As long as he doesn't find out where mr. V lives and enter his pond disguised as a frog, i don't think it's much of a threat.

I'm a moderate on the shoulder touch. There are situations where i would do it, like in a very loud environment. Or when applying chloroform.

I'm not going to put my hands on a woman i don't know very often though.

It's more ok to do it to a man but you never know when you'll get a combative one.

Killing small frogs is no different than swatting mosquitoes.



Now you've gone too far. Who doesn't love blood sucking insects?

You might be missing an opportunity though.

That's the reaction of someone who has been beaten or assaulted. Rather than defaulting to "snowflake" looking to take umbrage, I would suggest you not tap on people (strangers) to get their attention. "Excuse me" when they're not looking, or going around to where you make eye contact, then speaking to them, would both work better than poking them.

Sorry, but these days, you're probably the rude one, though I don't recall it ever being polite to touch someone who's not looking at you. (Deliberately, that is - accidental contact should generate a "sorry" or "excuse me", too, but is more easily forgiven.)

It's an aggressive move that breaks into people's personal space. Little kids are forgiven it, but by grade school, it's not done.

I'm with you all the way on this. NY makes it harassment in the fourth degree, I think.

People often have sensitivities to particular acts. Cocktail Doll, a blogging waitress at New York, New York of some years ago, used to tell off men who touched her when they wanted to order a drink. And telling off a player who just left the High Roller room of a casino is usually a serious matter in a casino.

People do wander about a casino 'in their own little world' thinking about booze, how much money they've lost, whatever. Sometimes its hard to break into their reverie and communicate something important to them.

So we can't insult members but we can threaten them?



What he posted about the frogs
was truly disgusting. Wear hearing
dampeners at night if they're so
loud. Killing for the
reason he gives is pathological.

Spin it however you want.

I paid serious coin for this house and I'll be damned if I'll let some horny amphibians with wanderlust affect my use and enjoyment of my home.

Gosh, I just paid an exterminator to get rid of an ant problem; are you saying the exterminator acted pathologically as well?

LOL

You think you're so smart, so tell me where and how do you think we should draw the line in America today between "good" killing and "bad" killing?

It's OK to kill bugs but not frogs?

What about creatures whose size falls in between the two, should they get a bye?

You draw the line where you see fit and I'll do it my way.

Death, itself, is never okay. In fact, it's bad. Something has to be bad, it's not all good.

Frogs: bah!



Nope. Tadpoles. Food source, none of them reach metamorphosis, to your glee. Of the 8,000, only the ~30 or so hiding in the gravel are alive today. The other 7,970 of them were consumed within just 2 days >< Plus they're toads. No big whumps, just a gentle, warbling "ggrreeee".

To quote MrV - Pah!

I would suggest to V to go hook himself a nice pumpkinseed or bluegill, which I know he has out there and can be caught easily just about anywhere with just about any equipment in 10sec or less. They, or "it" as even one will do the trick, will decimate every single 'pole that happens upon his aquatic wunderland, and will incessantly harass any laying frog or toad to the point they won't stay. Once he sees how effective and hands off a solution this is, and comes to appreciate the stunning beauty (especially pumpkinseed*), I might add a largemouth (also easily obtained) which will consume literally anything that enters his land of solitude, including every single adult frog or toad, with instant and immediate prejudice. I typically house ~4 leopards every year for the entire warm season, but thanks to my largemouth's maturation, they all gone. ALL.

But seeing as he probably won't, and I cannot convince him how completely awesome frogs and toads are, the shovel's about as good as it gets. I am sick to death of suburbanites poisoning their way to their idiotic idea of perfection. Poison to kill frogs, poison to kill ants, poison to kill bees, poison to kill f#$%ing dandylions, poison to kill spiders, poison to kill squirrels, poison to kill woodchucks,.... I strongly disagree with MrV's opinion; frogs are awesome and nature should always be** encouraged and protected. But if it needs to go, then there's no better way than instant and decisive physical trauma.
