OK, this I have never seen before. I was out walking the dog, and came across this on a house down the road. One hawk sitting on an air vent "Surveying his domain". But his sibling was wrapped around the house exhaust, hanging from the side of it. I walked up to them, they just stared back at me, no concern at all. Stayed like that for a couple of hours. I was getting concerned, when she righted herself. Now she's just standing on top of that vent.

All is normal, but I think that bird was enjoying the AC

That just means that PIGS might spray their capsicum spray on you for seasoning while individuals will be upset because you consume all or almost all of their ethanol products.

'Pigs' was the name Italians gave to their manned torpedoes during WWII. They were generally successful, despite the British spraying 'oink oink' on their backs when captured...

Policeman In Government => PIG
Police In Government System => PIGS
Harley's Owner Group => HOG
So if you see a motorcycle cop, that just might be a PIG on a HOG!

But that then begs the question, if a PIG eats pork, is it cannibalism?

If a dinosaur eats a pig, it's Jurassic Pork.

Yes. The first 12 cadre (a hordlette if you will) appear on turn 3 and are then brought up to full strength with the additional 25 appearing between turns 6 and 10. They will appear in downtown Ulan Bator.

Ah the Mongolian prog rock group Gengis and the Hordettes. Not featured in the game sadly - yes I know, a staggeringly poor omission by the codesters of the game but......

They appear alongside the horde. If one appears, then so does the other. Historically, only the horde is counted, and then you know the number of hordettes as well. And the reason for this type of counting is because the horde arrived slightly before the hordettes and made an armed impression.

Why not? The Dutch had Dutchettes, recognizable by their closets full of wooden shoes (klompen).

One would think that. But, no, not really. Because technically the term 'viking' wasn't the people in, or from, Scandinavia. It was for the people going viking. Hence, a vikette would actually be a Viking as well.

The difference between a Viking, and a Norseman, is that the first is what he currently do, and the second is a group of people. For example: A Viking is a Norseman who go in viking (seafaring trade, raiding, or settling foreign land).

Although I should perhaps say that the female Viking might more commonly be referred to as a 'shield-maiden'.
