    He should be;

    Considerate
    Strong
    Sensitive

    RE: Swine, Pigs, Hogs, are cleaner than dogs and some people

    I am sure pigs got a reputation of being dirty animals from the fact that they like to wallow in mud. They have no desire to clean the dried mud off themselves and as a result they look atrocious to the human eye. What the casual observer doesn't realize however, is that pigs cover themselves with caked on mud as a defense against stinging insects. Another trait about pigs which makes them inherently clean is a pig will never crap where it eats unless it's forced to by crowded confinement by humans, unlike many other animals perceived to be clean. Another reason pigs are thought to be dirty animals is caused by the way they are kept in captivity with no ability to get out onto the ground.

    I raised pigs at one time when I had a farm and I had a pregnant sow named Miss Babe. She weighed about 450 lbs. I made her a nice place in the barn to have her babies and one day she was no longer pregnant and there were no piglets to be found. I looked all around for her piglets and found them in a neat little pile in a hollow she had dug out about 50 yards from the barn. I felt she knew better than I did what was best for her babies and left them there where she would go to nurse them and protect them.
    BTW, At one time I had 18 pigs and there was no nasty smell around the farm in fact you wouldn't even know there were pigs there unless you actually saw them. The reason for this was because my pigs were allowed to free range instead of being kept in a closed building living on concrete.

    One time during hunting season a pickup truck with 2 hunters came down my 300 foot long driveway to my house. I assumed they wanted to ask if I saw any deer or if they could hunt on my land. I happened to have 2 boar hogs that weighed about 300 lbs each that liked to sleep in the crawl space under my house and they came out and stood in the driveway facing the truck. Those guys never even got out of the truck but backed all the way out to the road and I never saw them again. I laughed my a** off.

    RE: There's no shame in being wrong

    What I find so amazing is that Climate change deniers say that the climate has been going up and down for millions of years, it's the natural rhythm.of the planet. There have been many well documented Ice Ages in the geological past.
    For them to say that the climate isn't changing is to say that the climate has suddenly stopped changing and the global mean temperature of the earth will remain the same for the next billion years.
    They can't have it both ways.

    The climate goes up & down. OR
    The climate doesn't change.
    Take your pick.

    RE: There's no shame in being wrong

    The shame comes when you are PROVEN wrong and you are unable to admit it to anybody and especially to yourself.
    A case in point; IRMA, you know that little storm that's about to shred Florida? Warmer ocean water couldn't possibly add any more energy to the equation, right?
    And;
    http://america.aljazeera.com/watch/shows/fault-lines/articles/2015/12/18/alaska-native-villages-on-front-lines-of-climate-change.html
    And;
    "Tangier is a town in Accomack County, Virginia, United States, on Tangier Island in Chesapeake Bay. The population was 727 at the 2010 census. Since 1850, the island's landmass has been reduced by 67%."

    "Tangier Island Mayor James “Ooker” Eskridge was drawn into the “debate” over climate change earlier this summer when President Donald Trump called him in June to tell him not to worry about sea-level rise. “Your island has been there for hundreds of years, and "I believe" your island will be there for hundreds more"
    I guess this bit of tripe is what is to replace science? I feel soooo much better now knowing the future of scientific investigations are in the hands of such a brilliant man.

    Global warming deniers, admit it,

    You were wrong! wave

    RE: Should Abortion be banished

    seaworthy: Plain and simple..Yes

    Let's begin in the beginning. When does conception begin? Conception occurs when a sperm cell from a fertile man swims up through the va*ina and into the uterus of a woman and joins with the woman's egg cell as it travels down one of the fallopian tubes from the ovary to the uterus.

    Abortion is tantamount to murder.for those who disagree tell me....when a pregnant women is murdered why is the murderer charged with two counts of murder? Talk about double standards.

    This aught to keep you occupied for a few days.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Personhood

    Since you're drilling down to the egg & sperm level why not go even deeper and state that the egg is a future person and when a woman deusches herself she is committing murder by destroying a potential future baby and when a man m-bates he is also guilty of murder?

    Can you see how unworkable your position is?

    RE: In your opinion, What was/were the best Record Album(s) ever made?

    hollywood2: the best album i think that was ever made was the woodstock album live from yazgurs farm, it had everyone and anyone that changed the face of rock and roll ..

    I have that album. It's 3 records. I've never played it but that doesn't mean it is pristine. It's been played plenty. I inherited it from my ex wife when we split up. I'll have to wash them and maybe if I feel up to it I'll rip the songs off them. I'm sure I'll have a ton of work electronically cleaning up all the scratches and noise.

    Speaking of Woodstock, I was hanging around with a couple of people at that time who were making the trek to Woodstock and I was gonna go with them but the media was really flooding the airwaves with reports about how the cops were going to be really cracking down on everybody. My friends were pretty heavy into pot and the last thing I wanted was to get busted for drugs. So, I decided to bail on the trip. From what I saw on TV and heard of the rough conditions at the event I was glad I didn't go.

    RE: Should Abortion be banished

    aries1234: Interesting points

    Way beyond interesting, educational.

    Jac you have obviously done your homework. A point I would like to make about would be fathers is; Very often it is the father who must provide financial support for the child for 18 years (in the US) I assume same in the rest of the west. That should give the potential father quite a bit of say in the decision to bring a person into the world.

    RE: Should Abortion be banished

    OP, to answer your question my answer is NO.
    Now I have a question. Are you asking about the UK, Europe, or world wide?

