    I read this. While cool there is something about it that pisses me off.

    They are only release data on *some* of the possible exoplanets. I love how they word it to make it not sound like the ****ty thing they are actually doing.

    The TRUTH, is that the 306 that they did release are the ones that are least likely to be true exoplanets. The 400 that were not are the most likely to actually be exoplanets.

    Tell me, why can't they just release the data and let everyone look to see if they can determine if they are actual exoplanets? Thats right. Selfish greed. *******s.

    A garter snake? Thats it? My backyard is a freaking zoo! I have a dog, sometimes cats come around, squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits, and birds of all types. (we have two different type bird feeders back there). Every once in a while we still get a raccoon, but I run those bad boys off. They are troublemakers!

    We used to have an occasional deer before we put the fence up, that also keeps the wild turkeys out too. Though there aren't that many wild turkeys around. (maybe 5 or 10 in the whole town)

    :laugh1: I got all that wildlife as well, including foxes. Those damn squirrels drive my dog batty! Haven't had any issues with Raccoons.....yet.


    My problem with the garter snakes is that I keep runnning over them with my lawn mower. I hate that. Call me what you will but it bothers me. Poor snakes. They're great for my garden and other unwanted pests. I do a sweep beroe I mow but I think the mower scares them and they just start running, or what ever it is snakes do. My kids love 'em and all the sudden I'm Jeffrery Dahmer! ;)
