Midday Palate Cleanser

“Praise Jeebus!”

“Not today, Satan!”

We’ve maintained that Squirrels pose like heroes from the Marvel Comic Universe, but we may have to rethink that now.

    Squirrels are multitalented. Check out Mark Rober’s squirrel obstacle course for more details. (the whole thing is a long video)

    I like squirrels in the abstract, but I’m not so sure about squirrels in the concrete.

    I enjoy squirrels, but DH grew to despise them while he was a lineman (too many committing suicide near transformers.) He’s been retired a few days over a year, and he now thinks squirrels are little, cute, and fun to watch.

      I used to work in an older building where the occasional power outages were usually due to suicidal rats.
      In my time there, the notable exception was the Nisqually Quake power outage. What a typical PNW event. Richter 7.2 (but that couldn’t be right so it was downgraded to 6.9 – I know, they seem to do that downgrade thing all the time, but still…) and the California news readers were calling it a tremor.
      45 seconds of shaking and when it was over there were – how many fatalities? Guess…
      One guy had a heart attack which the quake got credit for.
      The Seattle Viaduct was closed so that it could be checked out and then was opened back up with little to no retrofitting. And for a few months you could see DOT truck parked on the freeways and overpasses while the engineers were patting the overpasses and bridges.
      Fun times. That PNW place has some really weird mojo sometimes.
      Wait – how did I get from squirrels to the Nisqually Quake? Dang!
