Yeah, great video.

I've lived in the sticks half my life, and I've never seen a cougar in the wild. I've seen tracks in the river bank on the cowlitz river as a kid. But that's it. Cougar human interaction takes some effort and luck. How that interaction goes (usually with a glimpse and a story) determines whether the luck is good or bad, I imagine.

When I go in the woods, deeply, I take a long walking staff. Owls can be assholes. I've never taken a firearm unless I was hunting. And I am a better mushroom hunter than elk hunter... :oops:

I saw a mountain lion, being a total dick, attacked some guy jogging in Colorado, who hit it with a rock and fucking strangled it to death with his bare hands. Some guys have all the luck.

Ooh! Disease, I forgot to bring up disease!

SeaTac is an international airport, with all the pandemic risk that implies...

He's being treated about 2 miles from my workplace.

I'm not particularly worried about this virus, though China seems to be. Modern quarantines are odd to see. I'm interested in seeing whether it works.

@riggerjack - IIRC, you have a draw full of pandemic preparations though?

My zombie drawer? Yup. Pulled out the box of masks, last night. Still have bleach, gloves, etc.

But it's all still there. Like I said, I am not worried about this virus. The deaths are among the old or infirm.

By comparison, the 1919 swine flu was killing people in their prime.

All the crazies are out and about on this topic, it makes for some fun reading. I doubt it all as a general rule. But what I do believe is that masks are selling for $45 in the quarantine zone.

When Ebola hit Dallas, masks and gloves were hard to get in the PNW. Some things just disappear, there was no alcohol based hand sanitizer at Costco, last night, for instance.

Ya that 1919 was messed up and aimed directly at me except I wasn't born yet. I intend to stay in my prime for another 40 years or so.
