Like most squirrels, he starts, jumps, stops, reconsiders, turns around to retreat for a second, nope, changes his mind, heads for me and after a dozen micro-second fits and starts, finally mans up and dashes right between my speeding wheels. I literally saw that little bastard flatten out and haul ass as he flew under my spinning feet. From the first time I saw him to the moment he flew underneath couldn't have been 3 seconds, but he must have changed his mind and direction about 10 times.

I was really worried I'd break his back and end up with some damn half-dead squirrel that needed to be put out of it's misery and nothing do it with other than stomping it. For me, that would be a serious hard thing to do.

He made it. Here's hoping the nut was worth it...

Sorry, no pics.

I always aim right for the little bastards. I figure they're better at avoidance manuevers than I am.

yesterday, I was going to Jersey City and had to take the PATH train at World Trade Center. As I was walking to the station, some woman who was walking in the opposite direction asked the guy she was with "so, like, where is ground zero??". This is a picture of where we were.





right after they passed, I asked my wife "so, like, where is ground zero?" and she pointed to everywhere. And then I asked again, but put my hand right over my eyes.

I didn't see this myself - but found this on twitter - at a Toronto IKEA people noticed there was a monkey in a shearling coat wandering around the store for about an hour

it's possible you are the first human to actually put those words together. Once again, truth is stranger than fiction.

i thought about putting this in the "things that are pissing you off" thread, but this thread more captures how i felt, although it works either way.

wife and i were leaving a restaurant after dinner, as we get into the car another family starts getting into the car next to ours. as soon as we're ready to go, i notice (havent started the car yet), that the family's adorable looking little daughter has toddled right in front of my car.

so my wife and i are sitting there, smiling at the kid and she's smiling back, waiting for her mom to realize that she's gone off, when the mom comes marching up, grabs the kid BY HER HAIR, and drags her by the hair for 8 feet to their SUV.

i had already unbuckled my belt to get out and ask the mom what the fuck was wrong with her, but my wife grabbed me and refused to let me exit the car. if that child someday snaps and stabs you to death you only have yourself to blame. the little girl's screams were wrenching.

Never tried either, but I can imagine that salt coke would be considerably better.
