Default OUCH

This might be enough to put me off fishing for a while. Its a harsh world out there but we all gotta go sometime.

Fishermen Find Human Head —Inside Shark

Not going to post extracts. Reading that is too rough a way to start the day. I wish I knew how to post the picture though.

PICTURE IS OF THE SHARK DAMNIT. More coffee.

No merci! French police Taser chocolate-loving monkey after it causes 'bedlam' at school by attacking children to get to their treats
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...en-treats.html

Quote:


African macaque was causing havoc at elementary school in Marseilles
After scratching children to get to chocolate, had eluded police for weeks
It's believed monkey was raised illegally and abandoned in the city
The mischievous primate has fully recovered and will now move to a zoo

Stunned: The mischievous African macaque is tended to by a vet
after being shot with a Taser gun by French police in Marseilles


Monkey see, monkey, "Don't!"

I have a sock stealing dog.

Just Jason's socks. She does not want my socks or our son's socks. Only Jason's socks. She is not interested in his clean socks. She takes dirty socks from the laundry hamper. She brings them into her bed and cuddles up and sleeps with them.

When Jason complains the dog smells like feet, at least she smells like his feet.

The battling Roosevelt elk at the wilderness park here were a bit more exciteing though you wouldn't guess it from the female elks seeming indifference

. Saw an exciting match where I live, two big racked white tailed deer. You never forget it. If their antlers lock it is two less male deer.

That's why you shuffle your feet when you're in the shallows with them and approach them from the front for feeding / interacting with them. Minimizes the risk of getting hit with their stinger and is safer for any potentially breeding females (shuffle vs stepping) being injured.

Still, they are lovely creatures. Would love to have had a chance to interact with a manta ray.
