Sea Gulls are annoying as shiat along the lake in Chicago too. On a bad day they'll come into Wrigley and be even more annoying than the pigeons.

Heading to the Cape tomorrow. Will not feed the seagulls. (Why would I? They're rats with wings.)

plewis: Who the fark intentionally feeds seagulls?


So many people. So goddamned many. I live near the beach in FL, and tourists think it's hilarious to throw cheetos in the air and watch the gulls swarm. You can always tell when an out-of-towner is sitting on the beach, because the area around them is thick with seagulls. It's so entertaining for them! And so frustrating for everyone else.

You can tell people not to do it, but they'll tell you to fark off. Disney World even has signs all over the place, asking people not to feed the birds because it makes them aggressive, but people will feed the birds RIGHT NEXT TO THE SIGNS. The rules don't apply to tourists.

Mormons. There is a highway rest stop about 45 minutes outside of Spokane, WA. After church lets out on Sunday, the Mormons will load up their mini vans and drive there just to feed the seagulls hanging around. Farking birds crap everywhere and these people just laugh it off.

/If you want to get a Mormons blood boiling, flick alka-seltzer or cigarette butts up for the gulls.

 The tourists just want to leave the locals with some thing that says, 'Fark you for the other 50 weeks of the year, ya short-changin' knobs.'

Old people.

I will go to my grave wondering what it up with the symbiotic relationship in this town between old people and pigeons. Maybe it's because their over-55 communities don't allow pets, the way they used to have when they were younger. But something seems to happen to your brain when you hit seventy in this town, where pigeons go from flying rats ruining your car to adorable little precious sweeties just looking for num-nums.

In my previous neighborhood, I used to walk past the apartment of an elderly woman who would regularly dump an entire LOAF of bread on her front yard. Not even breadcrumbs - we're talking SLICES. You'd walk past her home and it would look like a picnic. Another time, I was passing a 15-story 55+ community and was almost knocked senseless by a stale torpedo roll that some two-hundred year old woman was pitching out of an eleventh story window. And in front of the assisted-living community on the main drag, the strip of lawn usually had a riot of birds about eight feet across right in front of one of the park benches - scratching and squawking and fighting each other for the fistful of seed that one granny was tossing out.

The wildlife of the city grew aggressive and plentiful over a number of years - pedestrians and tourists were being dive-bombed by gulls in the town square, hot dog carts couldn't do business, forget patio dining. Finally, the city passed an ordinance about ten years ago outlawing feeding the birds. Not declaring open season or anything - just stop encouraging them. The law was also toothless - there was no penalty attached.

The senior community FREAKED. You would have thought the town council was sending death squads into the streets to strangle every living thing with their bare hands. A few flag-wavers started screaming "Freedom." Some idiot in a moth-eaten eagle costume walked up and down the main street throwing birdseed everywhere as a protest. Meanwhile, pigeons and gulls continued to do about three million dollars' in damage to building facades and outdoor sculptures a year. Because, somehow, when you hit seventy, a pigeon becomes adorable.

The "Alka-Seltzer kills seagulls" thing is a myth. I don't care if your friend totally did this when he was in the navy, or your cousin swears he used to do this on family vacations.

Birds are extremely capable of barfing. That's how they feed their young. they will have no problem in getting rid of the excess gas.

Gunny Highway: I think I am the only person in the world that likes sea gulls.


You and me, Gunny.
My buddies and I go for a couple weeks of surf fishing on Chappaquiddick every spring, and we often comment on how good a job the gulls do at keeping the beach pristine.
When we clean the bluefish on the beach , the gulls hang around, but they usually won't get within about 15' of us. We toss the carcasses into the surf, to sorta disassociate the fish from us. I don't know if it works, but I've yet to have one of the little farkers thank us.

Hey, here's an idea that'll solve the problem:

Instead of feeding the gull, how about you throw on a shorty wetsuit and go surfing off Chatham?

FTA: "The oldest known Herring Gull in the wild was of a banded bird found dead on the Vineyard, 5 years ago, that had spent over 36 years staying alive."

I approve of this optimistic method of age expression.

I don't feed them but I do happen to like seagulls. They are actually beautiful in flight, and their wings are a design above most others in the world.

CSB
When I was younger I had been going to the same beach for a stretch of nearly 45 days straight. A particular bunch of gulls clearly had claimed that section as 'theirs' and the others stayed back a respectful distance. There were 2 in particular that became comfortable with my presence (I was there for sometimes 13+ hours) and I was able to (gently, slowly) scratch the top of their heads as they would sit right next to me. Looking at these two birds I began to see how amazing they are. 'Purpose built' to fly or float and live on the water. They were big, too. Two of the biggest I had ever seen. I watched them sail/hover for lengths of time that seemed impossible, but they can adapt their wings in such minute detail it puts an aviation engineer to shame. We can never match their efficiency and purity of design. Later that year i found out (from a park ranger there) that those two were mates, the one with the nearly black tail was the male, who died. And the female, the nearly all white one, quite literally died at its side unwilling to abandon him. That really ate at me, got to me. I had no idea they mated for life. I remember asking the ranger "why didnt someone do something?" and he said its just not right to mess with them and "besides, you could have put fish right at her beak and she wouldnt have touched it"
/CSB

Gulls are special to me, I know I am never too far from the water when I see them. I love the water, specifically the ocean.
If you do too you understand, I don't need to explain it to you. If I need to explain it to you, you will never truly understand.

No, that's sick, mean, and twisted. So, feeding a dog or cat would also be funny to you?
