The sunset in NYC definitely looked smokey today. Also I saw a wasp nest.

@progo The sky was brown in the Philly burbs and the sun was barely visible through the smog from the west coast fires that settled over Valley Forge.

@cgarison my pics are tonight in Lincoln Park in Jersey City, New Jersey.

@progo that looks more like a hornet nest. Either way they're both generally assholes so it's not like it matters much

@SirMorganANSI_C ah but I didn't know specifically and I used the more generic term "wasp" which encompasses hornets. :^b

I didn't hear anyone living in it, btw.

@progo does it? Didn't know that, people around here are usually more specific since we deal with them a lot. 😅 Looks like either bald faced hornets or yellow jackets nest to me, but actually yellow jackets apparently ARE wasps which I don't think most people would have guessed. But I'm not sure what else you may have in your area

@progo I have a nest of some kind of asshole hornets behind the shutters in front of the house, but I don't feel like dealing with it since we move out tomorrow lol. One stung me while I was mowing last week for absolutely no reason

@SirMorganANSI_C a prime example of "somebody else's problem" if I've ever seen one!

@Greycoop @progo thanks man. We've been slowly moving stuff a carload at a time the past 3 days, tomorrow is the final step with some help for the leftover big furniture so it shouldn't be bad. During that time we've seen 4 turkeys, a woodchuck, and a handful of deer (zero wasps) at the new place so it'll be worth it. Just need to get this internet sorted out

@SirMorganANSI_C @progo until recently I wasn't really aware that hornets are just a name for certain species of wasp. Getting stung by a couple of them got me learning a bunch.

@coldacid @progo yeah I had no idea. It seems like we have so many different types of hornets and wasps they each deserve their own species so we can hate them more specifically

@progo
What is this image host with gross skin and dandruff ads? It's not... targeted is it?

@AbleKirby I will host my own when you tell me good simple pastebin software I can use, including support for binary files and not requiring javascript to view pastes.

Or I'll write my own some day.

@AbleKirby I originally pasted on postimg.cc for an sms conversation, then copied the urls here, btw.
