  1. Looks like a young killdeer to me . . . the adults usually protect the nest by acting like they have a broken wing and try to lead the threat away from the nest, then fly back. They nest on the ground in relatively open fields and usually clutch 4 or 5 eggs (in the nests I've found, anyway). Around here, we occasionally get pairs trying to nest in or alongside gravel driveways and in fields that are grazed down by cattle.
  2. Does ANYONE go to New Jersey voluntarily?
  3. How about: Jamie Madrox/Multiple Man - Lemmings?
  4. Thank you for clarifying that for me, Michael. While I understand that line of thinking, I'm not sure that I support it. Is there any proof that the security measures were inadequately implemented or did the fan just manage to subvert them all? Were there other measures that are in use at other stadia that Birmingham *could* have used and chose not to? It still feels like the team is being punished for the actions of a single fan and I can't say that sits well with me.
  5. Check the top right corner of the page. See the envelope icon? Click on it, use the "Compose New" button, and put "Jason Walters" in the "To:" field.
  6. I don't get it. Maybe I'm missing something. Why punish the team he was supposedly a fan of? How is it Birmingham City's responsibility that they have (had?) a nutjob as a fan? If something like that happened in an NFL or MLB game here, would we expect the team to be punished for the actions of a fan? (Raiders and Chiefs, I'm looking at you.)
  7. Are we going to a-veil ourselves of bridle puns now?
  8. If you're going to drive 200+ mph, are you going to bother trying to stop at lights?
  9. I don't disagree with anything that's been said. There were a lot of deaths in Aquaman, including some that he could have prevented. It occurred to me today while discussing the movie with a coworker that it wasn't the dark way the previous movies were shot that bugged me so much . . . it was that they didn't seem to offer any hope for a world better than what was portrayed in the movie. Wonder Woman (the character, and therefore the movie) seemed to provide a bit of hope that the whole world wasn't just "kill or be killed". One of the main themes in Aquaman is that he's providing hope that the surface world and Atlantis can get along, if not actually cooperate. *That's* why I liked this movie.
  10. The DVD for Aquaman? Yes, definitely! To me, this was easily the best DC movie so far. Wonder Woman was a step in the right direction and Aquaman really moved the whole franchise away from the dark, grim look that they'd been using.
