We all do dumb things. The two individuals I am about to mention, take it to an entirely new level. Arsenio Hall coined the phrase “things that make you go hmmmm”. I actually have that phrase as a category here. Check out these morons in the news.
Gizmodo brought this crazy contraption to my attention. I tend to disagree with the Gizmodo headline stating that it is “probably overkill”. It totally is overkill. Like bringing a shoulder launch missile to an archery tournament. Check out the image below.
While you may think this is some type of joke, it is not. Perhaps the most frightening aspect of this device is that someone was serious enough about it to file a patent on the “animal trap”. (That is where I got the picture from.)
Personally, I have a hard enough time baiting a regular mouse trap. I end up tripping the things when I go to place them. I would be afraid of a fatal “oops” in this case.
