Raccoons can be very persistent. Once they have taken up residence in your attic, the only way to get rid of them is to have them forcibly removed.

The GPUUG members had better get busy putting heavy duty wire screens over any potential openings in their roof, because a rowdy little team of raccoons is moving in their direction!!!


Before...


After!!!

Now that I've had a taste of being in the Top Ten, I want more, more, more!!!

(Just teasing, of course. I would enjoy being a member of Team Raccoon Lovers no matter where our team ranking fell.)

I really HATE the concept of Ig Nobels!!! Yes, the awards all sound silly on the surface, but there is more than enough science-bashing in our culture already and frankly I am sick of it. Basic research often sounds funny out of context, but basic research can lead to huge advances in a field of study.

Eric and one of his long-term research partners, Dr. Shauna Sallman, recently submitted an article to a reputable journal that, taken out of context, sounds silly and frivolous. I know exactly how silly it sounds because I had the pleasure of proof-reading one of the drafts. The article is currently being peer reviewed and Eric and Shauna are both fairly sure that it will eventually be published.

For nearly a year now, Eric and Shauna have been laughing about being likely candidates for an Ig Nobel Prize next year. Yes, they are teasing, but the potential for ridicule did make both of them think twice about exploring this idea and eventually submitting their article for publication. It would have been a SHAME not to share this good and interesting idea with other astronomers just out of a fear of ridicule. I am proud of Eric and Shauna for being bigger than that!

As for slipping on a banana peel, yes it sounds like measuring friction in this context is a silly idea, but in figuring out how to do so in a valid and reliable manner, perhaps the researchers advanced their field in some way? I am not a physicist, so I can't judge, and I don't think the rest of us unqualified folks should judge either!!!

Weigh to go, Monday!!!

Pudgy Little Raccoon Weigh-In: 168.6 lbs - going nowhere fast, but having a great time getting there. October is a big celebration month for me. We have some sort of party at our house every weekend and we accept lots of invitations to party with friends and family.

OMG!!! Nearly 40 posts discussing Monday's itchy posterior... If that is not a sign of the impending apocalypse I don't know what is.

Leg traps are not uncommon in northern Wisconsin where, sadly, raccoon pelts are collected and sold and seem to have some value. We are an omnivorous species, and since I eat meat and own some shoes made of leather, I do not feel that I can pass judgement on somebody who eats raccoons and squirrels. I would actually be a bit worried about eating raccoons, just from a roundworm perspective. Cooking raccoon meat thoroughly probably kills the worms and their eggs, but I would guess that there is still a chance of contamination in the butchering process. Seems like a bad idea to me. In this country at least, there are easier ways to get protein than trapping and eating squirrels and raccoons.

My father was a dentist and he always thought that Sugar Daddy pops were the worst candies out there in terms of dental hygiene. They last a long time in the mouth and bits and pieces can get stuck in your teeth. In addition, Sugar Daddy pops are both hard and sticky, so they have greater potential to extract loose fillings.
