Turning and turning in the widening gyreThe falcon cannot hear the falconer;Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhereThe ceremony of innocence is drowned;The best lack all conviction, while the worstAre full of passionate intensity./sounds about right

While walking around Doha's Souk, I came across its falcon store. Really. They had a store where falcons rested on perches that formed rows along the ground floor. One could also get the various accessories for falcons.

So...an ultra-wealthy oil nation has an entire state-of-the-art hospital dedicated to falconry as a passtime?

Steering wheel covers, custom rims, wiper blades, and fuzzy dice?

Sort of sounds like when the sound wave bounces off a weird bone reflector, and it's just staticy noise and an overgained image. Some people have noisy skulls like that.

I wish someone would create a giant flock of eagles trained to attack, and unleash it on a MAGA rally.

I used to really like that account... until about a week or so ago when he started posting a bunch of rehashed old anti-Semitic conspiracy theory tropes about Zelensky, and how he was supposedly secretly being controlled by Ukrainian Nazis. I'd have thought it was just another gag, but he went out of his way to make sure everyone knew it wasn't. Unfollowed.

I think it is important that we not let this thread go by without mentioning a significantly less glamorous portion of raptor avian medicine:  The hat, dance and song for collecting semen.

I feel bad about laughing, but it was pretty absurd watching the poor bird just fly straight into traffic.

Yeah, I was pretty disappointed. The sendup of ostentatious capitalists was really funny, I looked forward to their posts. But, you know, I'm Jewish... so...

Criticize Israel all you want, I sure as fark do. But repeating old white supremacist tropes, then doubling down when I politely call you out and then going further making it very clear you're not just farking with people, is another thing entirely. Maybe satirizing the UAE rubbed off on him too much.

And I'm joking, before anyone gets upset.  Noone needs a priest.
