The Coyote problem can't be all the different to our fox problem.

Out in front of us there are two foxes, both look young, fit and healthy. They go through the trash and make a mess but that's the extent of the problem. They hide in the bushes and panic if you catch them in the open and run away.

Out in back of us is an old fox. It can climb up on the walls and run along the top of the coal sheds in full view of any dogs which are in the yards... which then bark for hours. If there are no dogs about it will go into the averies (At least two people within a stones throw of me keep racing pigeons and another has finches and canaries. I know there are others not so near who keep chickens and ducks). Between the fox and the hawks, the cats don't go out at night here which in some ways is a blessing because the fox makes less noise -- 10 years ago I would have said we had a cat problem! One of my elderly neighbours doesn't have a dog and last summer found the fox in her kitchen.


The conventional country wisdom is that the younger foxed love to do what foxes are supposed to do, they are off chasing rabbits and eat the slugs, and are generally useful.
The older foxes haven't got the energy for that, as they get older, they get more confident and more cunning. Like any vermin, it is best just to cull the older ones once they become a problem.

Having said that, a fox is most useful when you are wearing it, there is nothing quite as warm as fur.

We get people in the suburbs to the north of Vancouver feeding bears that come down from the mountains. And they have to be shot. I believe some municipalities (counties) have enacted stiff fines for such behavior. But there are enough idiots and little old ladies leaving food out for raccoons, foxes and coyotes, and others too lazy to secure their garbage cans properly, that they will always be a problem. Way more raccoons in suburbia than there are in the same amount of space in the wild. Way more food, way more hiding places. Same goes for the stellar sea lions that people feed in Steveston, Richmond. The juveniles come to be fed, don't get fed and drags a little girl into the water to show it's annoyance and frustration at not being fed.

Don't feed the fuckers, and they will tend to leave.

But do feed the songbirds, especially in the winter, just make sure your not feeding those fucking squirrels at the same time.

It's kind of like drama-queens/narcissists, don't feed them and they too will go away. The internet is the suburbs for these people. It breeds them like, like rats in the suburbs.

I'm, like, a thousand years late to the party, but I just started playing Brütal Legend, and it is AWESOME!!! (not the gameplay as much as the music, guests, and general atmosphere).

Also, we've watched the first episode of Peaky Blinders. Like it so far.

Wait till you get to series two when Tom Hardy comes into it. He's truly terrifying but also very funny.

I don't know how Tom Hardy's character hasn't run afoul of the SJW police. Fucking great performance though.

Adrian Brody on the other hand; I wonder if they asked for a big bag of Godfather cliches or that was all him?

I thought he sounded like Papa Lazarou.

I'm surprised the show hasn't moved to BBC One yet. That can add a couple of million to the audience.

Similar advice I was given by a retired "humane" fox control expert who had been advising local council in London. Elderly next door neighbour was freaking out about Foxes scatting in the back yard (she never went out to it anyway) I had them taking over an old shed which had a hole and was overgrown tilI cleared it and now repaired the hole.
He said no point taking them out as they are territorial and have average patches of X number of back gardens that they protect so it limits them as they mostly keep to their patches and try to avoid other fox territories.
Kill one and another will just move in.
Personally I dont mind them apart from the eerie noise they make (which is like a child being murdered if you don't recognise it) plus the shitting in my back yard.

Dave Chappelle mocks "victims" of Louis CK
“One lady said, ‘Louis C.K. masturbated in front of me, ruined my comedy dreams,’” he says in the bit. “Word?’ Well then I dare say, madam, you may have never had a dream. Come on man, that’s a brittle spirit. That is a brittle-ass spirit, that is too much, this grown-ass woman.” He also mentions Schachner’s story more specifically. “I know that sounds fucked up, I’m not supposed to say that, but one of these ladies was like, ‘Louis C.K. was masturbating while I was on the phone with him,’” Chappelle says. “Bitch, you don’t know how to hang up a phone? How the fuck are you going to survive in show business if this is an actual obstacle to your dreams?”

