Did you know that zero, if it is considered a number, would be an even number?

Not only that, but if Rapparree were a number he would be an odd number, one that asserted it was prime while not actually being prime. An odd number due to its square roots, one can only assume, even though that sounds like his two PhD uncles, a pair o'docs.

You should really consult professional help, Gnu. This may account for the pallor. And the bloated feeling. And several other symptoms which shall be nameless.

The nameless ones are the worst. When the doc shrugs his shoulders and offers me pain killers, I get rather upset. More upsetting is the fact that he finds it odd that I refuse medications. I take the blood pressure pills but that's it. Well, the Bud pressure pills too but that's a different saturation.

Oh gnu, if I could but figure a way to send you good beer! Bitch Creek, Moose Drool, Trout Slayer, Fat Tire, Blue Bicycle, Polygamy Porter, Red Rocks, Midnight Satin, Twisted Stick, Belligerent Ass, Dead Guy...even Sam Adams! I hate to see you destroying your liver with (**shudder!!**) Budweiser!!! Even Molson or LaBatt or Moosehead is superior to THAT so-called beer! Come South, young man, and indulge in REAL beer!

Well, I admit that Blue isn't top of the line beer, especially if you think Bud's better. But that's sort of saying that you're rather drink sewage from a flowing sewer pipe instead of dipping it out of the treatment plant's "lagoon," isn't it?

Gnu, I suggest you develop a taste for Guinness. I am sure you can get it around NB somewhere--didn't they used to be Irish or something?

Used to be Irish? Thar be more Irish in NB than any other oppressed and downtrodden ethnicities. As for Guinness, it is readily available but I have neither the taste nor the fortitude for such strong drink. I would prefer to flush my kidneys with weak ale than flush them down the toilet with some call a proper ale.

Thanks for the anthem. I can only assume the title will be equally of high calibre... or do you Yanks spell it 'caliber'?

But think of the economy! Instead of a case of LeBatts, you can be just as mellow with two fine bottles of Guinness. You're such a whiz at domestic calculations, I am surprised you don't have a basement full of that good brown stuff!

Dandelion Tensions Escalate

Today, whilst engaging my neighbour in a friendly conversation, he strode into my yard and killed a dandelion. He actually bent over and ripped it from it's mother. Dead. Murdered before my eyes. I was shocked. And it was on the part of my lawn that he 'over sprays' his cancer causing crap on.

I 'asked', "You killed one of my pretty yellow flowers?

"Yes. God damned bastard weed."

"Take it home. You can eat almost all of it."

"I wouldn't eat that shit."

"Well, I am gonna try to mow the lawns this evening if my back holds out."

He proceeded to lecture me on the proper time of day to mow my lawn so I could kill the maximum amount of dandelions. "Do it the afternoon when they are standing up? before they lay down as dark approaches."

Oh, it's on. Fire a shot across my bow when I have a huge green Grass Monkey with full shot? He's got herbicides but I got Mom on my side. I am gonna send so many Dandy Squadron Paratroopers his way that his window screens are gonna choke up with those who will sacrifice themselves for the sake of their Mom. Mow at high sun? Mow at eve? No. No mow bullshit? it's on.

Once, long ago, we found dandelion seed at a local store. We bought a packet and gave it to our neighbor, Ron, who loved dandelion salad.

Ron didn't make salad. He went out one night and carefully sowed the seeds on the lawn of his neighbor on the other side, the lawn freak. The next spring, bright yellow flowers spelled out "F**k you".

This is not to suggest anything, merely an anecdote from my past.

I happen to like, as in admire, the dandelion. It is colorful, cheerful, hardy and one of our earliest 'flowers'. Not only that, but as noted above, a lot of it is edible. Not to mention that it is self-sustaining. So why is it called a weed?

Did I ever mention that my parents sent me to Earth in a rocket ship from the planet Krypton? I was a bumpy ride and I was sorry my parents died when Krypton exploded, but I was found loving couple outside of Smallville, USA and I dedicated my life to Truth, Justice, and the American Way. It was only in the last ten years or so I changed my name from Clark Kent.

