I have no issues with people keeping pet chickens but why are they letting them wander the neighborhood?  If somebody's pet chicken wandered into my yard it wouldn't wander out of it.

My mother lost her last pet chicken when it hopped a fence and tried to make friends with a neighbor's dog.

(Tragedy today as pet chicken was eaten by domesticated wolves. She was delicious.)

The chicken didn't care, it was just as lonely as before.

Free range chicken is yummy!

/Either make a large pen with full cage or quit raising chickens.
//Eagles bouncing off the cage is such a lovely sound.

....Free range snowflakes.... The higher visibility model means you can demand a higher ransom, as no one with common sense would treat their children as mindless drones.

How is a high visibility vest treating children like a mindless drone?  If anything if the kid were mindless drones they wouldn't need the vest because they would stay on the sidewalk, not wander away, and be easily replaceable.  If anything extreme safety measures treat children like precious and special snowflakes.

Heh Heh.
I especially loved it when, in England, they allowed the local town councils to reduce the speed limits from 30mph down to 18mph. All done in the grand scheme of reducing car/pedestrian accidents. The accident rate went up. The pedestrians realized that with the slower speed limit, that they could dart in front of an incoming car at 20 feet away, instead at 40 feet away.
The increase in accidents were mostly pedestrian caused, just as they were at 30mph.

/Coming up next week: More articles from the U.S. where pedestrians crossing at rural intersections gets ticketed because there are no crosswalk lines and the nearest painted lines are 1/2 mile away, which is the one they are expected to use.
//2 intersections 600 apart. One has crosswalk with signal. One does not. Using the marked crosswalk is legal. Using the unmarked is illegal, due to its close proximity to a signal crosswalk.

They just lowered the limits in school zones here (Nova Scotia) from 50kph to 30kph to reduce accidents.  the thing is I don't think there has been a single fatality or even serious injury in a school zone for years. After some backlash they amended the speed limit to only be in place when children are present.

This is brilliant because now at 09:00 people drive 30kph when one would assume the children are in class and it's brightly lit but at 21:00 they drive 50kph when it's possible that children would be traveling to or from the playground or ball fields associated with the school and it's dark out.

Meanwhile I am paying taxes to employ these people.

The speed limit story you're talking about is from New Zealand. I'd expect you to know that considering your username.

Does not compute. Those jackets cost more than a chicken.
