    I really like pet rats. They're lovely, intelligent, sweet creatures. You get a much better pet in a rat than in any other kind of rodent, I reckon. Rabbits? Stupid, unresponsive baby-eaters.

    Funny thing is, I really hate wild rats. Destructive, dirty and defiant. Go figure!

    Re: Your Greatest Fear

    Jobs exported outside USA is such a big fear that it deserves its place along with the others there huh?

    I clicked corporate capitalism exploitation. Each day of every month they constantly think how will they be richer in the shady areas of law that the consumer is not aware about.

    That of course is third in rank after: a) painful death, and b) death.

    Enjoy America. America rocks. Don't let life pass you by waiting for the sky to fall.

    LOL!
    Yes, I noticed that. I also noticed that every person who voted for Government Regulation was American. The non-American voters went for drugs, guns and capitalists. Interesting.

    I know, I know. I don't understand the contradiction either. Mind you, my little Roxy and White Fang might be the same species, but I ain't letting White Fang go to sleep under my jumper, in my armpit.

    I hate rats too. My friend got her daughter one as a pet and tried to get me to touch/pet it. Ewwwwwww no! I think I was psychologically scarred by "Willard" in my youth.

    None of the above, since poisonous arachnids and heights aren't on the list.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
