iron to put into the system.
Now I have to incorporate the routine of acidifying the top off water and putting in iron every few weeks so I can keep a nicely balanced and producing system.
Amazingly, the fish (koi) seem not to be bothered by all of the above issues!
You may not be aware of where this photo came from but this is not funny. People are now eating lion meat and this is a farm for that purpose. This is a slaughterhouse.
I posted this message above (it's not their fault really) to the person who shared this without knowing these facts. This is not the first time I've been in a community where someone posts and doesn't "look closely' at what they are sharing or posting! In public posting too. Some of these funny animal photos are animals suffering and you should be able to tell the difference.
This person thought it funny that the loin doesn't want to go into the cage but look at the inside of the cage. It's filled with the misery of female lions who are to die to be eaten by humans that should be eating other things.
When did it become necessary to eat lions to survive? NEVER! They are beyond endangered and now they're being farmed like cattle. Lions are much smarter than cattle! Even people in the Bay Area are eating lion meat. Lion fucking tacos! Are we really that bored that we need to eat everything in the world? Who do we think we are? We act like Gods in this world! If we were starving it'd be different!!
I don't like what we have become! And don't point to the old days they were not educated like we are and the world was a different place then! A much bigger place! Disgusting behavior. I bet not a lot of poor and homeless people are eating lion either! Hell no!

I’m very much interested in the intersection of Biology and other areas of
science that overlap with Informatics (IT infrastructure, Databases,
Datawarehousing). And every other aspect of human life on this planet, as long as we can talk without antagonizing each other.
Friend and foe can and will tell you much more about me, so do not hesitate to ask them.
