    It’s possible to have fun at the beach?! While the beach ain’t my thing and I’d much rather read than… umm… whatever it is that people do at beaches, the beach is a horrific place to read. While she might be OK under an umbrella, trying to read at the beach without an umbrella or sunglasses is a good way to be temporarily blinded.

    Perhaps that’s true at times, but I have seen plenty that definitely do trigger the walk signal – unpressed, the walk never signal never comes on at all. Nowadays you’ll also occasionally see mid-block, pedestrian-only signals – crosswalks that are not at an intersection at all, and for which traffic is stopped only after the button has been pressed.

    If you have any mulch left, Alice, you can try throwing that at the wasp.

    Lifetime driving ban to those who don’t use their turn signals, and a can of spray paint down the throat of graffiti “artists”.

    Regardless, it’s a pity. Not all that long ago (during my parents’ lifetime), Europe was tearing itself apart in the most devastating war in human history. Today, most of Europe has a form of shared governance. Yes, the E.U. has significant flaws, but in my view the overall benefits outweigh the drawbacks (for Europe as a whole and for the U.K. as an individual member). And Brexit could be the beginning of the E.U.’s end. Pity.

    If you want to get an unrivaled view of the game action, stay at home and watch it on TV. If you want to get an unrivaled, spectacular view of the world, then sit on the stadium lights (assuming, of course, that you’re not one of those ghastly stadiums that are in the middle of nowhere). These two seats look absolutely amazing.

    From the look of her eyes, it appears that the ring is squirting acid.

    And how long did it take for your legs to fall asleep?

    With that wingspan to body size ratio I’d be a bit under-confident as well.

    Most dogs aren’t able to read plats of survey to determine the precise limits of their owner’s property. While some dogs will bark as an invitation (“come say ‘hello!’”), most are trying to chase away a threat. The barking is reinforced because it always works – the “threat” always goes away in the end. To a dog, their “territory” may be limited to the area that’s in close proximity to their home, but for many dogs it’s the entirety of their normal walking pattern – walk them within their neighborhood, and any unknown person and/or dog in that ‘hood is a threat; walk that same dog someplace new, and they don’t mind anybody. And, though most people complain the most about the “little yappers,” dogs of any size are liable to bark when they see a threat. It’s just that pretty much everything in the world is a threat when you’re 4" tall.
