The bigger problem is funding corrupt African countries and officials who do not use monetary resources to fund local programs in mass. The man running Zimbabwe has been alleged to spend a million dollars on a birthday party. That million didn't go to the people. He also had local wildlife on the menu as an extravagaza. Also, the problem of well off Americans being lead to the water of the media through international ignorance or other. Trophy hunting is a symptom of the political corruption. Zimbabwe is using wildlife as a resource for their bad endeavors. This situation might not exist as an on-going problem...if there wasn't a problem. Maybe trophy hunting should be suspended temporarily to protect Americans going over there until they get their shit together.

This was downtown all day today.  We could barely work due to running to and fro each window.
 
These guys were flying right over where I was working all afternoon...

Thanks for the info +Chris Swanda ! This species is also found in NY, although I don't remember the red coloring being so bright as shown in this photo. Years ago, I came across one on the road and picked it up to carry it to a safer spot and it immediately decided to pee on me:)

Story
Tagline
A technology creator and adopter, wilderness survivalist, and a polymath looking for more. I was lucky to be a Dude from Discovery Channel's Dude You're Screwed Season 2. Follow along as I have some cool projects in the works.
Introduction
Thanks for stopping by.  Hopefully you will find something interesting here.  We tend to cover a lot of topics ranging from outdoors, technology, BBQ, fine pipe tobaccos, and random shenanigans.  Stick around and have a good time.  

He who sits still in a house all the time may be the greatest vagrant of all, but the Saunterer, in the good sense, is no more vagrant than the meandering river, which is all the while sedulously seeking the shortest course to the sea.  - Thoreau's Walking.

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. - So sayeth Robert Heinlein's character Lazarus Long in Time Enough for Love


Bragging rights
I am lucky enough to have been given opportunities in life, and have seized everyone of them. I cannot say I have been successful in each one, but trying is the hardest part. Failure is the greatest teacher.
