Sure, right about now the burglars would find me in the right mood to make them reconsider their choice in life.

If bullshit were music some people would be a brass band.

You have to be quite close for a palm-heel strike to the jaw to have much power, since you're going to want to be striking primarily up with that. But yes, in the right circumstances that's a very powerful technique.

Palm-heel to the nose is so effective as to be potentially lethal; an option if necessary...

... this is my signature!

Perfect! Then I could just stay inside and hunt spiders. Thumbsup

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Somebody pissed off the gods, now didn't they?

You had best be off to Mt. Olympus with a sack full of sacrificial kittens.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

Ranting corner
I've reached that point in my life where I'm part of a couple who doesn't want kids surrounded by couples with kids.

Every weekend I can expect a request for babysitting, followed by a guilt-trip for declining.

You'd think that "Don't want kids" + "Ain't got no kids" would be enough, but no.

"Hey, you wanna babysit my kids?"

No! What the hell would lead you to believe I do?

And I feel like a bad person for even thinking it. It's not enough to constantly defend why I decided to not have kids to people who look at me like I'm crazy for wanting to build a life without kids:
I'm also defective in that I don't want to watch their kids when they decide they're tired and need a break from having kids.

Well that can easily be fixed.
Just demand -considerable- payment for services rendered every time they ask you to kid-sit. They will either stop asking or you will be paid substantially for your troubles.

BIRDS ! Arrrggg Gasp We got so many, its like that movie , The Birds.

I cant walk through the front yard without getting attacked Hobo

Last year was the year of Cicadas and that means the bird population explodes..... it is kinda pretty to watch them and hear them singing in the morning, but by mid morning the fights start, we seem to have a high number of Cardinals and those birds aint affraid of anything......including me. Shocking

One even made a nest in my garage and seems to want to fight me for my bike... very awkward holding a broom up and backing the bike out. Angry Laugh out load

If bullshit were music some people would be a brass band.
