Random useful(?) stuff I've learned

-if ur stabbed with something barbed, u usually cant just pull it out- u have to push it through

-foxglove can cause heart failure, but its also has an ingredient that can prevent heart failure

-u can kill someone if u hit their nose at the right angle

-blackberries turn red if u leave em in the sun

-potatoes turn green and poisonous if u leave em in the sun

-venoms are injected, poisons are ingested- they’re not interchangeable

- there are some animals that exist that are essentially immortal and do not age

- rabbits can scream

- dolphins get high for fun

- if u die of a heart problem, its cardiac. If u die of an air problem, its pulmonary. If its both then its cardiopulmonary

- snakes with puffy cheeks r usually venomous because thats where the venom glands r

- but also smooth-headed snakes can b venomous so just be respectful anyways

- bees can sense the kind of electric synapses that ur brain uses 2 make ur body move

- u can survive any kind of toxin in the world if u can stay alive until it wears off but usually tissue damage or paralysis of the heart an lungs gets u first

- u can literally go into a withdrawal after a breakup bcause ur not getting the level of dopamine u used to get when they were around. U can actually get sick until ur body chemistry balances out again

- I can’t remember the name but there’s a thing that looks like a manatee except it has a dolphin tail and it starts with a D I think it’s a duogong

- Also it looks a little like a bunyip which I think was an Australian mythological creature

- theres actually a creature called a hydra and it’s immortal bcause it can turn itself into a baby and then grow up again. Also it can reproduce asexually when it wants to

- don’t play dead with a black bear bcause it will probably eat u anyways

- if an animal is attacking u and it has small eyes, aim 4 its nose cause its senses have evolved compensate for lack of vision and it’s probably super sensitive there. Like bears, sharks, etc

- if ur with a group in the woods put the strongest person farthest back cause mountain lions go for the slowest and weakest at the back of the herd and either they won’t bother with a strong looking person or that person has the best chance of surviving anyways

- u can’t swallow your own tongue because it’s attached to ur mouth. It can only impair breathing if ur on ure back so if ur buddy is on the ground seizing just roll em on their side and cushion their head, don’t stick shit in their mouth.

-also sometimes people make noises when they seize but its OK their brain is just testin things out same as the rest of their body don’t get freaked

- pink is the only pastel called ‘pink’ instead of 'pale red’ wtf is up with that wheres my Bink Grink and Yink
