    I thought this was kind of a cute blurb about coyotes. I can't necessarily describe why but it felt like a very homely description of my own form of communication and I can't help but wonder what other 'yotes would think of such.

    Much better than a headline I saw today - “KILLER coyote MURDERS BABY COW!!!”

    Like, no shit, they’re predators. “Killers” has a much stronger emotional punch to it, though, doesn’t it? And they managed to fit “murdering a baby” into the message too. It’s so fascinating how far people will go to paint coyotes as BAD GUYS that deserve death. This was on a hunting site. I get a kick out of the kinds of emotional rhetoric people like this use in discussing wildlife or their own actions.

    I’m all for people removing predators that are harming their livestock directly, but the appeals to emotion about it are embarrassing and childish sounding.

    This in my view is really a bigger problem than most realize and I'll spare my normal 58 flavors of Ragu ( Prego I think actually ) pasta sauce rant. There is a real problem with bad information and bad ideas and in the digital age it has begun to compound for every thoughtful well written piece of 'data' there are a thousand garbage bits of data being churned out en masse to the point where finding things of real value becomes increasingly hard. Articles like this contribute to this problem but in addition it provide no real information I'm sure. If I had to guess it would be possibly two to three paragraphs with an emotionally charged headline the thing to notice is what percentage of the webarticle is dedicated to advertisement, I'd be willing to wager they take up several times the space of the actual content of said 'article'. A large majority of it is just ghost written click bait garbage with no intention of providing any value other than the revenue it can generate for the proprietor of said cesspool in cyberspace from your traffic. It's predatory and the way things like this are worded to appeal to the growing numbers that have allowed themselves to become emotional fodder for such nonsense.

    Of course I find a Ted on it but it's something we had talked pretty extensively in psych coursework which was similar but was marketing and making people feel empowered by irrelevant choices ( Much like Voting )

    What do you mean by dwarf shifts?

    I'm calling it: Weird Al is a coyote.

    I could also see Lady Gaga being therian, for some reason. Not a coyote. I don't know what she'd be. Cat? Something in the mink family?

    Bird. Maybe a parrot of some sort or a beautiful bird of paradise?
