Earlier today my neighbor's (normally muzzled) giant black doggo was barking furiously - and since it's roughly 98 degrees F indoors where I am, I couldn't close the windows either and my family wa being stubborn about turning on the AC until an hour or two ago.

So I decided to go to the second floor of my house and peak stare at the doggo. We made eye contact and he went "apeshit"; that is, he just started barking louder, showing is big teeth and all.

What I, as a non-doggo expert, find strange is that while he was apparently going into RAEG MODE, his tail was wagging. Don't doggo's tails only wag quickly when they're happy, pleased or satisfied? Then again his owners don't take him out for walks much due to violent doggo things (when they do it's always with a muzzle on), so maybe he's just ecstatic over "interacting" with a different human for once. Or maybe I just don't know shit about doggos. Thoughts?

(NOTE: dog depicted left is not said doggo)

Dogs wag their tails when they are happy, excited agitated and angry. It just show emotion of many kinds. If they keep it muzzled, it is likely a threat to others.

John Smith 17/06/20(Tue)09:35 No. 46093

You should interpret tail wagging as a sign of confidence. If they're friendly and wagging, they're confident you're friendly. If they're being aggressive (barking, showing teeth, lunging at you, etc.) while wagging, they're confident you're a threat.

Whenever I see apartments with lights on while passing by I cant helpmyself but to think about their lives and I imagine myself living there being part of their family I love observing people I wish I could spectate the life just like when you are dead in a multiplayer game and trying not to poop myself and enjoy the moment

It's very beautiful a thing, John.
There's a German word for this exact concept but I can't remember it and wouldn't want to look it up because it has too much potential for self-referential absurdity.

John Smith 17/06/19(Mon)01:05 No. 46089

as do I, John

except for the part about pooping. I did not understand that part.

John Smith 17/06/19(Mon)02:50 No. 46090

I'm just as curious, but less imaginative. I can't help myself from looking through people's windows, a crack in the curtains, etc. While I rice my bicycle around town I peek in on all sorts of people. I never see much of interest though really, most people around here don't seem to be home during the day.

Here's another painting by Leighton I ran across looking for the previous one. Suitable for a desktop screen.

Dear John;
Last night I found a can of Heinz (trademarked) baked beans hiding at the back of a shelf in the pantry. There's something that has always unnerved me about beans. It makes me proud, as there was a chap who worked with right angled triangles (my 2nd favourite two dimensional shape) who also held a negative attitude towards members of the bean family.
I've been thinking of getting them framed. What do you think John?

Regards, John.

Carpentry, architecture. Probably some civil and mechanical engineering.

John Smith 17/05/10(Wed)22:44 No. 46033

I heard that the practical hazards of favism were the motivation of the likes of Pythagoras to swear off beans. Understandably, one would not want to play games with genetic disorders that could wreck one's red blood cell count. In this view, mystical explanations (e.g. farting is a sign that beans have souls, so quit eating souls, you monster) only happened after the fact.

John, if you don't mind me asking, if the right triangle is your second favorite two-dimensional shape, which is your favorite?

John Smith 17/06/16(Fri)23:48 No. 46082

Of course I don't mind, thank you for taking interest. As my beautiful wife will tell you, I never say no to a nice equilateral triangle.

I found some banana flavored coffee not too long ago, and I noticed if I add french vanilla creamer it ends up tasting like banana ice cream.

That reminds me, I need to pick up creamer.

John Smith 17/06/04(Sun)00:50 No. 46057

Same. How do you make your coffee? I used to just buy Folgers and make it in a drip maker. Then came the whole bean and french press. So much better.

John Smith 17/06/09(Fri)13:06 No. 46060

I do not really taste a difference between dark coffee and light coffee but I really like the taste. I am considering getting decaffeinated just so I can enjoy a cup before bedtime but somehow that feels like a waste of money

I don't feel like getting up to turn on the a/c

John Smith 17/05/25(Thu)13:55 No. 46043

Don't then, saving electricity is fine too.

John Smith 17/05/26(Fri)00:30 No. 46044

I ended up sweating too much and did it anyways. But yea I do need to start saving more on my power bill. But it sucks because I'll get too hot or too cold and I'm not a fan of shaking from being cold as well as sitting in a puddle of ball sweat.

John Smith 17/05/27(Sat)08:15 No. 46053

You could always try buying a fan, John.

Leave it on slow when it's just hot and put it on high when Hades moves in next door. Usually there's a few settings in-between low and high.

If you don't like fan noise wear headphones.

If you really think about it, allergies are kinda weird

How did we even evolve to have allergies? Wouldn't they be horribly detrimental to our survival?

John Smith 17/05/02(Tue)05:23 No. 46028

There are lots of processes that accomplish both useful and detrimental things. Allergies are one example of this that come from the workings of our immune system. It is generally good that the human immune system is capable of adapting to new threats to learn how to fight them, but allergies are an example of when the immune system attacks "threats" that are perfectly safe for most people.
