Avatar 10:33pm Mod Mokka Matti:

As someone who grew up involved with gardening (and still am), I find myself in a quandary at times, dealing with what may be considered more harmful representatives of the insect population. If everything has a defined function in the ecosystem, then who am I to deny the continued existence of that being? Yet, if the situation isn't mitigated, it could become a greater problem. I try to be as benign in my management as possible, while promoting the overall health of the garden I'm stewarding. I certainly have one of the epicenters of local bee activity here in the summers, and do what I can to avoid harming them, in particular.

MMM i have felt that way. by the time i was a teenager i wouldn't kill anything unless it was actively sucking, stinging, biting or being a parasite.
the truth i came to learn, once i started gardening, as you know, is that the insects that are a problem became a problem because of human interference. yellow jackets, japanese beetles, slugs, potato beetles, squash beetles, gypsy moths...(etc etc) so i justify my saving my garden, other people's gardens, and potentially the well-being of myself and others.
i hate killing them and i suffer spiritually for doing it, but i feel i have to.

...i feel like the war i've waged on my sister's 3 acres on yellow jackets and japanese beetles has resulted in a much much more diverse insect and bird population there and for her neighbors, who are beekeepers. the difference over the past 6 years is obvious. lots of bees and non-asshole wasps. probably 1/200th the number of yellow jackets.

This is crazy good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02pm ultradamno:

This sounds like a score for a movie about hunting elves that look like kraftwerk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm Mr. Pumpy:

The background music sounds like Ennio Morricone's Hateful Eight score. Looped. Mobius Thorax.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05pm Handy Haversack:

Night, @TDK60. May your thorax always be sufficient for the level of dress.

It's all in the attitude, @Jay Gilbert.
  11:05pm N. Ron Hubble:

Don Harper - Dank Earth (2014). It’s amazing what turns up in Shazam these days.
  11:06pm Metalfunkel:

Wait, do you mean to imply Kraftwerk are not already elves? This is nuts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:06pm chresti:

Goodnight TDK60.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm ParUbi:

Well, machine elves are still elves, after all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm Mr. Pumpy:

@Enron...that's what is playing now?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09pm ultradamno:

I thought they were robots...robot elves, sure, but...

  11:09pm Metalfunkel:

all Kraftwerk cover band: "Machine Elves". Anybody play bass?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm Mr. Pumpy:

Ya ya...just checked it. I wish it was on wax.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm Mr. Pumpy:

I'll play bass in Machine Elves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm Handy Haversack:

By this logic, we have to let all elves have oil. I am uncomfortable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm chresti:

I think there were/are elves in the Santa Cruz mountains.

Mr.P @ 10.50 (i went and cooked something)
-i know that was a joke! ..but i think that figure is very low. 4 years ago there were at least 2 big nests -thousands of wasps each; entering or leaving the nest at a rate of 1-2/second; and 3-4 smaller ones -probably having hundreds or maybe 1-2 thousand yellowjackets in each. last summer there was only one small one -maybe a couple hundred wasps.

....thousands of honey bees -which i could work amidst without incident.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm ParUbi:

I spotted an elf earlier today. He's new to lifting.
  11:15pm Metalfunkel:

Elf programs his own computer. Beams himself into the future.

Do elves eat termites?
Avatar 11:15pm coelacanth∅:

gnight TDK

someone needs to make a track so badass that Daniel HAS TO play it...and call it "thorax"
  11:15pm N. Ron Hubble:

It’s on vinyl https://www.discogs.com/Don-Harper-Cold-Worlds/release/5825833 (is that spam?) so, err .. getchyer ya yas out and buy buy buy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16pm Handy Haversack:

@Metalfunkel, PLEASE let that be the setup for an amazing joke.
Avatar 11:16pm coelacanth∅:

chresti -you mean, aside from termite elves?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm Mr. Pumpy:

