毬藻 its alive! this marimo is about 6 years old.
The bottom of Lake Akan in Hokkaido Japan is inhabited by miraculously spherical rare algae called “marimo.” In 1921 they were declared a “Japanese Natural Treasure” and the public’s interest in Marimo was stirred. Many Japanese have Marimo as pets in their homes and offices. They are beautifully soft and smooth like velvet and are very easy to care for.
Marimo are happiest when they are in filtered water.
Just change their water once a week.
Marimo like baths!
Sometimes you will see cloudy bits of filth clinging to the Marimo. Simply run the marimo under the kitchen sink and he will be clean and very thankful.
Marimo can thrive wonderfully in artificial light but they do NOT like direct sun light.
When you receive your Marimo it will probably float for a while on the surface, this is the Marimo’s natural way of getting lots of light and then once its had enough he will float down to the bottom.
In the waters of lake Akan the Marimo bounce around in the lakes current and the current helps them grow into their nice spherical shape so they like to be poked, and moved around. This also helps them get even lighting. its perfectly safe to hold Marimo. Marimo are great pets for children.
Marimo grow 5mm a year and live to be over 100!
Look no further, the Marimo i care for are the greenest and healthiest.
no chemicals are used in their aquarium.

REAL LIFE TRIBBLES
These are also in Iceland, but here they’re called Kúluskítur which literally means Ball-muck, Ball-dirt or Ball-shit. Not joking. It’s because the fishermen got these stuck in their nets and the “muck” is any weeds that get entangled in their fishing nets.
I’ve held one of those, they’re pretty cool. I don’t think people keep them as pets here though. I’ve only seen them in a nature museum, and apparantly they mainly exist in two lakes in the world, Mývatn in Iceland and then Lake Akan in Japan.

Hannibal season 2. Alana Bloom figures it all out. She breaks Will Graham out of jail, riding a serpent of her own bad ass making. Her high heels are actually semi-automatic weapons. She shoots Hannibal, punches Jack Crawford in the face. The dogs all follow on a rainbow made of their love for Will. The science bff crew waves them off as they all ride into the sunset towards Will Graham’s mental recovery. No food is people. This is my design.
Anyone who thinks Shakespeare is boring apparently missed the greatest stage direction ever written:

why do people say “don’t be a pussy” when talking about weakness more like “don’t be a man’s ego” because you know there isn’t nothing more fragile than that
because “pussy” is the shortened form of the word “pusillanimous”, which means “timid, cowardly”
and not the slang word for the female genital region?
literally no one else knows this. nobody.
The reason no one else knows this is because it’s not true.
It’s fine to call someone or something pusillanimous if they’re acting timid or cowardly, but there’s no etymological connection between the words pusillanimous and pussy*. It’s a false cognate.
