I then brought those linked to in Toolstation and they do work very well but as has been said the mouse gets soaked in pis and sh1t and all of that then gets stuck in the mechanism which is then a disgusting mess to clean before you can re use it. 


 I just used a bucket of warm soapy water and a toothbrush.  Pish and shit cleaned up nae bother, but the peanut butter took a bit of scrubbing.
 
Just make sure you clean your toothbrush thoroughly afterwards before brushing yer teeth.

 Simpler version of Tommy’s trap. 



! No longer available


 
A beer can would be ideal.  If you don’t want to drown em you still need a little water to reduce their ability to jump, they are really good jumpers when they need to be.
As for traditional mouse traps, these are good as the bait pot is recessed, https://www.toolstation.com/shop/Cleaning+%26+Pest+Control/d260/Pest+Control/sd3217/Sure-Set+Mouse+Trap/p26996 so they gotta stick their nose in, and the trap gets em on the heid or neck every time (so I’m told!).
Be careful with your traps, they break yer fingers.

You could use a 'humane' trap.

 Having said that I caught mine during a cold snap.   They seemed a little slow in the morning, looked to be soaking in their own sweat and piss - must be distressing to be stuck in a trap for hours.  Then got dumped in a field in the middle of nowhere.  Lots of folks said, they’ll be fine, but I dunno.


 Traditional trap is cheap, quick and effective.


 
For real sadists there are the various versions of the DIY water trap.  Though you can make a ‘humane’ version with just enough water to stop em jumping out of the bucket but not enough to drown em.

 They came into my house under the floor boards during the cold weather this winter.  Heard them one night.  Got some traps and peanut butter the next day.  Caught two in humane traps and released some distance away, one other got snared in a conventional trap.  All sorted in under 48hrs.

So come on then -everything is all our fault for voting for our government. So please can you tell me who I should vote for next time. What is your answer to the worlds problems the WE have created by constantly voting for the wrong government. And if you say "we get the government we deserve" I swear I am going to throw my focing computer out the window.
 
Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, our support of Israel.  Our allies, the IS supporting and funding Saudi’s.   Our arms trade – we’ll sell to pretty much anybody. 



The UK in so many ways is a pretty shitty country.  Our government rightly condemns terrorism, but fails to acknowledge it’s own export of terrorism. 



And don’t start me on Brexit.  I know why people voted to leave the EU, it’s because they feel cheated, and they have been cheated, cheated by the last 30 years neo-liberal politics.  But that’s not the fault of the EU – it’s our collective fault.  (BREXIT - did I just say BREXIT  :rolleyes )


Taxation and austerity.  Our failure, or our governments failure, to collect corporation taxes, and now talk of further rising personal taxation to save our NHS.  This is a rich country, but the devide between rich and poor continues to grow and grow and grow.


How to change things?  Well don’t wait for the next vote.

I think you will find there are far more recent refugees in Germany than the UK

And Europes refugee issue is nothing compared some middle eastern countries refugee issues.

Lebannon;

population - 6 million.

No. of Syrian refugees in Lebannon - 1.1 million
No. of Palestian refugees in Lebannon - 350,000


Of course we, along with the US and others, back the Islamic fundamentalist groups trying to overthrow Assad. 
Putin's Russia backs Assad.  Anybody in the way gets killed.


Total deaths in Syrian war estimated at over 500,000
6 million internally displaced.
5 million externally displaced.

How many reverse gears do you have? You shoot your mouth off and then back away saying you were only having a bit of fun, mild sarcasm.


No Tommy.  Not me, the cab driver.  The fucking cab driver, he ripped the pish out of you, pulled your leg.   You still don't get it.  Foc me.

he laughed and said that not all Muslims are extremist and fundamentalists and that a lot of second generation Muslims were very moderate.


Or maybe you did make that up.  I know I don't meet people and say, hey you look asian, are you a muslim?  When I ask a person for help in the street, or jump in a cab, I don't give a shit what colour people's skin is, whether they are religious or not, what religion if any they follow etc etc.

Anyway, the cab driver was probably worried about driving you to the Bullring, because last time it was blown up by white terrorists.....

Talking of white, I'll bet if he was white Tommy would have insisted on paying his fare  :lol :lol

First you say it was all a lie,then you say he was 'Ripping the shit out of me' how was he ripping the shit out of me? The guy went out of his way to help me with no cost to me at all, but it had a cost to him. I don't understand your thinking.



You are over thinking it Tommy.  Ripping the shit out of you, pulling your leg, as in humour, maybe a wee bit of mild scarcasm.  Suttle humour mocking your
prejudice, but it sailed right over the top of your heid.


Talking of marijuana, have a smoke man, chill out.

My hair is now short, but when I was in early 20s, it was long - and it grew like Bob Marley's - literally, all curves and upwards. On a Montenegrin seaside resort, I was stopped two nights in a row and searched for drugs by the police - along with an also long haired (male) friend.


