37 A few years back swans were being encouraged to be on our small lakes because, we were told, they will attack the pooping geese.

They found out that they are only aggressive to the pooping geese if the geese come toward their nest or young.
Otherwise the swans don't care.

They are beautiful out on the water though

Well, lets put in a call to our weather machine operators and have them deposit all of the snow over your house

I probably need to get my blower serviced. The last two winters have been nothingburgers up here in Maine - at least on the coasts. In-land they've been bad but it's been just warm enough by the ocean to make the nor'easters just nasty rain storms.

Also as far as Swans being nasty - my grandparents trained a swan that was living on their creek in Maryland who was old and solitary. His name was Gus and he loved corn. We'd feed him by hand. The problem is when he'd come around for his corn, and you didn't have any, Gus would let you know about it.

119 At first I thought this was a later painting, not from the 1600s. On looking closer I can see the resemblance in technique to Rembrandt and that Dutch period. I like the way he uses light to create the impression of feather details. I like how he takes the idea of the graceful swan and shows the same bird in a violent, active pose. (It's true. Swans can be vicious things and have been known to injure small children.) It's an interesting, well done image. I would think it would appeal to hunters and outdoorsmen.

Upon embiggening, you can see the thin layers of paint, quite flat. I saw that in Robert Bateman paintings: incredible detail with thin coats of oil paint.

120 If there's a swan or a goose, there should be a trail of poop and terrified people who have been attacked for no reason by the vicious, worthless birds.

So this is clearly a work of fiction.

Yup. There's a reason that the TERF ("trans-exclusionary radical feminist") movement exists. And why, if you're a committed feminist, it is the only sensible choice. But they are on the outs. If you're a feminist, you *should* be a TERF because without women as a concept - which is what the trans movement asserts - there is no point to your movement. In fact, your movement lost.

The trans movement is in the process of destroying feminism. And it will probably win. And somehow, feminism's replacement is actually worse than what it is replacing...

She seems to have a sort of u-shaped pattern. She started out fairly conservative, as you can tell in her books. Then when she got tangled with Hollywood and super famous, she started being more and more stupid woke (Hermione was black, Dumbledore was homosexual!). Now she's moving back at least in some areas.

And geese are stupidly aggressive ahoes but supposedly swan are even worse. But while they can bruise you with their wings, they are really quite weak and vulnerable and weigh next to nothing so they are very easy to brush aside or kick around. Which is basically what it takes to make them respect you and keep their distance

If Slow Joe is elected, Fauci will either get with Joe's "Open Everything Back to 2019 Normal" move, or he'll be disappeared. Joe's handlers will want the economy opened-up so they can take credit for an economic boom after TrumpHitler's recession. Under Joe, I believe mask-wearing and social distancing will suddenly become voodoo science, and Wuhan Flu deaths just another risk people need to accept, like the other strains of flu.

355 I think they should stop testing until they get more reliable tests and careful procedures, because its obvious the ones we're using isn't really worth a crap and the testing facilities are at best sketchy.

Never before has a seasonal illness been so broadly and carefully tested. So this would be a wonderful opportunity to gather tons of data on how this stuff spreads, how some people can carry it safely or aren't bothered and why, etc.

But instead we're getting garbage data which results in garbage conclusions. And for what? So Democrats can stop investigations and regain power.

Uncomfortably non-zero odds. The GOP has a very tough Senate map this year. And while Pence could vote to defeat a single defection, the best we could hope for is gridlock. But the Senate doesn't like gridlock. There's be more than just Pierre Delecto defecting.

An even split is a Dem majority.

435 Are geese smarter than ducks? Sometimes you see flocks of geese flying "v" formation over san fernando valley. Many like a college grounds in the west valley. But have never seen a goose in the nearby pacoima wash, which around here is a toxic toilet of filthy fluid and trash and bums. But every year some poor stupid migrating ducks can be seen in the dreck.
Ahhh, nature in the city.

I have no problem with the number of assassins in the movies. That's kind of fun. They're everywhere.

It's the way the world is supposed to work, the coins, the blood oaths, the constant explanation of rules, and then John's rather pointless quest into the desert in the third one. They're so boring for such long stretches.

The first one had a clear view of what it was: revenge porn for a murdered puppy, and it did it well. The second and third are so desperate to build some kind of cinematic universe that I just can't stand 'em.

I always circle back to leaks that our government would collapse if it was all exposed at once and burned down. I believe this more and more over the last 4 years.

I wouldn't call them garbage. It's like when a band releases a debut album and everyone raves about how original they are, can't get enough of them.

A year or so passes, and they release a follow up, and the second album has a lot of the same hooks, same flourishes, same musical themes, and suddenly critics are saying they're tired and unoriginal.

Meanwhile, fans are going to their shows, holding up their lighters, singing along.

Yup. That is why the government will not acknowledge or attempt to rectify what it has become. Everyone, from the common black hats, to the dominant indifferent, to the tiny minority (it probably rounds comfortably to zero) of white hates, knows this. To expose it is to kill it. It is a cancerous husk, and the all know it. The black hats appreciate their power, the indifferent won't endanger their paychecks, and the white hats believe that the edifice of corruption and evil is better than a power vacuum and work to enable it's existence even if they try not to expand it.

We crossed the knee of the curve long ago, probably in the late 70s or early 80s. It's an exponential function and it will only get worse. The collapse that the white hats are warding off and that the indifferent are ignoring will come anyway, and sooner than anyone thinks. Exponents are a bitch.

520 Rutger Hauer was in a ton of terrible, cheesy stuff, then a few really classic roles that showed he was a solid actor with real charisma. Ladyhawke and Blade Runner showed he could be great. Then he did like 82 awful movies just for pay I guess. One stand out for me as a youngster he did was a terrible bodice ripper type film called Flesh and Blood with a young Jennifer Jason Leigh naked through most of it. I don't really remember much else about it but I remember Jennifer.

Schwarzenegger made a lot of crap, too. He did Terminator and Predator, of course, but there were also Raw Deal, Red Heat (where he plays a Russian (????????????)), Commando, which is loved for being complete cheeseball.

Then you get into the 90's and he's turning out stuff like Junior and Jingle All The Way. And Batman And Robin. Off the top of my head the only thing he made in the 90s that was actually good was True Lies (and Last Action Hero, if you like that one).

It's very boring and makes no sense. It was interesting in the first movie that John Wick was an ex-assassin, because that's unusual and what made him a mistake to tangle with. In the sequel (I didn't watch 3 after the dumpster fire that is 2), everyone and their mom is a paid killer. Yawn.

I couldn't stand him until I saw Expendables I and he was glorious in that, great role for him.

But I mean... he did crap like I Come In Peace, every single other role he got was just terrible, including Rocky 3. Until Expendables showed you could make him interesting and effective if written correctly.

I watched the first episode.

You know what's getting me down in all of this? It's not the portrayal. It's the cynicism and nihilism. There's no hope in this stuff anymore-- there's nothing to aspire to-- there's nothing to enjoy. Everyone's secretly corrupt, everything's secretly controlled by Weyland-Yutani type amoral scumbag corporations, everyone has a dark secret, nothing matters, blah blah blah. There are no true friends, everyone backstabs everyone else, innocence and idealism gets immediately crushed.

I'm not saying these things aren't real and don't happen, because they obviously do. I just don't enjoy it as escapism. If I want cruelty and exploitation and hatred and oppression and corruption I'll read the fucking news.