    My contribution to this thread is;

    Banning all access to safe, medical abortion with no legal restrictions is tantamount to enabling and/or encouraging raising the death rate of young women of childbearing age. AKA Murder! Banning abortion will NOT result in lowering the number of abortions, it will merely drive the practice underground exactly the way it did prior to the "Roe v Wade" decision which legalized abortion in the US. 1000's of women died at the hands of DIY amateurs who used the desperation of "knocked up" women as a means of making some money. I've seen photographs of dead, naked, women laying in a pool of blood in a motel bathroom, if you had, you might get the idea that legally banning access to safe, medical abortion is really a terrible idea. My own sister nearly bled to death trying to abort her 6th pregnancy with one of my mothers knitting needles when abortion was illegal. She already had 5 kids and a shithead, absent, womanizing, "husband".

    I happen to own a copy of "Free Wheelin" and you're right it's a great album. I once read that a very early limited edition of that album with 1 different song on it is worth about $1500.00. It must have been one of the first pressings.
    Loads of great great suggestions so far. For me, I'd like to submit "New World Record" by ELO and for the Jazz lovers "Hi Fi Ellington Uptown". And of course, "Meet The Beatles.

    RE: BLATANT CONSUMER RIP-OFFS !!

    Track16: Appliances are made to break, cars are made to break, electronics are made to break.


    Sorry, but I am of the opinion that "Planned obsolescence" is an erroneous label bestowed upon products of low quality which fail prematurely. No manufacturer would intentionally build a product that fails in short order to generate repeat sales. That company would soon be put out of business.by a competitor whose products last longer. I think it's more a matter of a lack of resources (skill, knowledge, materials, machinery) or cost competition that results in a product which wont stand the test of time. Just look at most things made in China. The only way they can compete is on cost therefore they skimp on everything to keep the cost down.

    RE: BLATANT CONSUMER RIP-OFFS !!

    Just got this from my son.

    "The dentist got me signed up with this crap. Total racket. It's like a usury loan company and a collection agency all wrapped up in one. They hit me with a bs fee. I got them to take it off and paid the balance in full. f*ck that!"

    https://www.consumerfinance.gov/about-us/newsroom/cfpb-orders-ge-carecredit-to-refund-34-1-million-for-deceptive-health-care-credit-card-enrollment/

    With all the BS going on in this country regarding health care, first the Republicans trying 60 times to repeal the ACA (Affordable Care Act) AKA "Obamacare" and failing 60 times. Followed by the former star of the TV sitcom "The Apprentice" and Con Artist Real Estate Developer from NYC, who with funding from Russian banks joined at the hip to the "Vlad" * Putin and the Kremlin, managed to Con the "poorly Educated" into voting him into the White House, He too failed utterly to repeal the Affordable Care Act with nothing to replace it. It's like someone (in this case 23 Million poor Americans who desperately need healthcare) hanging from a sheer cliff face and this joker is sawing at the rope with a dull knife. It shows what an utter failure he is because even with his party controlling all 3 branches of government he's impotent to get rid of even an unpopular program.

    * Vlad is a term used to describe a Russian scammer.

    RE: Post your Classical faves here

    There's quite a story behind this piece as far as I'm concerned. By pure luck I managed to grab this off the radio when I was looking for something to record to use up a cassette tape. I had no idea who or what it was so I loaned the tape to a friend who worked at a school to play it for the music teacher. Well the jerk lost it. It took me about 7 years to find out the name of the piece. How I found it again is even more interesting than how I found & lost it the first time. This is only the first part, the second part is completely different.
    I want this played at my funeral. I only wish I could be there there to hear it. crying

    RE: Bird Baths

    Conrad73: actually Ooby is right on this one!

    Thanks.

    The history of the building of the Panama Canal hinged on eradicating the Mosquito from the area which carried Yellow Fever. The workers were falling like fly's. They thought the sickness was caused by some unknown bacteria and to isolate the hospital beds from contamination they placed a saucer of water under each bed leg. This was a welcome place for mosquito's to lay their eggs.
    This level of ignorance always boggles my mind.doh

    RE: Bird Baths

    Bird Baths are cool. They are fun to watch birds frolicking in the water. Birds of course don't need humans to provide them with a place to bathe, they can handle that job on their own, they've been doing it for a million years before mankind climbed down from a tree. No, the only benefit from a bird bath, is to entertain people.
    Like everything else on earth that's cool, there's almost always a downside. The downside with Bird Baths is, they are like little maternity wards for Mosquitoes. After a Mosquito stings you or some other warm blooded mammal, she looks for a nice reliable source of standing water on which she can construct a raft of usually about 35 eggs more or less. These eggs hatch out into Larvae (those cute little wiggly things you sometimes see in a rain barrel?). Look at one with a powerful magnifying glass and they look anything but cute. They look like something from a horror movie.

    It's ok to have a Bird Bath but they carry a responsibility. The water must be dumped out and refilled at least every 10 days during warm weather. This will guaranty that no Mosquito Larvae will be there long enough to mature and fly off to sting and breed again. By doing that, you will not only be preventing an increase of the Mosquito population, you will actually be effectively lowering the Mosquito population by luring egg carrying breeders to their doom. I don't have a bird bath but I do maintain a bucket of water outside which about every week & a half I screen out at least 75 to 100 Mosquito Larvae. In the couple of years I've been doing this I've detected a noticeable drop in the number of Mosquitoes in the area that attack me when I'm outside.
    BTW, the same logic applies to dog watering bowls. You wouldn't want your pet to get a disease like Zika, Dengue or chikungunya virus from infected Mosquito Larvae they lap up from their water bowl right?barf
