- Wondering woods at night. Running across roads in front of vehicles. Walking by Bluff creek. Surprising humans.....ha, so fun... Throwing rocks at intruders. Making people think I am there when I am not... Breaking cameras.... Eating.....mmmmmm.....food. Catching those pesky kids that keep eating dried cow meat around me. I WANT SOME!. Painting humans with their own devices=fun! Acting like a tree for a day to watch those humans wonder around the woods like ants. Oh and occasionally stealing computer equipment when my wireless satellite internet stops workin'...

SYDNEY (Reuters) - A man in Australia is auctioning his life -- his house, his job, his clothes and his friends -- on eBay, after his marriage broke up, saying he wants to start a new life.
"It's time to move. A completely fresh start. I want to see where life takes me," Ian Usher, 44, told Australian television on Tuesday from Perth in Western Australia state.
Usher said he was auctioning his life as "a package" with his house in Perth valued at around A$420,000 (192,186 pounds).
"Hi there, my name is Ian Usher, and I have had enough of my life! I don't want it any more! You can have it if you like!," reads his Web site www.alife4sale.com, which has a link to eBay for bidders.
Usher said his life auction, which starts on June 22, included not only his house, a car, a motorbike, a jet ski and a spa, but also an introduction to "great friends" and a job at a rug shop in Perth for a trial two-week period.
"When it's over, I will just walk out the front door, take my wallet, my passport and start a new life," he said.
Usher said his ex-wife had heard of his auction.
"Her last comment was, 'it seems a bit mental to me'," he said.
I would ebay my life but living in the forest by yourself and surviving while avoiding humans at all cost....doesn't sound too appealing to people I would think.
Anyone wanna bit on it? Or would if they had the money?
18 March 2008 - 02:53 PMHow has everyone been? I haven't been on because I don't have the same job and I don't live at the same place. You know...life changes. I'm pretty busy these days. I'm working on building a recording studio, performance hall, dorms, trails, ponds...etc. (all off the grid in the forest of course ha) with my dad on his land. It's going to be a nice little retreat/recording studio in the hill country just outside Austin. I don't get on the computer that much. I'll come by here when I can though. It looks like the forums have changed or adapted slightly this year. I see some of the same people. Which is awesome. Evil and Puz must have like a million posts now. haha.
...and now....the moment you all have been waiting for....
FISH IN SPACE! haha
STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Scientists plan to launch 60 tiny fish on a zero gravity rocket ride from above the Arctic Circle on Monday to try to plumb the secrets of motion sickness.
Tomas Hedqvist, project manager for Sweden’s Esrange Space Centre, said the baby cichlid fish will head 260 km (160 miles) into the air on an 11-metre (36-foot) two-stage rocket, where they will experience six minutes of weightlessness.
Experimenters Reinhard Hilbig and Ralf Anken of the University of Stuttgart-Hohenheim in Germany will train six video cameras on the fish, each of which will be housed in its own aquarium, to see how they react.
“Fish, when they get motion sick, begin tumbling around, swimming in circles and miss their balance,” he said, adding that some fish do not suffer from motion sickness and seem to adapt quickly to a changed environment.
Some of the fish, which were flown from Germany to Sweden’s far north in special aquariums, will be housed in a slowly turning centrifuge which will offer some gravity while others will be in a pure zero G state, Hedqvist said.
