Say you had one bird in your hand,

But you saw two other birds in the bush that are a possibility to catch.

Would you give up the one bird you had to try and capture the two that are in the bush? :shrug

    I'd keep the bird I had and still catch the other two.

    What do you plan on doing with said birds when done?

    Negative ghost rider. Hang around with Uncle Rich a little more and I'll teach you a thing or three.

    1. Three birds are better than one or two birds.
    2. You're willing to, or considering, losing the first one anyway. What do you have to lose?

    You're young, you have nothing to lose. As you get older you'll understand and you'll be glad you listened to me.

    you can turn them into carrier birds, pets, food, fight them, its pretty much what ever you want to do with the birds.

    Is three birds worth the extra risk of trying to hang on to the first bird whilst trying to capture the other two?
    My odds decrease the more birds i try to keep

    i would be upset if i was left with zero birds to my name :(

    Just to clarify by "birds" you mean filipino hookers?
  • MenziesMenzies Posts: 19,289 AG
    If I purposely did not want to have any bird's at all then would let the one in the hand go and pretend to go after the two in the bush but not really.

    Then I would be on my own and not have any birds to worry about.

    It really depends on what the bush looks like,

    Is it neatly trimmed or over grown.

    Is it musty smelling or fresh and delightful.

    Is it in the middle of a path and heavily used or is off of the beating path and never been disturbed.

    Does it get plenty of sunshine or very little.

    Does it pucker with delight or is it all closed up.

    Is it hermaphroditic or does it need another to prosper.


    These are all important questions that must be asked before making a journey grasshopper.....

    At your age bud you should have the birds on a schedule, a rotation. If you at any time have zero birds then we have some serious issues.

    Listen, don't even think about getting married till you're at least thirty or so, if at all. In the mean time, live every day like it was your last and take advantage of every single opportunity that presents itself and then some.

    Your welcome.

    I dont think were talking about the same kind of birds!

    The birds you are talking about, my main bird just recently flew away. Now i have a full nest of birds that are wanting me to feed them a worm.

    If he could get down on himself, maybe he wouldn't need the birds??

    Catch as many birds as you can when you can. One day the birds will be too fast and you'll have no birds except that one you held on to. and it just keeps poopin on your porch
