My dog has a solid 100% failure rate at exterminating the squirrels from around his pecan tree, despite a solid 100% attempt rate. And yet they both seem to still end up with plenty of nuts to eat.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

If they only ate nuts and had fun in the tress that would be ok. But the m%&%%ers want to chew on anything and dig and destroy plants and flowers and even balcony woodwork and furniture and take down string lines and dance upside down on windows and whatever you have out there coming back at it with relentless ferocious in your face attitude. You can chase them 24/7, they will always come back always to mess up anything that has nothing to do with their food supply and survival. So death is here to rule the day damn it. I will first try ultrasound warfare. The problem is i dont know for sure this doesnt have side effects to innocent victims.

When cars hit them its sad but its their fault for not respecting a higher object and not taking their time to pass when its safe. They are cute only at a superficial level. They are actually malicious and unethical selfish persistent sobs without any kindness or hint of friendship.

Some people actually hunt and cook them. I have seen YouTube videos of it. I have no idea how they relate to rabbit meat which my grandpa used to hunt (and i was great when cooked with traditional Cretan recipes) and i have no time or desire to try any of these ideas even if it was allowed. I dont want them dead. Just gone to the trees and not anywhere not invited that has nothing to do with their survival. And i hate how fast they multiply so that you have endless more problems ahead. So yes if one can develop a way to tilt the living %^$^G out of them and control their population and make them run to nowhere land that would be enormously glorious and outstandingly tremendous (Trump territory) lol.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

Happy Easter Charlie but "mine" is next week lol. In any case Good Friday was for good acts to other people and squirrels will never go there to do good acts only to mess up the living daylights of everything good and to "crucify" plants and furniture. I would trade some lack of rudeness for weekly supplies of almonds, walnuts, peanuts and cashews if it were possible.

Opportunistic bandits with attitude. Forget about all the cute little videos with offerings of nuts and kind gestures and cute behavior. We are talking about Barbarians here. 100k hz here it comes. I wish someone could design a weapon that only acts occasionally like once per 10 min for 1 min so as to minimize exposure to innocents. Even better one a drone that is charged by solar panels and has as mission to detect bandits and tilt them to extinction of attitude levels after recording bad karma events. AI at work. Scientific society project 1005067. Kind behavior is rewarded with nuts. Positive reinforcement. Rudeness is rewarded with ultrasound hell.

You managed to be called a troll by some nitwit in the ATF politard forum debacle. CONGRATULATIONS!

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

Thanks. Just now read some, but not all, about the dust up (only in the mod forum). But I've much more important things to do with my life, like plant my garden and read good books. The backroom poltard cadres showed their hand in spades would be my guess. I've alluded to them before. That's all I'll say; they are not worth my time.

Moving on, I'll be doing a book burning on mid-summer's night eve. Details forthcoming.

Was this because you just recounted for the 100th time how working in the Bronx in the 1970s gives you a unique perspective on the human condition?

Real answer: Zeno's the most laid back guy there is on this forum and gets called a troll, no small accomplishment.

Other real answer: It was the Xanax, hydrocodone and MJ that was typing, not the real me.

Aside: Cute dog.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

Disrupting alienation is one of my favorite bold dares and always a welcome surprise. That’s the stuff epic is made from.

My child: “does knocking the ant bed with a stick kill the ants”

Me: “probably not, they rebuild their ant nests”

My Child: *knocks the ant bed with a stick* “look how beautiful they are running around”.

Now empathy 101

You: Now imagine if a giant came and pounced at our home roof and we started running out in all directions how beautiful it would look to the giant and how awful losing all our tools and games and favorite things at home and our home as well itself would be. Sure we can rebuild it and get all of it back in a few years...

Your Child (years later): but ants are not exactly sentient at a deep level to understand the despair of the strike and the consequences and all the labor they have to endure to recover, they simply act according to basic rules and it all feels natural to them without frustration. You simply enable them to run from a different sequence point what they like to do 24/7.

You (then): Prove it!

Your Child (then): In the lab this morning we were running some tests on the compounds they release when they sense...We are still trying to establish if the release is associated with a form of pain and suffering that they are consciously aware of.

Your Child (today): Its like Roomba, it doesnt get sad when you throw in the floor all kinds of little dirt and dust, it just does its job.

You: But are you really sure?


Many years later.

Dad: I was wrong to have taught you to be kind and caring and have empathy. The world is a terrible place and you needed to be bad to survive and win.

Kid: No you were not wrong. The victory is in place precisely because of the struggle that comes with caring. It is possible to care and win in style for all complexity. The world is a beautiful enough place to care for and still tough enough to need to be less naive than most idealists. The correct process is not to give up on raising your kids ethically but also teach them how to be efficient and how to survive in a cynical world without ever becoming cynical. You do that with the respect for the truth, science and math and a little game theory lol.