I had no idea how common foxes were in London 'til walking home down a street off Clapham Common one night. There were foxes under cars, on top of cars, on garden walls, rooting through garbage cans. This was all on one street. First fox I ever saw in London was crossing Cannon St in daylight.

Shooting the people responsible would be a better plan.

I grew up in rural Oklahoma. Plenty of coyotes there, but they were rarely a problem because individuals were shot on sight. If you spotted a group you could either deal with it yourself or call the guy just down the road who raised greyhounds specially to hunt coyotes, and he'd come over and take care of them.

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/26/sport ... ounds.html

(Not the same guy, but the same idea.)

As a result coyote sightings were a rarity for our family. I vaguely recall one incident when I was very little where a coyote tangled with one of our boxers - the coyote did not do so well - but that's the only actual attack.

Now I live in the "Inland Empire" east of Los Angeles. Around here I average 3-4 coyote sightings per month, usually when I'm out walking my dog - yes, another boxer. Funny thing, there are always "lost dog" and "lost cat" posters around.

Another problem is the diseases they drag down from the mountains and donate to the local dog population. One of our neighbors recently
lost their St. Bernard to lyme disease, courtesy of a tick likely brought in by coyote.

There's one coyote in particular I see pretty regularly: Quite small, mangey, open sores, and a deformed leg. It used to be part of a group of four but now appears to be on its own. This particular coyote wouldn't last a week in Olkahoma, but around here it manages because PEOPLE FUCKING FEED THE GODDAMN THINGS.

Of course if pressed they'll tell you that the huge bowl of dog food they put out is for their own dog. Which happens to be a Yorkie.

AFAIK there's no such thing as Coyote Chow, but the pet stores around here sell Varmint Chow, in case the squirrels in your yard are looking a little peaky.

Yeah, all the stupid is a laugh a minute right up to the point where some kid gets killed. I figure it's only a matter of time.

We use one of the various a squirrel-proof feeders for that. The squirrels have pretty much given up trying to get into it.

The idea that hunting pests likes coyotes is futile is nonsense. You won't get them all permanently, but you certainly cut down on their numbers and especially the human habituated pests and the diseased ones.

My folks cable TV can do youtube, so I suggest my family watch her Xmas special. My sister grabs the remote to search. Asks me her first name. Types in P-H-I-L-O-M-E-N-A. Asks me her last name. I say it and my sister snaps her head and snarls, 'how do you spell that?!!' Ms sister decides none of us want to watch it.

There's a lot of buzz in the Internet Conspiratorium at the moment about something called "QAnon", particularly as related to this recent Executive Order.

QAnon is a bunch of /4chan and /8chan posts (start at the bottom) from someone called "Q" that started in November. This "Q" purports to be a government insider, and he, she, or it (it's Awwiens!!! :) ) has been dropping lots of posts that come across as a bit like puzzle pieces in an ARG. The function of the drops is (apparently) to prepare the ground for full revelations to come as a result of the EO.

All good clean fun, you might say - except there do seem to be a growing number of tantalizing coincidences and interconnections between some of the puzzle pieces and things that have been happening this year and recently - e.g. the curious revelations from Mueller's investigations re. FBI agents acting as Clinton shills; an unusual spike in sealed indictments this year; the swift cleaning up of MS-13 earlier this year; an unusual number of "small fry" paedophile rings dotted around the country being caught earlier this year; the recent exposures of sexual misconduct in Hollywood and politics; and a whole bunch of other things that may or may not be connected. Infowars and the like are all over it of course - but the thing that's giving me pause is that Lionel Nation and a few other more reasonable types seem to be giving it some credence too.

The general idea seems to be that there's been a gradual noose-tightening by US military intelligence (Marines and Navy) plus some elements of the NSA and the the three letter agencies who are loyal to Trump, who have been quietly gathering info about bad actors (including but not limited to the Clintons, the Podestas, etc., plus some of the big tech people who've apparently been colluding with the three letter agencies in turning FB, Google, etc., into arms of US surveillance).

