Stupid squirrel

We have a stupid squirrel in our yard. It was about 3 feet up a tree, and the dogs spotted it, and rather than running up the tree, the squirrel ran around it and around it. Bad decision, because that kept it right around dog jaw height. After 3 times round, Hope was inches behind and closing, and Cassie was bearing down with the angle to cut it off, and the squirrel finally figured it out and headed up.

Then, not 10 seconds after the dogs lost interest, with them not more than 5 feet away, it headed back down to sit on the ground and finish off the nut it was working on. Hope you really enjoyed that nut, squirrel.

Why blog when somebody else writes stuff like this?

Failures « The Poor Man Institute:

"Can I make a tactical suggestion? If you find the Center for Advanced Study in Terror Arts and Sciences where Mr. Shazad received the technical training which led him to build a “bomb” out of bottle rockets and Miracle-Gro, and then gave him the operational training such that he was somehow incapable of setting fire to fucking gasoline, please do not do anything which would lead to any disruption of classes. I’ll give you a moment to let that sink in. If anything, the US government should be making sure they have the best facilities and most attractive campus for training people how to fail six different ways at terrorizing anyone."
