Ohhhh-kayyyyy... Smile

U was raised hunting too, but I never played zen-level mental chess with the game. My rules were simple:

Squirrel & deer: Be Quiet and keep your eyes open.

Turkey: Be quiet, keep still and keep your eyes open.

Rabbit & Pheasant: Stomp around and make noise to flush them out.

I was not getting zen with the targets (you should be aware of making bonds with prey). But the other wildlife in the area.

I took 36 rabbits from a golf course about 2 weeks back. No need to stomp 'em. they were lining up for it. They were flipping to death and the rabbits next to them would just stare then carry on, Duh!
got a few £ for them at the local butchers. Smile

Pet Psychics do not use Cold Reading.
By definition cold reading is when someone doesn't tell you something but you know it (from an effect point of view). This is totally different.
This is totally legit and REAL.
She actually communicates with the animals in ENGLISH. Oh sorry wait that is pictures. So which picture do you use for What is your name? or what do you want?
It is all so fascinating it makes me wanna puke. The only tangible thing in pet psychics is the BS that you can actually touch and smell but you can't see because it is only Images. Whatever

How about Psychics that are pets?

We've all heard of animals acting out days before an unforseen event like hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes for example. I am changing the topic somewhat, as animals are far likely to be psychic to us than vice versa.

Did you ever notice that Elmer Fudd never gets the 'wabbit.'

If he stopped looking for 'wabbit holes' in the forest and quit being quiet, and started stomping through cornfields, he might have had better luck.

Okay...terrible tangent, but I just had to.

Lol Dr.Steve!
Elmer uses a shotty, I think that is why he is so unlucky. He might get 1 wabbit but hes gonna scare any others for about 5 miles.
If any wabbits are psychic they have not shown any signs of it. I use a scoped rifle with choke (suppressor) so they don't even know about their transition between states of being Smile
Plus, as it's a headshot. it leaves the meat intact. You don't have to pick the shott out of it at the table (I hate when that happens)

It doesn't help that the wabbit he keeps looking for can tie his barrel in a knot and stretch it up through the holes behind him. I wish I could do that trick with plugging the barrel with just my finger. Oh, to be a cartoon. Smile

Partizan,

Hate to burst the bubble, but a shotgun IS the recommended firearm for rabbit hunting, and scaring other rabbits is not an issue. In fact, getting other rabbits alerted to 'flight' is a good thing. The more that are ready to run for it, the more chances you will get to bag one.

And, yes, Catoe, Elmer never had a chance anyway, thanks to the ingenuity of Bob Clampett, Fred Avery and Chuck Jones.

The idea of pet psychics is simultaneously funny and scary, but is it any more ridiculous than the notion of talking to dead people? Many people are gullible, but I think it's more that they want to believe in this type of metaphysical nonsense, so they willfully disregard any skepticism they might have.

Hmmmm, now that is something to try.
Next time, after I get a kill. I will try to commune with the dead animals spirit.
Hey! Infact I should have about 700 wabbit spirits on my employ [will not disclose other targets].
Ok! the wabbit from 16/04/1997 says to me... "your pet cat Pansy, is still alive and needs help to get back home. Her grey and white coat is covered in mud!".
I knew I should have used more paprika when I cooked that rabbit.

I read something interesting the other day in Readers Digest..yes that's right - Readers Digest. A magazine my mom has given me a suscription for every year since I was 12. Anyway back to the story. The tale involved a man whose dog kept sniffing his leg in a peculiar way often prodding it with his nose. He went to check it out and it turned out he had a cancerous tumor which if left untreated would have eventually killed him. The story went on to say that the medical community are actually thinking of training dogs to detect cancer in people. Probably not pyschic I admit but more to do with their keen sense of smell.

Dpe I killed myself laughing with your imitation of Elmer! Or do you really talk like that..maybe sort of like Mike Tyson? Now that's a funny thought.

Japanese boffins noted that's dogs can detect illness. They have worked out that much information is contained in your breath. They are making a machine to smell your breath and give you a diagnosis.

The Pet Psychic lives right here in Houston. At the time that my wife retired from her job with the financial investment company she worked for, the Pet Psychic had squirreled away quite a nest egg from her dogged determination to ferret out the facts about the pet owners. Just because some of them were society people, whose lives were open books, didn't deter her from making her "astounding revelations."

I just saw her on Animal Planet bout' 15 minutes ago! It does not get more ridiculous than this, I must say! Although, she did do a KILLER Center Tear with a leaf to an unsuspecting Koala! Smile

Hi Jimtron...you speculated..."but I think it's more that they want to believe in this type of metaphysical nonsense, so they willfully disregard any skepticism they might have."

I tend to disagree. 'They' are simply ignorant and in many (most?) cases just plain STUPID. Despite the 'all are created equal' stuff and political correctness attempting to blind us into not revealing what we really think...they are just STUPID. The correct information to draw correct conclusions is readilly available to everyone...so the ignorant can be 'enlightened'...but the STUPID ones will always wake up stupid no matter what they learn...well...learn is a bit much...how about hear. "Little 'Fluffy' hated Alpo but you forced him to eat it. Now he's gay and very unhappy."

Animals are smarter than we think they are, but not as intelligent as we would like to believe. My mother had a French poodle that could say "Mama," "Hungry," "Outside," and "I love you." She (the poodle, not Mom) knew what all of them meant. She would go up to my mother and say, "Mama." She would go to the back door and say "Outside." She would go to her empty bowl and say, "Hungry." And if you gave her a nice rub, she would say, "I love you."

It was a very spooky sound when she did it. My Dad taught her how to do it, after seeing the talking chihuahua on the Carson show.

However, this does not mean that she was psychic or any of that other rubbish. The pet psychic proves that no matter how outrageous the product, there are people who will buy it. You just have to find them.
