    I like to put crackers or pretzels out for the grackles to watch how they deal with them. Usually the alpha male tries to eat all of the stash, and they defend it so fiercely against anyone else (including their own harem of females) that the hens have figured out a dodge of their own. One will pretend to try and take a piece near where Mr Bigshot is standing, and he’ll lay into her, and while he’s distracted all the others will sneak in from behind and take their fill.

    Haven’t watched long enough to see if the females take turns being the decoy, but it wouldn’t surprise me.

    Perhaps the actual origin of the word “cork”. I’ve heard that the word “blimp” was coined by someone who pinched and released the skin of a zeppelin and noticed that that’s what it sounded like.

    That is exactly how Sudoku works, for those of us with OCD.

    Wait till he tells them about Dialing For Dollars. They had a cut-up phone book (what’s that?) and drew someone’s number out of a drum (what about people who weren’t listed?) during a break in a cheap afternoon movie, let it ring ten times (who would ever do that?) and if you answered you had to know the count and the amount (you actually had to be watching the movie at the time it was on?).

    I just realized that people in twelve-step programs have it easy.

    I was driving once and a bird was pacing me alongside, in flight, before stopping on top of a post without any swaying back and forth. Totally stuck the landing. To this day I wish I’d had cards with numbers on them that I could have held up to give him his score.

    If I sit it goes straight up. Heck with that noise.

    I keep meaning to make a model of Stonehenge but with bagels instead of stones. I haven’t decided whether I could do it as a miniature and just use Cheerios.
