Like if you go to a gathering and there's nibbles if you see a bowl of monster munch you're going to wonder who the target audience is.

In 2002 I lived in Norwich I think

the pollen-laden females burrow into the figs and then can't get out so they die and decompose inside it, thus pollinating it. the enzymes in the fig are meant to completely digest it so it's apparently "fine", but i wont hear of it.

I fire up that bad boy when I'm visiting mom with a ice cold ice tea peach.

Oh I almost forgot my favorite game, Kagero 2: Deadly Delusion.

idk what it was with the prawn discos but their flavouring machine must have hosed up regularly because there always used to be the odd bag that had poo poo loads of flavour on them with a load of pure flavour dust dumped in the bottom

YES, IT IS AN INCREDIBLY SIMPLE DISH

NO, IT IS NOT NORMAL TO USE A PEPPERAMI INSTEAD OF MINCED MEAT

YES, THERE IS TOO MUCH SALT IN MY RECIPE

NO, I WON'T STOP SHARING IT

a caterpillar crawled half way up one of my windows at the back and stopped, i was going to brush it off and kill it but i thought he might be turning into a butterfly so i'd leave him him be and i could watch . the beauty of nature

checked this morning and his corpse is currently being devoured by a bunch of green larvae that appear to have burst from his sides.

They're supposed to die in there, their wings break off as they force their way in. You also missed the part where they lay their eggs inside the fig, and then the wingless males mate with the females, chew their way out of the fig and then die, letting the newly fertilised females out to continue the cycle. Nature be wild.

Edit: ok you're accurately talking about the female figs which we go on to eat, I'm on about the male figs.

That "figs having -dissolved- dead wasps inside" knowledge kinda ruined the fruit for me because I'm a big baby that cannot shake the dread of the chance of finding half composed one inside.

They were really good for having wonderful poops, tho.

The wasps are like 2mm long, I dont think youd notice if there was one. Does that make it worse or better?
