I have always had this thing that drives me out of my mind. That thing is animals chewing through power cables. I could go on endlessly how the actions of these gnawing bastards have disrupted my happiness and comfort.
Just watching 'Terra Nova' for this week and wouldn't you know it. Two nasty chicken sized lizards chewing on the power cables. They deserve to get a zap each time they do that. Even 85 million years ago, wiring was not to be played with.
It should be made more dangerous, not less. At a certain point that it's being chewed on, it should release sufficient power to stun or kill the creature chewing on it. It's the only way they will ever learn.
I taught a kid once who put a copper wire into a light switch. Both he and his sphincter muscle learned that copper is a superior conductor of electricity.
Even the Mynocks chewing on the power cables of the 'Millennium Falcon' bother me. STOP CHEWING ON OUR SHIT YOUR STUPID RODENTS!
We used to have that problem around here. The Admiral was a great chewer of cords until we switched to all fabric cords. He gave up after about five minutes of that and hasn't gone back to his old destructive habits since.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
