First-World Problems...Part Dziewięć

BUT I DON'T HAVE ANY HUMMINGBIRDS IN MY YARD!

Well, I saw one last fall, but for some cruel reason, probably related to AGW and radiation from power lines and cell towers (that dastardly 5G strikes again!) and the global Jewish conspiracy, they are few and far between.

Yes, it is a tough life, and I see no relief on the horizon.

By the way, anyone know how they taste? I guess you use #12 shot, and probably nothing bigger than a 20 gauge.

34 2 days ago while I sat in the garden in my swim trunks, with a bright flower print, putting together the drip system a hummingbird or 2 came and checked out both left and rights sides of me from about 2 feet.

47 Mrs. Jukin has about 10 Hummingbird feeders and I've planed lots of attraction plants/flowers. We have 30-50 Hummingbirds almost year round. Startle me when they protect their area, very aggressive and they come in the house and can't get out.

Those feeders also attract Orioles. I hear they like the liquid to be colored orange over red but go for red on ours. We go through about a 4 pound bag of sugar every3 weeks.

Posted by: Jukin the Deplorable and Totally Unserious at May 24, 2020 02:35 PM (pw+jk)

48 Two varieties of hummingbirds native to my AO, but close enough to the coast that we only usually see one type. Feeder hanging on the back porch always has plenty of customers.

Most years at one least one pair of western orioles nesting nearby - the idiots always hang on the wire holding the feeder and try to feed (without success). But the males are spectacular - jet black, bright yellow, white flash on the wings.



Posted by: rhomboid at May 24, 2020 02:36 PM (El6T/)

49 Hummingbirds are best served on crackers as hors d'oeuvres... the problem is that you need so many of them.

Rather than a shotgun, I recommend upping the voltage on a standard bug zapper, then concealing it inside a bundle of red artificial flowers (those are known to attract hummers). A few decoys or perhaps even some live "Judas birds" may be helpful here as well.

The advantage of this method is that the bird is captured and cooked in one operation. It's a perfect activity for an evening on the patio with friends, as it provides the entertainment as well as the snacks.

As each bird is zapped, pick it off the zapper with a wooden skewer (no metal here!) and transfer it immediately to a cracker, prepared ahead of time with a bit of cream cheese or other spread of your choice.

Then hand it to whichever guest's turn it happens to be so the guest can crunch it down while it's still piping hot.

Fun for the whole family!

I need to put them up. But they are thin and I really don't want to drill holes. They will be attached to smooth stucco on a covered porch that gets virtually no weather or sun.

64 Regarding the "kerfuffle" of Sullivan hiring a lawyer, a few points to make.

1. Sullivan is not personally ("personal capacity") involved in the writ. The writ was against the District Court. Sullivan is simply the man behind the curtain.

2. Writs of mandamus (aka "mandate") are "emergency appeals" asking a higher court to force (i.e., mandate) the trial court to do or not do something. Usually, the trial court does not respond because it's up to the other party to defend the court's ruling/decision/whatever. The petitions for such writs are usually captioned something like "Party X v. District Court, Party Y, Real Party in Interest". Here, Flynn would be Party X and the United States would be Party Y, the party that really has the interest in the petition. But here, since the United States is essentially on Flynn's side, it obviously isn't defending Sullivan's ruling. That means that the District Court is defending its own ruling.
3. It's rare for trial courts (District Court in federal court, Superior Court or Circuit Court in many states -- basically, the full-service court) to defend their own rulings, but it does happen. Usually it's where the ruling affects the operations of the court or some serious institutional interest of the court. Again, usually handled by the opposing party. When the trial court does defend its ruling, it usually hires an outside lawyer to do the work. Again, it's not the judge hiring the lawyer, it's the court. (There's probably a budget or payment mechanism for this.) There are plenty of good reasons for having someone outside the litigation handle this, plus there are limited resources the court would have to do it.
I'm not defending Sullivan, but what happened is kind of yawn.

67 First (and only) time I ever saw a hummingbird was when I was 10 years old on a road-trip with my Uncle and Aunt to visit my other Aunt at her ranch in Tuscon, Arizona. Mt. Lemmon was seemingly in her backyard.

