RE: RE: the 2017 trivial drivel thread

I watched a bald eagle swoop into my maple trees when I was out picking grapes today.

RE: RE: the 2017 trivial drivel thread



I frequently see them. I saw one just this morning flying above the farm when I came home. It was beautiful, an eagle ballet. I've seen one eating a dead deer too. Did you know that their nest is the size of a queen size bed? Ah-mazing. I used to watch the Decorah eagles on the raptor webcam egg laying through fledgling.

RE: RE: the 2017 trivial drivel thread

When I walk along the river I see their nests. They are huge! I see a few young ones flying around where their heads are not white yet. They are basically vultures that eat road kill and sometimes I see them eating something in the meridian strip.They look good but are scavengers like Ben Franklin commented on. He wanted Turkeys to be the national bird. Turkeys are smart birds. But not as pretty.

My house smells like my Meme's house. Onions, peppers. I believe its the ultimate compliment as I have not smelled it in years. The Professor is cooking an old Canadian recipe and it smells like memories.

Ah, scent memories. I haz 'em.

I think that's why I like sandalwood so much. It's the smell of my Dad. So much happiness associated with that smell.

She showed me a picture on her cellphone and asked, "what kind of spider is this"? It looked like it had a hundred babies clinging to its back. *shudders* There is just so much fuckedupness in one picture. Goddamn I can't stand it. My skin is crawling. Fucking hell.

To Kill A Mockingbird has been removed from a reading list in a Mississippi school district after the district received complaints that some of the language made people uncomfortable. Jesus Christ.

That's sad. They'll never be able to scout how truly outrageous Jem is.

Fucking ridiculous - just because the word 'nigger' is in it?

Asshole fragile snowflakes. If they bothered to know the book they'd know the message is anything but sensationalizing or glorifying the use of the word 'nigger'.

They are likely the same parents who let their kids listen to music that has the word 'nigger', 'ho', 'bitch', etc.

Scout is one of my favorite literary characters. Sure, she was a precocious little cuss, but I say “‘at a cuss!’” to her.

To the whiny censors, I say oh ‘boo!’ or ‘baba’ even.

If they think Jem and Scout are too much for young curious brains, Holden and Phoebe must really give the book-burners a fucking coronary.

Anyway, seriously, it’s a great novel that has succeeded in getting scores of teens interested in literature and civil rights for decades. Language that’s offensive by today’s standards should simply be an opportunity for good teachers and parents to provide historical context.

Agreed. What's next on the book ban list, A Tale of Two Cities?90

Let's erase that past and not learn from it.Sarcasm01
