PSA - PLEASE READ AND SPREAD HE WORD!!!

IF YOU SEE THIS PLANT AT ALL, DO NOT TOUCH IT!!!

Giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) is an invasive herb in the carrot family which was originally brought to North America from Asia and has since become established in the New England, Mid-Atlantic, and Northwest regions of the United States. Giant hogweed grows along streams and rivers and in fields, forests, yards and roadsides, and a giant hogweed plant can reach 14 feet or more in height with compound leaves up to 5 feet in width.

Giant Hogweed sap contains toxic chemicals known as Furanocoumarins. When these chemicals come into contact with the skin and are exposed to sunlight, they cause a condition called Phytophotodermatitis, a reddening of the skin often followed by severe blistering and burns. These injuries can last for several months, and even after they have subsided the affected areas of skin can remain sensitive to light for years. Furanocoumarins are also carcinogenic and teratogenic, meaning they can cause cancer and birth defects. The sap can also cause temporary (or even permanent) blindness if introduced into the eyes.

If someone comes into physical contact with Giant Hogweed, the following steps should be taken:
  • Wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and COLD water as soon as possible.
  • Keep the exposed area away from sunlight for 48 hours.
  • If Hogweed sap gets into the eyes, rinse them with water and wear sunglasses.
  • See a doctor if any sign of reaction sets in.
If a reaction occurs, the early application of topical steroids may lessen the severity of the reaction and ease the discomfort. The affected area of skin may remain sensitive to sunlight for a few years, so applying sun block and keeping the affected area shielded from the sun whenever possible are sensible precautions
PLEASE, DO NOT JUST READ AND SCROLL! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AND POTENTIALLY LIFE-SAVING INFORMATION!!!

Extra note: if you live in Oregon, New Jersey, Michigan or New York and see one of these, call your state’s department of agriculture to report it, and trained professionals will come kill it before it can produce seeds and spread.

Frankly, if you see one in general, probably call your DOA and see if there’s a program in place.

Do not burn it, because the smoke will give you the same reaction.

If for some ungodly reason there isn’t a professional who can handle it for you (and please, please use a professional), the DOA of New York has [this guide] for how to deal with it yourself.

OH MY F*** I HAVE THESE IN MY BACKYARD.

I’ve always found that these panels have a bunch of gutting subtle things going on. 

In the first one you’ve got Sollux doing the confused/awkward arms while Aradia-bot is giving him this heartfelt hug. He still doesn’t understand what she’s talking about. The two of them are so accustomed to being snarky with one another that he played off her grim messages with his typical attitude until she mentions that she’s not just peacing for a brief walk (or float, however being a robot works), she’s leaving—which prompts him to “wait, what?” her. This is one of the few times in the comic that Sollux stops giving lip and is genuinely concerned about what Aradia’s about to do.

So she let’s go and backs up a few steps and starts sparking like a toaster in a bathtub. Sollux’s arms lift and while his face is turned from us, we can guess he’s probably got a combination of Nepeta’s whoa and Equius’s oh god no going on.He’s also visibly shaking. 

Her robot body bursts. Equius and Nepeta’s arms raise to shield themselves from debris while Sollux’s arms go back down. His stance has widened and his mouth is hanging open, eyebrows lifted. He’s shocked and probably still a little confused, but reality dawns on him by the next page.

He pulls his glasses off, and he’s already crying. Eyes are flashing from stress or shock, or some combination of the two. This is the second time Aradia’s died in front of him—the first at his own optic blasts via Vriska’s mind control, and the second just then. There’s a lot to think about when you unpack his reaction. How his snippy attitude takes a backseat to the moment is pretty telling, in my opinion. 

If you read their chat logs or dialogue later on, you find that Aradia and Sollux are actually incredibly funny. They’re witty. They both tease the heck out of each other. But that heckling isn’t a sign of weakness or thorns in their friendship—it’s a sign of its strength and level of comfort. Everyone knows that you’ve gotta be close buds with someone if you’re cracking jokes and constantly poking their side. Not to mention they have this implied history of a close friendship—or something more. And frankly, whatever quadrant they filled for each other, I love their dynamic. 

Sollux and Aradia have to be one of my favorite duos in Homestuck, if not my very favorite. They give me feelings.

ok so am I correct in saying that Sollux and Aradia were so close that they developed the same reaction to being pissed off?
