Have you ever met any wild dangerous animal in the nature?

I've been stared down by black bears a few times. I once almost stepped on a rattlesnake in Arizona. Yikes! I've come across bears a few times, mostly black, one grizzly, though it's never seemed all that frightening. We clearly wanted nothing to do with each other. The only time I was more than a little uneasy was seeing a young black bear cub wander into our campsite. Never saw mom, though. Fortunately. I don't know how "dangerous" it was, but a bighorn sheep did try to butt me off a trail once. Yes years ago on a secluded bike path a very big female deer with her young ones in tow was ready to charge me til I put my bike in front of me and it ran off. Was scary. I was eight years old and I was scared out of my wits. Scared the wits out of me. It scared the hell out of me. It scared the daylights out of me. I've come across black bear, but like most animals they want to be left alone and run off. I suppose it may be different if it was a den of cubs though. That I've not experienced personally. Almost bumped into a bear.
Saw it walking ahead of us on a trail.
He looked back at us then climbed up a hill.
I was so scared!

Do you like licking a plate after eating some specific meal?

That's what bread is for, to sop up what is left on the plate. There was a kid in my geoup home, but in a different cottage than mine, that used to lick the plate, whenever he did his punishment was to load the dishwasher and clean the pans the central kitchen sent the food in.
No. That is the part of mine and my dogs relationship that has been carved in stone.
I get the food and he gets to lick the plate.
That is, as long as there is no ketchup. He hates that. No, absolutely not but I cook for myself & I do admit to licking the odd kitchen utensil when it has something tasty on it.
It’s not the greatest idea. Food tends to get in my beard. But if i’m not in public and the food was that good I might every once in a while.
I don't just lick my plate, I bury my face in it and just lap it all up like some kind of wild animal. It's honestly quite fun and some of my friends have even begun to find it entertaining. They enjoy giving me pets and calling me a “good girl" while I get cake smeared all over my face.
I did it when I was young, but my Mother would always backhand me. So eventually and naturally I just got out of the habit. Everyone should lick their plate, especially if you just ate a steak on a metal plate and used a serrated knife very agressively.
Not always, in fact seldom but my husband will lick the plate if it has had gravy on it and his aunt also did it.
Dogs, cats and other animals lick their plates. Most humans have cutlery. Licking your plate is very bad manners and can be quite gross. When the food is very delicious, I don't mind doing it. No. Not since I was 5yrs old, and got slapped away from the table for doing just that.

What pets did you have as a child? Still got them? Would you want that kind again in the future?

I've had my fair share of pets growing up and I would definitely get one if my child wanted one. I had hamsters, ferrets, guinea pigs, fish, cats, dogs, rabbits and farm animals. Where I currently live, I only have my two dogs. I do have rabbits, horses, goats, a donkey and a duck but they're at my cousins farm.

What is the purpose of asking 'movies recommendations' when you would not watch them? What's the purpose of saying 'Allah tumhe hidayat de' as a taunt? Why people say things they don't mean?

OneFinalTime_Maybe’s Profile PhotoAhmed Imran Hashmi
For first one : Ask pe sab questions sirf engage honay ke liye majority awam kerti hai. Baaki jo options pasand ayein aud serious recommended wo log dekh bhe leite i mean if not people i do read through the summary. For second one its a good thing rather than abusing someone. Its better ke Allah apkp hidayat dei and may God bless you tahke they see the other perspective too that way. I mean ending on a good note is a good farewell rather than lashing at eachother like animals.

Do you have any pets?

adamdarlington’s Profile PhotoAdam Darlington
My folks own two cats, the aloof Beatrix and rambunctious Mila, and a very old, very sweet dog named Alfie. I haven't gotten any pets of my own though sadly, since my landlord won't allow any animals in the flat. My partner and I are moving out soon though and we've talked about adopting a dog sometime next year, once we're all settled into our new home!

What do you say to convince someone to buy marble homeware?

