Posted:Right, so we all know that beamers are made out of the superdurable ABS plastic right?

quote: Contrary to popular belief, mice are more attracted to the scent of chocolate than the more traditional mouse-bait cheese, or other aromas like vanilla essence, according to Sorex Ltd, a manufacturer of rodent control products based in Cheshire, UK.

So the company enlisted researchers at the University of Warwick to help them produce a chocolate-based trap to capture the rodents. Sorex originally had the idea of putting melted chocolate into a depression within the trap.

...

Singh and colleagues tested different types of plastic with varying concentrations of chocolate essence to discover the most alluring combination. Together with Sorex, they plumped for a plastic known as ABS with a five to 10 per cent concentration by weight of chocolate essence.

Let's turn those old bridges we crossed into ashes.
We'll blaze a new trail,
and torch the rough patches.
