I need help giving a snake some oral medication.

The vet was an ER vet and didn't really know what she was talking about. She gave me liquid antibiotics for a respiratory infection in a ball python and didn't really show me how to inject the meds into her mouth, but did show me how to open her mouth (middle of Nebraska aka I don't really have the opportunity to shop around for reptile vets). I tried to get the meds in her mouth with a friend today, but the snake didn't swallow them immediately and took quite a lot of effort for her to get it down.

Does anyone know how to do this properly? How hard should it be for the snake to swallow?

Are there any outside forums that may be able to help me?

I have no idea if there's any help on this board but I was having trouble finding a step by step answer on actual repitle forum websites.

I'm getting kind of bored of GW's lineup and I want to start collecting models from other games. Can anyone suggest a good one to go with? I just want to build/paint the models so the game itself doesn't need to be any good.

Well, this place is fucking dead, but I may as well ask. Anyone here know anything about woodworking? Specifically, how to make wood softer. Because I'm trying to get into wood carving, but all I've got is acacia, which appears to be waterproof, knifeproof and possibly bulletproof. Great if I ever decide to make a boat, but I'm trying to carve shit.

you need ultra sharp chisels and whatnot. if you are a beginner, use softer wood, hard wood is difficult to carve at the best of times.

Well, thanks for the advice, but I kind of figured all of that out on my own in the last two weeks. I have no chissels, but I managed to sharpen my pocked knife enough to shave with it (thought the razor burn's kind of bad), so now it actually stands a chance against the wood. Still can't find anything softer, but I'm actually making progress with the acacia, so I may as well keep going with that. I have a literal pile of that shit, may as well use what I've got.

On a side note, this is a great exercise in concentration, it's almost like meditation, except every time I lose focus I end up cutting myself, because I don't notice a part of the knife's actually going through my finger as well as the wood.

yeah, its a great form of meditation. also, itd be worth your time to invest in a set of chisels and a few blades. id recommend a sheepsfoot style knife, they are good for shaving down the piece, and its harder to stab yourself.

I rarely stab myself, it's mostly cuts. The blade doesn't slip, I just don't notice that the part of it, which isn't on the wood is sticking out to the side and near my fingers. And I've looked into them, it just turns out I have no fucking place to buy a set, since I live in a shithole with no hobby shops or craft shops or whatever. I'd have to buy a set online and I'm not a fan of that, cause the options are "Shady Joe's discount tools, 5$, no pics available, no money back, no description.", some professional shit that costs more than a month of rent and companies that don't even ship to my country.

So, for now, I'm gonna keep going with the knife. It works well enough, I just need practice. And maybe wear a glove on my off hand instead of just the knife hand.

I've been starting to post some of my hobbies on a website I made, things like talking about politics and game design I mean actually talking about game design, like what terminology should be used, what metrics are applicable in what styles, actually discussing design, not just me posting designs and posting game designs ok this one is actually me posting designs I made. .
So I was wondering if anyone would be interested in checking it out, or posting some of their own writings on it?

Not sure if you can make this 3 minutes but-

Child goes missing. Parents freak out and call police and start a search for child. Days go by with no leads. Husband does things that seem very sketchy to wife considering what had just happened. Wife doesn't understand and tells police of actions. They follow dad, and through whatever means, catch him with evidence that is used in court to convict him of murdering the child (or something equally bad). End of video mother is in a new house, she goes to check mail and flips through it finding an insurance check. Camera pans to her as she breaks a smile and devilish look.

Anyone here a cook?

I'm trying to look for some decent honey. The problem is the only honey available is the bland/bitter tasting stuff from supermarkets, or ridiculously expensive honey from health food stores.

I find that organic honey taste better, and manuka honey is fucken delicious, but I have no idea where to get something that tastes good and doesn't cost $150 per kilo.

I freaking love good quality honey

Do what my family did and start raising bees. They're dying rather quickly so you'd be helping the earth as well.

Hello peeps.
Can anyone identify what kind of wood this is ? I intend to use some iron acetate solution, what results can I anticipate?
Thank you in advance.
