Exclamation The one thing to be careful about in Santa Monica...

are the pigeons! I swear, I think they've become drunk or something. They swerve around every which way. Especially in the Promenade! They've become so domesticated, that they are more and more comfortable around humans than ever before! I mean, I'm not sure about places outside of the Santa Monica, or the U.S., but if you come here some day and plan to visit the Promenade...watch out!

I remember one time I was tying my shoes outside of the Borders here, and this pigeon didn't know what he was doing. It kept flying in circles and the last thing I wanted was for it to stab me in the eye. My friends think I overreact...until it happens to them. lol!

I hate pigeons, I always have, These things never die, the vermen of the bird world, live just about anywhere and have mites and other dirty insects. The only animal I can say I don't like, other than the spider ( and even then I respect them)
They poop on everything and they are not even scared of men anymore.

Pigeons are fat and evil, and their are so many of them...

They should gather them, and feed them to the homeless, cooked of course.

Heard about Pale Male? The red tailed hawk living in NY's Central Park? Him and his children pretty much reside there and eat pigeons all day every day... we need more hawks everywhere!!

LOL!!! I remember one time I saw this homeless dude on the Promenade, who put birdseen on his head, arms and hands and these birds just swarmed to him in a matter of seconds! At first I thought how gross that was, but then I realized it was good since they were all in one spot and not around me, lol!
