    Shoulda been the Cleveland Fire.
    Like the Miami Heat.
    And Chicago Fire.
    Oh wait that's a tv show about firefighters I think or an MLS team.

    Word to the wise:
    Don't try to kill a possum with your border collie, or a pellet gun.
    Neither get the job done.

    been there lol
    back when i had chows they trapped on behind some bamboo and i must have shot the poor thing 20 times w a .177 before it stumbled out and died a John Wayne death
    since then i've come to realize they serve a purpose and are ugly af but fairly harmless beyond the fleas and ticks all wild animals bring to the yard
    i think they are one of the only marsupials on the continent but these days the akitas wipe out any families pretty quick
    when i first tried and killed one w a pellet gun i followed the next encounter w a .22 and that took 5 shots!
    shot one w a .40 and then gave up since they are pretty entrenched and i didn't want to go to jail when the neighbors realized who was engaged in late night possum gunplay

    The border collie shook it like a rag doll for a good 20 seconds. I don't how anything can survive that, but it did.
    It was bleeding, so I figured a quick death would be the humane thing to do.
    4 headshots later with .177 pellet gun, I started to rethink my strategy. How can something bleed that much and not die?
    I decide to finish it with the shovel, but by then it had somehow crawled behind a shed. I thought about letting it bleed out, but wanted to end its suffering.
    It was difficult to get a good swing with the shovel, but I got it really good in the upper abdomen with the pointy end and was able to get my weight on top of it. It kept hissing, so I held it there for a good minute until it stopped.
    When I removed the shovel, I had collapsed it's thoracic cavity, but somehow it was still breathing. WTF?
    I backed off and somehow it rolled over, and used its one good front leg to halfway lever itself to a kneeling/standing position and started dragging itself away on one leg.
    Is this a possum or a terminator?
    I got it through the neck with the shovel the next time. I nearly decapitated it, and that was finally enough to kill it.

    The whole time my wife is yelling at me to just use the 12-guage at finish it off.
    I think she secretly wanted me to go to prison.

    oh you had an audience!
    my wife would just ask why i had to make so much noise out there
    they are definitely hard boned and tough to kill
    its almost comical and yet its a massacre you won't soon forget lol
    i find them dead in the yard from time to time and they usually aren't that bloody
    i think the akitas just know exactly where to bite the idk
    never forget the first time i saw one
    was 17 and stoned off my ass walking home from a friends house when suddenly one was on the wall at eye level a couple of feet away
    in the instant i looked at it the thing hissed and i screamed and ran into the street and the rest of the way home
    everyone i partied w the night before was laughing hysterically at me the next day as i tried to convince them giant rats were roaming the city

    I want to buy Red Dead Redemption 2 but I feel guilty as fuck to do it because I know it's another form of self-sabotage because the time spent playing the game, even for 1 hour, could be spent on something productive.

    but I really want to play a game, GTA V or RDR 2 has my attention right now

    Woman sues McDonald's after complaining that a cheeseburger advert was so irresistible it caused her to break her fast during Lent
    Zahra Tayeb | Business Insider — 7 August 2021

    A woman from Omsk, Russia, is reportedly suing McDonald's over an advert featuring cheeseburgers and chicken nuggets, which she said caused her to break her fast during Lent.

    Ksenia Ovchinnikova, an Orthodox Christian, said she was trying to stay away from meat and other animal products during the six-week period leading up to Easter in 2019, according to multiple reports.

    The case was first reported by Russian state media and picked up by western outlets including Fox News, which wrote that she abstained from eating meat for a month when the enticing McDonald's advert made her give in, according to the lawsuit.

    Lent is a strict period in which many devout Christians are expected to sacrifice the eating of meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy for the entire season.

    "When I saw an advertising banner, I could not help myself. I visited McDonald's and bought a cheeseburger," she reportedly said in her statement.

    Fox News reported that Ovchinnikov accused the fast-food chain of breaking consumer protection law and insulting her religious feelings. She is suing McDonald's for $14 (1,000 rubles) as compensation for sustained moral damage.

    McDonald's did not immediately reply to Insider's request for comment.

    According to Fox News, Ovchinnikov said in the lawsuit: "In the actions of McDonald's, I see a violation of the consumer protection law. I ask the court to investigate and, if a violation has taken place, to oblige McDonald's LLC to compensate me for moral damage in the amount of one thousand rubles."

    This is not the first time McDonald's has been hit with an ad-related lawsuit. In May, the fast-food chain was sued by two divisions of Allen Media Group over allegations of racial discrimination.

    The complaint accused McDonald's of refusing to advertise on Entertainment Studios networks or The Weather Channel due to racial stereotyping.

    The nation of the great Rurik.
    The father of the sons of Ru.
    The last lord and heir of the old Sith descendance that skyed down from the avalanchian steppe to battle the Gods of the north to free the Sclaves and settled the Gae mafia at the gates of Babylon with which they repelled the hordes of the Great Ones from the east before crushing the ruble hungry Avars sapping from the south.
    If not for the Aryans and their special relationship with the empire of Media the bastard knights of Ru would rushin attack.
