Pelicans at Clearwater Beach
I want to post my own local birds, but my camera's photos are too large.
were you getting a 413 error? I had the limit set to 30MB. Just in creased it to 60, so you should be able to upload reasonably large photos.
Why does that pelican look so flat?

Is it legal to shoot iguanas in public areas with a crossbow? I've just been using a standard leatherman knife but my family is asking if I'd want anything for Christmas. I don't really have any hobbies apart from killing iguanas, so I thought a crossbow could make things more efficient. Thoughts?
>Green iguanas are not protected in Florida except by anti-cruelty laws and can be humanely killed on private property year-round with landowner permission.


Just be careful out in public. Depending on the county and their mood, cops may bust your for launching a projectile or something weapon related.

But this is Florida, so if you really want to hunt them...

>Members of the public may also remove and kill iguanas from 22 FWC managed public lands without a license or permit under Executive Order 17-11.


Reading that, it says you're not allowed to use firearms or traps, but you're probably safe with a crossbow.
>I don't really have any hobbies apart from killing iguanas
Consider hunting Burmese pythons and maybe walking catfish. You can earn $8.10 per hour hunting the pythons and then you can eat the catfish.
Do you eat the iguanas?

With the advent of organic chemistry, there now exist many synthetic drugs with similar psychoactive properties, many of which are derived from these plants. Many pure active compounds with psychoactive properties have been isolated from these respective organisms and synthesized chemically. These include the naturally occurring mescaline, psilocybin, DMT, salvinorin A, ibogaine, ergine, and muscimol, the semi-synthetic LSD, and synthetic substances (e.g., DPT used by the Temple of the True Inner Light and 2C-B used by the Sangoma).[3]
The use of psychoactive substances is deeply rooted in human culture and dates back to pre-history. Early societies often incorporated these organisms into their traditions in medicine, spirituality, or recreation, such as the use of soma in the origins of Hinduism, and many of these uses continue into the modern day. Some common examples of this are the use of wine containing Ethanol in Christian communion, and Ayahuasca among indigenous peoples of the Amazon.

>Electric School Bus Project - Initial Phase

>The Department is making $5 million available for an initial phase to replace old diesel school buses with electric school buses. This is the first of many bus projects funded by the Department using Volkswagen Settlement funding. The purpose of this project is to develop best practices for the Mitigation Plan’s School, Transit, and Shuttle Bus Initiative, which is allocated 70 percent, or about $116 million, for funding bus replacement projects. Florida public school districts may use this grant application worksheet to apply for up to 100 percent cost-reimbursement from the Department for the replacement of 2009 or older diesel school buses with new electric battery powered school buses and associated charging infrastructure. Funding will be provided on a first come, first served basis. School districts within an Air Quality Priority Area designated in the Mitigation Plan are eligible for this initial phase. The selected districts are required to competitively identify the businesses to complete the project. Other school districts may apply for future funding opportunities identified in the Mitigation Plan. Interested school districts are to complete and submit the linked application worksheet by November 7, 2019, at 5:00 PM, E.T. To download and complete an application worksheet, please select the following link: Electric School Bus Project - Initial Phase.


Why is DEP wasting money on stupid electric school buses that will end up costing more to maintain in the long run when we desperately need basic transit bus systems throughout the state? The traffic congestion in this state is starting to resemble that of a third-world country, and they can't keep up with maintenance with all the new cars on the road.

I believe nature should be above all

We must step back to move forward. Technology must go hand in hand with naturality, not against it. We as humans are on the path to destroy ourselves with the very systems we built, because of our ignorance, arrogance and greed.

"An emphasis on agriculture and urban regionalism is somewhat disconcerting to the average city dweller. It conjures up an image of cultural isolation and social stagnation, of a journey backward in history to the agrarian societies of the medieval and ancient worlds. Actually, the urban dweller today is more isolated in the big city than his ancestors were in the countryside. The city man in the modern metropolis has reached a degree of anonymity, social atomization, and spiritual isolation that is virtually unprecedented in human history. Today man’s alienation from man is almost absolute. His standards of cooperation, mutual aid, simple human hospitality, and decency have suffered an appalling erosion in the urban milieu. Man’s civic institutions have become cold, impersonal agencies for the manipulation of his destiny, and his culture has increasingly accommodated itself to the least common denominator of intelligence and taste. He has nothing to lose even by a backward glance; indeed, in this way he is likely to place his present-day world and its limitations in a clearer perspective."

What if we could live in space stations?
That would be cool, as long as they were big enough to not feel claustrophobic. Eventually humans will need to escape into space.
