I bought a spider catcher through one of the mailbox catalogues. It wasn't so expensive as the eBay one but has been very useful and I've removed so many spiders I've lost count. However, some of our spiders are so big they don't fit and you have to poke their legs to make them go in. It's all song and dance if it drops out half way through the operation.

I prefer stitchawls model.

As for smaller models...
Show me something being a crossing of a small vacuum cleaner with a lighter-gas torch and I'm willing to call it a spider-catcher.

Not only that, but possibly a miss... Uzi's aren't known for their accuracy, and flame throwers can be cumbersome for smaller people. A steam roller is The Great Equalizer. Or else, call for a Hellfire air strike. Don't take chances where spiders are concerned.

I went to the DMV to renew my drivers license. Get a ticket number, and I ask the lady giving the ticket: "any idea how long of a wait". Her reply: "sir, there are obviously a lot of people here, I have no idea". There were probably ~100 people waiting. I go online, and it says 5 minute wait. I was called in about 10 minutes.

Also, you can go online (used my phone) to check wait times, but nowhere do they have any monitors with expected wait times.

First time I read that I read it as "procrastinators" -- and I was thinking, "Yeah."

If a dumb app can do it, ...

Or she could have been more helpful and said "I don't know". Or she could have been helpful and said "if you have a cell phone available, there is an app for that". Or she could have been more helpful and explain how the process works.

I'm so cheesed off!
The European Patent Office not only gave Monsanto a patent for broccoli seeds but also the "severed broccoli head" and the "plurality of broccoli plants ... grown in a field of broccoli" - in other words, broccoli in all of its natural forms.

Look at the bright side...
This may well be the only product that Monsanto has control over that is actually good for us!

Except the way they intend to sell it.

Over here the Therapeutic Goods Administration is seeking to stop Australian Naturopaths receiving advertising about therapeutic supplements, or potentially, advising about or prescribing the products to their clients. i.e. vitamins and nutrients like Vitamin C, Calcium and broccoli sprouts. You will require a physician's script for vitamins from the pharmacy. No more health food stores or health food isles in the supermarket.

Big Pharma will successfully ban vitamins and minerals by either making them available only by doctor's script or, with the help of Monsanto, by licensing their FOOD patents.

Monsanto want to own the brand FOOD and they are well on their way to succeeding. MacDonalds, KFC and CocaCola eat your heart out. You can trademark your Big Macs but your genetically modified foods, buns and corn dogs will be licensed from Monsanto and now heirloom vegetable like broccoli as well.

You better start collecting seeds for growing your future fruit and veg because no one can strangle the seed market like Monsanto can.
