Did you read about our #BeanHouse?
I was able to get some matte clear-coat spray this week and hit the sign a few times, although this stuff seemed to soak up the paint like a sponge. We just used some particleboard from an old dresser drawer. It was the perfect size. I did the marker & colored the beans, the rest was all Molly.
Molly also got a tomato plant from her Grandma BB, so we planted it right out front. We tried the fork trick there too to deter bunnies, but if I remember right they’re not huge fans of tomatoes. You never know what else is out & around either.
We also put out some organic bloodmeal to provide nutrients and hopefully deter critters. Molly reminded me to put down grass clippings because they hold moisture.
I was thinking about putting out some cinnamon to keep the rabbits away too. I just saw that coffee grounds keep away snails. Do you have any other tips & tricks that seem to have worked for you in the past? We did use garlic clips last year. They seemed to work, but we did have a few incidents of snacking on our peppers.
No beans sprouting yet, but our Spanish onions just popped from seeds we planted a while ago.

One thing people seem to be good at is arguing over texts. We can argue different points about the same information. How many interpretations are there for the constitution? And that’s just one language. Hit up the Torah, Bible, or Koran that’s been translated into different languages a few times and it’s absolute chaos. People seem to focus on minutiae instead of the big picture.
I can easily imagine a post-apocalyptic dystopian future where the Star Wars films have become the basis for religion. People will subscribe to their own versions of the Jedi and Sith philosophies and have an overall high regard for the force. Some people will say it’s all fiction. Magicians will use levitation and spoon-bending illusions to “prove” that the force is real.
I can imagine sects breaking out of each group of trilogies, finding their own interpretations of the overall themes to be the only correct way to see things.
Some will say Anakin/Vader brought balance to the force. Some will say it was Luke. Some may focus on the new characters to come. Some cults will say you have to go to the dark side before you can be redeemed by the light and that is the only true path to Jedi salvation.
Some will argue that the original films unedited are the only true word. Some will argue that the standalone films and animated series are like the apocrypha, and can’t be true canon.
Monasteries will open and instead of vows of silence, they will talk like Yoda.
Books will be written trying to prove that the holiday special did in fact exist.
People will kill each other arguing over who shot first.
I think you now have a script for Idiocracy 2: Idiocracier.