Aha well usually the paintings on them gets people’s attention, then I tend to explain the uses of the homeware (that it’s heatproof and cut proof, then give examples of what you can use it for, (chopping board, placemats, to serve food, be used as tiles in kitchens, to place hot utensils on, etc.).
Then stuff kinda goes on from there! Folk tend to gravitate towards their favourite animals and they’ll start telling me about their connection to that animal and such, which I find is often a good sign that they’re interested (plus it makes the conversation more enjoyable too/it’s nice to hear) :)

Let’s practice some gratitude. List 5 things you’re grateful for?

emma_coote1207’s Profile PhotoEmma
I've practiced gratitude already, but I'll relist them 😅
I'm grateful for my husband and everything he's done.
I'm grateful for my animals 🥰 that they're happy and healthy.
I'm happy that I have food to eat, water to drink.
I'm happy that we can afford basic necessities and even more than that.
I'm grateful for my education, for the job that opened a new world for me (helped me to realise what I want to do in the future)
I'm grateful for all the people I've met in my life- the good and the bad. (By bad I mean those, who made my life a hell)

Do you remember your dreams?

nai269549’s Profile Photoʟᴇɪᴀɴ ♕
I’m glad to know I ain’t the only one ! I remember sooooo many of them (very detailed and vivid). I have a few each night (up to 7 different ones) and none of them makes actual sense to me, lol. They’re kinda fun. Some of them are from more than 10 years ago as well. I tried writing them down but it takes too long. Overall I have a pretty good memory, and I remember a lot of my childhood moments (they got confirmed by my dad) starting from when I was around 2. I don’t know why not everyone can remember them though. What I wish is to be able to see them again by recording them or something. There are so many tiny details in my dreams I wish I’d see them again. I have a lot of memories of my early childhood, and sometimes flashes of memories comes to my mind. I usually doubt if it's true or my minds invention, since it's kind of surreal think that I can remember things of when I was 3 or less, but what I do to try to be as closer as I can from what happened is: I start to think about the flash, and those thoughts start to generate other flashes. In my case, I usually can ask others if the thing happened really or not, even that most of the times people forgot the details that I remember (for exemple, I have this memory of going to a circus and seeing a monkey riding a bike and some elephants. I asked my parents and they could vaguely remember we we're a circus like this before animals become forbidden; they didn't remembered the monkey, but my father remembered the elephants). In this scenario, I could believe that my mind was making some pieces to finish the puzzle, the monkey was what I wanted to had happened, but, latter, my mom found a picture of me sitting next to the monkey in the circus, so, what I advice you is to believe in your mind, even that It seems to be fake, cause actually may not. Dreams are a lot of times weird, and sometimes they are incomplete, so, thinking about it, remembering the way you do actually may be a gift! You may remember in the flashes the most important parts, and the parts that you feel like you did actually may be the parts missing but refined with some of the answers that you wouldn't have if you remembered all the dream, because they're only the subconscious working, and in your awake self, it's both, the councious and sub that make you have the puzzle that you're looking for, so is that why it may look off.
I don’t typically wake up feeling like I’ve dreamed either, but then as the day goes on, I’ll start having random flashes or something that’ll trigger a dream and then it’s like deja vu, where I’ll carry that “flash” as far as I can till finally I notice I’ve just started filling in the dots with what I’d like to think happened. So I know that I’m dreaming, I can feel it, and I know they awaken deep feelings and emotions when they flash back through, but I’d really like to put the pieces together better so I can better understand what my subconscious mind is trying to tell me.

If we had ghost animals, which animal would be the scariest to be haunted by and why?

BonjourCaptain’s Profile Photozar
Probably the Potoo bird, they're already pretty hard to spot in the wild due to their camouflage but they also have this song that would make most people shit their pants if they heard it on a dark night in the middle of the woods, so being haunted by one probably wouldn't be much fun. A horny fox also wouldn't be too pleasant since they sound like screaming babies.

What kind of person do you enjoy spending time with?

