Title: Mouse
Post by: TimmyHiggy on January 23, 2011, 12:27:17 PM
I have a mouse! Never had one before and not that freaked out so I decided to have some fun and build a trap of my own

(http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/hs051.snc6/168133_501765414591_504229591_6131471_3848745_n.jpg)

Wish me luck!
Anyone built their own to an alternative design? In case my prototype fails...

Mice a notoriously difficult to get rid of. The one in my house has successfully evaded even store-bought traps for the better part of 3 months. Best of luck to you and you trap in you mousing.

Workings of Trap:
Mouse walks up the dark brown broom onto the side of the bin eating the small bits of stilton
Mouse then notices large piece of stilton on pivoting broom
mouse walks onto pivoting broom. overbalancing it
it all falls down, the broom falls over the end of the box (or at least, it did when I tested it) and the mouse falls down into the red plastic box

Ah.  My best guess was..



The mouse is trapped behind the backpacks.  Once they are moved, it will cause the broom to loose it's grip and the giant cylinder will roll down the chair legs, crushing the mouse like a steamroller.

I have a design proposal, just made this.

(http://i.imgur.com/co8y1.jpg)



The mouse notices the shoe and slips on the carboard tube bit, then continues to run backwards on the tube on its hind legs all the way up the boxes before it gets its neck caught in the belt loop and hangs itself. The bin serves as a sort of Plan B.

I've been sitting on a design for a while. Still waiting for a follow-up from the patent office.

(http://i621.photobucket.com/albums/tt294/Ultimetalhead/DSC00872.jpg)

Basically, the mouse will come out of my room, notice that I've set dinner out for it (I mean, who the fuck doesn't want some damn Hamburger Helper? Not me!). Excited, it runs forth into the empty vitamin water bottle. In its excitement, it turns its head to the left, and sees the frog. Startled, it runs in the opposite direction, tripping over the allen wrench, and falling down the stairs into a conveniently placed ice cream bucket. Should the mouse run around the box, it should hit it enough to knock the battery off of the box, killing it on impact.

Good trap, but have you considered a more aerodynamic water bottle? It may speed the delivery to the bottom of the stairs.

Post by: Ultimetalhead on January 23, 2011, 01:12:25 PM
Likewise, have you considered different types of leather? I'm sure your patent leather would do the job, but I think buckskin leather might make the hanging a bit more smooth. Bonded leather is obviously the best case scenario, but not everybody has access to that.

Ah, quite right. My schematics called for nubuck leather originally, but was scrapped for presentation purposes.

(http://i.imgur.com/drUvf.jpg)
(http://i.imgur.com/faAXT.jpg)
(http://i.imgur.com/hiEcA.jpg)

First, the mouse notices the Ekans card and is scared, so he runs into the vuvuzela. When he comes out the top he jumps down onto the Guitar Hero 2 (NOT Guitar H 3 or Rock Band, this is very important) controller. Because of the drop between the vuvuzela and controller platform there is no where else to go but to make the jump onto the broom handle. Now, the broom handle is supported only by a really big rubber band, so when it tries to grab on he will inevitably slip and fall into the trombone mute... Trapped, forever.

Anyway, glau. Your trap looks like it has potential. The only real suggestion I'd have for that one is maybe consider using a cup mute so that if the mouse happens to miss the entrance it could still impale itself on the ridges. The entry point might be a bit small too. Maybe try out a tuba mute?

I like where you were going with this but there are some serious problems with your plan:

1. Trying to poison a mouse with Red Bull would never work. If anything, pumping him full of caffeine would just make him harder to hit.
2. Mice can see right through your camouflage, they smell and feed on your fear.
3. Good luck hitting a tiny mouse with darts, you just pumped him full of caffeine.

