If you're not endeavouring to win, then why do you keep trying???
I don't.

Actually, you don't need to answer that if you don't want to
I am well aware of that.

and if you do - I won't read it anyway.
Your choice. Not my problem.

Plus, quotes don't prove a damn thing. For example:

Quote from: pitched_prefect
I've always wondered if my dear friend Alistair and, yes, I do wish him all the very best would consider carving a pedestrian wooden tool, such as an axe handle, and sand it finely enough they I might sit on it every morning and thank my secular provider for this marvelous excitement.

You said a wonderful thing.

No offence, but the words 'Dear Friend' and 'Alistair' have never been uttered out of my mouth in the same sentence, nor entered into a thread.

Meh - the faking a quote thing has already gotten old.

Bob... you can't just get rid of your tainted cat milk like that - have some pride in yourself; whoring yourself out on the internet through a cheap internet advert.

You need to be out there - get a little table and yell as a vendor on the side streets, like they do in the old Italian towns.

I was not at all surprised by the results of your examination.

Dispatching rodents and other species by hand is an advanced lesson. 

One which I hope you never have to encounter.

It is something that I have encountered many times, but always tried to do it with as little distress and pain as possible...and I do not find any special pleasure in it.

I wonder where you find yourself on that scale...

I've had to. I had a couple in the roof, and unfortunately the mouse trap didn't fully kill him, so I had to introduce him to doctor foot.

I don't feel bad about it though, the little f@#$ers were keeping me up at night.

I hope they stuffed it with peeled mice before serving.  Much like an egg-laying hen, the cat should be used for mousing before it is finished being plumped up.

The rosemary sprigs and studded garlic about the body are indeed one of the signs of the traditional preparation, so I assume the cavity was stuffed with a few peeled mice.

I try to appreciate different cultures:  the classic preparation of cat includes serving it with the head on.  For some uncultivated Westerners, it may be unfamiliar, but I respect tradition.

But, yes, I have killed two mice with snap traps in the past few months.  I didn't take any especial pleasure in the act, but it's good practice.

Okay - serious question J_Tour... every single time I've set up the old traditional mouse traps:



The mice have managed to pick the damn thing clean pretty much EVERY TIME, without setting it off. Have mice gotten to the point where they're too smart to fall for this type of trap?

Yeah, I always thought mice were pretty dumb, compared to rats, but they seem to have their moments of insight.

My recipe is a bit of animal fat (bacon grease, chicken fat, things like that), studded with a few morsels of a crumbled sweet pastry, like bits of a cookie/biscuit.

But then, I've only caught/killed two, so I'm not an expert.

I am disappointed in you however...spend less time polluting your head with trash and THINK. Don't want mice around? Just get a cat or two! And no, cat videos won't do the trick...

Cats easily learn how to get their own way.

 I MISS MY CAT!

By the way, peanut butter works a treat on mice, but if you have them in some dark nook (I recall one swift one behind a big closet), putting down a plastic bag with the opening in front of the route of the mouse (mice scent and then keep to their tracks) might help too; the mentioned one sat in one such bag within minutes of placing it, with the cat, put there in an earlier attempt to get the mouse, sound asleep next to it.

Yes, there are hairless cats. I'm sure they are nice, but sad too; they need to be kept warm and bathed to get the skinfat, that would normally go into their fur, of them.

In the long run, any words about music are less important than the music. Anyone who thinks otherwise is not worth talking to (Shostakovich)

They might be, but that does not mean they cannot be trained. Stupid owners will let them have the upper hand like in the video. If I tell my cats no they will abide because they know I am the boss cat.

It's not that bad. Plus, when I fly to Scotland to visit family at Christmas, it's always icy cold and a great way to escape the summer heat.
