God damn you 2020

jeebus, @Ratel , that is awful. migratory birds are so incredibly important to multiple ecosystems globally! I know you know this already, but gottdammit! I’m so sick of this wanton destruction I want to explode.
there are bluejays that come to my front porch 2 - 3 times daily demanding, loudly (!) I come out and give them peanuts. I love them. One will even come and perch on the porch rail while I am placing the peanuts on the rail! then anxiously grab one and fly up to the gumbo limbo tree to crack them. today, a beautiful woodpecker came to the porch to inspect the oily sunflower seed hopper. migratory cardinals and hummers in the next months as winter comes up north.
point being, these beautiful creatures are such important indicators of the overall fitness of the environment (as we have known for, what? forever?)
Fish kills in Biscayne Bay, migratory birds dead in New Mexico, west coast conflagration, multiple, massive weather events…
WTAF?
oh, i already know the answer, but…
:disappointed:

We have seen a huge number of monarch-like butterflies here this summer, which was very very reassuring. But now that I think about it, none for a week or two.

“LGBT-free zones?” Seriously?

Hasn’t Putin basically made Russia one huge LGBT-free zone already?

Does that mean we get free drinks there?

Well, since that is the only interpretation that makes any sense at all, I guess so!

2020 isn’t likely to get much worse than 2016 for me because of the sheer amount of personal tragedy I experienced that year (beyond all the other horribleness that occurred) - but fuck if it isn’t top tier.

so, the parties involved with starting the fire will be charged with homicide?

Blockquote
Fire officials told CNN at the time that those involved were cooperating with fire investigators.

They better bring serious charges on this one!
