If you're really fast, and you get away so that the humans can't see you, they can sometimes figure out how to track you. So when you're settling down for your next longish rest, suddenly the humans show up again. They really are scary.

Humans are also ridiculous and annoying creatures.

On the other hand, some of my best friends are humans. So there is that.

Persistence hunting is possibly one of the most terrifying systems of eating a creature EVER. When considering all the horrible ways various animals might eat you...sharks...bears...hell, even CATS are a damn site less scary than those early, small humans, in small groups, following relentlessly.

At a certain point, the animal has to KNOW how it is going to go. Even at that point it could still be HOURS playing out.

*shudder*

I won't be chasing that hare unless I AM going to eat it. Also, I won't eat it unless I can save and use the hide. I mean, I can afford some pretty yummy hot dogs.

Not just hours - persistence hunting humans can spend days following prey.

I read somewhere that persistence hunting until very recently was still a common practice among the San people, and some of their folklore/legends are essentially descriptions of following an animal (like an eland) for a long time, often after having shot it with a rather slow-acting poison-dipped arrow, and being helped or hindered by various entities.

San (Bushmen) legend:

Quote:
One of the first animals created by ǀKaggen [Mantis], and his favourite, was the eland.[9] ǀKaggen's wife Coti gave birth to the eland, and ǀKaggen hid it near a secluded cliff to let it grow.[9] One day his sons, Cogaz and Gewi, were out hunting.[9] Not knowing their father's love for the eland, they killed it.[10] ǀKaggen was angry, and told Gewi to put the blood from the dead eland into a pot and churn it.[11] Blood spattered from the pot onto the ground and turned into snakes.[11] ǀKaggen was displeased. Next, Gewi scattered the blood, and it turned into hartebeests.[11] Again, ǀKaggen was unhappy. He told Coti to clean the pot and add more blood from the eland, with fat from the heart. She churned it, and ǀKaggen sprinkled the mixture on the ground. It turned into a large herd of eland.[11] This was how ǀKaggen gave meat to his people to hunt and eat.[10] The Bushmen attribute the wildness of the eland to the fact that ǀKaggen's sons killed it before it was ready to be hunted, spoiling it.

Weather has been crazy here. We had about 3 days where it didn't dip below 100/38 degrees until after 8 pm. I guess the advantage of those temperatures is that most people don't go outdoors long enough to get a sunburn.

After that, we had a day that didn't top 85/30.

The highest temperature I noticed in my back yard was 112/45 on Tuesday. Which was almost 10 degrees higher than the official high temp. I believe my backyard thermometer.

We're kinda back into normal June weather now.

Things are normal here, but I've kind of made them extreme.

An elite running athlete I follow created a new race this year. I think it's first running is this weekend. It is a 'last man standing' kind of horror-show, and many of the most serious elite athletes have 'DNF'ed' at the original 'Bigs Backyard Ultra', upon which this race is based.

Courtney Dauwalter (look up how FUCKING tough she is) was simply not tough enough to earn more than a 'DNF'.

I've asked him to register my sweetheart and I for the 2040 running of his race. I do hope he receives it as the compliment I intend it to be.

You are right. She deserves it.

She is unbelievably tough, speaks about it clearly, and with confidence, yet not a whisper of arrogance. One of the most chilling things about hearing her tell the story, was the casual way that she mentioned still having all 10 toenails. She not only won MOAB, beating a sincerely tough BADASS by 10 fucking HOURS, but she did it while looking like she was doing her daily.

That tough, buys you a 'DNF' at Bigs Backyard.

That Laz guy really knows how to fuck a person (the key seems to be, get them to do it to themselves)
