Taking a pleasant stroll in the city? Read this first.
Maybe a dog license should be issued to the dog owner requiring the dog owner to demonstrate skill, knowledge and responsibility. It seems to me that most dog owners shouldn't have a dog for various reasons mainly related to neglect. I wonder how many people in cities or suburbs walk their dog adequately. I hate seeing people run with their dog, or use a bicycle causing heat exhaustion. It's rare to see a dog owner have water available for their dog. My neighbor has a dog I've never seen and only hear wining. I think they have a shock collar on it with a anti-bark sensor. The backyard stinks of urine and has quite a few flies because it only urinates in one place right next to the back corners of our two houses where my outdoor table is.
Here's an ethics question about dog ownership: If while walking a friend’s dog as a favor, someone neglects to take the agreed-upon precautions – and if as a result the dog breaks free and mauls another dog – who is responsible for the damage? The dog walker or the dog owner?
When Florida and NYC are underwater because of rising sea levels the climate change deniers might think it would have been less expensive to prevent the problem.
Norfolk VA is feeling the pinch. along with quite a few island nations.
well, here in japan we have declining population. and there is an over abundance of old, noncontributing people, like myself. of course, if the government wud just open up immigration a little, it seems there are a hell of a lot of peoplw who want to come here. so the problem wud vanish.
interestingly, it seems many young japanese are simply not interested in propagating. marriage rates are way down. i've seen a study done in which healthy young japanese men were asked, "if an appealing woman asked you to take her home for fun and games wud yu do it?" 1/3 said no. there has been no abstinence campaign here, so presumably these men have seen there parents lives and there grandparents lives and decided to opt out of the game.
