My new guy, who shall remain nameless (Grant) had an interesting job,
when still going to school, working on a farm. He was part of a
castrating team on a pig farm one summer. He mentioned he wore ear-
muffs as that gets noisy.
With a dead-pan face he told me that "pigs don't feel pain, but squeel
because they don't like to be held."
That struck me as very funny
That is funny!
On the same general topic there was a news article last night that
discussed how much people spend on their pets. And to prove the
excess, they pointed to a company that sells prostetic testicles for
dogs. There is even a video on the website. $900 plus intallation
bythe vet!!! The site says it makes the dogs feel better about
Maybe they should hang some testicles under their vehicles as a protest to
this castration terrorist group.
They would probably pass a law against these too. Apparently vehicles with
testicles would be offensive to those who wish to eliminate them from the
Is that for real or satire?
If real, I thought it was somewhat ironic that the supporter of the bill
DAN Nender made the comment, ""We cannot have intact testicles on
government property. As California government officials, at least the ones
on our side, will attest to, Sacramento is a testicle-free zone." Now,
presumably DAN was in Sacramento when DAN said this, as well as a few
Kinda speaks volumes there.
Also liked the comment when he was called on his "3 million euthenasias a
year" comment. "...Concentrate on the point I'm making, not the numbers."
i.e. don't confuse me with the facts, it's fake but accurate

Well Bob, different animals seem to feel things differently. Human animals sure
feel it when you kick them in the nuts. But tell you what, I got kicked in the
gut by a bull once, and I got mad and kicked him right back, right in the
balls, because that's what he was presenting me with. He didn't feel a thing.
Now, poke the same bull in the nostril with a finger, and he'll be in
considerable pain (by the way, I have had that confirmed by another bloke who
had the exact same experience) .... having said that, I don't know the first
thing about pigs, and their sensitivities. But I've seen an old farmer
castrating calves with a razor sharp knife, while he was standing behind them,
and they never even twitched. Brrrrr. You try and put a tag in their ear and
they sure do holler! Horses apparently are super sensitive, going on hearsay.

Ah, now I understand! I was going to say something nasty about the
number of rounds your BIL required to knock the poor guy down. With a
handgun, I understand. Only done wild hogs with my .454 Casull and I
have been known to miss when they're moving.
I had to put up with the shotgun only BS in Alabama years ago. Thank
god for Texas, where 1 round expended in anger is 1 deer nose in the
dirt. At least, that's the way it's been for the last 11 seasons. It's
real cheap ammo wise if your rifle stays sighted in. 4 rounds per
season is normal. 3 sighters, 1 for real.

I can't, for the life of me, relate to the dilemmas you're all going
FEW targets are as simple to take down as a deer.
A pissed-off grizzly is another matter.
I don't believe too many here ever had the challenge to mess with a
I say this with all due respect.
It is a decision you make when that huge, magnificent animal rises to
its hind feet.
You're quite correct, shooting a deer is not particularly difficult.
Getting close enough to have a clean shot can be 'a bit' tricky.
Haven't had the chance to face a Grizz, not sure I want to. Only thing
that scares me more is facing an armed man who wants you dead first.
Been there, done that, though I didn't draw the issue .45, I unloaded
a full mag from a CAR 15 at the guy while he was swinging up his AK
47. He did fire 5 or 6 rounds into the ground on the way down. 15
metres is too bloody close!
