    Flower Shells are shotgun shells loaded with flower seeds instead of birdshot/buckshot (previously: game-bird seasoning shells). The idea is that instead of taking life from the world, you'll be giving life BACK. Unless you shoot an animal, then it's a wash. The shells will ... / Continue →

    Allegedly the orchid mantis is the first known species of predator to lure prey pretending to be a flower (not hiding in the flower like some spiders do). Apparently they're so convincing they're more likely to be visited by insects than actual flowers. That's something you m... / Continue →

    Looks like vaginas to me. Happy Valentine's Day, I hope you're all having a good great one. And, if it's any consolation to you singles, I love you. Granted not like that, but still. Consider this your card. For those of you who do have a special someone but forgot to get ... / Continue →

    F*** I'm getting good at titles. Wanna blow some shit up? You should seek therapy. I jest, pyrotechnics are a natural part of man's being. Like electronics and trying to put your wiener in everything that isn't nailed down. And some that are. I'm looking at you, birdhouse... / Continue →
