    They then got startled by a cat, but their buck-dad was right nearby, and didn't seem bothered by neither me nor the cat

    I also watched a big slug *entirely consume* a smaller slug, with a long protruding tube-like mouth

    And a fox running across the lawn with (most likely) someone's pet; looked like a rabbit. We don't have rabbits, we have hares, not nowhere near here.

    And I also saw the badger again. Badger doesn't even notice me half the time.

    Also, something ruined the pigeon-couple's nest in the tree. I had little hope for it, still sad tho.

    I wonder if the moose got back to the woods allright.

    (I hope nobody calls the cops on the baby deers -_- )

    I don't think deer are getting murdered in your neck of the woods like they are ours.

    You'd think so, but they are the rare time anybody *gets* to "officially" shoot guns here. It comes up now and then, newspaper stories of shocked neighbors and crying children :D They will show up and shoot badgers, foxes and yes, baby deers

    The "executioners" are not cops per se, as I understand, but part of the same infrastructure. They show up in green camo fatigues, redneck mustaches, and arguments like "But we *have* to continue chasing the badger into the wild, in order to... restore some balance, or something. Nature!"

    I will concede, that I bet deers *do* get randomly shot more often in the US than here though, I'm not gonna argue with you on the main merit there

    Yeah I just feel like redneck culture permeates a large part of this country while you guys are likely a little more sportsman-like about it.

    American inland is ridiculously huge, you travel any significant distance over here, you just approach some other capital - only really comparable sense of deep inland is when you get to Russia - you get that same sort of detatchment from the bustling world around - same insane redneck shit uploaded to youtube etc

    I have to drive 90 miles/140km to see an actual city. Small towns don't count.

    One weird thing you guys do is, if you got like 20 000 people in a place, you absolutely will put at least one highrise in the town center.
    I genuinely wonder - are those buildings just property speculation? Are they empty? Do these 20 000 people have like 5 000 office jobs among them?

    All I know is, I have to drive an hour and a half to see something like that.

    But, to answer your question, I do think a lot of those buildings are built on speculation. After the Empire State Building was completed, it was frequently called the "Empty State Building." I understand that phenomenon occurs frequently.

    I'm seeing it here with fjord-front "modern" residential apartments, right in the city outskirts - there's lots of unused room for speculators (unused for a reason) - the area is super picturesque, perfect for brochures and visual projections, but the area is windy, salty, freezing - just horrible, which is why nobody ever settled there organically

    That would work out fine, as long as you work from home and never go out in the weather. Of course, the salt is going to cause concrete and metal to deteriorate.

    They're kind of shit, mom fell for it, moved there, moved out - although they market it (obv) for "young couples :D" (because they can certainly go and buy fresh brand new waterfront apartments!)
