Brothers and sisters, let's take all the alcohol, and all the drugs, and all the pornography, and throw them in the river...

Now, let's turn to page 39 in our hymnals, and sing...

"Shall We Gather at the River"

:P

Re: How to motivate a slug

I had a garden with slugs once. I used salt and beer. I had to quit because I was worried about making the soil to salty and I was wasting my beer on slugs. I decided to pull them off with chopsticks and flush them down the toilet. After killing hundreds this way, I was having slug nightmares. Finally, I let them have the garden. I drank my beer which made me forget about my half eaten flowers. And all was well.

1 flush per slug would add up to be a lot of water :P

I would say, "Slugs of the world, unite," but it sounds like too much work.

setab, this set-up from an admitted govt. employee is way too easy. As difficult as it may be, I'm going to pass on this one and let someone with even less self-restraint have at it!

CFB, it's all yours....

I have plenty of self-restraint. I just find it too hard to utilize.

You cannot motivate a slug.

Re: How to motivate a slug

First, you have to find a good manager. How many do you know? I am not sure I qualify, myself.
