Mouse traps only solve part of the problem. A sticky one immobilizes the mouse, leaving the mouse trap operator to kill or free the mouse. A spring one forces the operator to dispose of the intruder. A cat takes care of both parts of the problem.
He's falling asleep in the cutest possible way. At the Golden Gate Kennel Show at the Cow Palace on 29 January 2006. This dog was really tired, and kept dozing off... Watch it on Google Video, also...
Every time you leave a message for a Verizon mobile phone customer, their personal greeting is followed by an audio track letting you know to wait for the beep, but if you want more options, press 0, and to leave an alphanumeric page, press 1. Verizon has about 50mm customers (source: nytimes); assuming half of them get a message a day, with each person leaving a message having to sit through this 10-second recording, we're looking at about 65 thousand wasted hours a day. All this, I'm sure, for two options that get less than .05% acceptance rate. That's a lot of anytime minutes.
Girl gets bird flu after kissing chicken
Sumeyya Mamuk considered the chickens in her backyard to be beloved pets. The 8-year-old girl fed them, petted them and took care of them. When they started to get sick and die, she hugged them and tenderly kissed them goodbye. The next morning, her face and eyes were swollen and she had a high fever. Her father took her to a hospital, and five days later she was confirmed to have the deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu.
