Happy Hours: Lee Jackson Beauregard: Oh, I've heard of the controversies. I've also heard of the controversies over global warming, vaccines causing autism, sensitivity to wifi signals, tobacco causing cancer, Morgellon's disease and evolution by natural selection. Many a controversy exists only because a vested interest seeks to obscure the facts.And yet most of the controversies you mention are well-known bullshiat and full of FUD just like Silent Spring.Okay, I'll 'fess up. I never read the book. [stopped reading there]
Happy Hours: Lee Jackson Beauregard: I have read Silent Spring.And that's where you lost me.It's not just that you read it - it's that you include it as a major point in your reply. It's a well meaning book, but it has been widely discredited as mostly bullshiat.
orclover: From a buddy of mines ranch, bout twice the size of the other coyotes we hav pics of, alot greyer and a hellova lot heavier. Im thinking a grey wolf went slumming. What do ya think?
Happy Hours: PC LOAD LETTER: Happy Hours: //also not really sure if bedbugs are actually resistant to DDTBedbugs have been DDT resistant since at least 1948:http://www.panna.org/blog/DDT-for-bedbugsThat's not enough to convince me. I'm not convinced they're not resistant, but that study is apparently 60+ years old.If you can breed a species to be resistant you can breed them to be non-resistant as well.If I had bedbugs and DDT were available, I would try it.
MichiganFTL: I thought they were extinct?
JosephFinn: One of the best successes of the Endangered Species Act and the EPA.
snocone: mike_d85: Saw a bald eagle snatch a squirrel off my driveway once.I almost shiat myself.I feed my chipminks daytime and flying squirrels @ night.Little buggers will search my pockets for peanuts when I am sitting on my front porch.We also have a pair of Cooper's Hawks in the neighborhood.The male took a chipper not a foot from my feet, swung by a tree to smack it, and whoosh he was gone.I can always find the hawk, listen to the crows.
