shudder.

That's why I leave them outside - where I don't have to see or have contact with them.

This, from an Australian forum I lurk on:

(Warning - snort® factor: High)

I wonder if the people, (mainly women) who enlarge the size of their eyes whilst talking to you, realise that it looks to the observer, that someone has snuck up behind them and given them a digital rectal examination they weren’t expecting?

I wonder if that writer reaslises that many times people have no control over such facial expressions??

Hey marksierra - didja see this gem??

I used to live downwind from there...! grin)

The trains that I took to school (RMIT) passed a baked bean factory on their route into the city.

The smell was not appetising at 8 in the morning.

If you're going to commit a crime, make sure there are no witnesses - human or animal.

A pet parrot in India has been credited with helping catch the man who allegedly murdered its owner, a relative said.

The owner, a 55-year-old woman, was stabbed to death and her jewellery stolen at her home in the northern city of Agra on February 20.

The woman's relatives grew suspicious when her caged bird became agitated whenever her nephew was in the home or his name was mentioned.

Inadvisable and unnecessary but certainly gains points for trying...If he'd done his research he'd have found much more that was edible.

Acoustic Kitty was a CIA project launched by the Directorate of Science & Technology in the 1960s attempting to use cats in spy missions, intended to spy on the Kremlin and Soviet embassies, recording the links between the buildings in the area. A battery and a microphone were implanted into a cat and an antenna into its tail. This would allow the cats to innocuously record and transmit sound from their surroundings. Due to problems with distraction, the cat’s sense of hunger had to be addressed in another operation. Surgical and training expenses are thought to have amounted to over $25 million.

The first Acoustic Kitty mission was to eavesdrop on two men in a park outside the Soviet compound on Wisconsin Avenue in Washington, D.C. The cat was released nearby, but was hit and killed by a taxi almost immediately. However, this is disputed by former Director of the CIA’s Office of Technical Service, Robert Wallace, in the Weapons Of The Superspies episode of the TV series The World’s Weirdest Weapons: Wallace states that the project was abandoned due to the difficulty of training the cat to behave as required, and “the equipment was taken out of the cat; the cat was re-sewn for a second time, and lived a long and happy life afterwards”. Subsequent tests also failed. Shortly thereafter the project was considered a failure and declared to be a total loss. The project was cancelled in 1967.

I can't remember where I saw it, but someone had fitted a camera to their cat's collar and recorded the animal's meandering over the course of a few hours.

I know that we all make mistakes from time to time .. and maybe we Aussies are a bit touchy .. but ... guys, we all have access to a thing called 'the internet' these days. Surely fact-checking can't be all that difficult ...

Yes, and it's going to take me a week to adjust LOL

I had a brief chat to Sam D this afternoon. A lovely bloke. He works in an office around the corner from me.

I'm proud to have had an article written by him. What's more, he helped me get it resolved!! I get to test the matter fully tomorrow, when the migraines, supposedly, are investigated.

Didja catch Clarke and Dawe last week??? Just classic!
