    I didnít understand the name.
    Wiki says my hunch was right.
    Although I was actually thinking of diogenes laertius



    The name derives from Diogenes of Sinope, an ancient Greek philosopher, a Cynic and an ultimate minimalist, who allegedly lived in a large jar in Athens. Not only did he not hoard, but he actually sought human company by venturing daily to the Agora. Therefore, this eponym is considered to be a misnomer.

    Takes to a vet?? Assuming they first checked on line and with the local Karens with no luck, then it's off to animal control. Let 'em get uppity with the local Sheriff.

    Don't tell my Vet wife I said that.

    Wife and daughter were out of town today so I brought the boys (6 and 8) out to lunch at our local diner spot.

    8 yo orders a choc. chip pancake and then after it arrives asks the waitress for maple syrup.

    She responded by dropping a bottle of Mrs. Butterworth's on the table.

    WTF. He asked for maple syrup, not artificially flavored sugar sauce.

    He was irritated, which I have to admit made me kinda proud.

    A lot of my 70 something friends are becoming safety obsessed. One has sprinklers on their metal roof and is currently obsessed with radon. Another in Mazama who can see flames from his front door needs his own particle sensor to tell him that the air that smells like smoke, leaves ash on his car, keeps him from seeing to the end of his lot, and has an AQI over 200 on NOAA is unhealthy. Nothing wrong with that sort of thing but when people my age decide they're going to get healthy--well, the horse is out of the barn.

    OTOH both my SIL and and my cousin's wife have decided to skip my kids outdoor wedding next Saturday because of the air quality (which is forecast to be better than horrible) so that's a win. As long as my brother and cousin show up. (The SIL has been safety obsessed forever--she had my brother's cholesterol below 90 when he was in his 30's. Poor guy nearly died from liver failure. Apparently your cholesterol can be too low. His liver did get better when his cholesterol went up.)

    If I had a SIL and a cousin's wife, I really don't think I would give 2 fucks about them.

    The combination of smoke and heat annoys me. 85 degrees in the house at midnight, 50s outside but if I crack a window the house fills with smoke. Can't pre-cool in the morning either. Never felt the need for AC before since even on the hottest days it cools off quickly at night but looks like I'm headed there (at least a portable unit in the bedroom).

    Yeah - we have central air but basically don't ever use it, for the exact reasons you outlined.

    However, this summer we've used it much more because of AQI concerns.

    Annoying as shit...

    Thatís exactly why we put central air in over the winter. So glad we did cause itís been so hot in PDX this year that itís not even cooling off enough at night to get your house liveable again.

    As someone who's made his own maple syrup, I am also proud of your son. Unfortunately it could be worse:

    When my youngest was born, I took some time off when my wife went back to work, and spent three months of fire season locked up in the house at 85+ degrees with a baby on my lap. Couldn't blast the fan because she was getting dehydrated, couldn't open the windows because of smoke, so I just sat there and sweated all over my poor kid all summer. Smoke is a fucking bummer.

    How did you kill it in the end? Fire, drowning, multiple cans of spray and fire?

    I managed to pull over into an elementary school driveway and derobed waist up. Probably would have been arrested if school was in session. Little fucker fell on the ground and I stomped him to death.
