Those wee things that come off trees, float in the air and then get in your eye (protest thread)

I can’t stand them, we should get rid of them. I’ve one in my eye for over 30 minutes now.

Chill out, Attenborough

Birds?

Caterpillars?

think they’re called leaves lol

I’ve kind of lost the intuitive sense of English spelling with certain words and sounds after all these years in Sweden.

In particular with single/double consonants. In Swedish the double consonant means the preceding vowel sound is short and a single consonant means the preceding vowel sound is long. Weird cognitive dissonance when looking at a word like ‘caterpillar’

You mean birds?

yes

I’m not entirely sure what they are, I think that they’re too big to be pollen.

It’s basically tree spunk.

Useless flappy twats.

Had one in my hair the other day so I agree, get rid of 'em

It’s finally out by the way but I’m just about to go out to get lunch and I bet I get another in there.

I said birds too
