so i have no idea what kind of bird of prey i saw was.  palindrome!  my buddy said he'd been seeing a redtail hawk stoop his shit.  that's a seven minute walk.  but that weren't no redtail hawk.  white head and brown body.  google images tells me the bird exists in java and northern australia.  and most likely india because they have everything great.  so that's not it.  it couldn't have been a bald eagle.  any birders out there?

There are bald eagles in town.  It could have been an osprey.

Itís pretty hard to tell them apart.  They all kind of have brownish wings and white heads.  And then from the front when they are perched they all have like speckled bellies. Then the juveniles look different than mature birds and females and males are kinda different.

Birding is hard as hell.

i've been told that osprey's look like they're really struggling to fly, "labored flapping of wings".

This kid in the library is just staring at me. I'm not doing anything out of the ordinary, just typing on my laptop. This kid has issues.

How does one bring a ringer at bar trivia?

For that matter, how does one *be* a ringer at bar trivia? Did you lose to Ken Jennings and that Austin kid?

I go to bar trivia and the other great teams have Jeopardy champions on them. I think that counts as a ringer.

Roger Craig is famous in the Jeopardy world for having the single highest payday ever and he has been on teams against us.

Legit question. First two things that popped into my head, too.
