If it was legal, I’d shoot’em all dead with a double barrel from my window every morning.   

Yee haw.

I'm out in South Padre Island, Texas with a little dog and some huge pelicans and some weird loud seagulls. These are not like the seagulls back home. These are worse.



I took this picture the other day and the ****ing birds. Pelicans everywhere and they swoop down and scare the dog and you know one of those guys could swallow the dog in a second.

This is a good photo to test for banding and dithering on monitors.

Don't birds eat bugs?  Sounds like you should be thankful rather than curse them :(

Most birds eat either bugs or seeds but not both. Problem is, cicadas are as big as the last joint - or 2 - of your thumb, so you basically have to be the size of a duck to choke one down.
What this shows is that the Republican Party knows, deep down somewhere, that even before Trump they had less than a policy agenda. All they’ve had for the past decade or so is strategy and tactics to suppress the vote, either through extreme gerrymandering or State-level laws. More often than not, as we’re seeing, through both. Without a stated party platform they are left with nothing but the insanity of The Power Grab and The Big Lie. The Party as a whole has, for some twisted logical reason, decided that America no longer needs Democracy. That in the bent and tortured reality Republicans have created for themselves America was never a Democracy, the Founders never intended for the country’s politics or social order to change, that the country’s democratic features would always only extend to wealthy White Christian property owners. They’ve also, collectively, decided that threatening major, multi-billion dollar corporations that employ tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of people worldwide will somehow, for some reason, cower in the corner when State politicians decide to take a few million in subsidies off the table. When faced with hundreds of millions, or even billions, in lost business because The People are voting with their wallet, I know where I’d position my company, and it’s not at the dinner table with Mitch McConnell and his wife.

Tp4 ate some bugz in Thailand, the bigger ones tastes somewhat like crab-meat. 

They're ok, but most of it is deepfried, so just about anything is good after you depfri

I miss playing outside in the 7:30pm sunset listening to the cicadas as my parents chatted with the neighbors. Mom made a Greek salad and gazpacho, we'll light some citronella candles and eat on the deck as the distant scent of grilled meat and laughter of someone down the block having a party carries on the wind. If I'm good maybe dad'll give me a dollar for the ice cream guy and I can beat that Genesis game before we gotta take it back to Blockbuster tomorrow.

I have a gang of these ****s living in my backyard. They sit there and scream all morning. So soothing.
