PostPosted: Thu 16 Sep 2010, 00:09    Post subject:  Mice Killing for beginners
Subject description: Warning: Contains info on malevolent use of coca cola
 

I just committed pre-meditated murder

As a Buddhist this is not something generally
considered advisable.

The repercussions could last for many lifetimes or
tea time next Tuesday (whichever comes first)

Normally I have qualms about killing computer bugs.

The mouse I murdered was not even connected
to my computer Crying or Very sad
It may have been my imagination but she seemed
to have been only stunned by the new fangled trap . . .

I was advised as a last meal the trap should be
baited with chocolate spread.
I callously set and baited with peanut butter. Crying or Very sad

I have reset the trap
I am a potential serial killer. Shocked

Thanks for listening . . .

Oh no! The real tragedy is "killing" vs. "not killing" Smile Ah, what does a lobster know about that?

I probably know even less than this pair of killers.
One killing gullibility and one killing Nothing
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/asia/article7067989.ece

In Tantric Buddhist Dzogchen doctrine
sentient beings (including mice) are seen as
literally illusionary, which means I am innocent
of all action and inaction
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dzogchen

Holy Buddha, I'm getting away with murder! Rolling Eyes

I consider my living space to be a black hole for non-human forms of life, with the exception of pets and spiders. Not that I have cobwebs all over my place, but I never had a problem with spiders. I once caught a whole family of mice over a weeks time in an apartment I had many years ago. No compunctions whatsoever after I discovered they were getting into my rice, lentils and underwear.

Kinky mice eh?

Well it has now escalated
I caught 3 mice in traps the other night.

We have two electronic re-pellers
(eh not re-pellers as I put before - must have had rodents on the brain)
glue traps did not work

I am thinking of playing random demonic
cat sounds through VLC

neighbors have same problem
also heard that peppermint candy wrapped in
nylons reminds them of cats

I wonder if Bugman will send me a good mouser . . .

actually rather than playing sounds of demonic cats
- I could try cats in heat and employ some of the local toms . . .
. . . a plan is coming together

We do our best to fool ourselves, but at our core, we're all savages. None of us is all that much better than the worst of us.

If an enlightened lobster can't rise above brutality, how can there be any hope for the rest of us?

Kinky mice eh?

I was living in a pretty bad basement apartment in Chicago at the time, just got sober for the first time in '92, living out of boxes. Mice had chewed through the boxes and dined on the underwear therein.

I used peanut butter in the traps, never occurred to me to put underwear in the traps.

Took about a week to get them all.

I didn't mind the holey underwear that much.

"catch and release"
I wonder how much that differs from "escape and return"?

Lobster,

you can try out Amida Buddha or why not Guanyin, she has compassion for every sentient beings and let it come to her even if you kill it I hope.

I am in frugal install of SuperOS on my Acer D250 HDD but it is first time so it has US keyboard just now.

Hahah I love that I managed to boot it in frugal install on same partition I have many Puppy and Windows too. No need to create its own partition for Ubuntu. They will hate me for it.

Nope it is not persistent. I am not that clever.

If you want a mouser, don't bother with a cat, get a rat terrier.

It's not an issue for me because I can't kill anything that's not trying to kill me (or my family) and that's just the way it is. My cat (RIP) however completely actualized her "cat nature" with no ethical compunctions whatsoever. Cat nature is cat nature and that's how that goes. Very Happy

Bruce B suggests the literary tactic
===========
The Good Book says: Kill and eat
Well, did it taste good?
===========

LOL
I have a feeling you did not mean this recipe book
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Walt-Disneys-Mickey-Mouse-Cookbook/dp/0307168123
. . . actually that cookbook is not what I googled for 'Mouse recipe book'


Hillside asserts:
===========
If an enlightened lobster can't rise above brutality, how can there be any hope for the rest of us?
===========

Enlightened? I am a genocidal maniac where mice or tins of fish are concerned
or around about tea time . . .


Bugman (who is responsible for the mice)
===========
lobster, there are live traps available in mouse sizes
catch and release
===========

Bugman, we used one of those
but forgot about the mouse and she starved to death [sob]
Never again . . .

Maybe I will just become a Jain


Flash suggests the Puppy approach:
===========
get a rat terrier.
===========

we are Dorg
you will be assimilated

I like it
- sensible idea, will look into that
I was thinking of a ferret, the tactic used at a Buddhist Monastery I was staying at


Notorik suggests:
===========
It's not an issue for me because I can't kill anything that's not trying to kill me (or my family) and that's just the way it is
===========

They are driving me crazy
. . . well crazier
and you can get ill (and perhaps die)
from mouse carried disease

Just re-peanut buttered the traps
for them to practice their 'mouse ninja' peanut licking skills


Nooby suggests:
===========
you can try out Amida Buddha or why not Guanyin, she has compassion for every sentient beings and let it come to her even if you kill it I hope.
===========

. . .. and then tells me about installing SuperOS (good call) . . .
===========
I think it has better security than Ubuntu
===========

. . . and then . . . ?
===========
They will hate me for it.
===========

The mice are against Linux?
Steve Balmer is a rodent?
Many of us thought he might be part gerbil . . .

. . . m m m . . . yes . . . I am thinking of re-invoking Bast
maybe I can find a suitable Buddhist mantra to chant at the mice . . .


Thanks guys Smile
