see, I dont care for apple, No need to get into my reasons im sure other posters here have already listed them. HOWEVER I also understand that different people have different wants and needs in their devices. the iphone is better for some people, and the android is better for others. Depending on ones needs depends on what I recomend to people. I will bust my friends balls, but in the end whatever makes people happy is what they should get

Absolutely true. Canids and felids in particular hunt more for sport than for food. Wolves have been observed having all sorts of fun killing an entire flock of sheep. Foxes hunt and kill mice and birds without eating 'em. And I used to have a cat who did nothing but hunt gophers all day long; within 3 years he'd completely exterminated them in my neighborhood.

Incidentally my neighbor runs a twice-weekly foxhunt, tho the usual quarry is coyotes (mostly chasing, they usually don't shoot 'em). The local coyotes have gotten so into being chased by dogs that they come down to the kennel the night before a hunt and get the dogs all riled up and ready to go.

Female dogs that have never had pups will often kill puppies. Presumably fewer of someone else's offspring means more resources when you have your own.

[This is a consistent enough behavior that I warn clients in no uncertain terms to never ever leave the new puppy alone with the adult dog, most especially the spayed female adult dog.]

Journal: Chances of being killed by police in the USA

Journal by Space cowboy

So 104 people were killed by police in the USA during August, 2014. To my eyes, that's an absolutely enormous figure. As a Brit, I compare it to the 1 person killed over 3 years by the UK police. Yes, they're two different countries, yes there's a lot more people in the US, yes they have different cultures, yadda yadda yadda; people are dying here.

Let's do some maths:

i was a baby in the 80s, which is why i went with bush but i see your point. I was involved in the bush bashing, because he was a horrible president (although in retrospect I dont think he was as bad as I thought 6 years into obama) My only point is that the consensus on both sides is that bush was a fuckup. However 6 years in, one side still think obamas shit dont stink. his generals are going against what he says publicly, he has no credibility with the international community. He may have ran on the "not bush" campaign, but he has shown himself to be bush, but worse

fair enough points. Clearly there is a line that should be there yet somehow is gone. Telling someone they look nice today is in NO way harassment and or assault. What you said obviously is. Thats the point im making things that are legit complements are taken as assault and harassment these days.
