I’ve been on the Undead Thread at least seven years, because Vlad was born here after we left earth, and I was here before that. Undead FRiends are real friends, giving real help, big or small. “If it all falls down,” the Zombie Apocalypse or whatever else happens, we’ll make sure our people are taken care of.
Kathleen had Ash’s tail, but Ash moved it. (*groan, HUFF*) Now she’s trying to get a grip on the carpet to drag herself forward, unsuccessfully. We haz a tiny pink furious now.
At the height of my weightlifting I was doing 1200 on a hip sled. 4x8. Then I’d back it off to around 800 and do toe-raisers.
Never did get my squats up over 485 though. Go figure...
That was 5-6 years ago now. Time flies.
I need to borrow Tom for his perspective. These birds look as big if not bigger than the local hawks (maybe redtails?), but the local cats are rather large, too, so I can’t tell if they’re small ravens or large crows.
Your comment about doing a service to the local avian community brought a concept to mind. During a macroeconomics class, our prof expressed the following question: “Is it immoral to let a million people starve, or should we feed them and then have ten million starving people?” Sowell covers the concept in the “Black Rednecks” book (how self-sufficiency is discouraged and a culture of victimization is created when able-bodied people are encouraged to be dependent upon the government.) I’m fine with having more ravens and crows as long as they don’t bother the hummingbirds, purple martins, etc. More rambling. It’s not even 1700. I’ll get back to the tomatoes now :).
A million people are starving only in a disaster situation, and if there is a free flow of information and goods, voluntary action will usually address the temporary needs better than any coordinated effort. Only in a few situations, like the Indian Ocean tsunami, is there a real need for the U.S. Navy to intervene, and that was largely because of the island populations with nowhere to evacuate to and the widespread devastation in undeveloped and largely unfree nations.
Thomas Sowell says there’s never, in modern times, been a catastrophic famine in a state or region with a free press and something like democracy. Shortage becomes starvation when government is at liberty to prevent natural market forces from getting food to where it’s most in demand.
I think the Original started in July of 2004, and by New Year’s Eve, we had hit the End Of The Internet.
Tiny Pink Furiousnesses are much more sedate than Tiny Blue Furiousnesses. My Tiny Blue Furiousness learned how to pull himself along the carpet without ever getting on his hands and knees!
You are SUCH a genneman!
I solved the Furious by feeding it, but it woke up again. As soon as the noodles are done, we’ll embark on our supper-delivery. It’s only about ten minutes away.
Ash had “Chunks in gravy with chicken,” which makes one wonder what the “chunks” are, if they’re not chicken. She was hoping I’d give her the pork that was thawing in the sink, but that’s going in the crockpot tomorrow.
Speaking of pink things, how are yours doing?
Pasta, by any other name, should be al dente!
This chart is a time map as well as having links to the past. The original undead thread took half a year to reach the end of the internet, and we got about halfway there again when we were asked to show mercy to the site.
Note: The links below will take you to our entry points into high-jacked threads,
which are our monthly continuations of the Undead Thread.

By the way, it's time to move again. Someone summon the tornado.
Atlanta golf course zombie?
I started packing my boxes when I saw you on that other thread. The title alone is a winner.
Yuppers, we’re moved.
I find the Undead Threadders much more comforting than blood kin at times. I know many whose hearts are golden. I am honored to be a part of this FReeper Family.
What she said! BUMP
You are one *really smart* lady!
I think I stopped in Wickenburg once to get cinnamon rolls. Anyway, I cloned your salsa recipe minus avocados. :(
You are so wonderful to cook for that family! I used to make pasta e fagiole w/chickpeas, onion, garlic, olive oil and parmesan cheese among other things, and it was really good. I bet yours is better.
My best calf raise was <300 lbs. I used a machine that rested on my shoulders and was afraid I’d have vertebral collapse if I lifted too much.
I congratulate and admire you!
The UT is my favorite hangout in the entire multiverse!
“when government is at liberty to prevent natural market forces from getting food to where its most in demand.”
The govt control thing is what disturbs me. I can’t address other issues because the things of which you speak are beyond the scope of my experience. However, penalizing people who want to give away their produce (happened in GA) is beyond the pale. I just hope we can straighten out these issues in November.
Again, thank you very much! I’ve fallen behind on the catchup activities.
Face, you have a good salsa recipe?
Oh, joy and ecstasy! I love knowing where we’re going!
It is so heartening to know that there are such marvelous people in the world. We are so truly blessed!
It’s at 3627. Hi and pleased to meet you!
I’m a firm believer in private action to help people in need, whether it’s taking food to a family caring for an invalid or buying a FRiend a new crockpot.
The Chickpea Dish started out as a Weight Watchers recipe, so it has a lot of vegetables in it. Today’s version had a couple of colored bell peppers in it (from Walmart) as well as some Anaheim chilis from the garden. And fresh basil.
Sometimes the government’s control is openly oppressive, and sometimes it’s intended to do good, as with price controls or penalties for “profiteering.” However, regardless of motive, people are much more likely to starve when the price system is not allowed to operate freely.
I hope, before I die, to see a President who has read Thomas Sowell.
Thanks for the recipe Face!
Thanks for the ping Silentgypsy!
Thanks in advance for trying this out with the Chiltepines TheMom!
Thanks and pleased to meet you there too!
Fandy-tactical. Had em out at the lake today. Much fun...
Love doing calf raises. Oly bar on a squat rack. To get better stretch, a 2x4 or a couple of stacked 45s works good. Tried a step aerobics step, but none of them I’ve seen will withstand the combined weight.
Good for you! DP is doing extreme outdoorsiness at the coast with Tom and Elen this week.
Speaking of calf stretches, I had a book by someone named Anderson who espoused calf stretches thusly:
Put your palms at shoulder height flat against a wall or solid object. Extend one leg backward and push that heel until it’s flat against the ground while dropping your hips without allowing the opposite knee to extend forward beyond the toes of the leg that isn’t having the gastrocs stretched. I don’t know if that makes sense—I’ll try to find the book and copy. The idea is to keep the lower leg of the side not being stretched perpendicular to the floor. (A thousand apologies if this is not coherent; I’ve tried not to post after 1700 hrs but weight lifting and physical conditioning is too important to put off lol!)
I hope you and yours had a marvelous Fourth!
Wow... It's been 8 years. It doesn't seem that long ago. So much has happened in that period of time.
And now I should move to the new thread, too.
My pink things were in Oregon with me and my wife last week. Little Pink is 3 going on Cutie does Oscar The Grouch. Littlest Pink is pushing up onto all fours; bucking to skip creeping, and go straight from inert mass to crawling.
More later, as I have a moment...
