...is for fun

This is the place to debate politics, global warming, and yes, even the origin of man, whatever. Simply put, if you want to argue about off topic stuff, you've found the right board. Have fun!

0-percent politically inspired humour....unless you're active in the wheat lobby.
(Actually, this whole YouTube channel is pretty bananas.)

I don't like musical theater, but I like the cartoon version.

I was thinking that eagle needs a perch hard-fastened and cantilevered off to the side of the saddle. Mongolian wolf hunter's arm needs a rest. Then again, that would just foul his own range, like a ball turret gunner shooting off his own fuselage.

Mongolian wolf hunter is too cool for that.

I think he has a daughter who is carrying on the centuries old tradition, too!

Very cool! But don't be messin' with her, or you'll have a head full of eagle claws!

Cool video. Can't imagine the disfigurement I would have taken as a young lad if any girls I had called upon could direct a bird of prey to their will. Yikes.

Eagle claw anecdote:
While a co-worker was on assignment in Valdez, Alaska; she went out for a job one morning with her hair in a pony tail. After a few minutes she felt something unusual and painful on her head. Reached behind the crown and found blood. Looked up, and an eagle was leaving the target area like a successful dive bomber.

From a bird's eye view, the eagle thought her pony tail bouncing around was a tasty treat critter!

Certainly every time I see a cute girl jogging with a pony tail I come to the same conclusion!
