    How hard does everyone work? Really...? Average hours of actual work work a week, not “at work”.


    I’ve been very happy that I’ve not pursued paths (management consultant, doctor) of my close friends who legit work 60-80 hour weeks most weeks, sometimes more.

    I’ve had weeks like that but they’re the exception.

    Where is the DBR time in a schedule like that?!?!

    You mentioned this previously. I'm quite divided. If a neighbor had a dog that I felt was a danger to me, my family, or my animals, I would stop at nothing to get rid of it.

    Conversely, if ANYONE tried to tell me what to do with my dog, I'd be, well, disinclined to listen.

    I can relate to that position. The deal with this guy is that he's been irresponsible for 20+ years, rules aren't for him, be they dog rules, zoning rules, fire (burning) rules, he just does what he wants...

    I would guess (and be about 99.5% sure of this) that, if you received complaints about your dog's aggressive behavior/running rampant through the neighborhood, you would step up the obedience training for your dog to get the bad behavior under control. Of course, you probably wouldn't have to receive any complaints - you would already be working on these issues, if they existed.

    It helps when their are clear laws. Where I am, the law is a dog must be under “reasonable control”, unless local ordinance requires leashes.

    But, yeah, some folks just can’t be bothered with anything —- sometimes it comes back to bite you.

    we've got clear rules and ordinances, he just doesn't follow them. I'm sharing my 20+ years of notes and warning letters from the town (to him) with the aggrieved party in this...we're too small of a town to have a police force, so the Selectboard (three members, unpaid) bumble along as best they can...not a crisp way to handle serious problems, I can assure you.

    There are 10 other dogs on this small road (there were 11 until one got killed by the Akita) and not one EVER poses a problem.. Nitwit owner plus known aggressive breed equals bad situations..

    How do you post a gif? To make it actually move and whatnot.

    I've been wondering also. I think you can just insert the image using a link and make sure that retrieve remote file and reference locally is not checked.

    Make sure to insert it from a URL. I used giphy for both of these.

    I'm running into this issue with Alaska. The person interpreting them is not fully understanding what was written but I don't want to go through the legal/court remedy.

    This is the key trick.
    Thanks!

    Yeah, I feel this opens up a whole new world of postable stuff beyond YouTube videos.

    I used to see Andre The Giant regularly in the Montreal subway...he had a way of sticking out...the term "giant" may be overused, but not in his case, he was absolutely enormous.

    The various stories of what he could/had to do on account of his physical stature are astounding.

    His ashes were sprinkled over his farmland near Ellerbe, NC in Richmond County.

    I saw that! Montreal and Ellerbe two of his favorite places, that's pretty interesting...

    Regarding some of his capabilities, there are various reports that he could (and did) drink 119 beers in six hours...(I can think of several downsides to that).

    There’s an article out there specifically about his drinking exploits that defies belief.
