I thought it would delight you to know that ants do have a sort of funeral mound for their dead
yes there is a name for this! necrophoresis is a process with social insects where the bodies are taken to a specific location on the outside of ( or within ) the nest - ants tend to keep them all in the same place, and the way an ant is signaled to be "dead" by its other members is through the release of a chemical called oliec acid
Tumblr media
theres even been a few experiments where live ants were coated in the same chemical and other ants treated the live ants....exactly as though they were dead and tried dragging them into the pile

Babygirl I've created lore for fictional characters that are so complex you wouldn't even comprehend
#*drops an excel file of all the relationships and opnions of characters from the zè comics*#the comics: the green parrot want more money#my brain: clearly because he had to become a dad at like fuckin 20 years old of twins#because his sister ran away from home as a kid and then just dropped the twins on him without any explanation help or communication#leaving him to deal with the emocional labor of that plus two children that he wasnt ready for and had no financial help#it would also explain the personality of still being viewed as lazy/greedy can you fucking imagine???#all of that being dropped on you one day and now you gotta be a dad#the transition into being more responsible would definetely take some time#i know the comics tecnically exist around tge same time as the movies but idc#its much more interesting to see the comics show an younger zè and the movies an older one#also i think it would differenciate while still keeping parallels between his sister and della#like donald is an uncle because either theres kinda this expectation of della coming back#(depends on canon i guess i like to mix stuff. comics and cartoons)#or he really is just babysitting for a while#while José is his kids guardians theres no doubt about that#there is never an implication that he is taking care of zico n zeca for his sister#there isnt the expectation their mom is going to come back or anything#yeah#i think this way the characters 1. make more sense#2. arent literal brazilian copy paste characters of the other duck comics#petiton to make zé be called dad cause yeah#idk where i was going with this#but yeah#jo.speaks#cursing tw#abandonment tw

ya know what, this year sucked so much in so many ways. it was painful, unfair, cruel and difficult, to say the least. the new year won’t magically erase all of the problems and issues we’ve faced in 2020 but i genuinely hope you and your loved ones are able to catch a break. i hope 2021, in whatever ways possible, is kinder to you. i hope healing comes fast and i hope all the heaviness put upon you starts to lessen

okay so, I have a Story about a customer we had tonight
so this guy in a fancy denim cowboy shirt (a jirt, if you will) came in during our dinner rush and ordered two burritos. the girl (T) doing the hot station (beans and rice and meat) was like "okie dokie, what do you want on them?"
this guy goes "I want Everything on the burritos, except the corn, jalapeños, and cheese."
T pauses to check
"You want Everything?"
"Yes, all the meats, and then all the vegetables."
"So you want... the steak, and the chicken, and the white meat chicken, and the ground beef, and the pulled pork, and the tofu?"
"What's tofu?"
"A soybean protein, comes in spongy blocks."
"You had me at protein, put it on!"
T turns to me. "Can we... can we do that?"
I slap on my manager tone of voice. "Sir, each extra scoop is going to be about $2.09-2.59 each, is that okay?"
he reassures us that is fine. I okay the Frankenburrito
T starts making his burritos. with each extra scoop the mound of food gets larger and larger. she is sweating bullets by the time she slides the first burrito to the cold table
so tonight was the first night J the new boy had been working cold. he has zero experience rolling burritos previous to the last two hours
he looks at this thing and goes "Do i.... have to?" o_o
absolutely not
I step up to the table and start piling on lettuce and pico de gallo and guac and onions and cucumbers and olives and cilantro
when I am done I look down at this thing, I look up at this man, and i sigh
Sir, I don't mean to question your life choices, but can I put this in a bowl? there is no way I can roll this.
"No it's fine," he insists. "Just use another tortilla to like, extend them out, and then roll it up."
....
Sir.
"You can do this, it'll be fine!"
so i get another 12" tortilla
like kinda overlap them?
and then sorta?? roll one into the other so it is a literal Tube of Meat
the ends did not fold in there was no Containing this thing
I grabbed another foil wrapper so I could roll this thing into two of them and kinda smash the ends in
I squinted at the customer
"It's great, it's fine!" he says, cheerfully
T hands me the Second Burrito
I do it ALL OVER AGAIN
and then take these two giant lumps to the cashier
the cashier, A, is looking over in horror
"[Kiry], how do I even ring those up???"
it's okay, I've got this
the man requests no chips, so I pack each burrito (which for some scale is about the size of a small puppy each) sideways in a paper bag and put them in a plastic bag for carry out
I ring him up, adding scoop after scoop
$47.20 y'all, for two burritos
A is about to die
"$47.20????"
"that is what you get when you get fuckin Noah's Ark over here!!" I say
I may have been having a stroke by that point
the man laughs and hands over his card np
"Are you okay?" he asks me
I am terrific
"Are you mad at me?"
Sir, this is the most delighted I have been in days. I am going to go on the internet and tell Everyone I Know this story
he is ecstatic. he takes his burritos, wishes us a great night, and leaves
I am unsure what kind of eldrich being is currently unhinging his jaw to devour these burritos since he was wearing a gaiter the whole time, but i wish him well

is what you're asking for really "accountability"?? or is it for a total stranger to self flagellate on social media until you feel satisfied that they've suffered enough for their supposed transgression??
