Let’s Go Hunting

It is the weekend and I will be spending time doing stuff other than worrying about a nation that could care less.

In my younger days I was a hunter….mostly to help my family supplement meat for the table….when I went to the woods I would take three rounds….one in the rifle and two in my pocket….for I was taught to stalk and shoot only when you were sure of a kill…..

There are always stories of disasters committed by hunters….like shooting a family member or killing a farm animals by mistake….first how do you mistake a cow for a deer?

If you can’t then you do NOT belong in the woods with a gun.

This is where I pick up the meat of this post……

A hunter shot and seriously injured a hiker near St. Louis, Missouri, on Saturday, with police stating that the hunter mistook the man for a turkey. “It sounds like it was just a really bad accident,” a police spokesperson said, with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporting that it came on the second-to-last day of spring turkey hunting season. The Missouri Department of Conservation was running the hunt, and a sign near the entrance to the Lewis and Clark Trail warned that would be held until 1pm; the shooting occurred at 12:30pm, NBC News reports. Emergency responders had to use a utility vehicle to reach the unidentified hiker, who was airlifted to a nearby trauma center. He and the hunter remain unidentified.

The hunter was dressed in camouflage, and witnesses did not report whether the hiker was wearing bright colors. “It may have been an accident, but it is positively unforgivable that they allow people to hunt with firearms on Mother’s Day weekend on one of the most heavily traveled trails,” a local runner who uses the trail told the Post-Dispatch. “They need to mark that differently. There were families out there today with kids and dogs.”

This illustrates my point….this idiot does not belong in the woods armed with a gun….apparently he had NO idea what he was shooting….and he pulled the trigger anyway.

I cannot take my canine friend to the woods during hunting season for she is fawn color with a short tail with white on it….she looks like a white tail deer to morons.

Plus I do not trust many of the low IQ in-bred slugs with guns in our woods.

Another reason I do all my hunting at the nearest supermarket…..get all the meat I want without the mess….and most times it is a lot safer as well.

All This Superficiality!

Body image is tied to a persons self-worth.

Too many waste money on trying to fit into yoga pants(only a handful actually look good in this trend not matter how much gym time they put in).

They exercise their butts, abs and legs and yet they neglect the most important muscle in the body…..the brain.

Now that the so-called ‘lockdown’ is being removed…the superficiality is once again the most important thing in life…..this time it is not the gym but rather the dentist.

It might be too late to learn a new language before returning to the workplace, but many people are hurrying to have their teeth straightened after months of staring at themselves on Zoom calls. One New York orthodontist said new inquiries have risen 50% since fall. And the owner of Invisalign clear aligners said the number of people starting treatment in the first quarter was up 69% from a year before, the Wall Street Journal reports. “Typically, what motivates adults is a special event,” said an executive at a competitor. The special event in this case is the end of the pandemic lockdown. “People have been holed up,” he said. “They’re starting to have reveals or reunions with co-workers or family members.” The CDC decided anyone who’s been vaccinated doesn’t usually need to wear a mask outdoors, but in this context, masks serve another purpose: hiding a mouthful of braces.

There’s been more grinding of teeth—often affected by stress—during the pandemic, per US News & World Report. An American Dental Association survey found that of 70% of dentists reported an increase in the number of patients who’ve been grinding and clenching their teeth, a 10% jump since fall. That can lead to straightening efforts, as well. One patient went ahead with aligners when her dentist told her she’d need to wear a retainer or night guard to protect from the grinding. Patients say the nuisance of the treatments is easier to deal with when stuck at home anyway. “I have the time to do it, I’m at home, I’m not seeing people,” said a man in Los Angeles. Some people have themselves on a tight schedule. A woman in Michigan started her treatment last summer. “I’ll be done two days before my bachelorette party,” she said.

Come on….this is about appearance and nothing else…..stop pretending it is about health.

It is a shame that body image is more important aspect of one’s life…..whether the yoga pants look good or it your teeth are straight…..

Use your mind for something other than a source of a headache.

If my appearance is all there is to life then I’ll take vanilla!
