Out of the Blue

Hurricane Irma Strengthens Into Category 5, and Florida Braces for Possible Landfall is today's bad weather news, as a second hurricane is making its way towards landfall in the Caribbean tomorrow. This giant storm carries even more dire advance warnings than Harvey, and Harvey resulted in at least 60 deaths, so here's hoping they are completely wrong about this one. Unfortunately these forecasts seem to be ever-more accurate, our hopes also turn to the safety of all those in the path.

Weathered Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.

Story: Lego sales hit brick wall, sheds 8% of workforce.
Science: At times during Harvey, the European model outperformed humans.
Media: Massive Landslide On National Highway in India. NSFW.
Superheroes look ridiculous without special effects.
King Joffrey was obviously misunderstood.
Follow-up: Fish attraction to plastic in ocean could be risky. Thanks Slashdot.

Took dog to park. Sign clearly says pets on leash. Some old fat guy walking his dog without a leash... his dog sees my puppy and charges at me. My puppy totally panics and the guy is laughing. WTF ...

My old dog Lucy was tiny and we had an incident with a german shepherd off-leash. She was OK but I had to get involved physically and almost got a bite. After that I started carrying a pet spray in case situations ever escalated. It's legal here but obviously check it out in your area first. Basically pepper spray for dogs, no permanent damage or lasting injuries. Just be careful you don't get the other owner otherwise its potentially an assault charge.

My new dog is pretty big so I don't really worry about it anymore.

Everyone around here walks their dogs off leash in the public parks, it drives me crazy.

I will check the laws here and see what I can carry. I wish I could spray the owner though. It's not the dog's fault that the owner is a complete idiot.
