    Statistics are just Fancy Numbers 

    This article makes some interesting comments about the state of statistics in America today. Key point: feral cats do not kill 1 billion birds a year in the US.

      Ha, that is great. I just wrote an e-mail to a friend making very similar points about how dubious the statistics that are presented in various forms of media are. Without reviewing the source materials to determine the methodology used in the study it is very difficult to determine how accurate or valid they are.

      Cats are awful. I’m gonna continue to believe all the negative stats i hear about them.

    Killing Cats for a Living, Financially Viable? 

    Things I Learned Today – Friday, November 21, 2008

    One of my major pet peeves is when a person says “I want” instead of “I would like” or “may I please have.” I find this incredibly rude and presumptuous of the persons in question that their wants and desires are so very much more important than civility and common courtesy. I have lapsed a little in my writing, probably because I haven’t taken a day off in almost three weeks, and every day has run together into one long work day. This is probably why the rude customers that claim to “want” rather than “would like” have gotten so much more on my nerves.

    This is the test. Will I continue with this online diary, or will I give up in defeat? It has been almost two weeks since my last entry, but I feel that one sentence every two days is a pretty good pace. It’s better than not writing at all. Right now I am sitting at a YMCA in Bellingham, watching racquetball. I can’t participate in anything fun, but in about one more week I should be able to risk it. I have been able to do a few pushups here and there, mostly on my knees. Tomorrow I will sign my paperwork for my new apartment in Bellingham and drop off a few resumes. Maybe I will get a job and be able to pay for school. I have been working every day for the last three weeks, but that is mostly just to pay off my medical bills and the new bike I haven’t ridden yet. It is really pretty though. (More …)

      Sorry the cat thing didn’t work out, man. I’m sure there’s another get rich scheme out there that’s going to be just perfect for you.

      This triggers my memory to pull up some rarely used information. I can think of at least 3 sites in Boise where some obviously crazy person(s) has been setting out cat food and water for those soulless creatures.

      One site is disgusting in its lack of modesty. I swear I could net at least 15 cats. I wish this pogrom would make its way West.

      Ps.

      This entry was hilarious.

      and

      Why not catching cats for the sake of adventure and the sheer joy of putting a cat in a bag? The economic question is important but doesnt begin to highlight to the ecstasy of a beer fueled cat round up. Consider it spending money…still gotta keep that day job.

      Perhaps we could organize a TSJ road trip back east for some cat hunting?

      We could catch ’em for the pure enjoyment, and to finance our trip, we turn them in for the bounty.
