I have an RV in the backyard that I will eventually be moving into and there is a family dog in the back that I want nothing to do with, anyone have any recommendations for an ultrasonic emitter that I can clip onto my belt so I can keep it from bothering me every time I come home from work or when I need to get something from the main house? I already asked about having the dog moved to the front yard and that isn’t an option.

If I remember correctly, he was pointing out oir strengths without the obvious tech advancements we made this millennia. Anything greater than 30,000 b.c. farming equiptment and a spear are off limits for showing off how OP people are
>>
>>2998191
He still fails to mention the significance of fire, which is extremely vital to humanity to becoming superior or OP. Spear use predates humanity, as well as fire & clothing. Heck even for flying stinging insects, a simple counter is a thick layer of mud on the body.

How so?

Found this little dude outside chilling next to my trashbins, he has been there for a few hours now.
It shows no fear and obviously I'm going to leave it alone for now. But at what point should I worry about the well being of it?

PUT HIM BACK, it will cry when it's hungry and it's parents will feed it

put it back jesus fucking christ, birds leave the nest before flying its called fledging
>>
>>2997814
>>2997853
Oh, it's that time of the year again. Every spring we see cross-boarders trying to save baby birds. Sometimes it makes me wish we had a sticky that says 1) not to touch wild baby animals that have their parents around, and 2) if your pet is sick, take it to the vet.

Anyway, I don't recognise the exact species but that's definitely a fledgling that's recently left its nest quite on purpose. I can understand you had good intentions and felt worried about the bird. Fledglings look helpless, and they are in fact extremely vulnerable until they learn to fly and feed themselves. But that's how things are supposed to be. Birds this age should be left alone so their parents can take care of them. And you mentioned its parents are still nearby, so there was no reason to take the baby.
Please put it back and hope the parents are still close by.
>>
>>2998168
Did just that usually i wouldnt consider touching them but the cats in this area would have just torn him up, i closed him up in a safe garden area not in that box don't worry. He ate a few insects that i left on plate and he was released a few hours ago. Just like you said he was already good with flight at this time.
>>
>>2998197
Good to hear he can fly; fledglings can be pretty awkward until their feathers grow a bit longer, so I was uncertain how coordinated he might be at this point. Hope he'll do okay.
I can understand feeling worried for young birds that have just left the nest. Even though I know perfectly well they should be left alone, it's hard not to feel concern for them when they bumble around in areas with all kinds of hazards.

I like Bonsai's so lets talk about them! Post anything you've got, something you've been working on or even some prebonsai

I've been keeping my eye out for a nice specimen to dig up and begin working with. But I live in an urban area. I wish there was a farmer around her who's land I could look around on.

I have a few questions concerning bonsai trees.
1. How difficult are they to take care of?
2. Is there such thing as a beginner bonsai tree?
3. How long do they take to grow?
4. Do they require direct sunlight? It would be chilling in my room, and I only have one window, and nowhere to put it that would have a direct contact.

>I have a few questions concerning bonsai trees.
>1. How difficult are they to take care of?
Some are quite easy, others difficult. All will require near daily attention, however. It's like a dog, if you go away for a week, someone needs to come and take care of it daily.
>2. Is there such thing as a beginner bonsai tree?
Yes, maples are probably the easiest. Many people start with these.
>3. How long do they take to grow?
5 to 500 years.
>4. Do they require direct sunlight? It would be chilling in my room, and I only have one window, and nowhere to put it that would have a direct contact.
Most do best outdoors and benefit a esthetically from the stimulus and stress of being exposed to the elements. Amount of direct sunlight depends on the species.

Update: juniper also a good beginner bonsai.

>>2998165

Looked up maple and juniper, but it seems like they both require being outdoors. Any suggestions for indoors, with a small amount of sunlight, or am I just sol?

not sure but I'd guess you can get $3 million in insurance for less than $65. If not, well they can probably take a loss on shipping at that price. Or put the liability on the buyer.
