I am unnerved at the idea of a toxic lipstick. Also surprised that the cat did not immediately lick off the applied lipstick.

Hardcore pecking.

Northern Flicker. Several of them visit my backyard everyday. They never seem to peck at anything except the ground. The Hairy and Downy Woodpeckers on the other hand leave their marks all over the deck railing and stairs. Thank god they're too small to carry acorns or my deck might look like those trees in the other item.

Air worm.

Reminded me of Dune. Really creepy.

Just blue skying here, but I am guessing if that one doesn't jump on the hood of a car, the chances of "being dragged"* asymptotically approach zero.

Note the Antifa clown trying to punch the car’s occupants. Because they wouldn’t submit.

Obstructing traffic in this way is an act of aggression, an attempt to dominate, and should be responded to as such. The masked narcissists trying to frustrate and intimidate random drivers – because they can, and because they enjoy it - are not good people. They do not mean well. It isn’t politics or protest. It’s bullying.

WTP

It's not bullying. It's peaceful protest. Just read through the logic on that thread explaining why it is peaceful and that there was not even a threat of harm to the driver. Pay no attention to the fascists, psychopaths, and literally nazis (no, I won't capitalize it) who say otherwise.

That any of these idiots are taken even remotely seriously, that we take seriously anyone else who takes them seriously is simply a long play surrender. And the vast majority of people are good with that. Not necessarily when stated in the way I just stated it, but in practice in reality. And so long as we take any of these people, there supporters, or those who pretend that this situation isn't a real problem seriously, we are in deep, deep shit.

This crap needs to be called out, the supporters of this crap need to be called out by conservative leadership. But it won't happen. It hasn't happened. Not with any serious intent. Only in the failure theater sense.

But does that matter in Portland? Would that matter to a Portland jury? Logic, reason, the law have gone out the window. That anything like this sort of thing happens, happens repeatedly, and happens not just in Portland but all across the country is proof of that.

I notice they didn't peacefully try to obstruct the semi tractor trailer truck, or try to peacefully beat up its driver...

I also like the Abolish the Police crowd howling for the police to drag him from his home and arrest him for assault, then denying they are for abolishing the police when called on it.

That hydrid-driving weenie didn't get any Virtue points for driving a hybrid vehicle either. The sad part is he probably has (or would profess to have) the same political ideology as the bullies - er - peaceful protestors. But he gets no credit for that when he acts (rightfully so) to save his own sorry ass from the bullying. And yet weenies like him still adopt the please eat me last posturing - even though time and again they have seen the mob always comes for you in the end. Always.

This. These assholes really do think they can say and do anything, and get away with it, in spite of all evidence showing them as the aggressors. The only reason the outrage over those two antifa/blm idiots who were killed last year didn't gain much major traction in the media was because the guy who ran them over was one of those B lives who matter more than their lives. Even being BLTQWERTYWTF++ didn't gain them much - they were inconveniently pale compared to the driver of the vehicle.

WTP

Governor DeSantis in FLA just signed legislation that grants qualified immunity to any driver striking a pedestrian deliberately impeding a public highway.

Yes. But more to my point. Why exactly do we need such a law? Laws protecting us from prosecution for defending ourselves? While the right to self defense is not exactly enumerated in the constitution, it is an inalienable right that is only missing, IMNSHO, because the Founding Fathers could not imagine even under the tyranny of their times a government/people tolerating such a thing. Thinking about this further, I would submit that probably just about any government, even ones run by tyrants and despots, understand this. Excepting in the case of tyrants and despots where the tyrant or despot himself choses to violate it or in which the tyrant/despot is intentionally using said thugs for its purpose...which of course, of course, of course would not apply here. Seriously. In what world, what civilized country can random people threaten random people and the law be indifferent? But back to America...so-called...what law was passed, who voted to change our laws such that assault has been effectively legalized? And not just legalized but PROTECTED BY THE LEGAL SYSTEM?

Hell, we even respect that animals have a right to self-defense. We may kill the occasional nuisance alligator or bear or such, but only when the animal first attacks a human. If the human goes out into the wilderness, harasses a bear or alligator or such and gets eaten we don't blame the animal. We get Werner Herzog to make a documentary about what a dumb ass fool the person was. Then as we watch we go to the fridge, crack open another beer, sit back down on the couch and resume our amusement. Where are the conservatives..."conservatives" on this?

A bit OT of the T I raised, but thinking about these "concerns" more broadly, thinking back to a time when "anything goes, man", where are all our I-dare-you-to-throw-me-in-jail-look-how-brave-I-am-defending-free-speech comedians today? Why aren't they out there front-and-center making fun of not just crap like this but this civilization shitstorm in general? Shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker, and tits my ass.

exdemocrat

WTP - keep in mind that the Bill of Rights is not intended to confer rights to us plebs, let alone represent all of such rights. On the contrary, it just identifies a number of (our God-given) rights that the gubmint is not permitted to infringe on. One of those is the right to bear arms - which some might argue would be pretty much a nullity if the gubmint can stop you from using them to defend yourself.

