The theory of dinosaur extinction seems plausible.

First Dino then cats will be devouring harmless birdies.

Sparky the cat has a good "handshake". She sinks her claws affectionately in the back of your hand. It isn't until she lets go -

- then you shake your hand.

Ouch.

No, no no, you've got it all wrong!

A crank and release was better than pulling. In the 60's I bought a $55 mower from JC Penney with money earned from my paper route. Mine was deluxe but similar to the video.

Over the years I dild hundreds of lawns word of mouth. No FB, web, email blast -

The worst lawn was a foot high and I quoted her (the home owner) $2 or fifty cents more than a normal job. I cut much of the lawn with the front wheels way up so it wouldn't stall.

Then something yuuuuge happened while about halfway finishing the foot high lawn.

The lady brought me a 16 ounce ice-cold glass bottle of RC Cola. Coke had 6.5, 10, and the large size was 12 ounces [after my paper route I sometimes sat on my bike leaned against the deli's brick wall and drank a "family size" coke which was 28 oz).

Okay it gets better. I realized that the lawn needed a cross cut to look better - so I decided to proceed with the crosscut which always left an even mulch that looked good. Halfway through the crosscut ANOTHER ice-cold bottle of RC was out on the back stoop for me.

When the job was finished I collected my two dollars then, while riding my bike, pulled MY mower to where ever I was to go next. Home was two miles away so I told the lady I'd come back just so once again. I cut the lawn a little later and thankfully she told me someone else would cut it in the future.



The best mowers has engines made by aircraft engine makers. Mine was manufactured (USA of course) by Lycoming (new school):

We had a Craftsman crank mower that lasted about 25 years. It would still run but the body rusted out. It was much simpler, unfold the crank and wind it up then when you would fold down the crank a pin would release the starter spring and away you go. The throttle knob was on the handle bar.

Heartwarming story out of Brazil. A few months old, but still noteworthy considering all the depressing shit that's constantly in the news

I can somewhat understand the concept of the "thrill of the hunt", some sort of manly/survival/primal urge but for the life of me I do not see how these people can not feel remorse and especially foolish smiling and posing with a propped up dead animal beside them. I guess that is how they get their trophy wives too.

A little too much man-spreading going on there, no matter what they're wearing.

Disturbing.

I think women would look pretty silly in those too. They bring to mind some of the sweet little outfits that babies wear.
