Back to the barter system. Hopefully my credit card company accepts oxen, parched corn and a keg of vinegar as payment.

yum, parched corn & vinegar. I'm like Pavlov's dog just thinking about. but I'll pass on that tough *** ox meat. got any chickens instead? I have 3 pieces of peppermint fully intact with lint, a ball of yarn and some rusted tin cans. I'm sure any good MacGyver worth his salt can make something useful of these goodies. oh yeah, got any salt, too?

Even though I can't monetize off this video, at least I'm now eligible for monetization haha. Thanks, YouTube recommendation algorithm!

A combination of MacGuyver and Little House on The Prairie. Wait ... get NBC on the phone.

Re: Off-Topic

Today's the first time ever a bird ever got inside my house.

Somehow it got into the fireplace(which was supposed to be double locked). Took a while of figuring out what was in there to begin with. Could've been a rat or squirrel.

Got a giant garbage bag, covered the door to the fireplace, opened the door, and it flew in the bag before I sprinted to the nearest door and let it free outside. Next thing I know, I turn around to the door which I left open and...ANOTHER bird flew out of the house too! So there were actually 2 birds in there. Have no idea how 1 or 2 managed to get in when the chimney is locked off and inside has an extra latch to seal it off from a second spot.

I'm glad it's safe and managed to get out somewhat easily (and the second one went straight from the fireplace to the open door, which wasn't even on the same floor as the fireplace). I was expecting to find something died in there, or an angry bird.

Wow. Unbelievable! Luckily they both flew out of the house right away (well, the 1st one it sounds like you had to "assist" outside), otherwise things could've gotten messy...

Re: Off-Topic

I don't know how to find the thread, and it might not exist anymore as it could have been a part of the old Everything Else forum, but there was an old thread somebody made once about how a raven flew into his house and was asking for suggestions on how to get it out.

One person suggested opening all the windows and doors in hopes that it would just fly away, and somebody responded to that by saying: "Or three more will fly in."

They both might've flown outside by themselves, it's why I had the outside door ready just in case.

Oddly enough, these are the same kind of birds which live around my house(in trees/shrubs around the yard) and are the ones I occasionally feed (moreso in the winter months) and chase cats away from on the rare instances there's a cat wandering the yard.

Glad it wasn't a bigger bird or ones which attack people(I have those around here too), that would've been worse.

A raven or any bigger bird would be terrifying.

Although most houses do/should have screen windows so that would've been harder to get a bird out since you'd have to pop open the screen on the windows, and also hope nothing comes inside.

Birds fly towards light, so if you want to get it out, most of house should be as dark as you can make it and have the window/door be the brightest area it sees.
