Karnid in Wind Waker style. Inspired by the SERIOUSLY cute “Legend of Equius” posts that keep popping up on my dash. Check them out. Seriously.

For every person to join the Trek fandom, there comes a time at which they are introduced to the Star Trek Unicorn Dog.
It’s never too late.
I dreamt I worked in a factory and we spent time unloading things from large trucks that managed to squeeze into the horrendously small garage. Things didn’t seem to want to recharge in the equipment we were using, so I went outside for a moment to lush green hills and… mud? Then it seemed there was a balloon in a tree… Two men grab it and set it on the ground gently but somewhere in between the air and the ground it turned into a large shaggy white dog. I met a girl then with droopy eyes who noticed I was walking barefoot. She said to me “You’re not actually dirty, are you?” and explained to me “tegsda”? which is the best approximation for the word she gave me. She told me it meant she had a compulsion to be horribly and wholly dirty. She showed me her mud and quicksand pit which I managed to get stuck in twice. The last time… It didn’t seem I was getting out. There were apparently layers below that and she knew about them… nonsensical words to these layers as I slipped further and further down…. I could hear her, I could get the little bit of air in the tunnel as I kept slipping through those layers…
But when I finally stopped, she gave a little laugh and decided I was too far down to dig back up.
That was the part of my dream where even my dream became dark and my body refused to have me continue breathing. It’s been a while since that happened. I woke up with a start, empty of air and managed to cough it back into myself.
It’s been a while since one of those.

An Inside Look at Pitcher Plants
A pitcher plant’s work seems simple: their tube-shaped leaves catch and hold rainwater, which drowns the ants, beetles, and flies that stumble in. But the rainwater inside a pitcher plant is not just a malevolent dunking pool. It also hosts a complex system of aquatic life, including wriggling mosquito, flesh fly, and midge larvae; mites; rotifers; copepods; nematodes; and multicellular algae. These tiny organisms are crucial to the pitcher plant’s ability to process food. They create what scientists call a ‘processing chain’: when a bug drowns in the pitcher’s rainwater, midge larvae swim up and shred it to smaller pieces, bacteria eat the shredded pieces, rotifers eat the bacteria, and the pitcher plant absorbs the rotifers’ waste. But that’s not the whole story. Fly larvae are also eating the rotifers, midge larvae, and each other, and everybody eats bacteria. It’s a complex food web that shifts on the order of seconds.
