Could be worse, a friend of mine who lives near the Queensland/NSW border was bitten on the forehead by a python that had set up house in a space above his front door and his walking out that door must have frightened it. It's that time of year when snakes look for comfy hibernation holes. He called the snake catcher who wasn't keen on chasing a python in a roofspace, saying it would probably move on in its own time, fat lot of help he was.

^^^ But what if I want to visit?!?! paul-mccartneya-hard-days-night-paul-10

Canadian wildlife isn't always particularly polite either, ya know. a-hard-days-night-george-10 Bears, moose, deer, bobcats, skunks, wasps, hornets, black widow spiders; there's a lot of potentially harmful critters (though yours are definitely worse a-hard-days-night-ringo-12).

I remember one day in about 5th or 6th grade, I was going home for lunch, and was just about to head up the front steps of my house. Suddenly, a coyote strolls non-chalantly out of the path to our backyard (which goes around to the front yard, close to the front steps). It was cool and all to see one, though I wouldn't recommend being 5-6 feet from one that doesn't seem to fear you at all whatsoever. Fortunately, they don't attack people very often.a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Yes, thank god we don't have bears, although given we went through that settler frontier culture (and some of our farmers still think they are), we probably would have shot them all 40 years ago. But then we've added wild pigs, goats, horses, camels, and a variety of smaller vermin to the ecosystem, so there's that. People go pig/roo-shooting here (not in the cities, that might be unfortunate) and the really crazy ones try to kill them with bows and arrows. There's definitely a core of frustrated hunters around.

The most vicious wildlife around here are....

badgers.

 

Don't piss off a badger! If you hit them with your car they make a considerable dent as well. Just....stay away from badgers.

@Ron Nasty said on March 18

 Ron Nasty said earlier than that
You will be receiving a PM within the next few hours, @WeepingAtlasCedars. It's more-or-less done, just reading through and tweaking to make sure it's right.  

Unfortunately, this has been delayed as a result of feeling the need to respond a post you made yesterday. Feeling the need to address the situation in full following your post, I spent nearly two hours writing that response, rather than finalising my PM to you, and haven't felt able to get back your PM today. I will return to it tomorrow and send my reply.
It was around five in the morning I got to sleep yesterday. It's now 2:30 in the morning, and I'm going to try to get to sleep a little earlier tonight.

Surely not for the northern hemisphere? Remember, here its the local state government that decides when DST starts and stops and it's been a wild ride the last few years for us.

Oh! I thought it was a universally agreed upon date, and any states/countries wishing to use it could.

DST has always been a political football, from the time it was first introduced. Because the states in Australia are sovereign (meaning, they have more original independence than a US state would have), it's usually decided by the Premier's department.

Please note that the artists represented here are in no way ranked in order of importance, favouritism, or anything like that (except for the fact that the Pink Floyd one is at the top a-hard-days-night-george-10 nah, just kidding). (The poster on the right is an oldie but goldie, a last-year's birthday present from a mate of mine, and my favourite thing about it is the luxurious eye-candy that the giant Les Paul provides ahdn_john_08_gif)
