Seems he randomly turns the kitchen or bedroom lights on randomly and then people hear laughing when they go to turn it off

My late cat definitely likes to hang out with me. Sometimes I see him on top of things in my house, or he will rub up against my leg when I’m not looking.

Wow....
I hope that these stories don't upset you. It's a very delicate subject for some.

That would be cool, but make sure to put a Trigger Warning (TW)!

Well since were talking about ghosts now at my old school my librarian randomly died at the school day. And my mom was in the PTA so sometimes we stayed late after school and one time she asked me to pick something up from the library and I was already creeped out because the lights were off in there and my school was an old hospital. So I went in there and then as I grabbed the papers from the printer and three books fell off the table randomly and I can’t tell you how fast I ran out of there and never went back lol. Maybe I should get an ouija board and go back. I’ll record it “Trying to contact my dead librarian gone wrong, she showed up “

I guess this is a place for random thoughts? Here's my random thought: I have a sudden burst of motivation to learn French. Do any of you guys speak other languages?
I do, I am learning japanese, sign language (my sister is hard of hearing, which is really hard because of the masks, she can't lip read people) and of course fish language!

I’m switching one of my oldest and favorite swords to emersed growth. I’m gonna grow it in my dart frog vivarium so it has a chance to do both parts of its life cycle, aquatic and terrestrial.

Nice! Is it possible to grow aquatic plants in a medium such as sphagnum moss and keep it moist constantly and have success? I was going to try this with dwarf sag. I could just do a tray with the roots in substrate and the lower parts of the stem submerged and the rest emersed...

Today I learned how to turn on alerts for a sub forum so how I get alerts when a new thread pops up in the subforums that I watch.

It is for some. I have Java fern, bolbitis, anubias, and crypts growing on sphagnum right now and they’re doing great. I think for a sword, a better option would be to simply grow it in a pot with some sand or planted tank substrate and no drainage hole. That’s how I grow mine. Never let it dry out, and it’ll do great. Make sure that it’s always “muddy” or soggy in the pot.

Which method would work best for Dwarf Sag? I would assume the sword one since that is what it most resembles IMO

Yes, I would do dwarf sag with the sword method. I would go with the tray like you mentioned, and it would work great. You just gave me an idea to try dwarf sag as a vivarium carpet! That would look so cool!

Do you think it would work with a bit of water in it? I was going to do dirt, sand small layer of water, air.

I think that the water would be necessary for proper humidity. Dwarf sag has thin leaves, and as such it would get brown tips easily from lack of humidity.

Would a daily spray keep the leaves wet enough?

Once established, yes, but for the first few months of new growth I would keep the small layer of water.

Will do since it will be transferring from submersed growth to emersed.

I blame things like that on the masks that we have to wear...

I am typically outside and a couple hundred yards away from people at work so i usually don't have a mask on there. However, i do have a tendency to drink too much coffee.

If I was gender-fluid I would celebrate all of those because more excuses to party.
