:lol2: That slinky looks a bit tipsy, sometimes.
It also reminds me of the Monster of the ID in The Forbidden Planet, where you could only see the footprints.

Know the quiet place within your heart and touch the rainbow of possibility; be
alive to the gentle breeze of communication, and please stop being such a jerk.

I dunno. Must be the new year. I don't get-it, or the papal joke. :no:

Conditioning, Beyond, in which a positive reinforcement is used to reward local wildlife for approaching throbbing bass; this should eventually serve as a negative reinforcement for those who use subwoofers in their cars to abuse perfectly innocent people who don't want to listen to the carp the subwoofers are pumping out at all hours of the day and night.

If this worked, this could revolutionize suburban and urban living!! Do I have to build my own, or can I buy this somewhere?

Protip: Moving to a retirement community also works. Strangely enough, little old ladies don't tend to listen to loud music. :D
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

Crying Subwoofer

Humane Eviction Pages:
  • FOXES IN A DEN: Place a radio, tuned to an all talk station, at the entrance hole.

    SQUIRRELS WITH BABIES IN THE ATTIC: Place a radio, tuned to an all talk station, about 6' from the nest. Check the nest the following morning. If the babies are gone, you can usually block the entries. First, make sure the mother didn't move the babies to another part of the attic. The radio usually prevents this.

    SKUNKS UNDER SHEDS OR BARNS: Place a radio tuned to a talk station in the shed or barn. If you know where the skunk is located under the barn or shed, place the radio as close to it as possible.

    RACCOONS IN CHIMNEYS (FIRE BRICK): Place a radio in the fireplace. Tune it to a talk program. Do this during the day, and use it in combination with the ammonia; or, you might want to use an ultra sonic device.

This may not be true much longer. The generation that grew up to the Stones, Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin, et al, are rapidly approaching the retirement village age, and our hearing isn't what it used to be. We may need to turn it up some more. :mrgreen:

The papal joke was the alt-text to the image on the xkcd page.

I don't know if this is cute or funny, but my nephew showed it to me, and I've got to share!
