AK-47 raccoon repellent. That should do it alright.

Kitsap Sun

A 22-year-old Suquamish (Washington) man who said he was protecting his pit bull from raccoons was arrested Thursday on suspicion of reckless endangerment. The suspect allegedly shot an AK-47 rifle at the ground off his back porch.

Kitsap County Sheriff’s deputies responded to reports of a male and female screaming at the man’s home on the 6000 block of Fir Street. On arrival at 8:30 a.m., the officers questioned the suspect and a 35-year-old female, who were on the porch of the house.

The female said she had been sleeping and knew nothing of the incident. The suspect said he had heard noises in the backyard. He looked outside to find raccoons attacking his dog. He admitted to shooting the AK-47 but said he only fired four or five shots into the ground to scare them away.


It would scare me away for sure…

Whoa, man! You need a shower!

There’s more at Wired.com

Possibly because of excitement over the Russia-Georgia conflict last month, little attention was given to a new development in chemical warfare – the first use by the Israeli police of a new, smelly weapon to disperse demonstrators:

Israeli police say the new crowd-control method, which they call a “skunk bomb,” was used for the first time Friday in the village of Naalin. Palestinians have been holding almost daily protests against a security barrier that Israel is building in the area.

Israeli police say a water-spraying device showered the liquid on the demonstrators, forcing most to rush off to change their clothes.

The weapons are described as an improvement over the rubber bullets and tear gas used previously, and “medical and legal authorities approved the use of the foul-smelling liquid.”

I didn’t know that mice go to gyms…


Canadian and U.S. researchers say there is a direct correlation between the length of fingers and being motivated to hit the gym.

Researchers at the University of Alberta and University of California-Riverside, who conducted a study using 1,000 white mice, said the findings seem to support a stronger connection between digit length, voluntary exercise and high levels of prenatal stress hormones — indicated by the difference in activity level between the control mice and the selectively bred, active mice.


Please tell me this wasn’t funded with tax money.
