    Yeah. I've bumped into bears when doing ecological assessments. They ran away from me as fast as I did from them. They're generally not interested in being close to humans, so we typically try to make noise when we're in their country, as they'll evacuate before we ever see them. But god forbid I ever come upon a cub after passing through some heavy brush.

    My wife's goats ate the siding off their house.

    The asphalt shingle siding.

    It's kind of nuts. She's usually a highly critical viewer but when I tried asking for detail all I got was "they say stuff like hoagie"

    To be fair, it's the house she grew up in. She didn't have the siding, really.

    Then again, neither did her parents after the goats were through.

    Goats rule.

    I once had a fat goat pin me against a wall at my knees so I couldn't move. It did this so I would rub it. Once the goat was done being rubbed it let me go.

    Goats are pretty cool. They are also delicious. Part of the reason that I'd have trouble having a farm.

    '
    The bears I've run into "in the woods" have always run away.
    The ones I've seen in the Poconos are not afraid of people at all.

    Probably my most contentious bear encounter was in Shenandoah NP. Rounded a corner...a cub...then a sow. 15 feet away. Then, another cub down below in a hollow, and mama was calling. We all laid back and were quiet, and they moved on.

    I hike frequently in the Adirondacks and have never had a bear encounter there, even though I hear that they can be very aggressive at times. I do my best to try to practice good bear country preventative measures at that time. I'm usually by myself as well.

    Just finished Mare of Easttown last night. Really good show, but not life-changing or anything. Really fun ride for sure though. I thought Julianne Nicholson (Lori Ross) was the best actor on the show. She and Evan Peters were both phenomenal for me.

    Agreed, she was really good. In general the whole cast did a good job. Except for Winslet.

    I think I remember you saying she was trying too hard to be frumpy and whatnot, which I can definitely see after watching. I will say though, I've worked in Delco doing construction management on multiple occasions, and those types of people really do exist in that region. It may seem like she was overdoing it (and she certainly did at some points), but for the most part she got it pretty dead on. I know it hurts you to think people like that actually walk this planet. :laugh:

    Did you watch the little 10 minute feature after the final episode? They went into how they had to learn the whole Delco dialect lol

    I didn't, but I'd like to imagine them just dropping Kate Winslet off somewhere random on MacDade Boulevard and telling her to go have fun. :laugh:

    It's true, but the thing is, I'm not trying to make people hate the show - if you liked it, and her performance, that's fine with me. Just don't try to convince me that it was "great." Our standards have to be higher than that.

    I've decided I hate the show. I shall not watch it.

    And while we are busy facing hard truths, The Wire is great for two seasons and sucks buttcheeks after that
