    I knew it!

    I've learned a long time ago that battling squirrels is a lost cause. They are just too resilient as a species.

      " you never think about it, but squirrels can really cause quite a pickle."

        Ok... Listen

        "Five farm workers were charred to death when a high-tension power supply cable snapped on being disturbed by a squirrel"

        If a squirrel can take down your power line, can you really blame the animal? Come on now... What do they weigh, a pound?
        Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

          ^^ yeah, i suspect power companies' regular go-to to explain power outages is the squirrel excuse, hiding issues of poor maintenance or human error.

                Regarding the crash in Manchester. I tell my wife, Don't brake, or try to avoid hitting a squirrel darting across the road. I fear her getting in an accident like in the article.

                  I ALWAYS try and get out of the way of them.

                  Too cute to squish.

                    well, the thing is since they're unpredictable (squirrely) that's not totally possible always.

                        I've been onto them for a good long time, at least since they proposed underwriting my addiction awhile back

                          Cute from a distance, but can be a pain in the butt. I once had to extricate one from my attic.

                          I've spent most of my money on women, beer, cars and motorcycles. The rest of it I just wasted.
