Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Monday, January 09, 2021

A fundamental rule for pest removal: Kill first, cremate after. Because the other way around can backfire — emphasis on the “fire”:

Luciano Mares, 81, of Fort Sumner, New Mexico, found the mouse in his home and wanted to get rid of it.

“I had some leaves burning outside, so I threw it in the fire, and the mouse was on fire and ran back at the house,” he was quoted as saying by AP.

Though no-one was injured, the house and everything in it was destroyed.

I used to think that karma was a bitch. Now, more properly, I think it’s a rodent.

  3. A mouse in the hand is worth two in the burning bush? Reminds me of the WWII Kamakaze pilots.
