Chickens... they will eat anything that has any nutritional value.

THE 2ND AMENDMENT / Re: Green tip 5.56 has been banned, We're all felons.

The point is that a typical deer round in .30-06 will penetrate a 1/4" steel plate... so is that "armor piercing"?  The anti gunners like to act like the pro gun people are being unreasonable when in reality the anti gunners either understand nothing about guns or they know they can outlaw everything if they are vague enough.

>so I took MB's advise and buried the head. 

I think you misunderstood.  The whole thing will rot quickly in the ground.  I wouldn't leave it too long, but it will smell horrible if you dig it up soon... a dilemma...

I use 1/2" CDX as well. If it didn't hurt me to move 3/4" sheets around, I'd use 3/4" CDX.  Of course there is no 3/4".  Once they found out they could sell us a two by four that was 1 1/2" by 3 1/2" they started on the plywood.  Now a 3/4" sheet is really 23/32"... before you know it a 3/4" sheet of plywood will be 1/2" (16/32").  They just have to keep stealing it 1/32" at a time...

In my location they never seem to be in the mood to raise queens until there are drones flying.  Earlier never pays.

I thought the endless maze behind the stage where the drummer so seamlessly lead us from one area to another until he finally shows up in the scene himself was done well, and the scene leading onto the street too.


So that was it drummer until Birdman showed up.... told you I was lost.... still don't get it. Thought it was hugely distracting. I guess i am too simple minded  :wink: I would asked about the end but it would ruin it for those that want to see it.

Odd movie indeed. To think Michael Corleone got old and turned into this whack job.

I think they did an admirable job at sluicing between theater and reality (or their versions of either) every time you walked on or off stage, you got to feel the pancake makeup and smoke and mirrors that is Broadway . The audience sees something soooo different than those behind the scenes and if nothing else in this - I think they tried hard to both enunciate and blur the differences of those worlds and how to a once B-list actor/super hero, turned wannabee theater actor, those worlds can sometimes have the thinnest of curtains between them.

I thought the endless maze behind the stage where the drummer so seamlessly lead us from one area to another until he finally shows up in the scene himself was done well, and the scene leading onto the street too.

I too couldn't watch a ton of this style movie, but it was good to see some thinking OUT SIDE of the box of Hollywood films.

The rule is you want your drones to be developed far enough in their brood cell to have purple eyes. If your neighbors, at about a mile away, have drones with at least purple eyes when you start to graph, they will be old enough to breed with your queens.
