I have nothing to apologize for.  I merely stated my opinion that you can't live with predators on your property.

Snake Aversion
« Reply #1562 on: August 03, 2017, 05:15:32 PM »
Hey doomers, do you want to hear a lot of academic mumbo jumbo about why we don't like snakes or spiders much?   

I'm glad you are interested.  ;D The short "answer" is because we are a bunch of monkeys. Also, enjoy the "evolution" word strategically placed here and there to "support" the reasoning.  ;)

Quote

Studies have shown that virtually all monkey species show a fear of snakes in the wild, while most monkeys in captivity do not. However, this does not address the issue of predisposition.

Most humans are not born afraid of snakes, but they are much more likely to become afraid of them than they are to become afraid of most other kinds of animals.

The question is, do other primates show a predisposition toward fearing snakes or spiders?

Don't forget to buy this highly evolved book, even if I think the scientist is trying to make a monkey out of ya!

RE must be a wild monkey :cwmddd:

Of course there is Wildlife.  This is fucking ALASKA!

I would not however share my digs with a Bear.  I would shoot it with a .50 Cal Smith & Wesson.

We got another treat to old posting from the Diner database again tonight.

I find it interesting that these upchucks are almost always from Diners who are no longer active. ???  :icon_scratch:

What's going on with that anyways?  It's just happening automatically?  Is it some kind of bug?

Yeah, any drafts that were never posted will randomly get submitted.

The Doomer from Nantucket
« Reply #1568 on: October 09, 2017, 05:37:46 AM »

There once was a Doomer from Nantucket
Who ordered Mountain House Foods by the Bucket
He had Gold in his Vault
and he quoted John Gault
But when Peak Oil hit there was no Diesel to Truck It

FIRST SNOW 2017!
« Reply #1569 on: October 17, 2017, 11:19:11 AM »
We are currently getting our first snowfall in the Mat Valley for 2017.  This is the earliest it has come in quite a few years by my recollection.  It's still quite light at the moment, I don't know how much accumulation we might get.

Both Spring and Summer here this year were extraordinarily wet with a lot of precipitation.  If this trend holds true through Winter, the Plowboys will have a LOT of work to do this winter!  We had one winter here early on when I first moved here where there were just MOUNTAINS of snow in the parking lots and driving around was like driving through the Grand Canyon.

I am not looking forward to having to clear my uncovered car from snowfall, big pain in the ass.  However, at least once I dispose of the Mazda it is only one car without a roof over its head, not too bad.

Mostly I like the snow better than all the rain.  When I go outside for a smoke, the flakes are easily wiped off and I don't get wet.  With lots of rain i have to gear up for going outside with a rainproof jacket and hat and something over my legs while I sit in my seat on the porch for the smoke.

As annoying as snow can be in terms of getting around every day, it still is very beautiful, especially right at the beginning of Winter before you get totally sick of it.  All that Pure White decorating the landscape really makes it seem like ALASKA!  :icon_sunny:
