View Full Version : S! to a fallen warrior

Today marks a sad day for the mighty warrior named scratchy that I have been doing battle with.
Scratchy was a mouse that decided to tempt fate by deciding to enter my temple of doom. Scratchy was indeed the Indiana Jones of mice. He was the I-16 of mice
When I lived in California I worked for a pest control company and was considered one of the best rodent killers in the Central coast/Bay area. I had many supermarkets chains under my belt and did very well at my job.
I always felt bad at the many thousands of rodents I had disposed of in my time so since leaving California I always tried to deal with rodents in a humane way. I would often trap them live and liberate them in the woods near my house. One was so bold that I made a pet out of him and he lived in a box on my dresser for two years.
This scratchy though eluded my humane traps and made a point of being seen during the day and out in the open.
Last night my sound card went kaput and I had the case open pulling it out of the pci slot when I noticed mouse droppings on the bottem of my case. I also noticed that the jerk had chewed thru some wires thus ending my audigy's life. I had left one of the pci slot covers off and he crawled in thui there.
Later that day I saw him jump out of the bird cage and saw he was eating the seeds.
I had had enough, the kid gloves came off and the traps were set. Needless to say scrachty suffered a broken back and was killed instantly, he felt little pain as death was swift.
I will be leaving his skull and hide on a cross near my front door as a warning to other mice that I do indeed mean business.
You fought well and took your chances and your foolish choice to enter my computer has cost you your life.
S!

I've had a couple of rat pets. They're great animals and they're very, very attached to their masters. Great animals.

What about the time I let my Desert King Snake go on a roam and I`d forgotten that I`d left the case off my pc? BOY, was that a nightmare and a half!

She`d just started to wrap herself about the wires of my motherboard and Audigy wires when I grabbed her tail. And we stayed there like that in a desparate tug of war!
I thought "She`ll electrocute herslf or something AND fry my PC! You are not going any further!"

I pulled the plug on the PC (couldn`t turn it off properly),
Thing is I could only stop her going any further- couldn`t pull her out cos she just got more stubborn. And I knew my PC wasn`t gonna take any rough stuff! I was petrified of what components she may have already bent outta shape or busted. We musta stayed like that for about 10 mins. Me trying to work out what to do.

Solution:
Bit by bit I undid the wires she was wrapped about. I unplugged my soundcard, graphics card and TV card.
I was still holding her hard with my right hand so all this I was doing with my left (damn hard using a screwdriver when you`re right-handed!) and these creatures are stronger than they look! Now she was easier to get at!
For some reason she suddely relaxed and let herself be pulled out! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
The comp`s ok and still works! But that was a close one allright!

King snakes are escape artits. I had one missing for 4 months once.

Well, pity about your Audigy. I would NOT have been happy if my PC had been busted. For a fleeting moment I toyed with the fate of my pet vs keeping my PC working, But no, I couldn`t do that to her! S! To scratchy!

That was a cool story. How big was she when this happened? (I don't know much about snakes.)

Her name`s Persephone. She`s six years old and about 4ft long I`d say about an inch thick (body). My mates say she looks massive- but I don`t think so. It happened this June.
Funny thing about that escapade is she went for the open PC as soon as I let her out- made a straight beeline for it! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

this doesn't belong in general discussion on the IL2 Forgotten Battles forum, but instead you should be discussion this to your psyciatrist.

and btw: why do you have the arrogance to say that he was killed instantly. breaking your back doesn't kill you instantly, it paralyzes you instantly, but your brain will be unharmed and will continue to function normally for at least a full minute possibly 5-7 minutes.

killing a creature because it is doing it's instinct and by accident (i am sure he didn't really mean to deprive you from any sound from your computer) 'destroyed' something you left it there for him to destroy seems very childish to me, because of it's shortsightedness or schadenfreude if you will

Must have seen the heat coming out and thought that'd be a nice place to spend the day. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Ok, now this is going into other areas in which I`m not going to indulge except to say I was expecting this kind of judgemental talk. It was an interesting subject for a Sunday morning. You should just say S! and maybe a prayer if you will, for the little mouse and leave it.

Can we have a moderator close this now?

You named him Scratchy - did he itch alot? Or, if he was named "Itchy" could it be because he scratched alot?

That is akin to "What came first, the chicken or the egg?" Did the little guy itch or scratch? One becuase of the other?

Well, I think the itch comes first. Was it not Plato (or Socrates - or some other toga wearing Greek) who said that an egg is a potential chicken - therefore the egg must have come before the chicken. Therefore, itchy would have to be before scratchy because an itch is a potential scratch?

More Cheers . . .