One of the days of our stay, we drove up the back way of the mountain to some area where there were restaurants and such. Outside the window of where we were sitting were a bunch of bird feeders where hummingbirds gathered around all the time.

It was so cool to see, as a kid who at that point knew nothing more than my area of the south side of Chicago. Seeing mountains and hummingbirds was simply amazing to me.

Great memory.

68 > Could I use rubber cement?

The type known as contact cement would probably work.

If the letters are pretty light weight (as it sounds like they are) I think I'd try hot-melt glue. The advantage of that is that you could take 'em down later by just heating up the number with a heat gun or powerful hair dryer.

One thing you have to be careful of is mildew growing on the inside - that's why you should wash and change the nectar every few days. Their little tongues will swell up and they die a horrible death. Ever since I read about that, I'm very paranoid about my hummingbird feeders.

Silly you... badminton racquets are for Bats.

Speaking of which, had a couple of Bags get in the house through the chimney once. All I had was a piece of broken broom stick. Trying to hit a Bat with a broom stick is akin to trying to hit a knuckle ball with a toothpick. Eventually I did manage to stun/kill the Bats and get them out of the house.

92 90 Anybody else here ever run across "Hummingbird Moths"? I have a hummingbird feeder and lots of hostas in the woods around my home. We do get a couple mated pair of hummingbirds every year but a couple years ago we got our first Hummingbird Moths and I'll tell you it doesn't take much distance to mistake them for hummingbirds going after your flowers. Truly remarkable when you find them.

The theory goes like this: Media is UPSTREAM from politics. And while there's more to it than that, the assumption is that if you are firing at corporate media, you're aiming in the right direction. Whereas, strictly focusing on politicians is, to use the drug industry as an example, like focusing on street dealers only.

Corporate media must be destroyed. Once they are, politicians (and deep staters) will lose much of their power.

As for Sessions, I just think it's personal. And frankly, if Sessions is nominated, I don't think bad words from Trump will cause him to lose.

107 Real problem here -

Water heater was leaking, visibly, from the tank weld near the lower heater element. So I get a new one. Move the old one about five feet over to repair the water damaged gyp board.

Now that it is time to move the new water heater into place I find that the old one no longer leaks. The leak must have calcified.

Should I take the new water heater back for a refund or still use it and put the old one in the work shed so I have hot and cold running water in the shed?

Keep the new one. There are two types of water heaters:

1) Water heaters that are leaking.
2) Water heaters that will leak. Usually at 3 in the morning on a holiday.

Since you've already gotten this far, go ahead and replace the sucker. It'll be one less thing to worry about.

121 And given how chatty ravens are, I think we need to rethink how language works, and where it came from.

Ravens are one of those birds you can clearly see how they are descendants of dinosaurs. So are turkeys and buzzards, and in their own way they seem to have maintained dinosaur like behaviors.

But ravens though... I think, given how well they can speak, we have to consider the possibility that dinosaurs could actually talk, and were the first English speakers on the planet.

Imagine a bunch of raptors, not roaring and growling, but running after prey, saying things like "come here, come here, hello hello, polly wanna crack, er, yer bones."

As I have seen somewhere, a post facto explanation on why 'The Court' did something is probably not going to go over very well.

Also 'The Court' is a building.

The Judge is an individual with government power vested in them. Everything flows down from there. and this Sullivan guy was personally called out, was he not? Flipping back to what SFGoth said, he can use his support organization for assistance, be he himself was called to the carpet.

Sullivan doing what some think he is doing would be like a Brigade Commander being summoned to the Division Commander to explain his actions and sending an attorney instead. I don't think so.

.22 CB long or pellet gun.

If you like hummingbirds in the Rockies you have to do it. We have beautiful varieties here... but there is one, the Rufous, which is not pretty and also territorial and aggressive. They will intimidate all the other hummingbirds away from your feeders, so as soon as you one, ya gotta bust a cap in his ass.

Keep a pellet gun around the corner, and when you see him "dive-bomb" the others, wait for them to fly away and kill him as he feeds.