So what we have here, is a high tech piece of machinery. What I have set up is the red carpet (incidentally the color is tan) that leads into this monster of a death trap. The mouse will just be waltzing along, when he sees this pathway I made him. As he walks the path, he'll see the three most irresistible prizes a mouse could want. A bag of change, a model car and I picture of me from my childhood (don't be jealous, he isn't walking away with the picture). As the little fucker walks toward these things, he will get trapped in the breeze of my VORNADO BRAND MOTORIZED FAN. As he is hit by the fan which will be at MAXIMUM POWER, he will get blown directly into my poorly painted box, which will then be lit on fire (lighter not pictured).

Why would I want to kill the mouse? I'd befriend it at the first opportunity; we could drink and surf the internet and listen to music together, it'd be awesome. He'd quickly become my go-to mouse for everything. Girl troubles? Talk to the mouse. Need someone to go to a gig with? That mouse fucking loves to mosh. My friends would love him, because he's an adorable mouse, and who doesn't love those? At clubs he's the perfect wingman, jumping on grenades so I can get with the hottest girl there. He's my best friend in the world, and I'm closer to him than I could ever be to a fellow human.

But then, early one morning I awake and go to the kitchen to make a bagel. I open the cupboard, and there he is, munching away on my bagels. My. Bagels. I blackout, and when I awake I find myself covered in blood, clutching the severed head of a girl I've never seen before and the mouse's skin is stuck to the wall with a thumbtack. I never found his body.

Boasting in an epic bead

Also, I know my grandpa has an awesome way to catch mouses. I think it's something like he puts a piece of meat into a box. The box is exactly on the edge of a full washtub. Once the mouse enters, the door grilles of the box falls down because of the mouse's weight, which also causes the box to fall down into the washtub, drowning the mouse.

I don't have pics because I saw it when I was a child, haven't seen it since.

Alright guys, here it is. The mouse will instantly try to ride the bycicle clock, since my childhood experience has taught me that mice love to ride bycicles for no apparent reason:
(http://www.istockphoto.com/file_thumbview_approve/11863166/2/istockphoto_11863166-fat-white-mouse-walking-bike-begins-bicycle-riding-exercise-program.jpg)
It will go towards the computer mouse, because they're mouses. It will bump the mouse, and with it bumping the CD Drive with Falling into Infinity into it (Remember, FII is very important in this trap. VERY IMPORTANT). The Computer is already set to play track No.2, You Not Me.

The Mouse will be confused by this song, because it's a well-known fact that even mice are confused by how did DT even make this song. It will fall off the desk and fall into this huge book, who will close when he falls, crushing him.

I prefer a more simplistic approach to trapping and killing defenseless animals.  



Simply...


A.  Use a chip as bait and a slipper as a trap.  Mouse goes into slipper and gnaws on chip

(http://i842.photobucket.com/albums/zz346/dtismajesty/IMG_0659.jpg?t=1295840388)






B.  Admire your nice rug one last time

(http://i842.photobucket.com/albums/zz346/dtismajesty/IMG_0660.jpg?t=1295840593)



*click*












*click*    
















C.  Boom.  Motherfucker.

(http://i842.photobucket.com/albums/zz346/dtismajesty/IMG_0660EXPLODE.jpg?t=1295840655)


D.  Call the fire department.



Now that mouse knows who's boss.

Mouse is just chilling, and suddenly he's trapped. It's fool proof, there's keys.

Mouse is lured by keys, doesn't see the one he needs to get out of the room, and kills himself in despair with the knife.

I still have no idea if keys being able to lure mice is an actual thing, or if everyone just saw it in the OP and decided to parody it. If it is an actual thing, this is the first I'm hearing of it, and I can't tell if Glau and UHM were just messing with me or not when I asked about it before.

So how are your devices performing?
I came back from work today to find that, in spite of the highly specialised and thoroughly tested design, no mice have been caught. I did however find it had been triggered...

Raccoons are attracted to shiny things and they're both rodents, so mice are therefore attracted to shiny things.

I really don't know how he did it. He somehow got into the box of Helper without knocking the battery onto himself. As you can see, he left some of the noodles in the bucket. So, here's what I think happened. He took some of the noodles, went into the bottle to eat them, saw the frog, ran away and down the stairs into the bucket. I don't know how in the hell he got out or managed to position the bottle in that way, but one thing's for sure, this means war.

