Louis CK has been accused of whipping his genitals out and masturbating. In other news others say they seen it coming.

Ok too soon.

Fair warning Helsing Ultimate is so dark it casts a shadow on darkness itself and so is the abridged version, but teamfourstar makes it 1000 times funnier.

I had seen it before, quite a while back. I had to research it to get the joke.

I interpreted it as requiring 3 birds, for it to be able to go beyond just an attempt.

ps - Somewhere a member has/had the signature something along the lines of "There are 10 types of people, those who understand binary and those who don't." It took me a while to get that one.

Re: Over My Head
In English (and in other languages, I would assume), there are various terms for collections of various animals along with various terms for their young. On Wikipedia, there is the article, "List of animal names" at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_animal_names. Such lists come under the subject of "terms of venery", which appear to be derived from late Medieval English hunting terminology.

Best to study such lists, since they inevitably arise in trivia contests and crossword puzzles.

I interpreted it as requiring 3 birds, for it to be able to go beyond just an attempt.

You remind me as myself as a child. Presented with an array of quasi-quantitative terms, I assigned values to them:

a couple = 2

a few = 3, maybe 4

some = 4 to 6

several = 7 -- probably because seven and several are so similar.

many = more than 7

All so perfectly logical, I could never understand why everybody else paid those distinctions no never mind.

Yeah, it's weird. I've got a charm of geelgat (yellow arsed) finches pulling apart the new leaves growing on my palm trees every Spring.

In my language, all groups of birds flocking together are called the equivalent of flocks (vlok).

The difference between Northern Girls and Southern Girls.

Northern girls say 'You can'. Southern Girls say 'Y'all can'.
