My kind of town?

This almost seems my kind of place....but something tells me its doomed.Best hope the humans don't breed like the flies.

If I lived in a place like that I would feel like I should get to know them all. Knowing 30 people would be a massive increase on my current tally.

De Campo said...

Hmmm, I bet there is a military post nearby.

Seems like exactly the type of real estate defence types love.

Sweet Cheeks said...

So with a human population of 30, pretty much everybody gets a chance to be an elected official?

Maybe they just play Rock, Paper, Scissors to decide...

powdergirl said...

Phhht. Thirty people? I've got nearly that many living in my head. Only half the flies and sheep though.

Best hope the humans have better personal habits than the flies!

Having just seen a respectable-looking middle-aged woman (not an obvious vagrant or mental case) squatting down and urinating in a Tube subway in broad daylight, I think I prefer the company of the flying vermin...

And yes - the Tube station had loos. There was no excuse.

I knew I'd get some incisive comments from some familiar sources!

Blue: I'd say `get out more` but you do! I'll think on this problem for a while and get back to you.

De Campo: Well spotted Cap'n. Have added a second picture to confirm your observation. It's a 60's era `Seaslug` anti aircraft missile from the old County Class Destroyers of the Royal Navy. It's now posing at the former military weapons test site at Woomera. So old is the tech` that what was left of these were used as targets for the new generation `Seawolf` AA missile (dubbed a `Hittile` on account of it doesn't miss.)

Sweetcheeks: Hopefully not enough baddies to form a street gang.

PG: As a woman once advised me, "Unexpected laughter? Check your flies".

JuliaM: I am so sorry you were subjected to such a sight. I used to lock folks up for that. Oh the nostalgia!

How I miss the old biologist days when fruit flies were my only friends Hog! My only mistake was in failing to realise what heaven this was and enter into relations with humans! Humans are much like flies, only noisier and more irritating. Even the old 'sea slug' seems a little OTT as a fly deterrent, though if it's for 'yob control' I shall move in!

You show a pic of a vague cruise missile precursor Hog and the word verification turns up 'greanam' - are we being watched?

Hogday said...

ACO: Greanam??? Holy Crap!!! That is seriously spook-ie. I spent quite a few nights amongst the cruise brigade in the days when the USSR was the perceived enemy - now its just the Ukrainian Gas Board, how times enlighten us.

Not knowing that many people is not a "problem" Mr Hogday, if those merry few are good people.

Hogday said...

"We few! We happy few! We Band of Brothers"! (Although if our William wrote that today it would probably be required to read `...we Band of Siblings`).

Blue Eyes said...

Surely it would be "a loose and welcoming association of wider siblings, none to be excluded on the basis of race, sexuality or political affiliation".

@Blue: :-))
followed by, "Ok, if everyone feels it appropriate, move towards those currently opposing our point of view and see if you can persuade them to perhaps meet us halfway so we can come to some agreem....." (at this point conversation ends as some bastard can't wait for the WMD report and opens fire anyway. The end.
