  1. It opens up a lot of questions of how we value animal life. Severe punishment for this type of animal cruelty would have far reaching ramifications for farming, hunting and pet ownership. It's a little damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don't. That said, they should be keelhauled.
  2. No. Through the air in the tiny and at times crowded cafe filled with unmasked people. Had another friend get it in the Provincetown cluster but that might have been from the big gay orgy.
  3. Delta may give us the herd immunity so many were hoping for last year. Hard to say what the cost will be. A vaccinated cook/waitress in my little town just came down with Delta. She probably serves a few hundred people in a weekend.
  4. Ha! I walked into a hardware store a few years and asked for a bastard file. The kid looked at me like I was insane.
  5. Thanks. The axe I used was an SOB - heavy and short - and I wouldn't want to spend a day with it.
  6. We live in a world where mystery is lost. I can look at something happening across the world as easily as I can look out my kitchen window. It's cool and probably useful, but the downside is that the world becomes a little less fascinating. However, when it comes to the intangible and questions of life, the universe and everything, I find the discussion to be far more interesting and ultimately satisfying than the answer. (Even if that answer is 42 ... which all things considered, is a pretty good answer.) Not sure if I mentioned this before but the reason I fly fish is because of
  7. I'm not a quantum physicist, but I'm using the Copenhagen Interpretation as a way to define my type of contented agnosticism. Put simply, while the box is closed the cat (or God) exists in a superposition of both states and only by opening the box does the cat collapse into one state. Schrödinger argued the opposite but I like a mystery.
  8. The sad part is that I've been WOLC'd but all I got was this lousy t-shirt. Honestly, if I were a "100% bs troll", I'd like to think I'd be better at it. As a long-time agnostic, part-time rosicrucian, unrelenting cynic and aspiring stoic, I may well be long past salvation. Or maybe I just subscribe to the Marxian credo: “I don’t want to belong to any club that would accept me as one of its members.” I tend to take the Schrödinger's Cat approach to God and find the world much more interesting with a closed box. However, it has been said that there are no atheists in foxholes or
  9. I hit "successional" pretty hard, but is there money in it if I use "riparian" and "diversity"?
  10. Kinda hot. Smart. Humble .We agree on more things than I would have thought and I like the fact that she speaks her mind regardless of the political or personal ramifications. She got a raw deal in the primary.
  11. Thought I'd put this here as it seems somewhat relevant. https://www.gothamcanoe.com/taking-over-heaven-with-a-five-pound-axe/
