No idea about the north country but they are epically bad in western, NY - I'd assume similar to Ohio.

The amount of rain we've had in July has really made for some aggressive hatches as of late....

Look into any modern research into human genetics and environment and the interactions are pretty clear. It's become so clear and accepted that one can no longer talk about what a gene does without...

I'm spouting off about humans and empathy and all that... but really can and should extend it to everything.

Right. I don't know it well, but that series was perhaps a bit ahead of its time in a lot of ways.

Of course all of this is pretty obvious if you care to look - but if you're stuck in a certain...

Ahhaha!

Yeah, it is tough...

Mine went something like this:

About 4pm at work I feel this sharp pinch in my back. My stomach sinks, I turn pale and hunch over in pain. After the initial...

Schultzz - my greatest fear out in the wilds is not being mauled by a bear or pounced by a kitty, but getting a kidney stone! Particularly one that is stuck and won't pass on its own.

Sure - if you say so.

I was speaking nothing about what happened in 74. You had somehow shifted to the notion that current reservations and legal situations make up for the past.

And I...

I have a whistle.

I'm not anti-gun, but I never really felt I had a need for one. If I was going to kill a deer or a bear I'd have no problem carrying a gun. I've hunted and grown up around it,...
