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)

Just wrapping up a camping trip. 3 nights.

Weather has been mostly about 15 or 16 C, with a great deal of rain.

I love summer.

From your question, I infer that 15 or 16 C doesn't sound much like summer to you.


Spoiler
TBH, it doesn't sound much like summer to me either.

Truly amazing that "through no fault of their own" various burgeoning populations in drought prone areas experience hardships due to a lack of life giving water. Whatever could those populations have ever thought of doing?

Meanwhile forest fire(s) adjacent a major river in western Colorado a year or so ago resulted in a 100% fish kill in the river when seasonal rains washed an overwhelming amount of ash and debris into it. 100% kill. No survivors. Poor fishies.

Don't you live in Phoenix, Arizona? I think you guys have overstripped your reliable water supply too. As has much of Texas.



I feel a bit guilty for taking India's rain. And I am going to have to actually mow my "yard" this summer. Unthinkable.


The worst irony about India is that the government with the help of the WHO and other organizations has been really pushing to get indoor bathrooms in much of the rural areas, bathrooms they no longer have the water to flush with, and in fact probably didn't have the water to flush with in the first place.


Meanwhile, there is another crisis in the making. The floods this year in the Midwest seriously affected the Corn and Soybean crops, and not just this years' crops, they destroyed much of the "reserve" grains that were stored in silos. And the floods have affected the ability of the river barges to transport what grain is available in a timely manner to the Port at New Orleans for shipment overseas.

High today 19 C. In the forecast, highs are 19 C again tomorrow, 22 C Thursday, and ferociously hot Friday
Spoiler
I mean 27 C

but I won't complain, because the cold spring weather lasted ridiculously long this year, so I can handle a few scorchers.
