urban ecosystems

1 Name: Anonymous : 2020-01-11 02:43
sometimes interesting things happen in the outside world beyond our homes.

today, while i was busy parking my car near my home, i was greeted by one of my neighbor's daughters, who was about to enter her home. she's a university student, by the way, and i believe she was with her boyfriend at that time. but the most interesting thing about the encounter was that i hadn't seen her and her boyfriend around the neighborhood for at least two years.

also a few days ago, while i was at home, i searched through the cushions of my couch. i ended up finding a pen, a few lego pieces, and a quarter and penny. but i'm more happy about the pen than the lost change, though, because the pen still works!

what about you? is there anything interesting going on in your urban ecosystem?

My cat always finds the things I lost and leaves them behind the furniture, so I always get a surprise when I clean up. I love my cat.

no, unfortunately, i live in a rural area. essentially at the edge of a national forest. unless i'm out in town the most i see near my home are my neighbors and often times not even that because everyone keeps to themselves.

I just got an emergency alert on my phone for a supposed nuclear meltdown in my city, then a second alert saying that the first was made in error. That was a fun way to wake up on a Sunday morning.

the urban ecosystem was very nice today. it was bright and sunny out, and even though it was supposed to be 51 degrees F (11 C) out, it really wasn't that cold. the lack of wind at the time probably contributed to this.

it looks like all the rain and snow from last week have evaporated away...

how is the wildlife?

I don't live in the same sense of urban as most of you are probably accustomed. But I do live in city limits within a small town. I haven't really explored things in about a decade now. Crime shot up and the people are very hostile. Does anyone on here have any tips on how to keep myself safe to explore things?

studies have shown that the vast majority of disturbances occur in a handful of places, or "hot spots". this implies these areas have a reputation and an environment beneficial for causing disruptions. so it would be wise to avoid inhabiting those kinds of shady places.

for example, do not enter a dark alley near a dilapidated bar in the slums in the middle of the night in order to access an ATM at the end of the alley. but this is just commonsense.

I have read somewhere that being naked with a rifle on your back and one on your hands makes you safe.

I rode out into town today and there was a black man standing on the side of the street yelling while digging his ass. Does that count as interesting? It was literally my first time into town this year.
