No good worrying. There's nothing that can be done at this late date.
Our civilization is toast, and nothing can bring it back.
All you can do is try to adapt to the new 'normal', and keep on adapting as that is replaced by even weirder stuff.

It's good of you, and for you, to offer encouragement and appreciation.
Doesn't do me any harm, either :)

I learned about the yellow kiskadee bird and their tough nature.

Kiskadees build nests on telephone poles often :)

Life is not about people, and not about you; life is about life.

Slugs are resilient little guys. I was moving pieces of wood and I found this little slug. I had my suspicions that it wasn't actually a slug but instead a large larva of some creepy insect, so I poked it around. Once I had confirmed that it was indeed a slug, I was happy to find that it was still alive, despite my trials! I wish my slug friend well in his slimy adventures.

Most people hate slugs the way many other people hate Donald Trump. Those people all think they are 'nice' people.
They also like to call other people 'haters'.

Slugs probably don't have this problem. Lucky them.

Do people really hate slugs? What a waste of hatred! There are some venomous ones, but the majority are just silly little slimes.

They hate em' because they ruin vegetable gardens. Some red slugs started appearing in my country a few years ago and they're like pests, eating vegetables and they multiply fast. I googled them and found that they're considered an invasive species. They're called Spanish slugs and they arrive in trucks with vegetables. A few of them get out and soon enough you have them everywhere.

Hm, invasive species. Much like a particular intelligent group of primates.

I learned that cleaning your gutters until they are shiny clean isn't just some impractical desire for pleasing aesthetics. Perfectly clean gutters have less restriction to the the flow of water and therefore things flush themselves out instead of staying in your gutter. This allows you to wait longer before having to clean your gutters again.

I learned that crows pull the tails of larger birds to distract them and take their food. Also, they ride on the backs of larger birds of prey. This picture is from a post that explained all that.