Steve E

On the contrary, it just identifies a number of (our God-given) rights that the gubmint is not permitted to infringe on.

In a godless world people have a hard time understanding that the government is not a higher power. They readily concede that governments can confer and take away rights. It's why we're so screwed.

pst314

While the right to self defense is not exactly enumerated in the constitution, it is an inalienable right that is only missing, IMNSHO, because the Founding Fathers could not imagine even under the tyranny of their times a government/people tolerating such a thing...."

First, I emphatically agree that the Founders did not enumerate the right to self defense because they could not imagine it needed to be spelled out. Furthermore, it is enshrined in English Common Law which the Founders used as a starting basis for our system.

Second, the obvious answer to "Why?" is that mainstream liberalism is now hostile to the right of self defense--at least if the attacked person belongs to a politically disfavored group. Some would contend that I exaggerate when I attribute this madness to mainstream liberalism and that the problem may only be laid at the feet of a small minority of radical leftists. But if that were so then why do such political monsters get elected? Why are there so many of them who are judges and lawyers? Why do "moderate" liberals enthusiastically fund the extreme left NGO's?

Is it time to make a leftists version of the "Attorney Hunting Season Bag Limits" joke?

1. Any person with a valid Washington State hunting license may harvest attorneys.
2. Taking of attorneys with traps or deadfalls is permitted. The use of currency as bait is prohibited.
3. Killing of attorneys with a vehicle is prohibited. If accidentally struck, remove dead attorney to roadside and proceed to nearest car wash.
4. It is unlawful to chase, herd, or harvest attorneys from a snow machine, helicopter, or aircraft.
5. It shall be unlawful to shout "whiplash", "ambulance", or "free Perrier" for the purpose of trapping attorneys.
6. It shall be unlawful to hunt attorneys within 100 yards of BMW dealerships.
7. It shall be unlawful to use cocaine, young boys, $100 bills, prostitutes, or vehicle accidents to attract attorneys.
8. It shall be unlawful to hunt attorneys within 200 yards of courtrooms, law libraries, whorehouses, health spas, gay bars, ambulances, or hospitals.
9. If an attorney is elected to government office, it shall be a felony to hunt, trap, or possess it.
10. Stuffed or mounted attorneys must have a state health department inspection for AIDS, rabies, and vermin.
11. It shall be illegal for a hunter to disguise himself as a reporter, drug dealer, pimp, female legal clerk, sheep, accident victim, bookie, or tax accountant for the purpose of hunting attorneys.

For instance:

2. Taking of leftists with traps or deadfalls is permitted. The use of marijuana as bait is prohibited.
5. It shall be unlawful to shout "microaggression", "misgendering", or "white supremacy" for the purpose of trapping leftists.
7. It shall be unlawful to use meth, young boys, $100 bills, or dead carjackers to attract leftists.
10. Stuffed or mounted leftists must have a state health department inspection for AIDS, rabies, lice, and fleas.

The "Shoelace knot innovation" link points to the page for one particular knot. If you click the Tying button at the top of the page and select Shoelace Knots, you'll see that the site has pages for twenty ways to tie your shoes.

This can be quite useful. I used to have a chronic problem with my shoes coming untied. It was especially annoying when I went walking with friends, and we would always have to stop for me to retie my shoes. I finally got fed up and did some Internet searching for shoelace knots, which led me right to Ian's site.

After browsing the site, I decided to give Ian's Secure Shoelace Knot a try. That solved the problem. I've been using it for three or four years, and it has never come loose on its own. It stays tied until I untie it. I'm so pleased with this that I sent Ian a donation last week to express my gratitude.

The Bill of Rights is seen as a "Bill of Negative Liberties" by Government Supremacists of the Obama mind. They don't like that it limits what the government may do - such as interfere with citizens possessing firearms, limit or restrict free expression of political beliefs, conduct warrantless searches, house troops in private residences, etc.

Oh how all laugh at that last one! It just shows how obsolete the Constitution is.

Imagine housing soldiers in private houses! Why it's preposterous to suggest that the government needs to be restrained from stationing soldiers in houses...hey, wait a minutes!...On second thought, it could be very helpful in keeping tabs on potentially violent insurrectionists, right-leaning bloggers, and Trump supporters. I mean housing soldiers in private homes could be an excellent investment in building safe communities and ensuring domestic tranquility. No?

If you disagree with that idea, you are an unpatriotic conspiracy nut who ought to have troops stationed in your house. For your own protection.

Cats are Number One target for me [and most Australian 'varmint' shooters] when I'm out hunting at night. Foxes are Number Two. I'm always terribly impressed by how much people care for and love their moggies [and also care for Nature], but let their cats roam the countryside killing small animals and birds and then complain when the killers 'develop' lead-poisoning.

but let their cats roam the countryside killing small animals and birds

I saw some articles, years ago, reporting that a study showed that the average British house cat killed an astonishing number of birds each year. I don't know how they figured this out, how reliable the data is, and so on--never bothered to try to track down the original study.

