Yesterday the temperature in Saskatoon reached 39C and it was too hot and then everybody died.

The End.

Welcome to Tucson.

It's still like barely hitting 20C in the UK right now.

Also my desktop died, so while I'll still be around, lurking, it may take me longer to get around to fixing things on this crappy laptop. Fortunately it's only for a week.

how would you know if it actually calculated it or just took a guess?

how far the mighty have fallen

I would have ms-painted that, for old times sake, but for some reason I thought it would be easier to do it in photoshop... so I spent 5 minutes trying to find the right font / stroke width for pi and then i got shot by a laser and died


THE END .... ?

Birds cannot be trusted.  They are not on our side.

I warned everyone.

A single blow to the back of the head, and my perspective is irrevocably changed.

Is this a kind of enlightenment?  But it came not from the cudgel of a well-meaning Buddhist monk, but from a black-winged devil.

The crows are everywhere.  How did I not notice this before?  Every time I leave the house, they're there, shrieking, rasping, lurking, glaring with soulless eyes.  They're almost always in groups of 3 or 4, and seem to have a affinity for parks.  They are intensely territorial, and will scream continuously if they consider me an intruder....which seems to be about half the time.

Now, whenever I hear a crow, or see one, I snap into a heightened level of awareness.  I need to know where they are and what they are doing.  I am beginning to learn their language.  When I walk past a group, I turn to watch them, in case one decides to swoop down on me.

And one did, this morning, in a park far removed from the earlier attack.  As I passed, it started circling at a low altitude, perhaps just warning me off, but maybe looking for an opening to attack.  But I kept turning to face it, maintained eye contact, and it broke off and perched on a lamppost.  If it had actually dove, I would have tried to knock it away.  I don't know what the outcome of that would be, but I think I'd rather take damage to an arm than to my face.

I'm starting to think about maintaining air cover while I walk.  Directly under a tree, I'm likely safe; but a short distance from a tree, or anywhere out in the open, I'm a target.  There really aren't many safe spaces, when you start to think about it.

Yeah, one day you're CRAMMING REMINGTON'S GRAM and then you're clocking in at the 9-5 and then your hair falls out.

This is what happens when you go cold turkey off of fake mustaches.

Crows, it turns out, are the only creatures other than humans to "know what they know".  They do this intentionally, not as some kind of instinct.

Exterminate the brutes.

So it appears some Supervisors/Managers at the Kroger in the town I just moved into bullied (Sexually harassed, mocked, sent illegal porn of the kid variety to in an attempt to incriminate, etc.) an employee to the point of suicide because of their concerns about the Kroger's COVID-19 Restrictions (Lack thereof) and their political beliefs (Read Left-leaning views).

Why do the wildfires always skip Ohio?
