this is what happened to me this morning. freaking crow just wouldn't budge. i didn't get a video of the part where the crow was just hanging onto my wipers. i turned em on and the crow just hanged on. i sprayed my windshield, and it wouldn't budge at all. don't mind the swearing :P

and no, i didn't run over the crow nor did the van behind me. i checked my rearview as i was exiting the lot and it was just hopping and derping around. creepy thing was, there were a few other crows that were circling above my car before i reversed and drove outta the lot.

I had a crow encounter last week too. It's cause June & July are when the kids leave the nest and learn to fly . So if you're ever wondering why crows are squawking and dive-bombing you, there's probably a nestling or fledgling nearby.

You can tell that they're nestlings by the blue eyes (versus brown for adult). Even though they're close to full size, they're clumsy and can barely fly. The crows circling above are probably adults trying to stop you from kidnapping their kid.

Are BF Goodrich tires made in the states? And if they are if I was to buy them in Bellingham then there's no duty correct?

Hey guys I woke up with my left ear unable to hear properly. It did hurt a bit yesterday and (a bit less) this morning when I cuff my ears with my palm (as a suction).

Anyone know what might have happened?

Go see a doctor instead of listening to RS pharmacists

Sounds like a shitload of wax finally clogged your hearing.
And the suction thing...of course it hurts.....

If you haven't been to a walk in yet, just put some baby oil in your ears, let it soak for 5 minutes-10, let it dribble out

then see the walk-in the next day, tell him yayaya, flush that shit out.

This happened to me once, figured it was electrolyte imbalance or some shiet. Went away after like a day

This. Just hit up a walk-in clinic and get a flush. I did it yesterday because I had to get my ears looked at for an unrelated reason and they found some buildup. Takes like five minutes. Makes you feel like you have superhuman hearing.

While it can be wax or whatever else, it can also be an ear infection (something that often plagued me as a child) which can lead to deafness if not treated properly. If it lasts more than a day, go see a doctor to make sure it gets treated properly, whatever it is.

i have a question... regarding high school marks

long story short:

- i get 80% first term, 82% second term in Strength & Conditioning class
- during first & second term, i attend classes and perform well. i miss class sometimes, but barely
- i skipped like 3-4 of his classes to prepare for commencement & prom during last few weeks of school
- i go back to class this week and he drops me from 82% to 46% third term and coach threatens to fail me and not give me the credit for the course
- i am also a working student, so i apologized & told him straight up that i skipped his class in order to prepare. he doesn't seem to have a sense of understanding, and instead proceeds to give me attitude & bitch at me

final grades are calculated by adding the percentages of all three terms and dividing by 3, but is he allowed to do this (fail me)?
since i have 80% + 82%, am i in the safe? even if he decides to be a fucking whore and gives me like 5% for third term

any insight would be appreciated, thanks in advance
