      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Well, I thought maybe I was dreaming last night when I heard some different kinds of noises coming from somewhere out in the woods, around 0130. But it looks like my suspicions are confirmed. Great..... :P

From your linky...

 

"There is no closed season on coyotes in Florida. Legal methods of take are by gun, bow or snare. Steel traps and hunting at night with a light can be conducted only by special permit issued by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, and use of poisons to kill coyotes is illegal."

 

Might be a prob for you getting a hunting license, let alone the night/light permit bein' an undocumented alien and all :ph34r:

 

Trust me, nobody in Florida, well except our own gaytor, will mind if you kill a 'yote or three.

Boothy -

 

If you see a coyote - blast it. Don't think - just do it. My neighbor lost calves - and I've given my son instruction that when I'm not home to grab the .30-.30 or my 12 gauge outta the gun safe and blast any of 'em he sees. You don't want the pack gettin' comfy at your place - our kids and pets won't be safe from bein' bothered.

 

Oh yeah - after a while - the bugs will leave ya alone - 'cause you'll start to smell like someone from there, and not someone from off somewheres. :-)

cigars, constantly lit - are also a help.

It comes & goes but I'm guessing there's been at least an inch and a half of it already today. Which is about a fifth of what Hell-A gets in a year. But at least it's a warm rain so my twenty two day streak of wearing shorts and go-heads is still going DiMaggio strong.

9). The fuking DMV told me that I need to produce my original S/S card before I can get a driver's license. Which would be fine.....except that I haven't seen it since the late 70's. Add to that that they also wanna see my original birth certificate (yes, the long form one), which is another document I can't find. And it also doesn't help that not only did my Kali drivers license expire back in November, but my passport did also---3 days ago.

 

1. Renew your passport

2. Use new passport to do all that other crap.

 

Or take the opportunity to change your name to Skink and run for governator.

I'll pitch in to buy him an orange jump suit and shower cap

Supply vessel in the Gulf of Mexico.

 

Actually we're a deep well stimulation vessel. Basically a floating roto-rooter. Large pumps sending acid, sand, mixed fluids down the well to clean it and stimulate the fluids in the drill well to come up the piping. the boat is chartered by Halliburton for various oil companies but run by us.

Since I don't have a fishing licence yet ('cuz I basically still have no fuking legit ID, aside from a datec photo of me in a newspaper from '75), I just went for a ride and sat back and learned how to catch the elusive Blue Crab of Big Bend. It's really complicated, probably harder than fly fishing for Golden trout in the High Sierras. But in a nutshell, here's how you do it;

 

1). Tie one rotten raw chicken leg to a piece of clothes line. Toss it waaaay the fuk out into the canal---five, six feet will do.

 

2). Pop open a Busch.

 

3). Knock back three big gulps.

 

4). Put beer down, slowly pull in clothes line, keeping an eye on rotten chicken leg. Blue crab should be hanging on, munching away.

 

5). Snag hungry crab with six foot long scoop net. Put crab in ice chest, finish beer.

 

6). Wash, rinse, drink, repeat. Again. And again. And again......

That chickenleg method brings back a lot of memories of when I was young lass.

Isn't the water clear enough around those parts to wade with the net and scoop the fuckers up, thus bypassing the chicken dance? Just drag the cooler (attach those swim noodles around the outside of it) behind you so your not too far from your beer.

Some may have missed the critical part of this procedure. The chicken must be rotten. Green and stinky. I learned this one frustrating day on a bridge, watching the people next to us haul in crab after crab on their stinky chicken while our fresh chicken sat on the bottom, uneaten.

 

When they got enough and prepared to leave, they took pity and gave us the gift of stinky, green chicken. We caught a buttload of crabs. Then I spilled the crab bucket, causing a scene that was funny beyond my ability to describe it.

Little-known blue crab fact: when you go to the Chesapeake area to eat their famous blue crabs, there is a fair chance that the crabs you eat were caught by the Peace River Seafood Company right here in Punta Gorda. Our harbor has way more than we could eat.

Very similar critters. They come up into fresh water to spawn. This is the neighbor kid, who sometimes catches them in the creek and puts them in my pond. They get pretty big in there. The only thing in the pond that will kill them is a bigger blue crab.

Yep. Either there,Central America or Indonesia. Canned crab is almost never "native" Chesapeake crab. With pretty tight restrictions on the Chesapeake harvest to protect the health of the fishery, others have stepped in to meet the demand.

Man, that brings back memories of my childhood in coastal GA. Without the beer, though. I didn't start that until I was 16 or so and by then I'd moved inland. Good times!
