    That's ridiculous! Golden Retrievers are such nice dogs I can't imagine one causing an interstellar incident.
    My mutt is a different story. My brother's two hellhounds wouldn't leave enough to freeze.

    it becomes more murky when multiple people that know him state he is allergic to dog hair. and there is no evidence that he ever owned a dog..

    What's his deal? Has he been profiting from his tale?

    his 15 minutes of fame came when art bell interviewed him in the late 90s early 2000s . these days he is unwelcome anywhere. he did make a buck but those days are long since done.

    I hate it when the county highway department awards a contract to the lowest bidder and then get exactly what they pay for. There are three entrances to my neighborhood and two are now blocked.

    I especially hate it when the town highway department, utterly oblivious and tone deaf, decides to burn up it's budget somewhere and now pave the road my house is on - making access to the only road in or out a dicey prospect.

    Already had a scary call with the county contractor. Flagger waved me through and a gigantic earth mover swung its bucket around and stopped about six feet from my windshield.

    Yesterday while trying to get up my now surfaceless road to get in my driveway an SUV came screaming around a dump truck and had to lock up his brakes to avoid a head on collision. With me. It was the town highway dept supervisor. No flaggers, not even a cone.

    Swine. My dog is inhibited. Maybe I will save all her poop in a bag while this is going on and gift wrap it for them.

    I (almost) hate it when I'm outside my shop at night, everything nice and peaceful but suddenly the distinct sound echoing through the forest of a tree branch breaking under the foot, hoof, or paw of something causing momentary silence of the insect, frog, and cricket symphonies and grasping my momentary attention...

    I thought you work in a factory. Or by "shop" do you mean "a place for manufacturing or repairing goods or machinery," as opposed to "a store that sells things."

    I do work for a large manufacturing company but I also have my own workshop (shop) at home to work on my own projects, its a building I had placed in the back of my property near the forest tree line...I work late at night in that workshop some nights and sometimes just go to sleep on a couch I have in there lol...

    Currently I have two things going, well three if you count the faraday cage I'm going to install soon...I've been constructing my own solar panels off and on for a number of years, I'm on a fourth generation design now after testing last year...The other project is an energy device using lasers, quartz, ruby, and DC electricity which I want to test inside the faraday cage ensuring no outside interferences...I also want the faraday cage to store sensitive equipment and still have room to sleep in it, which that latter part is a curiosity of mine...I want to see if and how my sleep changes by sleeping without being immersed in wireless signals a we all are now, like it was when I was younger before cell phones and other technology broadcasting signals constantly...

    I hate it when I get on the entrance ramp to get on the expressway and the person ahead of me is doing about 30 mph. Then I have to merge into traffic at that slow speed and some people have to slow down or go around me and everyone thinks I'm an old lady. :mad8: :bhow:

    I hate it when technicians gut out part of a machine years ago that now needed and having no replacements, leaving the engineers to figure out what was in there and redesign it to make that particular feature of the machine operational again...

    In terms of transportation cars are recent.

    Some people must’ve been lousy at riding horses. You think there was trail rage? Fistfights because they couldn’t tie up to rail properly in town?

    I can only imagine there were perhaps even gunfights on wagon trails, over some issues with a passerby or maybe someone with a broken wagon wheel on the trail blocking the main path...The reasons for trail rage could be as varied as reason for road rage...

    and if you told someone 'that's horseshit' it had a greater chance of being literally true.

    Could have been a few trail rages over horseshit or maybe someone ran across one of their heroes and he wasn't what was expected...

    Never meet your heroes 'they' say...

    I hate it when someone conflates email and texting, you should not expect an immediate response via email...An immediate reply is not guaranteed nor should ever be expected when sending an email...Our society riding on instant gratification is causing people to become increasingly impatient...
