Are you using a script blocking add-on?

 

I didn't look at all Robert's posts, but at first, his last one looked blank.

After I told "NoSctipt" to allow youtube, I could watch the video he posted.

Rats as mine detectors

 

 

After observing the negative impact landmines had on farmers in Africa, Bart Weetjens came up with a novel and cost-effective way to address the issue: teaching rats to detect them.

Bart Weetjens always adored pet rats as a teenager. He would breed them and sell them to pet stores. Little did he know that this teenage hobby would go on to inform his entire career.

i understood that, what got me puzzled is that statement has nothing to do with intelligence.

Lions eat 'rhino poachers' on South African game reserve

 

 

 

Sibuya reserve owner Nick Fox said in a statement on the reserve's Facebook page that the suspected poachers entered the reserve late on Sunday night or early on Monday morning.

"They strayed into a pride of lions - it's a big pride so they didn't have too much time," Mr Fox told AFP news agency.

"We're not sure how many there were - there's not much left of them."

 

Now that is a fine example of karma in action. :rolleyes:

You probably have to have a US IP to read it.

I've converted the article to rtf but apparently I can't attach anything here. <sigh>

 

I've uploaded it to google drive.
