  1. “Civilization stops at the water line. After that, we all enter the food chain, and not always right at the top.”

  3. This is like when we tried to cover a spider with a glass and scoop him out alive but his legs spanned wider than the pint glass and one got ripped off in the process.

  5. I could have gone all day without the spider and the worm thingy.

  7. Oh, and Doug, that food chain video even creeped me just a bit, too.

    My new laser is good for zapping spiders and other critters if they don’t move too fast. I’m looking for a cheap folding stock to mount it on for future use. . .

  8. Any idea where that was? Looks like it might have been Ft. Lewis.

  9. Wasn’t there an episode of Seinfeld where George hit a squirrel, and his girlfriend forced him to pay to nurse it back to health. They finally released the squirrel back into the wild, only to have it immediately snatched by a hawk or an owl.

  10. It’s all a matter of perspective. If his goal had been to feed the bird, he would be happy. I have noticed that most people assign a hierarchy of kinship with the animal world, and relate easily with other mammals (Esp. fellow predators- go figure) but not so much with the cold blooded creatures. By the time we work our way down to invertebrates, all empathy is gone. Some people feel sorry for the fish, nobody mourns the worm.

  11. I love to point this type of stuff out to my proggy friends and relatives. Watching them squirm, knowing somewhere deep inside their malfunctioning cortex that I’m right about food and hunting, gives me a warm fuzzy.

  12. A guy and his wife were driving down the road one night when they hit a skunk. It didn’t kill it, just knocked it out. The wife screamed, “Stop, stop! It’s still alive! we must help it!”

    So the guy pulls over and goes and picks up the skunk and is about to put it in the trunk when the wife screams, “No, no! It’s cold back there! He could freeze to death!”

    So he hands the unconsious skunk to his wife and says, “Okay, just hold him in your lap till we get to the vet’s office.”

    Wife: “Ewwwww! But what about the smell?”

    Husband: “Well, just pinch his little nose.”
