Fun fact of the day: Japanese deer like to shriek at each other in high pitched bloodcurdling child screams. I’ve heard it has to do with mating?
I’d always dimly assumed maybe US deer shriek too, but I never noticed it? However recently I checked with both internet and mom (the two main fact-checking apparatuses) and it turns out they don’t.
Do your deer shriek? Please let me know.

The Internet Archive has temporarily suspended all waitlists, allowing you to immediately check out any of the 1.4 million books currently in our lending library. Until June 30th or the end of the US national emergency (whichever comes later), every borrowable book will be immediately accessible by anyone—creating, in effect, a National Emergency Library.
#fedikitchen Making chijimi pancakes with leftover flour and kimchi using this recipe:
Good stuff, lots of volume. I think you could just sub a cup of other veg if no kimchi. Plus, there’s an option for vegan batter!
