Out of the Blue

So there's this crow who sits outside my window lately and crows incessantly. On a recent foray into the fresh air I noticed he is actually perched on the very (very) top branch of the evergreen tree by our house, something that doesn't seem suited to his weight, as crows are quite large. It turns out there is another crow on a similarly spindly branch near a neighboring house, and it would seem they are talking to each other, and I can only imagine they are crowing (har) over how annoying they can be now that they've managed to find a spot safe from the million or so cats that roam the neighborhood. You think the neighbors will have me committed if I start building a scarecrow on my roof?

There is a new big ass add on

? You prefered the right side of the page wallpapered with tall ads instead of the new ones that just take up 2 news stories vertically? I think the new ads are great compared to those old monstrosities.

I USED to have 50 or so crows in my yard every morning around 5am and every evening around 5pm. There's 3 ways to go about this without going to jail most of the time.

1. Laser pointer. Freaks them out, makes them go away.

2. The BB Gun is an ok route to go, however, most people's budgets only allow for a modest 350 foot per second pump style gun. As in the first, they go away with a bruise. (as mentioned before in an earlier post, Crows are NASTY.)

3. If the BB gun doesn't work after about a week of bruisin, then you'll have to go and get something a little more powerful. I'm in an area where gun shows are fairly frequent. I picked up a 1300 foot per second spring loaded .22 caliber pellet gun. I dropped 2 crows in a week and they haven't been back....

Make up an ID using a fake e-mail address. I've had one for almost three years, and it still works, and I've almost never had to relog in. It's not that painful.

And just left the scarecrow up after that. They wouldn't think you crazy, just lazy... which is, arguably, not much better, but hey I'll take the advantages where I see 'em. :-)

Its a shame, waste of a talent.

I was wondering if it would be possible to at least put some kind of small summary for those NY Times articles that keep getting posted? I just hate jumping thru friggin hoops to read a news article.


I love to go down to the schoolyard and watch kids run around and scream...

They dont know that I'm only using blanks.

Except when it blasts a hole in your leg when you walk into the house.

I just can't believe that face. Things were screwed up before, but now it's been so damaged that bits of it are dying. I hope he gets some psychiatric treatment soon, he certainly needs it.

When they incorporate a taser frickin' laser beam to take care of any intruders, that's when I'll pick one up. Well, not really, but that would definitely be badass.

The history of MJ's face is a gut buster.

I know money is tight for Mike now, maybe if he sues the butchers that did that to him for gross incompetence he can recoup some of his money.