168 At this point? I patronize establishments that don't require masks and kooky social distancing rules and avoid the ones who do - Fresh Market, Home Depot, Costco, etc.

It's one of the few visible symbols that gives me a clue in my daily game of Who's The Lefty Psycho.

I went to a few shops this past week, looking for some items. Big chain stores. Nobody mentioned masks, and I'd say the ratio was about 60/40 no mask.

My problem is, I don't understand how stores are arranged anymore. I can't find what I'm looking for, wander around for a bit, find somebody who works there, ask about it, and they say "oh sorry, we don't have that."

As much as I hate to say it, Amazon doesn't ever tell me they don't have it, it's always easy to find what I need, and they NEVER ask anybody to wear a mask.

169 Helena.. it's simply gorgeous there! Mountains all around..it will never get much bigger because it butts up against an Indian reservation and Ft. McDowell National Park. That's why I love it. My town I live in now grew from 25,000 when we moved her 1986 to close to 100,000. Too big, too much traffic. Everything has changed so much here I just hate it now. Plus I'm tired of Missouri winters.

170 In other news, just got informed of a plot to shut down the entire government and most businesses for a day to forward the pacifist cause of recognizing all those who have died in warfare since the founding of the country. There will be newspaper publications, and public readings, of the names.

But like the fake flu, it's just another way for government employees to get a free day off. Nobody dies of this disease. There's no reason to be careful.

171 Someone was just lamenting about where have all the hummingbirds gone to. They really hit the feeders in the early spring. Then usually right at dawn and dusk in the summer. Hummingbirds main diet is actually insects. I have all kinds of plants to attract the hummingbirds salvia, firecracker bush, corral honeysuckle, Turks caps, etc. I do put out a small feeder all spring, summer, and fall. Got to change it out every 3 days even if it looks untouched so they don't get sick.

187 >>I think Sullivan is trying to run out the clock betting his patrons will protect him.


The clock runs out 1 week from tomorrow. That's the deadline the 3 judge panel on the Appeals Court gave him Sullivan to respond, personally. Not through amicus briefs or a lawyer, personally.

And it wasn't a request along the lines of "Gee judge, that was an interesting position you took. Can you explain it to us?". It was more like "Are you a fucking moron? What the hell were you thinking and this better be damn good and it better come from you.".

Seems more likely to me that if friends were involved they are telling Sullivan to bite the bullet and end the case. There is no win here for him only the possibility of a little humiliation vs a career altering crazy.

I don't suppose one finds caimans in the Venice canals, as they are obviously only native to the waters around a group of small Caribbean islands.

195 Lots of screeching Karens on the Twatters today,
freaking out over...


The Left is going increasingly nuts over CCP virus, particularly as it seems increasingly likely that the virus is waning with warmer weather, like most respiratory infections. (Expect a lot of SECOND WAVE headlines in October, as the election is coming up.)

The epidemiological geniuses at Imperial College, London have come up with a new study that the Left is seizing on. The study claims that the virus is still spreading uncontrolled in twenty-four states, and that the state where CCP virus is spreading fastest is - Texas.

This seems strange, since 8.9% of new CCP virus cases in Texas occurred in the last week, versus 7.6% nationally. Not much of a difference.

Well, Imperial College is relying on a model and cell-phone data, of course, and those gosh-darn Texans are traveling too much.

This seems to be a fetish among urbanities - that travel, per se, exposes you to the virus. The fact that traveling three miles in New York City exposes you to more risk of catching the virus than traveling three hundred miles in Nebraska doesn't occur to them. The virus hotspots in rural America are associated with things like meatpacking plants, not travel.

Not to worry, there is a big market for fantasies that red-staters will soon be dying en masse, and the media will keep providing those fantasies.

Ravens are also sarcastic smartassed assholes. At least, the ones I used to see in Alaska.

Had one come up on our tent while we were out on a field problem. Started squawking like crazy until we all got out trying to shoo him away. No dice. Then we took to throwing a few snowballs at him. He just watched them go by then turned and looked STRAIGHT AT US and squawked again.

Finally got one perfectly on target... but he just hopped up about 2 feet in the air and plopped back down where he was standing. Squawk! Squawk!
