If you put it in a bag, go up on someone's porch, light the bag on fire and ring the doorbell, it's pretty comical watching the homeowner try to put out the fire with their foot. LMAO

The neighborhood kids used to get together at night and pick out someone in the neighborhood that wasn't liked much and at 2:00 in the morning we'd go there armed with toilet paper and string it all over their yard. By morning it was all wet and hard to clean up. We had a good laugh one morning as the father came out in his underwear and chased us all down the street with a broom.

I was taught very quickly that if you "Nigerian Knock" no matter what do not go back to the same house twice in one night even after an hour. Homeowner coming out with a shotgun as you reach for the doorbell can make a m'fer run at Olympic speeds to keep from getting "birdshot in the ass" and when you here the blast be glad you prayed. I mentioned birds?

More than 1000 birds dead at the same location? Birds and animals are an indicators of natural calamity. Hope nothing bad happens or it may even some secret missile(acid) test by govt. or some private biggie with the help of government. Anyway, it's bad only for us.

Since you're new to this thread, let me clarify what happened.

It was simply a matter of some dumbass who thought it would be real funny and cute to set of some fireworks at midnight on New Years Eve. It was near a large blackbird roost and it scared the wits out of those sleeping birds.

They burst into flight. In the mass confusion and because of the fact that blackbirds don't see well at night, they flew into things..... including homes and even the ground itself.

People just love doomsday scenarios, but that's not the case here.

Welcome to the thread.

When the product called water is coming out of a faucet and the fumes will burn because of multiple gasses...is something wrong there maybe? Clean natural gas will be the end to us all in Arkansas. I have a cousin dying now, they bored under his house on Tucker Mountain, too many lies told to the public about how safe fracking is. 900 unnamed chemicals injected into the Earth to crack the foundation of our life. Kill us and the birds, less cost of entitlements in this world of ignorant.): If karma ever gets Halliburton/Mosanto cornered maybe the Earth would replenish itself? I'm starting to believe FTW too?

(CNN)-- The Arkansas Geological Survey is trying to unravel a mystery: What is causing earthquakes in the town of Guy, Arkansas?
Since September 20, the community of 549 residents north of Little Rock has experienced an almost constant shaking from 487 measurable earthquakes.
"We've had 15 today including a 3.1 (magnitude) from this morning," Scott Ausbrooks, geohazards supervisor for the Geological Survey, said Monday. "These are shallow quakes between two and eight kilometers (between one-and-a-quarter and five miles) below the surface.

So nobody has a water well in Arkansas that the gases coming from the tap with the water will burn because of fracking? Three kinds of people in America 1) Those who know truth 2) Those who lie to cover up the truth 3) Those who believe the lies. Mostly people that believe the lies in this country it seems.

Why do they not want the public to know it is getting fed GMO's either, basturds fight to keep it off of labels, probably damn birds ate some of the crops and died?