I prefer conversing with the usually-shy types. Though they're quiet, they are always sitting back listening and keeping their thoughts to themselves. Talking to them is an untapped gold mine of thoughts and information that doesn't get shared very often. I love those kinds of people, and they mostly tend to be very intelligent.
Constantly positive people. I need that good energy.
People who are decisive. I'm not a good decision maker and prefer when someone else makes choices about where to go, what to do, where to eat, etc.
Ones that I can learn from, but then I have learned from all shades, even the ones that most would never want to see or hear from.
Someone I can spend time with without having to fill the silence with conversation. We can each do our own thing and be lazy together. So basically that would be my SO.
People who ask me questions (about me). I am a relatively shy person and usually stay in the background of conversations. Therefore I feel much more integrated when someone shows interest in me.
Generally people with similar interests. But what I most value of someone is if they're genuinelly listening to what you say. Conversations are so fruitful if both sides are cooperative to it, and I could be definitely talking to someone like that for hours. Kind people, people who love animals, but also people who don't like to be around you all the time. I need my me-space.
Honestly I like clingy people. I know most people don't but there's just something about talking to them every single day and having constant attention from that special girl that I just love.
Right now I'm avoiding going to Facebook because there are 3 people, just friends, who sees it as their cue to call or write to me if they see me there. I only go there about once a day because I have family there. I don't even post anything never, ever. But they know I'm there and immediately they are calling or writing. So now I rarely go there. People who are brutally honest, and can take it as well as they give it. Otherwise, they're not honest - they're just bullies.
People who are able to maintain conversation without actively needing to pressure it out of them. Good conversation makes good people and good friends.
Energetic go lucky types. Those people who love life and are geninualy nice. They give me more energy and happiness being around them. Those who make the workplace enjoyable, but are competent enough to get work done when it really needs to be done. Working with slave drivers isn't fun, and it can kill productivity. People eventually get tired of it, they leave, now you have to rehire, and retrain. Either that or everyone ends up being miserable. I normally work and live aboard ships, so having a good dynamic with the crew is extremely important. Working is important, but working non-stop for the sake of working is just plain dumb.

Would you ever be vegan?

askfm’s Profile PhotoASKfm
I could be a dietary vegetarian, but I could never be a true vegan.
I eat meat and animal-based products because they’re affordable . Meat is my main source of protein, dairy products calcium and other nutrients. The A/C unit in my house uses air filters that probably came from a cow.
I would hate to stop eating meat, fish, eggs, and milk, but I could if I wanted to. However, to abstain myself entirely from the usage of animals to my benefit is impossible in this day and age

😊 Do you think people who don't like animals are mean?

when the world wants to worry, that only means the homeless have been forgotten about. instead of worrying about the everyday things in life, we should spend our time taking care of the people we love. our destiny isn’t to worry bc there is so much more to life than worrying. breathe, relax & make yourself a good example so that others will follow your peaceful ways

ทำไมปลาหมึกต้องเรียกว่าปลาหมึก

jaomeuang9788’s Profile Photojaojaiiiii
คำว่าCephalopoda ซึ่งเป็นชื่อชั้นที่ใช้เรียกหมึกมาจากภาษากรีกแปลรวมกันว่า"สัตว์หัว-เท้า" (head-footed animals) เนื่องจากหมึกเป็นสัตว์ที่ไม่มีแขนขา เพียงแต่มีระยางค์ยื่นออกจากจากรอบ ๆ บริเวณปากเรียกว่าหนวด เท่านั้นเอง

2. I'm 6'3
3. I've been around or slightly over 300lbs for over 8 years without any issues

5. I'm good at static strength, not speed.
6. My job is order picking at DHL (trial)
7. When push comes to shove, I proritise food over anything else
8. I am studying on a Project manager course
9. I don't drive but I have passed the theory test
10. "a life lived casually leads to casual results" is definitely a saying that is applicable to me.

12. The only clothes i've ever bought myself came from charity shops
13. I love pop culture, references, quotes, memes, business and philosophy

19. I think self acceptance is wrong. "just be yourself" is not okay. We should strive to be a "better version" of ourselves before attempting to impress anyone. Our world is drowning in mediocrity as a result.
20. I have a bad temper, if i lose my cool, i lose it in a big way. It's a miracle i'm not in prison (narrowly avoided, on several occassions) lol!

