Redneck Mouse TrapJune 30, 2013 at 1:35 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment
This is the best mousetrap I have ever used, 5 gal bucket with a gal of RV antifreeze dumped in the bottom, plastic bottle with a coat hanger thru it and some peanut butter on the middle of the bottle.
Lean a board up against the side and it works all year without checking it and no smell. I love rednecks, they are the most ingenious group of people I have ever seen.
Odd news from around the world
Japanese man, 71, sues TV station ‘for using too many English words’: “A pensioner is suing a Japanese broadcaster for emotional distress as the channel uses to many foreign words. Hoji Takahashi, 71, wants 1.41million Yen from broadcaster NHK because of their reliance on English. He says that it makes programming unintelligible and that they should use the traditional Japanese counterparts, reported Japan Today. His lawyer, Mutsuo Miyata told AFP: ‘The basis of his concern is that Japan is being too Americanized. Many Japanese speakers use English words such as ‘trouble’, ‘risk’ or ‘drive’. But in Japanese, these words are often pronounced differently, and have new meanings. They also use words from other languages such as the German ‘arbeit’ and the Spanish ‘pan’. Takahashi is a member of the ‘Treat Japanese as Important Association’.”

Dutch woman experiences up to six orgasms a day that start in her FOOT and travel up her leg: “A woman in the Netherlands has developed a never-before-seen condition which meant she experienced unsolicited foot orgasms. The 55-year-old experienced the orgasms, which occurred five or six times a day, without any sexual arousal or thoughts. The orgasmic sensation travelled up her left leg to her genital area and were just like the orgasms experienced during sex. She is thought to be the only person in the world with the condition. The researchers, who published their findings in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, believe that the foot orgasms came about as a result of a signalling mix-up in the woman’s brain. Dr Waldinger explained that about 18 months before the problem started, the patient developed a sepsis infection and spent three weeks in intensive care. For some of this time she was in a coma and when she woke from it, she noticed a tingling sensation in her left foot. The researchers believe this was caused by damage to the foot’s nerve fibres.”
‘Poor English saved Japan’s bankers during global financial crisis’: “JAPAN’S banks escaped the 2008 global credit crisis largely unscathed because senior employees did not speak English well enough to get into trouble. That’s the view of the country’s finance minister, Taro Aso, who also serves as deputy prime minister. He said bankers in Japan had not been able to understand the complex financial instruments that were the undoing of major global players, so had not bought them. “Many people fell prey to the dubious products, or so-called subprime loans. Japanese banks were not so much attracted to these products, compared with European banks,” Mr Aso told a seminar in Tokyo. “There was an American who said Japanese banks are healthy, but that’s not true at all. “Managers of Japanese banks hardly understood English, that’s why they didn’t buy,” he said.”
