Even though it's pretty much forced, I don't do G+ either. I just set everything to private and never went back to it.
Me too. As for twitter, I suspect that in 20 years the notion of tweeting will be an object of derision in much the same way as leisure suits are today.

Or a squirrel, on average they can only remember the location of 20% of their food storages, so they usually bury five times the mount of food they need
The jays have a better track record than the squirrels. IIRC, about 50%. Around here the jays go one better by spying on the squirrels and snatching the nut after the squirrel hides it. The nut then goes in the jay's stash. (I have personally witnessed this.)

Around here the squirrels are learning and sometimes, if they think they are being watched, will do dummy hides several times before actually hiding the nut.

Bush meat...In Iowa that would include 'possum and 'coon, I would expect.
I had some indeterminate meat in Cameroon once. It was definitely not chicken... From the tiny ribcage I suspect some kind of rat.

The fox year calculator I found on Google gave me a slightly different number. But yeah, it's in the right region.

That's because it isn't an opossum - it's a possum Common brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula), to be precise. There are tons of them down in Oz.
