    If I have a First World Problem in a Third World Country

    Does that make it a Second World Problem or a Fourth World Problem?

    I'm doing the Christmas Bird Count and I'm having a hard time finding a Pyrrhuloxia. Should be easy but it's not. So I'm spending my time driving around in dicey areas strewn with discarded construction debris while using my Leica binoculars out of my Suburban window.

    I need a Lounge reading on this. Right now.
    You'd be better off with a netbook, they do everything better.

    If I get to second base with a third world girl, does that make it a first world problem? She should be easy, but she's not. So I'm spending my time driving around in dicey areas strewn with discarded "NFC Champions" t-shirts while peeling my greenbacks out of my 501's.

    I need a trip to Haiti. Right now.

    It all stems from La Niņa. They're relatively nonmigratory but considering the New Mexico weather this year there's a higher likelihood that there are more new ground nests this year from regular nesting areas nearing stream beds being over run by flooding and fire.

    I'd be like hanging a bag of cactus fruit from the hood ornament of my Chevy Suburban, brimmed hat in wujiao!

    Been there twice now. I'd recommend against it.

    I found an American Redstart in a mangrove estuary via kayak on Saturday.

    Too late for wujiao, that opportunity has passed.

    If you have a 1st World Problem in a 3rd World Country, you know how I feel now....
    poast count +1
    But .... a long NNC session and jerkin' the gherkin to some old-school pr0n... not necessarily in that order. Much cheaper than H&B. JustTooBig
    mtymxdh is right... you have been scammed my dear. Creakyknees