@N. Ron...cool. Didn't find it for some reason. I was on discogs and some thorax must have disc-blocked me.
  11:18pm Jay Gilbert:

Elves? Holves? Thorelves?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm Daniel Blumin:

N. Ron, I'm just glad me voice didn't get in the way!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm Mr. Pumpy:

Elves in the Holveroom
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm Handy Haversack:

Elvax of Thorholve.
  11:21pm Metalfunkel:

but of course it's a take on the coldly-technical yet beautiful "Home Computer" from Kraftwerk's Computerworld. "Beam myself into the future." They predicted all of this crap.
  11:21pm N. Ron Hubble:

Just as you started speaking, it came up with “sending”. The suspense was incredible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm chresti:

Haha coel.

Take a knee ****forgive old guffys thumbs.! Hope the instructions were easy enough.
Avatar 11:26pm Franco Twinkie:

Okay, let me think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm Handy Haversack:

Yeah, now we have this whole bluebird issue. Like they're even blue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm ultradamno:

Molting, dude. Feathers don't shed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm Mr. Pumpy:

Ornithrax. Bird bodies...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm Mr. Pumpy:

This track is insane! Turns to gold!!!!
Avatar 11:28pm coelacanth∅:

it's just the chlorophyll in their feathers that make them look blue. as soon as they stop with the photosynthesis they turn crazy colors.
Avatar 11:29pm Billy Jam:

this song - along with "Rappers Delight" - is among contemporary music's greatest songs
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm Handy Haversack:

I thought it was because they had horseshoe crabs for blood.
Avatar 11:29pm Franco Twinkie:

For a short time, I had an owl. It lived on the screen porch. It would eat chicks and mice then throw up feathers and bones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30pm ultradamno:

Birds are just honked off all the time 'cause they used to be dinosaurs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30pm Handy Haversack:

Never trust anyone over 265,000,000 years old!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm Mr. Pumpy:

Billy...ha! Agreed. Cuz they catchy!
Avatar 11:32pm coelacanth∅:

Handy H yes you might be right. i once got a case of horseshoe crabs from a transfusion and they said it was bird blood.

Sugar Bird Thorax is the first ambient rap group to put out a single.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:34pm Handy Haversack:

@coel, you can't keep going back to those salt-water transfusionists. You know how they are. Everything's a chemical, they say. Well, sure, but what about biology?
Avatar 11:35pm coelacanth∅:

i just put my faith in Thorax
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm Handy Haversack:

I didn't mention this earlier, but Gary Gygax was also a JW. Thorax connection?!?!
Avatar 11:37pm Franco Twinkie:

I though you were just saying something nutty, Coel, then I looked up horse shoe crabs. Oh my!
Avatar 11:39pm coelacanth∅:

Franco the last transfusion i had, about 3 this afternoon, they used chipmunk blood. i might be saying something nutty.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40pm Handy Haversack:

Did you go in just saying that you had a corn?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm Daniel Blumin:

Heya, Marley D! I hope you are oscillating comfortably!
Avatar 11:43pm coelacanth∅:

i *did* have some corn; but no i went in for a pedicure.
this seems to always happen.
Avatar 11:44pm coelacanth∅:

(and my nails still look like shit)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45pm Handy Haversack:

Sometimes the pedicure is worse than the pedidisease .
Avatar 11:45pm coelacanth∅:

hahaha
Avatar 11:48pm Franco Twinkie:

I just remembered something: When I was a youngster, the kid across the street came over in total panic and told me there was a giant bug in the gutter in front of his house. I went to investigate and it turned out to me a crab. We puzzled over it and then I went back inside to watch TV. The only reasonable explanation for it been there was his older sisters boyfriend was a surfer and would sleep in car in front of their house. I think he brought it from the beach.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm Handy Haversack:

Would def. be an unterthorax in that German army. Great track!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54pm chresti:

Isn't there a Dr, Seuss character named Thorax?
