General Discussion / Re: Reddit vs The Fora

The Reddit interface is shit. Forum architecture makes it much easier to have and track a conversation. Reddit just looks like the '90s.

Thanks everyone! As I mentioned, I still have the old car because I want to fix it!!!

Anyway, the 'new' car is last year's model with about 10k miles on it (not too bad). Wasn't crazy expensive, but wasn't cheap. But, it needed to happen! I think it's cute! Not too fancy, smaller size sedan. Smooth ride, reliable and cute. Very cute.

Also, I've already loaded most of my crap into it! Nothing hanging from the mirror (well, just a parking tag).

Oh, it's silver!

Congratulations! May it serve well, and problem-free, for a good long time!

My husband and I were out driving yesterday evening after supper and saw a juvenile red-tailed hawk on a post in a nearby church's garden. We had to stop, roll down the window, and try to take some pictures.

It perched on the post for a few minutes, then flew down to perch on the edge of a raised planter box. After a moment, it went to the next box and hid among the green Bell peppers. Finally, it took off and landed in a nearby tree.

What a magnificent bird! And its wingspan!

The expectations of the administration for the "regular and substantive interaction" in virtual classes are great. Or they would be if I were only teaching 20 students per semester. Unfortunately, it just created an expectation of lying about what one will do in one's class, because it would be impossible to do what they are expecting.

One of the local barred owls has learned that it can land on my elevated birdbath and get a drink!  I've seen it twice now, in the late afternoon.

The main problem with this is logistical. Having a gun easily accessible in case of emergency makes it much easier to lead to an accidental shooting. There are lots of cases in the news from the US where children (often toddlers) have shot people (including siblings an parents) with the gun owned by an irresponsible adult. Having the gun stored safely to avoid this, such as with the ammunition removed, makes it much less likely to be useful in an emergency.

Jim Jeffries covers this.

I'd prefer Cuttlefish.

Also, excellent proper pluralization there.

Merci bien.
