    The most expensive eggs I have ever eaten have come from suburban neighbors who got a few chickens.

    Feed, hen houses, chicken tractors, fencing, supplies, heat lamps, vermin control, vet bills ...

    The good thing is they weren't passing on those costs.

    Chicken coops with wheels so you can push them around.

    Oh brother.

    Our neighbors just turn a few loose in the yard, toss out some feed once in a while. Seems to work for them.

    You know. The cost of a hatchet and a little salt, pepper, and flour.

    Oh, we have coyotes, but for the most part large dogs keep them away from homes.

    Of course, every so often a neighbor's chicken wanders into our yard and our Doberman loves it to death.

    Primers, but they’ve been unobtainium for quite a while now.

    They're obtainable here, but only at one gun store, and they charge $20+ per 100. If it's urgent, I'm glad I have the option, but that's expensive.

    Ouch! That’s even worse gouging than I’ve seen locally

    For the non-primer-buyers, these were usually $3.50-$4.00/hundred before the 2020 election.

    I remember primers, ammo, and powder being hard or impossible to find, and really expensive when you did, in 2016, too. This isn’t new.

    Whatever helps you sleep at night, bud. Ammo shortages have been going on for a while, and anyone that’s interested knows it. People can blame any party they want, but hoarders are the cause of the shortage. Fear sells, and rage sells even better.

    That guy says the 3/8 socket, but in my nut driver set, the 1/4 inch one is the one that got so worn that it had to be replaced!

    Nope. Before metrics, it was the 7/16"

    I never lost a socket until I had to start keeping track of metrics too. Metric sockets are a conspiracy I tell you. They are a conspiracy designed to sell more tools, and to keep selling more of the same tools, over and over.

    No joke.
    I used to work with a cat lady...
    A stray started hanging around her house, so she took it in, got it fixed, etc. After a week or two, someone came by knocking on her door looking for their lost cat...

    From the other side, maybe she sued for damages to property.
