I switched over to the evaporative cooler. Heater is now off.
Bleh. Pigeons. I hate them.
I half hope the bird flu does get to the US and mutates into something that only affects pigeons. They are so disgusting.
I hate them.
"But, Robomarkov, that is such a strong word. Surely you do not mean it."
Yes. I do.
I used to work building maintenance and had to clean the roof as part of my duties. At some points I was ankle deep in pigeon feces. This same feces those disgusting birds built their nests from - that and other abominations such as their dead. Imagine building your house from human excrement and dead bodies. Now give birth there and raise your children. Imagine the mites, roaches, and other vermin meaning nothing to you. Pigeons are disgusting beyond your imagination.
The joins (where the downslopes on the roof meet) were full of pigeon pooh. Since I was up there anyway, I decided to sweep them out. Filthy.
Pigeons present a serious vector for human infection of bird flu (H5N1) when it arrives in the US. In particular, the homeless will be affected most strongly.
Save a human. Kill a pigeon.