Apparently, Trump is now poised to use this EO to drain the swamp good and proper via connections to human trafficking/gun running/money laundering/paedophile rings (and of course people are tying this to Pizzagate too). There are also some geopolitical aspects in there as well, particularly relating to the recent surprise clean-up in Saudia Arabia and some other things that have been happening recently, particularly with NK and Iran. It's all too dense and fiddly to bother getting into much unless you're a true sperg, but it's quite fun to get into the spirit of it for a while.

Who knows - at the very least it's all very entertaining and QAnon is a great GM. And if it's legit, there are some yuuge shocks coming down the pipe in early 2018. The best thing about it is that, if it's true, it's a classic tale of hubris and nemesis. (They basically thought that given the weight of propaganda behind her, Hillary couldn't lose, so they didn't cover their arses very carefully, and the whole "Muh Russia" thing basically mutated from the initial "it was the Russians" excuse the DNC gave out immediately after the Wikileaks, into a weaksauce form of "insurance" against Trump's winning that's now starting to unravel.)

Agreed. Filled with stuff like this:

Even though they come from two different familys.

I loved the Black Mirror series (more like an anthology), and was excited there is a new season out. The first few are meh - no "White Christmas" or "White Bear" among the first I have seen in season 4....

I think Metal Head is one of their best.
But I think overall this was their weakest seasons.

I know what you mean, the 1st story was okay ish, the one I wasn't bothered about the 'Dating site' story, I just didn't get the ending at all. There are a couple of good dark ones in there though but still can't understand why one of the stories was filmed in black and white. The last story I thought was good, a real throwback to 'Tales of the unexpected' in its format.

I've tried not to spoil anything.

This is one reason Brexit is bad for me - I'll lose my rights to automatically live and work in most of Europe, and ther's no way I'm going to back to the UK. It is lost to the goat fuckers. Probably forever.

QAnon is a bunch of /4chan and /8chan posts (start at the bottom) from someone called "Q" that started in November. This "Q" purports to be a government insider, and he, she, or it (it's Awwiens!!! :) ) has been dropping lots of posts that come across as a bit like puzzle pieces in an ARG. The function of the drops is (apparently) to prepare the ground for full revelations to come as a result of the EO.

All good clean fun, you might say - except there do seem to be a growing number of tantalizing coincidences and interconnections between some of the puzzle pieces and things that have been happening this year and recently - e.g. the curious revelations from Mueller's investigations re. FBI agents acting as Clinton shills; an unusual spike in sealed indictments this year; the swift cleaning up of MS-13 earlier this year; an unusual number of "small fry" paedophile rings dotted around the country being caught earlier this year; the recent exposures of sexual misconduct in Hollywood and politics; and a whole bunch of other things that may or may not be connected. Infowars and the like are all over it of course - but the thing that's giving me pause is that Lionel Nation and a few other more reasonable types seem to be giving it some credence too.

The general idea seems to be that there's been a gradual noose-tightening by US military intelligence (Marines and Navy) plus some elements of the NSA and the the three letter agencies who are loyal to Trump, who have been quietly gathering info about bad actors (including but not limited to the Clintons, the Podestas, etc., plus some of the big tech people who've apparently been colluding with the three letter agencies in turning FB, Google, etc., into arms of US surveillance).

Apparently, Trump is now poised to use this EO to drain the swamp good and proper via connections to human trafficking/gun running/money laundering/paedophile rings (and of course people are tying this to Pizzagate too). There are also some geopolitical aspects in there as well, particularly relating to the recent surprise clean-up in Saudia Arabia and some other things that have been happening recently, particularly with NK and Iran. It's all too dense and fiddly to bother getting into much unless you're a true sperg, but it's quite fun to get into the spirit of it for a while.

Who knows - at the very least it's all very entertaining and QAnon is a great GM. And if it's legit, there are some yuuge shocks coming down the pipe in early 2018. The best thing about it is that, if it's true, it's a classic tale of hubris and nemesis. (They basically thought that given the weight of propaganda behind her, Hillary couldn't lose, so they didn't cover their arses very carefully, and the whole "Muh Russia" thing basically mutated from the initial "it was the Russians" excuse the DNC gave out immediately after the Wikileaks, into a weaksauce form of "insurance" against Trump's winning that's now starting to unravel.)

