Bill Valentine suggested that I use DCONN on my mice. I leave it around the mouse trails, let them eat it, and it slowly absorbs all of the moisture in their body, killing them and drying up their bodies so that there's no stench. It's gruesome, but I'm willing to try it if it works. The mice are completely avoiding my humane traps. I've actually tried to catch them by hand (well, cup in hand), and that has certainly failed. I'm running out of options. I'll consider DCONN over the next three weeks and use it if there's a positive karma vote on this entry when I get back.

Kelly reported that the day after I left, a mouse was sitting in the last humane trap that I had left sitting out. I presume that she let it go this morning (better late than never). There may be hope left.

Damnit, I gave it a plus once before. You should kill all the vermin! I am always in favor of torturing rodents.

I saw this Discovery channel thing today about how scientists have created a breathable liquid that can be ingested into the lungs. It is highly oxengenated and gives that oxygen to your body just like breathing air. (Watch "The Abyss" again for an example).

Well, they showed the testing of it done on a lab rat. They held it down by it's tail submerged in the stuff until its lungs filled. Man, I was near tears of laughter watching that thing struggle for dear life. It made me think of all the good times spent destroying my pet hamster Lando. Needless to say, it worked fine and the rat calmed down and kind of looked peacfull breathing from water.

When I first saw the poster for The Change-Up, it sounded like a reasonable idea for a movie: Bachelor and new daddy discuss each others' lives and think the grass is greener on the other side, then agree to trade places for a while, then learn something Go »

Jonesing for Norah

I hope Norah Jones enjoys all those Grammys she just won, because I don't think she'll be getting any others. It seems like every year, some new artist comes along with a single great song, wins a ton of Grammys because everyone thinks the person is launc Go »
