We have a massive windstorm going through Portland right now. It's times like this I'm quite glad I don't have to shelter myself from the storm using trees, bushes, or conveniently angled big rocks.

Or, for that matter, that I don't have a huge chance of dying from internal parasites.

Or that getting food doesn't involving chasing anywhere from 200 to over 1000 pounds of meat on the hoof, usually with big antlers

I was out in that for a bit! It was actually hilarious until I started getting cold and wet. Fortunately, that's what Coyote gave us fire for. :3

I have over a mile to walk from work to the train station. I could take the bus, but I'd get home later, and sometimes it doesn't even run. So I pushed my way through the wind the whole way, glad I didn't have to try to use the umbrella!

My umbrella's the straight-spine kind, so it can be opened even in the winds we had tonight. However it also acted like a sail. That point where I stepped in the mud crossing over towards the MAX station practically turned into a Wile E Coyote moment.

ZIP! Preeeoooww! RUTCH!

Luckily was smart enough to close umbrella and not hit trees.

Yeah, that's pretty much why I just dealt with the bit of rain that was blowing around like little BBs.

We may romanticize it and make it far more idyllic than it actually would be...

But you never see a Fox filling out a W-4 form for deductions on her MICE!!!

Would that be part of the story "Monkey King creates havoc in Heaven"? I'd like to find a translation of that...

No, Da Nao Tian Gong (the chinese title) is actually part of the Journey to the West story. ^^ it's just one little chapter.

At once point I had a link to where you could by the VCD of the old movie that was made of that chapter... all in Mandarin, of course, but the music is nice.

Oooh... Thank you! :)

What's spooky is that I JUST picked up a "retrospective" sci-fi magazine, and they did an article on each of these old shows, some classic (Blake's 7), some terrible (The toy-toons rage of the 80's), some really obscure... (Monkey)
And reading it- I'm going "Dang, this sounds REALLY familiar...why?"

Wow Apparently the concept of Paperwork in the underworld is common thought for the Japanese

The story of the Monkey King is Chinese actually. But then, the Japanese borrowed a lot from the Chinese throughout their history.

Yes I know they have. And I am aware that "The Journey to the West Chinese" I've read parts of it. Dragon Ball is accually based on it

As for my therioside being simpler than my homid one. Well that depends if my Asperger's can be transered to a wolf mind. =\

I don't my wolf pack would like one of their memeber to suddenly have panic attack during a hunt. Or go through sensory meltdowns, which might be worse since my sense are hyperstrong.

Had decide your mouth was fun for exploring?

Though a sythasyte wolf would be funny

Pack: *is read to howl*
Wolf: WAAAIT! DON'T! BigFang howl's is weird shade of blue! It won't harmonize with the fusiacha howls!
Pack: *looks annoyed*

That signature makes perfect sense if you own ferrets...

Realizing that this is commenting nearly a month after the post. Oh well...

I'll second that. Paperwork's a killer.

*month late comment*

I'd say their lives actually are simpler, just not as pleasant as some might think. Sure, you've got to hunt for your food to survive, but that's the fun part! Sure, there are pack dynamics, but at least in a wolf pack they're more overt than in a human family (mostly).

Parasites are a problem, as are weather conditions.. but even if you had a shorter life span, it'd still be awesome.

(Broken bones though, those would just suck. For as long as you're still alive. >_>)

A small price to pay for a wild life, I'd say.. but to each their own. :P

When I think of wild life, I tend to think of getting shot/stuffed/put in a zoo or otherwise killed or hunted. <:) You'd have to stick me way out somewhere where I'm gonna be safe. Or just make me someone's pet fox. Then I'd be spoiled rotten. :x PS: Your icon is cute! XD

I know this comic was posted awhile ago but...

It did make me think. The comic here kind of reminds me of a comment Bill Maher made on home-raised cats "Sure, it's a fur-ball with a broken spirit, but yes, it technically does live longer than an outdoor cat."
Then I got to thinking when I saw this; is my therioside 'better'? Well, no, it's simply part of me; and I think that is the beauty of being a therianthrope. I can have the experience (past life, current soul, what-have-you) of being a (in my case) wild animal but within the context of my human body and mind. What a blessing, and what a pain it can be at times!

This made me think of my favorite poem, "Abnegation" by Adrienne Rich:


Not easier, not harder, just different.

I've seen my mate get frustrated like this. Often he'll just scowl at whatever it is, without being able to pinpoint just what's getting to him, or communicate it. Seems to be a therian thing, body language and emotion, not usually as much head-logic as non-therians.

Could part of the frustration with "the system" be that it's gotten so far from where it's supposed to be, even by non-therian standards, that it doesn't serve any healthy purpose? Paperwork in a system that really served people might not be that bad - but the fact that it doesn't serve any purpose unless you're `the system' makes it more stupid. Let's face it, in nature we have animals that cull the sick and the weak from a herd, keeping that herd fit and healthy. If we had the same thing with politics, the system would be fit and healthy, too. And maybe not suck so much? I'm not suggesting hunting down corrupt politicians - well, maybe in law - but as society we need the natural sense of pure feelings, intuition, and direct uncomplicated sincerity that therians usually have. We need you, and who and what you are! Don't be intimidated by society, make it back down instead! Leave your mark on it, and show it which of you is in charge! Or at least, show others, usually non-therians, a better example to live out. We've got very few role models left anymore. =)

Watching Big Cat Diaries makes this pretty clear.

A sprained ankle can be a death sentence for a cheetah - they have to run marathons just to eat.
