    The visual graphs for food are great but the focus on only CO2 hides a lot of key information. Almond milk looks like the best choice as regards CO2 useage but uses vastly more water than oat milk...

    I've been stung on the eyelids and lips more than once for trying to be chill around wasps so I'm going to walk off if they start hovering around me. I just don't think being perfectly still works :(