Five ways to win your heart?

AdrianaRafaela98’s Profile PhotoAdriianna Rafaella
I've been thinking about this for a few days cause I think it's quite hard to win my heart but I've thought of a few things 🤷🏻‍♀️
✍🏻Be honest with me. I appreciate honesty more than anything.
✍🏻Listen to me. If you can remember the small details about the things I've told you, you get bonus points.
✍🏻Make me laugh. This one is kinda obvious but if I don't fuck with your sense of humour? It's not gonna work.
✍🏻Be understanding of mental health. You don't need to know every single thing about it but if you know how to keep me calm during an anxious situation or even how to comfort me after a panic attack? I will definitely hold a special place in my heart for you.
✍🏻Like animals. If you don't, that's a red flag for me. You should probably also get along with my animals, cause if they don't like you, I'm gonna be wondering why.

You have seen my drawings, anyone got any suggestions on what I can draw next after I finished this one Im already working on?

JoshyHartwell’s Profile PhotoJoshy Berecz
🌷 Yeah, they're all great. I have voted.

I suggest Anime - draw an OC (create your own character). Or you can get inspirations from nature : animals, plants, and landscapes. Or listen to the sound outside, stay in a quiet room or play some music - whichever you like. And then whilst listening, start drawing what you feel or see in your head.

A certain lifestyle that you want to try out 🙂

Supposing that my children have their own families and are living in their own places 👉 I would like to move somewhere out of civilisation, where the beautiful nature is around, just me and man, maybe some home animals like cats or dogs, money would not be problem so we could order meal every day without working, just walking around in the forest and visiting places we would want to 😍 😅 👌

A certain lifestyle that you want to try out

Is murder ever okay? Like in rare, or special circumstances (I.E. Someone is a serial killer, but only kills child molesters.) ?

You’re asking someone who hates humanity as a whole and is tired of their superiority complex over everything else. They kill animals for simply being a nuisance, so why should they get better treatment?
They take from the planet and give nothing back, so why are they so important to keep around?
They claim moral superiority over everything else, and yet their cruelty surpasses even wild dogs disemboweling a deer, so how are they so much better again?
They have managed to mostly remove themselves from the food chain, and thus they are overpopulating and have become like parasites, leeching off of the planet and each other.
In my perfect world, humans would be treated the same as they treat everything else.
If that thought scares you as a human, then you really already know just how bad they are.

Oof, that's a lot. I'll see if I can think of 10.
1. I'm left handed but can write and do many things with my right hand, however can openers occasionally beffudle me.
2. I'm soon-to-be 33.
3. I rarely use my legal name so there are a lot of people that do not actually know my name, which is kind of funny to me.
4. My favourite colour is green, generally darker shades because it's the base colour of nature.
5. I like the moon more than the sun.
6. I also like animals much more than the majority of people.
7. I'm a support worker for vulnerable adults and if you'd told me 10 years ago that it's what I'd be doing with my life, I'd probably have laughed in your face but 7 years of doing this job and I love it. The guys are like family to me.
8. I'd rather swim with sharks than dolphins and actually think dolphins are a bit overrated as far as life experiences go.
9. I can't eat or drink citrusy things or fizzy drinks without medication as I'm very prone to acid reflux and painful hiccups.
10. I'm bi-sexual but not fond of the social media LBGTQ+ community as so much toxicity within it and people like to gatekeep it if you don't fit their standards and I can't be arsed with anyone who does that over anything.
11. I have an unhealthy adoration of Jeff Goldblum, he's just so weirdly wholesome.
12. Even at my age, I struggle to sleep without a stuffed animal, my current sleepy time cuddle buddy is a 3 foot long stuffed shark that I named 'Amity' (if you know, you know).
That's all I got right now but I'm tired.

With you on that one! Why do they need to be ridiculous loud not worth the stress and pain animals go through down to not knowing what they’re, my dog gets anxious at any sound especially thunder and loud bangs he starts shaking at times, think they should at least be silent no need for them to be loud like they are 😩
