Thor was a great guy. Same as most of the Asgard. Loki was a jerk, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:21 PM)

I think thor was just too smart to NOT call us stupid next to him.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 07:18 PM)

Six of one, half a dozen of the other?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:17 PM)

I always interpreted that scene to mean that asgardians weren't capable of breaking down problems in the same way as humans.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 06:58 AM)

I mean, SG1 was a good show on balance. One of my favourite things was Thor admitting he found humans good to keep around because they so often came up with stupid ideas that nevertheless worked out.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Those episodes were 1969 and 2010.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Stargate sg1 was loosely based on the movie, it thrived on continuity it was impressive how old situations and solutions would come back in unexpected ways. Continuum had it's villain use the characters own solution in two previous episodes against them.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:39 AM)

And yeah, name is based on a part of my surname. Can't remember why I picked it. Lost to memories of the primordial early 2000s.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:37 AM)

Like how Abydos in the movie is in another galaxy on the far side of the universe, but Abydos in SG1 is the closest world to Earth (and that was the only reason the gate could still get there) and even getting to other galaxies was impossible with the normal gates.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:35 AM)

I was very tired when I said that, but what I meant was a lot of stuff that is in the original Stargate movie is contradicted a lot in Stargate SG1.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 May 2017 - 12:48 AM)

I remember a fanfic that had Swindle as Lawyer.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 10:08 PM)

No, I am referring to before Beast Wars: Uprising. I swear Swindle was a lawyer in a story before "A Brush With Infamy".

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:47 PM)

i cant get the link to work for the life of me. just go to the wiki and type "a brush with infamy" in the search box and itll come up

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:40 PM)

grr. check the post above this one. stupid non working link and i cant delete shouts...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

I swear I've read the story but now I forget which one it is.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

When has G1 Swindle been a lawyer before?

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2017 - 07:20 PM)

All I know about PennPenn is he's so good they named him twice.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 May 2017 - 07:02 PM)

Nope.. Pennpenn is actually a Prinny dood!

@  Foffy : (25 May 2017 - 06:47 PM)

I wonder if Pennpenn is related to Sean Penn.

@  Kalidor : (25 May 2017 - 04:31 PM)

PennPenn - What are you talking about?

Prequel creep?

@  Pennpenn : (25 May 2017 - 09:47 AM)

The prequel-creep from the original Stargate movie to SG1 is kinda funny.

@  Paladin : (25 May 2017 - 08:12 AM)

@  Robowang : (25 May 2017 - 06:50 AM)

There have been links to articles once or twice that I actually wanted to read but were cut off.

@  Robowang : (25 May 2017 - 06:49 AM)

True.

@  unluckiness : (25 May 2017 - 06:45 AM)

eh not missing much

@  Robowang : (25 May 2017 - 06:40 AM)

Stupid Twitter.

@  Robowang : (25 May 2017 - 06:40 AM)

That explains why they are cut off all the time.

@  Robowang : (25 May 2017 - 06:40 AM)

Yuck.

@  Foffy : (24 May 2017 - 11:05 PM)

I mean, a large portion of the status updates are snippets of peoples' twitter accounts...

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 May 2017 - 09:34 PM)

I thought that was the status updates?

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 May 2017 - 09:18 PM)

Wait, I thought Twitter was the P&R shoutbox.

@  Noideaforaname : (24 May 2017 - 06:11 PM)

Nerd talk is infinitely better than P&R talk...

Most people should rap their age as a math problem.

@  Foffy : (24 May 2017 - 03:24 PM)

More people should state their age as math problems. I'm nine squared minus sixty-three.

@  Benbot : (24 May 2017 - 03:16 PM)

That's a complicated way of saying you're 20

@  Whirl Maximus : (24 May 2017 - 03:08 PM)

Simpsons movie is ten years old. I'm ten years older.

@  The Doctor Who : (24 May 2017 - 02:48 PM)

Or Facebook

@  Paladin : (24 May 2017 - 02:07 PM)

it's called Tumblr.

@  lastmaximal : (24 May 2017 - 02:04 PM)

Is there a p&r shoutbox?

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2017 - 02:02 PM)

Quote from Facebook (not from me): "Religion is like having a penis. It's all very well and good to be proud of it. Just don't shove it in my face UNLESS I ASK YOU TO!"

In an mmmbop they're gone! In an mmm bop they're not there!

@  unluckiness : (24 May 2017 - 08:13 AM)

@  Robowang : (24 May 2017 - 08:09 AM)

It's Skyline time.

@  MEDdMI : (24 May 2017 - 06:28 AM)

Saker, that is really cool, but I can't help but imagine some future super villain is right now learning to train an army of birds of prey from your institution.



ha! I have to admit - I have a Lanner falcon called "Rumble". Take from that what you will...... ;)

Well scarily, in the UK you don't need any form of license or permit in order to keep birds of prey....hence the HUGE amount of birds that I have dumped on my doorstep from people who have no idea how to look after them. I have a zoo license and am LANTRA qualified so at least if people ask me to help them with a bird they have bought, I am in a position to do something about it! I have rescue birds that I have rehabilitated and they are now part of the flying team which is really rewarding icon-hotrod.gif Other than that, all of my other birds are from breeders - Am I right in thinking that in the US you can trap wild birds? We're not allowed to do that over here!


Oh, I didn't even pay attention to what country you were in. Thats interesting. I can imagine a lot of being wanting to get that cool hawk and then realize they can't take care of it at all.

In the US, a federal law protects all native species. You can't keep anything without permits. This protects all species (and their eggs and feathers) except for the invasives like pigeons, house sparrows and european starlings.
Exotic species are fair game for anyone though. I'm sure if you really wanted you could find a harpy eagle online and keep it.

Permits are needed for hunting, rehabilitation, research and keeping for research, and falconry. There might be another permit for zoos. I'm not sure. I worked at a zoo that had native birds of prey, but did not have adequate conditions to keep them under a falconry license. So maybe they fell under another license. Some of the regulations are kind of interesting. Research licenses are way less strict that rehabilitation licenses for example. Rehab licenses also allows keeping of unreleasable birds (I think), such as those that are injured or too social with humans to be released.

If you have any kind of permit, you can take wild birds. The falconry regulations are pretty strict, and I think they are reasonable. But they are mostly wild caught birds.