As most probably know by now the 'Huh-White' pronunciation of the word 'White' comes from race-realist Jared Taylor. (Possibly it developed as a result of his being raised in Japan). So it has an association with the Alt-Right - and it's that purity that the good Doctor and his assistant may be mocking.

I have enough trouble remembering all the TLAs (Three Letter Acronyms) especially when they start to double up. For example, recently an alternative resolution for WWW presented itself in 'White Women's Wombs'. (How you pronounce that phrase is up to you).

Here's Mark Collett to expound on the concept of WWW further, and also to do a breakdown of cuckoldry in christmas advertisements. Enjoy:

The only thing Mark has going for him is the fetid curiosity of his (remarkably attractive) girlfriend. I wonder if her swastika and German eagle breast tats glow in the dark?

Mark himself is a piss and vinegar would-be bovver boy dreaming of his lost BNP glory.

Marcus, you have a smorgasbord of Valkyries to choose from, retract from that rabbit hole.
https://harpers.org/archive/2017/09/the ... valkyries/

I am amazed at how the critical left get so confused with the narrative. It’s simple.

The short form is: there has been a loss of a cultural Christian based moral consensus that strove to provide the best possible parameters for child rearing. This consensus had broad gender role models defined - provider and nurturer. Synergy existed between the leftist units of family, community, nation and this was glued together by a strong enthno heritage. This synergy produced western civilisation. Individuality and individual freedoms existed, but not when they challenged the base model; personal freedom operated within parameters.

Arrayed against this model are forces of destruction that remove the model’s essential simplicity and clarity of approach.

Atheism, libertarianism, economic globalism and the Capitalist push for growth through population. PoMo schools of philosophical thought, oppositional identitarianism promoting social fragmentation via coalitions of outrage (hello trans and intersectional SJ). Multiculturalism shafting ethno identity, second wave feminism’s destruction of the nurturer, the cucking of males, cultural relativism, direct demographic and cultural invasion via illegal migration and islamification, left dominance via the leverage of white privilege, the gay assault on trad relationships and marriage, post colonial consciousness / self loathing, politicisation of pre tertiary education. And finally from this mess, a fear of alternative (semi-hidden) power structures - MSM, liberal academia (hello PZ) the JQ, communism etc representing the discernible manifestation of globalists, Jews, Communists and the nihilistic liberal left.

It’s all incredibly intriguing and far more layered than Harpers would ever admit.

Faith is the icing on the cake.

Happy New Year Pitsters.

Spent my annual transition at the Woodford Folk Festival, inland Sunshine Coast, unleashing my dirty hippie. It was bloody hot.

Some most excellent live acts, including:

The moral consensous framework also provides a logical basis for alternative political forms:

One vote per family defined as M-F with kids and / or the old Starship Troopers concept of the vote being a byproduct of civic virtue in turn defined by (voluntary) service.

Interesting description.

But how can we know if it is true or not? Such large scale cultural changes could also be correlated with the rise of social media, lower rates of exercise, decreased sperm counts or even anthropogenic global warning (should it exist).

And then once an accurate diagnosis has been made - what can be done to change things? Or is it too late for Britain or Europe? There is probably not the political will to 'remove kebab' at this point (Steersman does not represent the popular view after all).

For me at least cultural christianity is not the solution - it didn't work the first time after all.

A far-right German politician has been condemned for an anti-Arab and anti-Muslim Tweet, which briefly saw her suspended from the platform.

The Alternative for Germany (AfD) MP Beatrix von Storch said Cologne police were appeasing "barbaric, gang-raping, Muslim hordes" when they tweeted out a New Year's Day message in Arabic.

Under newly introduced German hate laws, social media platforms must respond quickly to remove hate speech or face fines of up to 50 million euros ($60m).
I guess the “Nazi” epithet, thrown with abandon, doesn’t count.