Well fly yer ass up here and catch the Rambo with the guns. Hint : He's in a wooded area about 2km due north of me. Chopper circling all morning. Many RCMP. Large area under lock down. You can leave but you can't go in. Everything is closed... schools, stores. 3 RCMP dead, 2 in hospital. He started shooting around 6PM last night. Ever see "Rambo"?

Gary Owens I think he is in the woods in the area of Mapleton park or north, holed up in the woods until dark. He did not target civilians. It has been (unconfirmed) that before the RCMP arrived, he told two people in separate locations along his "walk" to go inside. Chopper has been in the air most of the day circling wooded areas between Killam and the TCH.

Gary Owens Raining now. That's does not help.
****************************************************

I doubt if he will shoot and civilians but he is obviously unbalanced as his Facebook page clearly displays... poetry, writings and a macabre song. He is a woodsman and he is a marksman. 24 years old, fit, heavily armed and 'on a mission'.

Has anyone else noted Rapparree's revealing statement?   What I he said was : "I was a bumpy ride" (must be an alien planet thing) and I was sorry my parents died when Krypton exploded, but I was found loving {a} couple outside of Smallville, USA"

That is why he is called Superman, I think.

I hope that he gets what he deserves. I'm certain the cops feel that way. I hope you mum is okay.

In Seattle a man started firing a shotgun at students in Pacific *** University, a small school. He fired three shots and was then pepper-gassed and subdued by "bystanders" while reloading. One dead, and the perp in jail. He is, of course, a friendly, loving, intelligent type who posted and wrote nothing special and who has no mental problems, according to his family and friends.

I hope the shooter gets the help he obviously needs. No doubt he will undergo a lengthy psych exam and I base this on his poetry, writings, songs, eye witness reports of prior aberrant behaviour, one of which was that he told the witness he was gonna do it two weeks before he did it, and the fact that he did what he did... he was on a mission to kill RCMP. Nobody else. He could have easily done so but warned at least two to, "Go inside."

A mental health issue? A drug problem? Any way ya cut it, many have been affected. So sad.

So many shootings. The one in Seattle yesterday was a disturbed young man: The man accused in Thursday's shootings at Seattle Pacific University in Seattle previously told police here that he wanted to hurt himself and others, and that he hoped a SWAT team would come get him and "make him famous," according to public records.

Two of the biggest problems are lack of recognition that it IS a problem (which should be self-evident to all but the most blind) and a resulting lack of resources (including will) to deal with it.

This, by the way, is not PTSD. It's something else and it's frightening.

Why are people in so many countries willing to kill others and then themselves?

Why can't medical and mental health professionals admit that sometimes all of their efforts can fail and someone must be, humanely and with kindness, kept somewhere where they are not a danger to themselves or others?

Why can't media moguls take some of the responsibility for the problem?

What WILL it take?

Yes, A. Took 12 minutes after the plane with the high tech camera was over the area... 11:58 to 12:10. It was on loan from the federal oceanographic service out of Halifax. "We are over the target area. There's a human crouching behind a tree where no human should be in lockdown." SWAT had him at 12:10.

THEN, it gets really complicated. But, Mom don't wanna hear about his buddy getting shot by RCMP last July that was not killed by the 4 bullets but by "prior stab wounds" according to the coroner's report... the thought plickens.

We seem to have become a society of people unwilling to pay for things of quality if we think we can get them for free. Some things should be free, but the idea of saving up for important things is devalued now.

Raining here today so I don't get to mow the lawn. Maybe tomorrow morning. I still have a couple of ideas to work on to more thoroughly dog-proof the back fence. And I need to get another collar from the Invisible Fence folks. I'm thinking an essay and a conversation about a deep discount. I know I've sold a lot of people on it with my essay about the possum that got in the yard. Something similar happened with a turtle this week.
