    That’s beautiful.

    Considering the European history of abusing European ethnic minorities of immigrants in other European countries, it’s way past time y’all did a little self-examination on that score. Especially since a lot of the newer minorities are people of color from your former colonies. Denying people their ethnic heritage the second they leave a country (often out of duress) is nativism at absolute best and xenophobia at worst.

    This one does (I used to live in Scotland).

    I believe you can still use them, but they’re awkward. FYI, I have a landline with two current extensions that I use and one that I don’t. As long as you have the wall connections set up, you can set up several (though there’s a limit before they charge you extra).

    Hey, when one can chase the turtle across the road, all the better (those little Eastern Box Turtles can really book it). The ones around here, though, tend to sit on the center line and get wussy when too many cars go past. So, sometimes, they require an assist (when it’s safe to for the driver).

    I help snapping turtles (and other turtle species) across the road when I can. It is possible to grab the smaller ones under the carapace near the rear and quickly boost them to the side they were aiming for. For the bigger ones, I use my mom’s old walking cane. I offer them the foam-covered handle end, they grab on, and I drag ’em to safety. Either that, or I shove them while I get hissed at. The most, uh, interesting time was when I had to do that on an on-ramp to the freeway.

    FYI, you really don’t want to hit a snapping turtle with your car, especially the big old females. They can do a lot of damage to your undercarriage.
