(although lb for lb cat food might be more expensive than dog food in any case we have 2 cats and so it gets pretty expensive but hey it beats what he was dealing with anyway)

 

At that point seems like you're better off feeding the cat meat/tuna/whatever

An alligator once tried to eat my dog. We managed to escape.

There's a guy at the gem an important part of his identity is his Italian heritage (which I am not even sure I believe) he is always doing faux-Italian pronunciations like "Time to work on the ole bee-chay-pays!"

fair point, but the cost is a wash and then i have to spend time preparing cat meals that would spoil after being out for awhile... love my kitties but i got other stuff to do. besides they go crazy for that venison kibble. 

 

the siamese has some food allergy and it wasn't the main ingredient of the food we were using before it was one of the many fillers or additives or whatever. so it's just a matter of having a more well-prepared, higher-quality, hence more expensive food. well worth it tho, it was basically like waving a magic wand and solved a longstanding issue that for some reason had turned a corner and became an acute problem. we still give em the occasional can of tuna or other treat.

Why does the state of bewilderment make you scratch your head? Physiological or learned response ?? 🤔

Back in olden times you could give a guy a nickname just by doing Mr. + the activity he was known for. (I'm thinking of Mr. Hockey.) Seems like we never make nicknames like that anymore.

There are two kinds of people what are always be like "I got healthiness aforethought just got such a great feeling to me!!!" but nonetheless they always look like they're about to perish of illness: vegands and extreme long distance runners.

Probably because we have things like facebook to connect friend groups now.

What if you were actually the worst player on your hockey team, but your other friends all call you Mr. Hockey because they don't know any other hockey players. Then they start posting on your facebook calling you Mr. Hockey and your teammates see it and wonder "Why are they calling Dave 'Mr. Hockey'? He's pretty bad at it and he only practices 2 nights a week..."

Would be so embarrassing, I don't think society could survive.

I've wondered this about a lot of things. In particular, I wonder how much different our mannerisms are than people who lived before things like TV, and whether the stuff we see characters do is based upon real behavior or vice versa.

I remember reading a book some years back where the author talked about people stopping or falling down when they get shot, and how it's a learned response, rather than the immediate effect of the wound. She also cited reports from a battle against people who'd never seen a gun before, and the person who documented it noted that the people just kept coming despite being shot. In the reports it was attributed to the enemy being possessed savages, but the theory is that it was actually because they'd never been conditioned to believe that shot = down/stopped.

I can't speak to the relative frequency of that occurrence you describe but people in combat  are quite often shot/wounded without even realizing it until well after the fact.
