I love mice! What a great way to get my attention! When I was younger, I used to sabotage any poison or traps that my mom left out for the mice. Then they made a mouse-hole in the corner of my bedroom, so I began feeding them candy, and they eventually let me pet them without biting me. I think country mice are probably happier than city mice, since there are less humans trying to poison and trap them.
We really have a lot in common with mice. Aside from the other primates, lagomorphs and rodents are our next closest cousins. Our climbing ability, grasping hands, maternal bonding, omnivore diet, scavenger habits, and strategic intelligence are some of the more obvious similarities. Reproductive rate and life expectancy are major differences. However, we still share many social behaviors and psychological processes, and both rodents and primates react to overpopulation in similar ways.
A prison run by the inmates…My boyfriend/husband plays a lot of video games when we have electricity, and he recently bought the Batman: Arkham series for PlayStation 3. As you may or may not know, Arkham City is the same map as Arkham Origins, but has been walled in as a massive prison run by the inmates. Is Gotham City not inspired by New York?
I don’t have a Facebook. Not ONLY because everyone else does, but that may be the main reason. Advertisers on Facebook also have access to a lot of personal information, which is certainly no secret, but the way Facebook neatly organizes that information is more than a little creepy. You get lumped in categories with cute little names like “Outward Bound” (country mouse) or “Career Building” (city mouse) based on keywords in posts.
On big crowded social networking sites, the conversation is more fast-paced. Less time to plan what you say, more senseless abbreviations and small talk, everyone just blurting out the first incoherent threads of malformed thoughts. “Hey were goin to florida! 4got to lock the door lol, can sum1 watch the house so it dont get robbed?” While slow-paced forums like this allow time to think before you speak.
