    Yep, feeling a lot better. Now I'm just putting myself even more into harm's way by playing with those toys...

    There's something about shooting that just makes it the best stress reliever in the world.

    1) You are not putting yourself in harm's way by exersizing your second ammendment rights. Do not buy into the gun grabbin' mindset.
    2) You are right about the stress relived by shooting. That may explain why the anti gunners are so damned uptight.

    Oh, I'm not buying into the antigun bit. I'm just saying that shooting has the potential to be very dangerous if it's not practiced in the right way.

    Trust me, nothing frightens and angers me more than the notion that I might someday be deprived of my firearms. Guns are my lifeblood, my passion.

    I dont like how little birds hop instead of just walking like big birds (and I dont mean the big yellow bird, I mean parrots and the like).

    That's weird. I was talking about that with my mom last night. Ever notice how almost all birds bob their heads when they walk? IIRC, that's actually because of the way they're built. They actually are not able to walk without bobbing their heads. Personally, I think sparrows hopping around are rather cute. I believe that they are capable of walking, but it's just not efficient for tiny birds like that. BTW, why parrots? I can't remember the last time I saw a parrot walking.
    I enjoy being wrong too much to change my mind.

    Usually the only time I see a parrot using its legs to move is when it goes from side to side on a perch in a cage.

    Sparrows can move a lot faster by hopping than bigger birds can be walking normally.

    I still do not like them - they freak me out. I dont really like birds in general - they look funny, like they are missing hair on top of their heads or something - its just not right.







    (nothing personal about the hair comment TH )

    My cat brings home dead birds on occasion. They look even worse than the live ones.

    I lived with an African Grey for 4 years. He offers to shake hands merely as a pretext to sinking that razor-sharp beak of his into your fingers.

    and that is what is so good about my cats - if they (well, Max, Chloe is too stupid to not like anyone) do not like you, then you know it up front. No lolly-gagging (or *****-footing) around. Birds you never know. They want so badly to "perch" that they will climb on someones hand knowing they wont like it and will bite. And those eyes!!! They have the most beady little eyes - like they are afraid to blink.

    Unicorns

    so i was thinking....Why can't unicorns be real? There are other animals (deer, moose, elk and the like) that have horns. Why can horses not have horn in the center of its head much like a rhino? I wonder if it would be possible to genetically mutate a horses DNA with that of a rhino and create a unicorn offspring?
