    I once had a rat in my apartment, a long long time ago. I got a steel trap, with teeth, that must have wieghed 500 grams. I woke up in the middle of the night when it snapped, and I was sure I'd find a cut in half rat. what I found was a rat runing around my kitchen wearing a trap around its waist. it was pissed off. so I hit it a half dozen times with a broom, no effect. I picked up the trap and rat (with the broomstick), threw them into a bucket and filled the bucket up with water. the damn rat treaded water with the huge trap attached. I had to push him under water. their is nothing as tough

    I had a mouse infestation in my apartment in college. Landlord wouldn't do shit so I ordered one of those electro-shock traps. Wound up shocking myself, my roomies, and various passerbys more than any mice. It's especially fun after a night of drinking and you play a more adult version of Operation.

    One of my childhood friends lived on a pig farm. The pig sheds were about the size of half a football field and they had a big steel beam running down the centre of the roof about 3 or 4 metres off the ground. My friend would take a long pole with a hook on it, place the hook on the beam and then run. He'd knock down a rat with each stride or two. As the rats fell his dog (fox terrier blue healer cross) would follow along and catch them mid air killing them with one bite. Dog killed maybe 25 or 30 rats in about 10 or 15 seconds.

    I swear, the people who built the parts I'm replacing on my Jeep went into my tool box as they were picking bolts and said, "hmmm...which size wrenches is MrG missing? Let's only send him bolts in THAT size!"

    So, now, I've got suspension parts hanging off my Jeep, and I have to wait until MrsG gets home so I can run out and buy some new tools.

    Okay, so I'm really only pissed about part of this situation, but still...

    X2. What the fuck kind of vehicle uses standard, metric, and torx bolts? Fucking infuriating.

    Why didn't you just report them to the relevant authority? I would have, illegal or not, I don't think that level of cruelty should be tolerated.

    metric is standard, so they use metric and torx?

    Add a few drops of laundry detergent (dish soap would probably work too). It is a surfactant and by lowering the surface tension of the water, you make it so the little devil's cant swim.

    Key to making a successful water trap...Otherwise mice and rats can tread water for what seems like forever.
