Re: experts and seagulls

Well either their stomachs or mouths could be considered buckets.

Re: experts and seagulls

Attach seagulls, armed with M-60 machine guns and ronca anchors, on multihulls.

How 'bout experts on seagulls?

Re: Experts and Seagulls

Wouldn't it be nice if somehow the seagulls could be genetically re-engineered to only crap on the "little bit of sunshine" belonging to the experts?

Re: Experts and Seagulls

An internet expert is someone "you" disagree with (or who simply annoys you!), and you either:

a) cannot be bothered to disagree with.
b) regret bothering to disagree with!
c) don't understand the point they were actually making.
d) don't know enough to disagree with - even if have nagging doubts!

Seagulls on the other hand are flying rats who live simply to eat, poop and squawk.....and can't use the internet. yet .

Re: Experts and Seagulls

In some ways they are quite similar. They are both harder to get rid of if you feed them even once.

However I have found the droppings of experts to be usefull at times, but not so for the seagull droppings.

If an expert drops on a seagull they don't even notice. But if a seagull drops on an expert it can be quite amusing, even downright funny.

I haven't found a way to add seagulls to my ignore list yet, and some people get upset if you start shooting them.

In most parts of the world, shooting an expert will get you in more trouble than shooting a seagull.

So I voted for seagulls as being more annoying.

Re: Experts and Seagulls

Well Don, you've done it again.

Just going to make myself another coffee while I ponder this issue.
All I know so far is that they are both full of crap.... that never seems to run out

It is considered good luck in Nova Scotia to have a seagull poop on you. Not so much in Maine.

Re: Experts and Seagulls

They are also similar in that then tend to fly in, crap all over everything, then fly right back out.
