Sunday I woke up and had a dream where I viewed a cartoon with this song as the background music.
Hearing it makes me feel 6 years old again.

I always watched the lion king 1&2, the land before time I, II & III and a movie from the Thunderbirds when I was sick.

I'm getting nostalgic.

There are 13 movies from the land before time!
I've got to have them all!
EDIT: And a TV series

The next time I'm sick, I'm going to watch all these movies again.

Those Disney movies are good eh? I'm glad we grew up with them. I think every vegetarian should watch the Lion King.

haha so they realise that we eat the antelope, but when we die we become the grass, and the antelope eat the grass, so it's cool.

still seems like the antelope get the $h1t end of the stick to me

Sometimes the lion loses. I remember seeing an old nature film where a lioness got kicked in the jaw by a zebra ..... bad way to go.

The Lions lose all the time, thanks Matt Millen, most hated man in Detroit.

I started building my squat box tonight, I need one more piece of lumber and I'll finish it tomorrow.

I'm pretty sick of winter, it's much harder living on the side of a mountain then living in the city.

But it's so much more awe!

Has anyone here ever seen the Milky Way, with no enhancement? I've always wanted to, but it's always cloudy here.

Apparently lions don't do well against giraffes, unless the giraffe is laying down. Then the lion pounces on their head, and the neck is such a long lever-arm that they don't have the strength to stand up. So giraffes have evolved the ability to sleep only an hour or 2 out of 24.

I've seen it plenty of times on a clear night.

One time the night sky was red, an effect of the northern lights, it was pretty cool.

More snow coming, I have a very long, steep driveway, last time I took my tractor out to clear the snow, I slid halfway down, very scary.

Dentist in the morning. Blah. It's totally the opposite direction from work so it'll take me ages to get to work. Which means my morning coffee will get seriously delayed. And when I get to work I have to learn FileMaker. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

"or gets it's ass kicked by wildebeast" - robertscott

Those are Cape Buffalo ... Much bigger and nastier than wildebeest. ... They're one of the most dangerous animals in Africa.

Giraffes are also vulnerable when they drink.
