In case you needed proof that Peta is literal scum. 

Not to mention that in a 2010 inspection conducted by a VDACS veterinarian, it was discovered that 84 percent of the animals Peta took in were killed within 24 hours. [source]

Being one, I can vouch that 99.9% of vegitarians believe PETA is actual pond scum

Apiaceae — The Carrot Family

Be humble with the umbel! This family includes delicious food plants, wonderful medicines, as well as deadly poisons – and many look very much alike, especially in leaf and flower! Never use a wild Apiaceae plant without 100% positive identification.

Identification Tips

  • Inflorescence - Small flowers in umbels or compound umbels. Umbels are inflorescences with the pedicels (individual flower stalks) arising at a common point, like an umbrella. Compound umbels have secondary umbellets arising from the the primary rays.
  • Leaves - Often dissected to compound.
  • Flowers - Generally, five petals and five stamens.
  • Fruits – Mature fruit is a schizocarp that splits into two one-seeded mericarpsEach speciesdiffers in texture and can be ribbed and/or winged, and have stylopodiums of varying sizes to obsolete or nearly so.

Lemme know if you somewhat enjoyed it! :D

Smooth, soulful science. Fuck yeah.

The Black Egret is a species of bird that occupies African, coastal streams, rivers and flats. They use a unique and effective fishing strategy called Canopy Feeding. This is when they cloak their wings around Themselves to shade the water and entice fish into their seemingly safe shade.
