Some Evening Humor: Are The Ornithologists OK?

I don’t know anything about this guy, Stu Royall, or his politics, nor do I care, this simply gave me a good laugh.

20 When you're visiting Maine and hear a loon for the first time it gets your attention. They sound demented.

If you've never heard one, watch A Place in the Sun. When Monty and Liz hang out at the lake, The loons call out. The sound adds to the sense of impending doom.

The neighbor attracts/feeds feral cats and they've either eaten or scared off most of the birds. Nothing like living out in the country only to have some retard try to bring the urban living along.

26 Willowed from the cocktail thread...

I actually have a cocktail to offer. And it actually doesn't have bourbon!

Sweet Tart (tastes like the candy)
1 part Raspberry liqueur (pucker Raspberry schnapps works well)
1 part melon liqueur
1 part triple sec
Pour all of those into a pint sized glass filled with ice. Add OJ to fill. Stir.

Sometimes I add a little cranberry juice and/or club soda. Whatever works for you!

One time, flipping through the pages on my way to the "W"s to look up "wood carvings" for a phone inquiry, my eye fell directly on the entry "Tits (live)". You'll be relieved to know that they are duty-free.

Yep, they are all just variations of raptors. My mother was traumatized by a shrike as a little girl. Guess she wandered into its little Vlad the Impaler recreation, and there were some still alive baby birds skewered and chirping. But mostly skewered.

We have a variety of owls, falcons and hawks here, I'm amazed at how small some of the falcons are. They look like a regular bird until they dive and grab something. I'm big into photographing birds and birds in flight, yet never have once caught one of them hanging out in my own backyard. I root for them though - they're more interested in the mice and squirrels - as well as the roosting pigeons which are a huge problem.

Too bad I could never get mom to walk outside into the beautiful courtyard to look at any - but at least the other residents enjoyed them.

193 So now that the Left is officially done with women and femininity Hollywood has found it's next "thing". And since all the movies are suddenly hitting now, you know it's been planned for 3-5 years because that's how movies happen.

And what's the thing? *Androgynous blobs of shit*. The new heroes for kids. Genderless beings, to be worshiped, adored and aspired to. Disney has an androgynous blob movie coming and Pixar now has a movie about a young normal seeming girl who one morning turns into a giant "Red Panda". Androgynous because "pandas" all look the fucking same.

I'm guessing the Panda one is more subversive but I imagine the text of the movie will make its meaning ultra clear. Of course the damaging subversion will be couched in a "message" that can't or shouldn't be reasonably argued with.

In the trailer they show her friends rallying round her to explain they "love" and "accept" her even though she says she is now a "freak". Get it????????

One summer I worked as a deckhand on a sportfishing boat. Fishermen would regularly hook into pelicans -- talk about intimidating beaks. While beautiful while flying in formation 6 inches above the water, pelicans are dumber than dirt.

You're lucky you have the choice. My hair hasn't been cut for almost 2 years because masking is still mandatory at hair dressers here in Ontario. This is my protest; if I have to mask to get my hair cut, I'll grow it long.

Someone earlier in the year said the same thing, only he used to have a military-standard haircut, and now he said he looked like the old guy playing the drum in that old "Spirit of '76" painting.

226 Growing up Dad had a pair of barber clippers and marched us (well not really) kids into the basement for buzz cuts. We all looked like early Neil Armstrong in those days. Everybody else did the same thing. Money was tight, people worked for a living.

I paid $15 (delivered) for a pair of chicom clippers a few years ago with a bunch of those comb attachments. It is surprisingly easy to maintain a reasonably decent haircut. They've paid for themselves a gazillion times over.

I always recommend this movie to people. I'd say it's a light comedy, not over-the-top, as you might expect with Steve Martin, Owen Wilson, and Jack Black as the leads (though there is one scene the Steve Martin seemingly can't resist going a bit overboard). It's strangely subdued, and much more about people discovering what's important in their lives.

287 33 Nightjars are kind of sinister looking and sounding, I can understand that name to be honest.

Then how sinister is a Satanic nightjar?

Also Penduline Tits -- I believe common amongst older folk.
