Learned a lesson
#1
Some months ago I was contacted by a fellow from the FBI. He had read on a hunting forum I post at that I would be interested in hosting Wounded Warriors/New to area FBI employees on duck hunting trips in the local area and would provide everything. The local Elks Lodge also volunteered to provide funding for hunting licenses as well. Last weekend, a couple of these fellows (Including their FBI boss) came down for the local dove hunt, all went well.
We then finalized plans we'd talked about for several weeks to have a get acquainted BBQ for his people wanting to hunt. Said I'd get a group of the best equipped and knowledgeable hunters on this side of state (I know and regularly hunt with many) and they'd help these new employees out this coming season.
After purchasing two large Briskets, 12 racks of Baby Back ribs and a box of fried chicken, ($200 worth) renting large tables and loading the patio with several Traeger pellet stoves and Weber BBQs, as well as all the ladies making pot luck dishes and desserts.....None of the FBI people showed up!
The only Wounded Warrior who came is a friend of mine I've hunted with before on several occasions.
No phone call...nothing, just blew us off!
Leaves a sour taste. Pennywise
Those friends that came were anesthetized with several Duck Farts, and so the day was saved, but I'm still dealing with a slow 'BURN'. Won't be no FBI guys in any of our blinds this year!
Think I'll have a Duck Fart!

OH! BTW: It turns out, most of them were new from California.
So, the words Autumn and Fall are not to be capitalized?
They are in my world!

What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done; and there is nothing new under the sun.
Is there a thing of which it is said, "See, this is new?"It has been already, in the ages before us. Ecc 1: 9-10

Why were the FBI needed for a Wounded Warriors project?  Did you CALL Wounded Warriors DIRECTLY and see if the Fracking Boldfaced Infidels (FBI) were ACTUALLY doing this FOR them, or for "monitoring" them so as to NOT tell 'true stories' ???

FBI was SKY HIGH behind 911, Oklahoma City bombing, Sandy Hook, Boston Bombing, I could go on but you get my drift.

I mean CHEERS to YOU for doing the favor for these folks as they EARNED it,   Applause Applause Worship Worship but did the FBI "earn it"? Naughty

I think that's when they planted a mic
so they could monitor your party for any thought crimes.

Did you check to see whether they had webbed earlobes?

Is it coincidence that Ohr translates to EAR???

Does it not refer to the secret "opening" ritual operation
that made it possible for him to actually live out his
atavistic yearning for The Swamp?

Study finds people flock, or behave similarly to others, despite reasoning abilities

Crowd panics, market bubbles, and other unpredictable collective behaviors would not happen if people were smart about these things and just thought through their behavior before they acted. Right? That's the perspective in economics, and even psychology and sociology.



But a UC Davis researcher looked at how people behave in simple reasoning games and found that people are usually driven to "flock," or behave similarly to others in a given situation.

Quote: OH! BTW: It turns out, most of them were new from California.


Seth Frey, an assistant professor of communication at UC Davis, said this happens "even when people use the fancy reasoning processes that are supposed to make humans so special."

Frey is lead author of an article, "Cognitive mechanisms for human flocking dynamics." The paper appeared in the Journal of Computational Social Science this month.

"The basic idea is that we have this preconception about fads and panics and flocks and herds, that they are driven by our basest animal spirits, and that adding thoughtfulness or education or intelligence would make those things go away," Frey said.

"This paper shows that people who are being thoughtful (specifically people who are doing dizzying 'what you think I think you think I think' reasoning) still get caught up in little flocks, in a way that the game they end up playing is driven less by what seems rational and more by what they think the others think they're going to do."

Each game used in the study is based on a very different way of thinking and should have evoked different varieties of reasoning by players, Frey said. But they did not. The same sophisticated flocking behavior bore out in all three games.

Flocking can be good or bad

Researchers looked at the behavior of hundreds of players, who came from student and online pools, repeated for many rounds of the games over time. They analyzed behavior over high and low payoffs, over multiple populations and with very experienced players, with the well-known "Beauty Contest" game and two they devised for the research, "Mod Game" and "Runway Game," Frey said.

Rules and methods of winning each game varied.

In Beauty Contest, players receive a reward for guessing the number 0-100 whose number is closest to two-thirds the value of the average of all numbers submitted by all players. In the Mod Game, players choose an integer between 1 and 24. Players earn points by choosing a number precisely one above another's number, except that 1 beats 24, such as in Paper-Rock-Scissors, in that every number can get beaten by another. And in the Runway Game, players practice the same one-upmanship of the Mod Game, but they can choose literally any number, -1, a million, pi, anything. These subtle differences lead to big differences in theory, but they don't seem to matter to players, who get caught up in their group mates' flocking no matter what.

Frey explained that flocking, in life, can be good or bad. It can be good for schools of fish, flocking birds, or team cyclists in a race—where in each case group members gain a greater ability to obtain food, be safe or to win. But flocking can be undesirable in a stock market fall or a riot, for instance, where safety, survival or "winning" can be jeopardized.

"...These games show that sophisticated human reasoning processes may be just as likely to drive the complex, often pathological, social dynamics that we usually attribute to reactive, emotional, nondeliberative reasoning," the researchers conclude.

"In other words, human intelligence may as likely increase as decrease the complexity and unpredictability of social and economic outcomes."

They should just consume their down the rabbit-holistic soy products and leave  red meats and roast fowls to normal folk. Lotza gravy and saucy dip.


Serve them local marsh plants  and tubers with salad dressing and an algae consume as soup.
Local wild berries in a 'smoothie' for just dessert.
