¡Mira, una ardilla!
There's a couple of football fields near me, then 100ft from them there is a mown parking overflow area almost as big as a football field.
For some reason, moronic dog owners run their dogs on the prepared fields instead of the parking overflow.
I'm sure people playing a contact sport on weekends enjoy sliding face first through bits of smooshed in shit that dog owners were unable to pick up.
Arrrgh, use your fucking brains!
Idiocy is ubiquitous. Down here a bunch of friends got permission to build a BMX track in a new municipal park which had three football fields already built. They busted their asses for six months, threw a lot of money into it, and when it was finally done and they'd had a couple of races in it, the municipality decided to tear it down and build a fourth football field "because people were already using the track to kick ball" and "there are simply not enough football fields in the area".

Not to say the BMX school was using the track regularly (two classes daily in the afternoon) and the other three football fields were mainly used on weekends, and not crowded.

That's really sad, three is not enough football fields, how many BMX tracks are in the area?

What the fuck? You can drink beer, do coke, shoot your husband, shoot yourself and that is considered the prescription med's fault by others? Crazy!
In regards to Phil Hartman/wife's death-

Her brother sued Pfizer for wrongful death, claiming the Zoloft was to blame for her killing Phil and then herself.

'I did file a lawsuit against Pfizer… alleging that the use of Zoloft caused my sister to not to know what she was doing, and she shot her husband.

'And when she came out of that, she shot herself,' he said.

Pfizer settled the lawsuit for $100,000. It is still on the market as a prescription anti-depressant.

Does anyone else's shower now consist of 8 minutes of body cleaning and 22 minutes of just standing there for heat therapy because you are old as fuck?
No, mine is often trying to get fibreglass outta my skin.
There has to be a decent way to get it done.

When I visited my friends in Melbourne several years ago they insisted on the govt. recommended 4 min shower. Fuck that noise. It’s nice to live somewhere where there’s plenty of water and I don’t have to feel bad about my water therapy.
 
Carrying the buckets, intermittently placing them on the ground so as to rest. Sirens, crows, trillium, various invasives; the rain heard, not felt. Wandering on no path, once wandered, chosen route, to where unknown, the heart might lead. What thinks, experiences, the cat? The deer? The porcupine? Each in their own time, their reality, their thought. The bell strikes once, again the sun emerges. Electronic song, imaginary bird. This plant and that, some recognized according to how the human beast categorizes, arranges, describes, imagines, in that isolate while in itself immersed in its living web.

For some reason I started watching COPS.

The double negatives in that show are crazy, I wonder if a good lawyer could use the officer's lack of ability to speak realz good to get an offender off the hook?

So I take every second day off to soak, I'll try to get that approved by the boss, I like it.
Make a batch when you know you're going to be working on insulation. Rinse it off immediately. No soaking. Soft butter works good too. It's just a pain in the ass to rinse off with Cold water. Never shower or wash with hot water is the key. Witch hazel or any other Astringent will work too.

One day when I run the printer troubleshooter I'd really like to see- "Your Epson printer is a piece of shit, throw it out the nearest window!"
Coz I fucking would.

Why are the up and down shifts backwards on every car that has an automatic transmission, with a manual mode?

Forward should be downshift, not upshift. :disgust1:

Outdoor cats maintain our local coyote population. Do you have dingos?

nO oNe WaNtS tO WoRk aNyMoAr1!1!
Nah, no Dingos here.
And our local councils won't bring in any decent laws to force people to keep the little cuntish killers indoors.
Neighbours' cat killed another Marsh snake, didn't eat it, just played with it till it died, cats are such wonderful pets.......

EDIT- I should add that I couldn't bring myself to have a Red Setter, Golden Retriever, Jack Russell or Staffie because a few of the ones I have seen are animal killing A holes and there are cats that don't kill things out of boredom.

I've seen my fare share of bad driving in my life. But what was experienced on I-70 from Vail to Denver was by far the worst display of collective bad driving skills.

Local news had a piece this morning where they were explaining the $250m of improvements being made to Vail Pass to make it safer due to the high number of crashes. Seems like alot of money when just enforcing the speed limit and winter traction laws would assist with that issue greatly.

edit: Also, you should have waved coming down I-70 after Idaho Springs before you dropped into Denver. Wife would have loved to have met your DSO's. :(

Remember when Jared Fogle was on top of the world as the Subway Guy then got busted for kiddie porn and is now incarcerated? Highest of highs, lowest of lows.

Over the last month or so Ebay has really gone to shit, the search results are now almost as useless as Amazon's.
