Thank you for answering my first question ASAP!:relaxed:


Now “like a deer in the headlights” has a whole new meaning,.

(was that one too easy?)


You see! This is what comes of our overdependence on light globes! The older lamps didn’t pose this kind of menace to wildlife, because they were smaller. That’s why I’m starting The Bambi Project, with the aim of ending our dependence on this dangerous light source for good. Join me on Patreon or Kickstarter or whatever!


Somebody had to do it, and you gave me the perfect lead-in for the time the sheriff asked one of my less intelligent uncles how he finally managed to shoot a deer after years of trying.

“Well,” he said, “I finally figured out that if I could get my brother to hold the spotlight while I held the gun…”


I swear that I thought @frauenfelder had this in the headline. See how our brains are wired for bad similes?

It was the sound of inevitability, Mr Anderson.


It still made me giggle, though.
