      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

PETA's latest idiocy

Recommended Posts

Polar Bear

Here's the latest from tonights evening news:

There is now a movement afoot to allow individual animals to be represented in US courts by attorneys. This means that suit could be brought on behalf of a labratory animal by animal rights activists in the courts of this country. The activist being interviewed on TV said :
(I paraphrase) "Because the chimpanzee has the same cognitve ability as an average 4 year old they should be granted the same rights to legal redress as that 4 year old."

He is not alone in his views. Larry Tribe (Harvard Law) is in agreement. He saw no reason why animals should not be granted legal rights similar to humans, including the ability to sue for monetary damages!

In my opinion, this is the perfect example of why the animal rights movement is so insidious and dangerous. This law, if enacted, would allow animals to bring suit against their owners. Under current law animals are considered property. The jist of the story was how some wackos are trying to make the connection in the mind of the public between the terrible institution of slavery and the practice of using animals in medical testing.

Of course, the vast majority of folks will just laugh this off as the latest screwball idea of the PETA crowd, but it does scare me to think that this story is considered important enough to make the 5:30 evening news. Just imagine a world where your black lab has the same rights in court as you do! Think about being sued by your gold fish!

Worst of all, if a chimp can sue for financial damages, how far behind will the call be for the same rights to be given to farm animals, wild game, and fish?

Sssshhh. If my dog gets wind of this, I'll be serving him T-bones from the grill every night (of course only if the cow doesn't sue me first). I'll have to sell my kid just to feed him. Then my kid will turn around and sue the dog for stealing his bed. And if I know my dog, he'll counter sue in order to cover the court cost. oh man, stop me!

This ought to bung up the court system enough to cost all the tax payers a pretty penny. I'm sure every american would rather have our taxes pay the court appointed lawyers for "Fido" and "Fluffy" than protect the citizens from terrorists.

"Animals as slaves" Lets take a quick poll of all the PETA members that utilze a seeing eye dog, or ever required the assistance of a rescue dog. How many required serum from a snake bite? And then we'll ask how many are from another planet (I bet we get some takers on the last one).

All creatures of the Earth are created to serve man. Man, created in the image of God, has rights over and above all creatures of Earth. Reference the Bible.

ghotierman

so IF the chimp were to prevail in this suit...and there is any $'s left after the lawyer's cut....how and what will he/she spend it on?....Easy to get the chimp a credit card...so then a bank account?...some form of ID...then probably be able to vote, too. There are fundamental differences between humans and animals....reference the biblical quote above. Let's hope this one is thrown out!

      My dad fell thru Camp Lake just north of Shakopee last weekend.  Went from 6" to less then 1.5" in an area that typically never has issues.  Lots of abnormal freezing this year, there were still open pockets Sunday afternoon.   Haven't seen it freeze like this in years (at least on our lake.)  Don't go alone on lakes you're not familiar with.  Bring a spud.

      Any info on Mayhew Lake just NE of St. Cloud? Just moved to the area and was looking to get out a small lake.

      Now is the time to talk to kids about the dangers of thin ice. As temperatures continue to dip below freezing, ice is forming on many lakes, ponds and rivers. But conditions vary across the state.  Minnesota Department of Natural Resources conservation officer Hannah Mishler has already responded to multiple ice rescue calls. “Ice, especially snow covered ice, is extremely deceptive. You can’t see dangerous cracks or the thickness of the ice under the snow,” Mishler said. With many children out of school for holiday breaks, they may look toward the newly formed ice for entertainment. “Teach your children that ice is never 100 percent safe,” cautions Mishler. “If your child is near the ice, you should be near your child.” While adults and children are recreating outdoors, they should always take precautions around any body of water during the cold water season. Lisa Dugan, DNR recreation safety outreach coordinator, advises in addition to checking conditions locally and being prepared with an ice safety kit, anyone recreating on ice should be wearing a life jacket. “A life jacket is the one piece of equipment that increases your odds of not drowning from cold water shock, hypothermia or exhaustion should you fall through the ice.” Ice safety guidelines No ice can ever be considered “safe ice,” but following these guidelines can help minimize the risk: Always wear a life jacket on the ice (except when in a vehicle). When a child is near the ice, an adult should be near the child. Caution children to stay off ponds, streams, and other bodies of water. A thin coating of ice on a pond or lake does not mean it is safe. The minimum ice thickness guidelines for new, clear ice are: 4 inches for ice fishing or other activities on foot. 5-7 inches for a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle. 8-12 inches for a car or small pickup. 12-15 inches for a medium truck. Double these minimums for white or ice covered with heavy snow. For more information, visit mndnr.gov/icesafety and mndnr.gov/boatingsafety. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      It’s been interesting in Central MN so far.  There are plenty of lakes that have very walkable ice and ice that could hold ATV traffic but also several that stayed mostly to partly open for longer than expected.  Several lakes have both rideable ice and open water as of last weekend. There are only a couple lakes that I’ve been tracking that I would commit to an ATV ride on right now, especially with the new snow cover.  We lost the ability to see what “generation” of ice you were on this week.  On the plus side, we’ve had good ice making conditions all week. Short story: There are lakes that are ready to fish but don’t assume they all are.  Phone ahead to a resort or bait shop to find out about particular lakes if you don’t get the info here.  Buy your bait at the shop that gives you your key info. Be extra cautious this weekend until you’ve proven the ice you want to fish.
