Should we be concerned that it's been 3 hours with no word back from our dear friend?

Don't worry, the bat has not killed me.

...

Anyway: After I posted this yesterday, I kept the window open, turned out the light and closed the bathroom door so that the bat can fly out. After 15 minutes I looked in again and the bat seemed to have gone because I didn't spot it anymore.

Today, when I got back in the bat was still there and sleeping on one of my curtains.

I decided to put on some thicker working gloves, took it and put it out in the open. The bat seemed to be a bit perplexed because it wouldn't fly away (maybe it was still half asleep) and tried to bite and hiss like a cat. I decided to put it on a tree outside the house.



Please tell me you are not being serious. That's terrifying.

how to remove a bat from a room ?

Because I wanted to brush my teeth a few minutes ago and somehow a bat was flying around in the baathroom.

I always keep the window open so that the shower dries up quickly and the bat must gave come in at some point.

Its a very stubborn bat and I can't catch it and it wont fly out of the window.

Advice anyone ?

When my neighbor had a bat locked in her bathroom, she sent the house cat in after it. It worked, but the vet bill for rabies shots was pretty expensive.

The correct answer in the U.S. is to call animal control, FWIW. Because of rabies.

What in God's name do you have against hoodies? They're qute utilitarian, something every American should appreciate. Shaming people for wearing them because someone happened to get shot while in them is downright absurd, and I recommend getting a quick checkup at the nearest mental institution.



hoodies are for thugs

look, he's even in detention

He called the Ferguson protesters apes.

I was the person who deleted his posts. First, the one where he suggested hoses be turned on the protesters and their bodies tazed. Second, the one post-deletion where he clarified that he was serious -- he really wanted the "apes" hosed and tazed.

You can easily ban the act of smoking in public or in the presence of other people while still making marijuana legal for the public to consume in the privacy of their own homes.

The problem is many of these sheriff's departments are defining "probably cause" as "has a Colorado license plate".

I had dinner with my family in Denver this summer and they were complaining about this. "Just because we're from Colorado, they think it's okay to pull us over."

I'm guessing that the powers that be in the white-run, black-majority town of Ferguson probably don't react too well to black folk who seek office.

You'll need to be far more specific when you say "the media."

As it turns out, the War on Terror here within the United States border really isn't that kind of war. So, you know, unless we're worried about a mass invasion starting in the midwest for some reason, we can probably do away with the tanks and camo when it comes to the local police.

I definitely prefer the Los Angeles restaurant scene to New York's. It's a much more experimental and creative city, plus there are plenty more options when it comes to trying to eat healthy.

Steals cigars and candy from a convenience store, physically threatens the owner... SHOOT HIM TO DEATH

Yes, I'm... not sure how that one works either. But then Harry is a Mississippi Whitey.

Never mind all the civil rights abuses that have happened in the town over the protests since, either.

You guys don't even know the pure apathy that is Braum's marketing. They literally still run ads like this on the teevee, and their website looked like this... in 2012. Everything about the place is twenty years outdated.
How dare they. How dare Braum's spend 30 seconds extolling the tastiness of their peaches on ice cream, rather than showing 30 seconds of furred arteries and heart attack victims followed by a message of "Now come to Braum's! There's an indifference to coronary problems at Braum's you'll enjoy!"

Honestly, for all the free market talk in the US, there seems often to be a ludicrous degree of nanny-statism amongst individual Americans that's unreal. Braum's are gonna sell Braum's. It isn't for Braum's to sell the health effects; it's for every individual to take 2 seconds to think before they order the double cheeseburger for the seventh lunch that week "Hmm, I'm grotesquely fat; might this double cheeseburger make me fatter?"

Someone who eats daily at Braum's doesn't wind up 21 or 22 stone through the wickedness of capitalism - at least not in the modern media era where diet information is a fingertip away - they do so because of their own choices.

Braum's gonna sell cheeseburgers. Your solution doesn't lie in tying Braum's hands behind their backs, but in making fat slobs realise, as anyone with two braincells realises, nutritional value and weight loss lies elsewhere.

I think the point sailed way over your head. The commercial isn't notable because an ice cream store is promoting ice cream. It's notable because the production values of the commercial are piss poor. Everything about the commercial suggests it was made in the year 1990, from the tone of the announcer to the graphics and transitions used.

Not only have police arrested journalists, but they also fired tear gas directly at them.

Bushie have you considered botox injections for your headaches? I'm back in Texas and watching TV, and they have all these advertisements here that you don't see when you watch shows on your computer, and one of them is for botox injections for people with chronic headaches. The website is: botoxchronicmigraine.com.

I have not considered that, yet.  To me that's a last resort if they become completely uncontrollable.  They're not to that point, yet, thankfully.

Why is a legitimate medical treatment a "last resort" to you? You know it's not the same type of injections people get for cosmetic reasons, yes?

If you've been missing work due to your headaches, they're seriously impacting your life. You should talk to your doctor about them and get his opinion.

My boss gets regular botox treatments for his headaches. From what I've heard, it's pretty effective.

No, I haven't. I've always kind of wanted to try it out of morbid curiosity, but have no idea how to even go about that.

I tend to think it should be legal and regulated in a way comparable to alcohol and cigarettes.

Colorado is a lovely state to vacation in.

I thought the people on this show were supposed to be fats?

Who would watch a show filled with fat people? Most people on Big Brother are incredibly attractive and well built. Christine exists to fit the "nerdy girl" quota.

Yes. Big Brother, much like update, is a bizarre social experiment that you want to look away from, but can't.