I didn't make this. Don't have any mice in my house. But I can tell it works very well.

Just put some food in there, and set up a makeshift ramp so it's easier for the mouse to climb in.

Today I have made a scientific breakthrough. After much research I discovered that in fact, keys are not the primary piece to the mouse trap. It's the key-chain attached. Upon this discovery, I quickly went to my room and retrieved my old key-chain collection. Upon doing this, I drafted and put together probably my greatest invention to date.


Ladies and gentlemen of the scientific community, I present to you the Key-chain orgy.





This excellent piece of mouse trap technology works on a newly developed pressure plate system. Here is the photo of the entire thing for starters.

(http://i.imgur.com/M3SMQ.jpg) (http://imgur.com/M3SMQ)

How it works, is the mouse is firstly attracted and lured in by the pile of key-chains, as shown below. As you can see, the pressure plate is well hidden underneath the key-chains, with two fuses attached leading to the rest of the trap.

(http://i.imgur.com/CinBG.jpg) (http://imgur.com/CinBG)

Upon stepping on the pressure plate, the trigger sets off in two directions. The first going towards a carefully set up and aimed NERF handgun, pointed directly in the direction of the mouse, and the direction he shall soon be heading. As the trigger sets off, the gun is then fired towards the mouse, sending him flying forward, underneath where he shall meet his final demise.
(http://i.imgur.com/w4tg9.jpg) (http://imgur.com/w4tg9)

Here we have the final part of the trap. As the mouse is sent flying forward, he shall end up landing directly underneath the shown guitar, along with two razor sharp knives held together by some shoelace.

(http://i.imgur.com/KzPZu.jpg) (http://imgur.com/KzPZu)

During this time, I set up the second fuse to the shown lighter, which is in position to burn the shoelaces and drop the knives right down on the location where the mouse should have landed. If all of my calculations and measurements are correct, it should pierce either the mouses neck or go straight through his pelvis, or both if I was 100% correct.

(http://i.imgur.com/GoU3D.jpg) (http://imgur.com/GoU3D)

Here is an additional picture, which is over the pressure plate which ties the entire project together.

So after messing around with several different designs and schematics, I noticed something very strange in the corner of my eye.

(http://i.imgur.com/cDfV6.jpg) (http://imgur.com/cDfV6)

That's right, a mouse hole IN THE MIDDLE OF MY WALL. That's not on the floor people. The fucker dug a hole that leads up onto a table. Upon seeing this, inspiration struck, and I began my final design.

Here is the general idea of my design. What we have, is rather simple. A stack of books, with a rod that is keeping a key-chain suspended in air.
(http://i.imgur.com/UkzyV.jpg) (http://imgur.com/UkzyV)

(http://i.imgur.com/EFUiu.jpg) (http://imgur.com/EFUiu)

But this is not just any key-chain. No, this key-chain is special. It's a BACK TO THE FUCKING FUTURE KEY-CHAIN. There is no self respecting creature I can think of who wouldn't want this key-chain in it's possession.

(http://i.imgur.com/Ks6dm.jpg) (http://imgur.com/Ks6dm)

(http://i.imgur.com/cAsqp.jpg) (http://imgur.com/cAsqp)

So, as you can see, I suspended the key-chain just far enough to where the mouse will have to reach off the edge in order to retrieve it. But little to his surprise, there is no way he is grabbing that key-chain without falling off the table, and into his demise:

(http://i.imgur.com/vtgj7.jpg) (http://imgur.com/vtgj7)

(http://i.imgur.com/ovnaS.jpg) (http://imgur.com/ovnaS)

And now for the worst part. And honestly, I think this might be just a little cruel. I added something to the lid of the box that the mouse will have to bear and look at upon his death, which honestly I don't think anyone should ever be subjected to such torture. But, this fucker has been in my home for far too long. Just be aware, this following picture could be considered to be quite graphic and honestly a little terrifying, but here it is:
