    Default I Saw a Fat Pigeon Today

    and I'm pretty sure I could've caught it. The thing was just standing there pecking. I stared him straight in the eyes and knew at that moment I could run him down like the rat he is. The pigeon had some real nerve staring this ball of man down.

    Good show pigeon, good show.

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    I live on the org, feeding off of what few thanks are tossed at my posts. It is up to you to make sure I don't starve.

    I read this thread because I thought he said "fought it" not "caught it", but this is still entertaining nonetheless.
    In all these papers we see a love of honest work, an aversion to shams, a caution in the enunciation of conclusions, a distrust of rash generalizations and speculations based on uncertain premises. He was never anxious to add one more guess on doubtful matters in the hope of hitting the truth, or what might pass as such for a time, but was always ready to take infinite pains in the most careful testing of every theory. With these qualities was united a modesty which forbade the pushing of his own claims and desired no reputation except the unsought tribute of competent judges.

    On a related note, I saw a pigeon get killed in mid air by a crow. I was just walking home. Then the crow got off the corpse and flew to a nearby tree and just stared at me. I ran.

    Yet on another related note, all of the squirrels around where I live seem to be extremely stupid.

    They run across the street fine, but then they wait until you're almost up to them and suddenly dart towards the front of your car, causing you to brake very hard and often, almost get in a crash.

    This has happened to me like 5 times already and I am seriously considering just not braking for squirrels now

    Squirrels are pretty evil I say, remember that pack of black squirrels attacking and killing a dog ? Should be somewhere in the news of the weird thread.

    Pigeons (most birds infact) make me uncomfortable....truth be told, pigeons not only make me uncomfortable, those reddish eyes of theirs and their habit to go 'grooo-grooo' all the time scares me a bit
    The way I like birds is roasted, with sauce.

    I was outstared by a huge wild pig once. Well, I was in the woods hiking and came round a corner & there it was - unscared, fast & armed.
    I stopped & started walking backwards after some scary moments. The piggie did nothing, just stared....~:
