Does anyone remember seeing the documentary where the old women in the Outback were chasing feral cats and clubbing them over the head to bring back and eat for dinner? I was telling someone about it, but I can't remember the name of the doc. Can't seem to find it with the googleizer and I want to show it to a friend.

In a country with 100 million sheep and 25 million kangaroos, they chase feral cats? Possible I suppose.

Apparently, feral cats are a huge problem. These older women, 65-80 or so, grab a burlap bag and a big stick. They find a cat hiding by a bush and whack the bush. Cat goes screaming to another bush. Woman walks over and whacks that bush. Cat runs again. After three or four runs, the cat, built for speed, not endurance, can't run anymore. Old woman whacks cat on head and stuffs it in the bag. Rinse and repeat. After they've caught however many, they take the cats back and cook them on a spit over an open fire. The show was something like NG, but I can't find the darn thing. If anyone recalls, i'd appreciate it.

all I found was this bbc report from 2007: [URL=http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/6974687.stm]http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/6974687.stm[/URL]

Thanks. I'll keep looking for the doc, too. It was actually very interesting. The cat thing was just a small part in a segment.

    • From all I have read, any known long term effects of an mRNA vaccine manifests within the first two months. It does NOT affect genetic makeup since it never enters the nucleus.  Conditions/effects that manifest over longer periods of time are caused by repeat use at some frequency that builds up incrementally...like.. tobacco or your garden variety narcotics, lead, arsenic, etc. 
    • I read the whole thing. I am thinking a "whole enchilada" badge should be awarded!   Seriously, the experience is playing in a national NCAA championship. While D3 is not as competitive as D1 streaming live on the Golf Channel, it is still the national championship. While no one wants to see their kid card a double or triple to start their round, it is still the national championship.  Oh, and it is competition golf. Everyone knows what they signed up for. The player seemed to accept his fate, and the coach should know better. Sorry but even if you don't have a shot of advancing or winning, you still follow the rules and protect the field.     
    • I said in my post, let’s start simple with 2-years.         You call it stubbornness, I call it prudence. Others disagree with “pretty damn effective” against current variants, let alone those to come.   It’s also worth noting that different vaccines have different levels of effectiveness.   Where Do COVID Vaccines Stand Against the Variants? Drug makers scramble to adapt vaccines to coronavirus variants before they outwit our immune systems.     Again, your personal opinion. And yes, I read and understand the science as well.   Not necessarily. Oftentimes it was my duty to actually put people in harms way…    
    • Of course.  Almost all of us strive, through research and training and other methods, to stay alive.   Military or not.  But in the military you must be willing to put yourself in harm's way to protect your country.  The result could be your death.  When you go in you know this.
    • Debunking mRNA Vaccine Misconceptions—An Overview for Medical Professionals mRNA vaccines are designed to withstand many variants.  It is literally impossible to say what variants will arise though. To the third, why would that matter on whether you take it or not? If you take more, you take more.  I'd assume the first two questions are the key for you, the third is more curiosity.  Would the third be a make it or break it moment?  If anything, it could be yearly.  But the more people vaccinate, the less likely it is we'd need to take more.
