Spent bloody ages yesterday trying to round up a naughty doggo who had run off from his owner.
I tried everything to call the dog to me, I tried calling it, bribe it with a Snickers bar, chase the fucker etc. Several people joined me & the bloody dog ran us ragged for a good 30 mins.
Ended up he had run off from his owner as she wouldn't feed it any apples on it's walk, she had been looking for it all the time we had been embarrased by this damn dog, it was so smart I had to admire it in the end.

This damn dog was as fast & nearly as wise as one of those Belgium Malinois (if people know what dog I'm on about here)
How people in farm lands such as East Texas etc round up sheep etc is beyond me.

Good on ya for trying to help, the free workout was a bonus lol

I had no option in it, I feel such a deep love for dogs (well animals in general) but my bond to dogs goes deeper than I'm connected to other humans.
If it was my dog that had run off becauase I didn't feed him treats like apples I'd be crying for the damn thing to come back & promise the dog a Toffee-apple treat.

With so many being stolen then used for God knows what I simply couldn't turn a blind eye to a animal that was clearly upset & freaked out, they have to be chipped by law so I saw it as my duty to help it. I saved another one about 18 months ago who had run out from the back gate & took it to the local vets so his chip could be read & given back to his owner(s)

A Doberman Pincher I co-owned was so smart, she could read body language without being taught to do it.
She saved me from being robbed of several oz of weed once, she just jumped at the guy barking & spit was flying all over the place, she was on attack & wasn't playing.

The wanna be bad man ran into his car shouting for me to call the dog off, if I didn't keep her on a short lead she would have taken his throat out, turns out the cunt had a knife & when his hand went into his pocket he was gonna rob me. Somehow the dog "knew" & went to bite his face off to protect me, she didn't think about her own doggo safety it was automatic to save me at her own cost.
You tell me of a human who would do that?

^^Dogs are very smart, and protective of their human pack and so loyal too. They can definitely sense threat and aggression from other humans, often before we notice it ourselves.

These are just some of the reasons that I also have a deep love for dogs and find them much more loveable than most humans. Mind you I do have social anxiety and am also pretty sure that I have Aspergers / Autism too so I generally find other humans difficult, and usually avoid them if I can. I don't have those kind of problems with dogs. One thing I'm looking forward to about retiring from work, is partly because I will finally be able to humanely keep a dog without barbarically leaving it alone 10 hours a day when I'm out at work, like a lot of totally selfish and heartless pricks do.

when i went to the mountains in georgia i met some gorgeous caucasian sheep dogs. the mountains where they farm sheep there are too steep for people, so the dogs literally do everything themselves. its amazing.

they're also clever at stealing food but i forgive em they were friendly to me.



can anyone who plays guitar comment on the above? this is my boyfs. also, we have like 8 amps in our house (only 2 are mine). is this normal? i get its fun to try different sounds, he's constantly buying then selling stuff on ebay cos he just wants to know how they sound.

my philosophy of guitars/accesories tends to be more todd kowalski. i shouldn't have a go at him given my own addiction problems but honestly he makes me sit for ages twiddling things and asking me which sounds best and they all sound the same!!!

Hahah! It’s pretty normal tbh, I was a sound engineer in my youth and there are players with twice or triple that amount of pedals.

lol fair enough. i just don't see the need. i have one pedal and i use it to go from fucking punching you in the face to slightly calmer and am still not sure i need the latter sound.

Yeah it's totally normal for guitar fanatics. I've so far refused to go down that route, sticking to the purist option of acoustic guitar only. For some perverse reason I like the fact that it is so much more difficult, but I do love the purity of the sound of just an acoustic guitar, by far my favourite musical instrument. One day I might give in and go for the easier option and get an electric, but I must admit I am a bit wary of falling into the whole amps, pedals, effects addiction thing.

That's awesome, I hope our new puppy will be as on the ball as this!
He's a border collie.

Executed a save Mark Marquez would be proud of just now; lost front and rear wheel grip simultaneously after a 90 degree right hand turn, loose scree pitching me into a gravel nap, didn't panic, adjusted the bars and gassed it as soon as I got traction

That all happened in like half a second, 10 years ago in the same situation, I would have totally crashed

Good going. Did you win any cash?

I've always enjoyed playing pool, and have played on and off for decades. I've recently entered a local league of 32 players and I look forward to a best of 11 frames match every week.

It's so good to be able to get some match practice in and the satisfying thing is that my match play is visibly and steadily improving week by week.

I've always been able to pot balls and had a fairly good idea how to get the white ball to do what I want it to, but I enjoy the challenge of playing against other players of a good standard. It forces me to raise my own game. The best players in the league are so consistent and their positional play is really good and highly accurate. That's definitely something I need to keep practicing, but I'm getting better at develpoing unpottable balls into pottable positions as I string a few pots together. I love it. There's no doubt that I will be a much better match player at the end of the 32 week first round matches, and it's good to get out of the house and work on my social skills a bit too.

We play Blackball rules, I like them, but still not 100% on the rules for every scenario, but am getting there.

Yeah, I like pool. Didn't play for almost 10 years and bet three mates that I'd beat them all with no practice

Beat two of the three, and enjoy playing a few nights of the week now since

Inconsistency is my weakness, but really it's due to a defective attention span; I may 7 ball the best player in town and then lose to the worst player next game

Nice 5 ball runout to win today though, felt good
