Oh, rats.

This was just too weird to not post: professional rat killers. I quote:

Armed with a long stick in one hand and a torch in the other, they go out six nights a week to earn 240 rupees ($5.17) per night.
Note that they are using a stick to beat upwards of 30 rats an evening. I've heard rumors of this and porcupines (yet again, I make an inside joke, my aplogies) but never for money.

Big buckets of rats. Crazy.

Julie, this is totally unrelated, but would you mind if I used your "Getting the Most Out of Your Academic Weblog" entry for a speech?

I would like to post a few more links and add some responses of my own, but would you mind if I recycled? Dr. Jerz said it would be okay; I just wanted to get approval or disapproval from you. Thanks :-D

Yeah, go for it. Just beware -- it has the strange ability to rile some people up. ;)
