I’m happy for the amount of notes this has, it definitely deserves each and every one.
I think human consciousness was a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware. Nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself. We are creatures that should not exist by natural law. We are things that labour under the illusion of having a self, this accretion of sensory experience and feeling, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody when, in fact, everybody’s nobody.
Oobites since its inception was always about things edible. Including this illustration is a stretch, but I like it so much that I created a “Not Food” category for it.
Stinkhorns are such strange looking things. Clathrus crispus is no exception. Though they are such ephemeral things, catching one in full bloom before it quickly rots away (to use carrion-feasting insects to disperse spores) is an alien experience.
In earlier stages of development, the fruiting body is smaller, more compact, and with less color. It is at this stage that I’ve read that some stinkhorns are preserved by pickling for consumption, but I’m very lacking on information in that area.

You cannot buy electronics with food stamps. You cannot buy cigarettes with food stamps. You cannot buy pet food with food stamps. You cannot withdraw money with an EBT card (food stamps).
Do you know what else you can’t buy with food stamps? Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, tinfoil, plastic sandwich bags, toothpaste, cleaning products, tampons, pads, over the counter medications (such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc.), and anything else you can think of that you cannot physically ingest for nutritional purposes.
Do you know what you can buy with food stamps? Food.
Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
And going to “Disneyland, swiping the EBT cards buying the big chicken legs”: while you can buy food with it you cannot even buy what is considered “hot” food with it. EBT users cannot just go into a restaurant and get food on EBT. There are so many limits. EBT isn’t free money it’s a basic way to help families survive.