 In 2006 I was in Albania for a week.  I had long blonde hair, hadn’t had a haircut in ten years, tied back in a pony tail.  The first morning there I got up early.  Nobody else I was with was up, so I headed out for a walk, carrying my SLR camera.  The hotel was pretty nice, but the busy street outside had no tarmac.  But what I found was everybody stared at me, I mean really fucking stared.  It was pretty unnerving and I stuffed my camera under my jacket fearing the worst.  After just over half an hour I headed back to the hotel.  One of the folks I was with explained, that well obviously I looked different (very white – long blonde hair) and that in the Balkans it’s generally not considered rude to stare.  He told me just to smile and say hello.  Then the scary menacing starring people started smiling and saying hello back.

VNA go fuck yourself.


What the fuck do you know about conversation that I have had with people during my life.
You seem to think you are all knowing about everything, I would appreciate it in future if you just shut the fuck up and not comment on anything that I put into post in here.
You think that the guy was either taking the piss or that I an lying, what the fuck do you know you twat. 

Charming! :lol :lol :lol   Before I read your latest post, I did check the date, and thought, shit, it's April the 1st.  Fucking tommyyardin's just ripped me big time.  But nope, it looks like your friendly cab driver was ripping the shit out of you after all.

 Interesting observations Slaninar.


Quote
Same goes for gypsies - at least in my city. You don't want to leave things not very well locked in their neighbourhood. However racist it may sound, in equally poor parts of the city with population of white people, the crime rate is lower.


But then the white people haven’t suffered from the, what is basically state sponsored discrimination, right across eastern Europe, that the Roma have. 



Quote
Another example is the police. They have to guess what can be expected of a person and how to approach them the first time they see them. Good, experienced cops often judge that very quickly. They are among the most prejudiced people you can find, but the prejudice is (at least with the competent ones) based on lots of experience.


But then in Scotland the only MSP’s (members of the Scottish Parliament) to have been stopped and searched by the police just so happen to be Asian.  Something is wrong there, surely?

I recall once being utterly and totally lost in an area of Birmingham called Saltley, it late at night (11-30ish)I was on foot, and have to admit to being more than wary of the area I was in, a very much Muslim area that I had heard stuff about on the TV that reinforced my fears.

I had wandered off the main area of the main busy street and tried to back track only to find myself more and more confused, in the darkness I saw some coloured lights over a back doorway and decided to knock hoping to find a friendly face who could point me back to the busier parts of Saltley.
The door way opened and I was in view of four Asian guys each of them would have made almost two of me (They were big lads) I told one my plight and he came out started his car and switched on his Taxi sign on the roof, told me to sit in the front and he chatted to me as he drove me to 'The Bullring' an area of Birmingham that I was trying to get to, he shook my hand and wished me well, said 'no charge' and drove off.

How can anyone say they hate Muslims, this giant of a man had a kind heart, sure he was different to me but he was a kind human being that took sympathy on my plight and did something about it.



How did you know he was a muslim?

It's like all this anti-Semitism that's around Labour at the moment.

Awful.

 

Labour needs to get smarter on 'anti-Semitism', and it needs to get quicker.  As what we are seeing is the well-funded and organised pro-Israeli Zionist lobbyists tearing Labour to shreds right now.  Also, the UK right wing press are running with this big time, they will jump at any opportunity to smear and discredit Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour left. 



‘Anti-Semitism’ is not a major issue in the Labour party.


What is hugely sinister is the lack of outcry from our government, and indeed certain other Western governments, over the deaths of 16 Palestinians at the Gaza Israel border.  Of course, we are not far from the point that criticism of Israeli soldiers murdering Palestinian protestors will be classed as ‘anti-Semitic’.

1. "Do you hate/dislike Muslims"?
2. "Would you mind your daughter marrying a Muslim?"
And see the number of people answering with no, then yes.  :)



I don’t have a daughter.  But if I did and such a situation occured, well, yes I would be worried about my daughter marrying a practising Muslim.  Of course I would.  Just as I would be worried about my daughter marrying practising Christian.  So I’m not sure what the point of such a question is.  Or is it just a loaded question to try and justify a racist stand point?

In THIS country (UK) I think the biggest issue (threat) are the "ethnic minorities".
They are coming here planting their seed, pushing their (third world) religions, then screaming racist when one of us "white" people criticise.

At this point I really don’t think you need to be from an ethnic minority background to be screaming racist EDL supporting fuck pig! :eek
Quote
It also depends a lot on the number (and percentage) of "incomers", as well as how you integrate them into society.
Slaninar, what chance has any immigrant to England got of ‘integrating’ when extremist views, such as those held by focced off are widely held, and indeed are not immediately questioned. 
Such racist, frankly fascist views surely have no place on this forum.

« on: 20 March 2018, 06:22:00 PM »
Yup you can meaure out, and measure in. 

Or    Most oil tubs have rough markings on the side.

So once I've drained the oil and changed the filter, using a funnel I'll pour in the oil till I've put a good couple litres in, then bit by bit till I cover the bottom marker in the window.  Start bike and run for half a minute to fill the filter.   Quickly top up bit by bit till I've clearly covered that bottom mark again.  The bike now has enougth oil to run safely.

However it's now got cold oil all round the engine, that'll take time to all drain into the sump.  So whether I take it for a run or not straight after the oil change, I'll let it sit overnight on the centre stand, all oil will be in the sump come morning, and then I'll top up to the max mark - particulary so as the gen1 thous like it up to the upper mark.
