    Squirrels are interesting. I spent many hours of my youth trying to get my girlfriends to shoot me one.
    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    Got a great photo the other day while mountain biking... Bobcat crossed the trail with half a squirrel in his mouth...basically he had the tail and hind feet swinging from his mouth... good use of squirrels (although I love to watch them steal seed from bird feeders)...

    So you're saying that the squirrel I ran over yesterday, I should have picked up, shoved into a padded pailer, and sent to you for dinner?

    It was him or me. Also, squirrels aren't exactly endangered around here.

    Squirrels are the only other animals besides humans that can be suicidal. I've seen them standing beside the road, waiting for traffic to approach and then when it does, leaping under the wheels of the second car. It must s*ck to be a squirrel if it drives them to such extremes.

    I've learned to tolerate the little buggers, since I have to share my walnuts with them. They are kind of cute. Nicer than the magpies that drop my walnuts on the driveway, so they'll get cracked open so they can eat them.