NTSOG

LIVESCIENCE: "In just one day, Australia's millions of cats kill approximately 1.3 million birds, 1.8 million reptiles and over 3.1 million mammals."

That adds up to over 2 billion kills per year: "... a single pet cat kills, on average, about 75 animals each year."

https://www.livescience.com/65915-australia-cats-wildlife-killers.html

A stray domestic cat has taken up residence on my farm - I've seen it several times, but had no chance to shoot it - and I am seeing piles of feathers in and around bush areas where it has caught and eaten native birds. I could trap it and hand it over to the Shire Ranger. It would be taken to a vet [at a cost to ratepayers], who would check for a micro chip and determine if it was domestic or a true feral. If feral it would be put down. If domestic its owners would be contacted and, after paying a small fee/fine, would get it back if they wished. They would take it home and likely let it out to roam again. That's why I shoot them.

Richard Cranium

I seem to remember that Australia has a rather horrible rodent problem (not only rabbits but mice as well). https://www.amusingplanet.com/2019/07/australias-mouse-plagues.html

At least in the US, cats will catch, kill, and eat young rabbits. Of course, you could import barn owls (which you wouldn't because god knows what else they would eat) who appear to eat a mouse every 15 minutes during breeding season. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPXKerSXSwA

Daniel Ream

Australia has a long history of importing foreign species to solve the problems created by the last foreign species they imported.

Squires

At least in the US, cats will catch, kill, and eat young rabbits.

And rats, and mice, which can cause far more damage by contamination than by simply eating. Providing a handful of cats with a bit of food will make sure they hang around even after they’ve killed most of the vermin. The established group of cats will then both keep other cats from moving in on their turf and also cut down on pests migrating in simply by the presence of their scent.

Farm cats are common in the US for a reason.

TimT

Feral cats are a problem but they're here to stay in Australia now. Nature being what it is, new ecosystems including the cats have formed.

Another feral in Australia is the fox - can't remember where I read it but there was a story from WA recently where they'd succeeded in eliminating the fox from an area, and, far from improving the biodiversity of the area, it made it *worse*, because the cats moved in to take advantage of an area where foxes had previously been, well, top dog.

    [E]xperience and common sense don’t stop the many educational idealists from dreaming of a land that allows children to be truly “creative”, unfettered by old-fashioned subject disciplines with their utilitarian exams, unchecked by pernicious, untrusting inspections, free of all those “damaging” reports that seek to put a grade on ability ...

As is well-known, from Scotland to the United States, Finland has been the poster-child for an education system flying in the face of "experience and common sense".

    Demand to learn their secret success was so high that many started charging just to walk through their doors.

They're quick these Finns!

    But since 2013 Finland has moved from A* to C- in the PISA league, and in the last PISA report of 2018, the country has slipped back in every category, and nowhere more so than in the reading gap between boys and girls which is greater now in Finland than in any other PISA country.

Oh, dear.

Never mind.

No doubt that wasn't "real" creativity and progressivism after all.

Full article on the fading love affair with Finnish schools here. It includes some choice quotes from Hannah Arendt, too, from 1954:

    “[C]onservatism, in the sense of conservation, is of the essence of the educational activity, whose task is always to cherish and protect something — the child against the world, the world against the child, the new against the old, the old against the new.”

And

    “The problem of education,” Arendt wrote, “lies in the fact that by its very nature it cannot forgo either authority or tradition, and yet must proceed in a world neither structured by authority nor held together by tradition.”

Via Charles Murray discovers the Wild Animal Initiative:

The wild frontier of animal welfare: "Should humans try harder to protect even wild creatures from predators and disease? Should we care whether they live good lives? Some philosophers and scientists have an unorthodox answer" say yes. "...The suffering of animals from predators, disease, and starvation is truly massive in scale..." (And the human race has a moral duty to eliminate all that suffering.)

The hubristic disconnection from reality is jaw-dropping.

Dr. Chaotica

"...The suffering of animals from predators, disease, and starvation is truly massive in scale..." (And the human race has a moral duty to eliminate all that suffering.)

I'm pretty sure the predators are animals too, so you're not allowed to make them suffer by killing them or preventing them from eating their prey. And starvation may be massive in scale, but any attempt to alleviate it will involve helping the animals eat more other animals, or more plants (which, I assume, also suffer when eaten). As for disease, don't germs suffer when you kill them? This business of eliminating suffering is a lot more complicated that you might think. Assuming that you do think.

pst314

I'm pretty sure the predators are animals too, so you're not allowed to make them suffer by killing them or preventing them from eating their prey.

Among the suggestions were to genetically modify the predators to be herbivores, and to use birth control chemicals to limit how many animals are born so that most of them won't starve. I wonder if the problem with these Deep Thinkers is that they live such cloistered lives or that they just have damaged brains.
