I hope she likes these kind.


I don't get on that well with my mum and I asked my dad to get her some funny looking cactus instead of some flowers from me for mothers day. Unfortuantely she really liked it though.

I think I'll get her a venus fly trap next year.

I bought a venus fly trap a while ago. I had a good few hours of fun poking my fingers in it, but then when I actually saw it catch a fly and slowly crush it to death I felt bad and had to get rid of it.

Aww man, but they're so useful! Flies suck! How much did it cost? I'd love one.


I'd name it Daphne.
If I like it, It's probably awful.

I can't really remember tbh. It was a really small one though so if I had kept it I dno't think it'd have been much good at it's job, half the flies ended up escaping anyway. And if they didn't escape I'd force the leaves open and free them :lol:

...and now I really want a venus fly trap.

I'm going to end up creating some sort of living room jungle, I just know it!

You can also get those long tubey ones that they crawl into and get suffocated!

I used to have a venus fly trap, they prefer rain water. Had to leave it with an ex in Brum when I went back to the fens for summer holidays to work and he let it die - probably too much for it being in a room of stoners. They're cool.

Was in Homebase tonight and they had some for sale (next to the plants that they are selling for mothers day :o)....They were only little ones and I can't remember the exact price, but I don't think that they were more than a fiver

I thought 'Super Big Gulp' at 7-11 was a cup of whatever you wanted (like Subway) - 'coz if it was then 44oz of Coca Cola has a LOT more than that!

EDIT: Just found that Super Big Gulp is actually 24oz not 44oz, so that amount of sugar probably is right. Either way - a quick route to diabetes drive!

EDITEDIT: Just read somewhere else that Super Big is actually 44oz.. (2.2 pints)... but they do one called the Double Gulp that's 64 fucking ounces! 3.2 pints of cola! What the actual....

Yes...and whoever had drank it would probably have developed diabetes, just from that one drink.
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!
