I know two people who had pet squirrels. Yup, they get older and wham, all their cuteness is gone and they wreck havoc. Go rescue a cat or dog, they get better with age and they are the best pets.

One of my favorite random websites.

"All Squirrels Must Die"
"Home of the squirrel defamation league"

... although it is FAR less entertaining since they shut down the squirrel-hater's forum. The avatar pics were priceless.

Life imitates art or something like that ...





I was really looking for a better music for the second one. Maybe a little more like the first...



But seriously, take a look at glide ratios of flying animals, physiology, center of mass, etc.

I imagine Mr. Gill, arms perpendicular to his shoulders (forward attack?), with a bed sheet tied to his hands a feet might have given modern jumpers a run for their money. Finally, I would guess that some women could have done much the same, but rings aren't for girls ... (ummm, yeah! boys).

addendum: wing sweep, drag, angle of attack, golf ball divots on the ventral surface to increase laminar flow, well groomed chest hair?

Contact Richard Gere, I'm sure he had a squirrel or two in addition to his steady repertoire of hamsters, mice and gerbils

When I was a kid in suburbia, me and my next door neighbor shot a squirrel off his fanatic animal lover mom's birdbath with a BB gun. We wanted to eat it, but not immediately, and the skin was difficult to get off so we put it in a bucket of salt water in the basement and left it. We ended up using pliers to pull the skin off, which wasn't easy, we had to pull really hard for a long time. When his parents were at work we cooked the skinned carcass in his livingroom fireplace with barbecue sauce. The meat was stringy and tough. His mom would have killed us if she ever found out.

Toadgas, couldn't ya burn their testicles out with a wood-burning pen when they are young? That may make them calm and people can enjoy them as pets. Or, you could also sell the wood-burning pens to your customers when the squirrels get a little older.

Apple.


When polled, the local osprey population overwhelmingly preferred it as their garnish for squirrel al fresco.

Sound business advice: Come up with an "upsell" item to increase each transaction. Looks like you've got a business partner.

Hey, look what we have here, a stray squirrel managed to escape toadgas' secret underground squirrel breeding/experimentation basement. What the hell was he doing with them? That poor squirrel.

"Now the Purple Squirrel has its own Facebook page with more than 3,800 fans."

Toadgas may be onto something here. LOL

These white ones are the more noble ones... Still... today I'm approaching a bridge across the Ganges and his big white monkey jumps in front of me and pokes me in the chest.

I'm like WTF! But realize I have a carrot in my mind.

Ok Dude, if you insist, here's the carrot

Hate monkey and monkey type things. Got attacked by a foul Macaque years ago. Hate hate hate and it's not too strong a word.
