Poor little mousie. Wanting so bad to take on a hamster wheel, he is failing ever so miserably.
Hamster wheels are for an elite group. Stick to rolling around in a plastic ball.
(To be fair, this little creature looks like he belongs in a spy movie. Perhaps Tom Cruise should eat his heart out!)
Who knew mice ate anything other than cheese? Well, this little guy had the courage to try something new: A pretzel stick. Don’t be fooled. It may seem like a simple task to us of the so-called evolved “human race.” But for such a small creature, eating a pretzel is a big job. He manages to finish the whole thing and still looks adorable in the process (something that can’t be said about me when I’m downing mass amounts of the salty snack).
We may just have found a real life superhero in… a mouse! This little furry creature displays impressive agility that has me thinking that Mighty Mouse may actually be real. Just take a look:
He knows when to walk through fingers…
He could probably lead any mouse Olympic team to gold in the 1 meter hurdles…
Like man’s best friend, he enjoys a good game of fetch…
But unlike Air Bud, he can dunk just like Mike…
And unlike your boyfriend, he can even put a ring on it!
With the evidence above, this is one mighty mouse I wouldn’t mind saving from the clutches of a cat.
This guy was attempting to be a kindhearted samaritan by releasing a mouse, trapped in the garbage can, back into the wild. Dressed in full army gear, he decided to record his humanitarian efforts. Although releasing the so-called “Whiskers” was a relief, he also described it as sad.
But the real sad part was to come… Whiskers didn’t stand five minutes in the big bad park where predators roam.
Deadmau5 is asking his fans to design him a new head, reports CTV.
The Canadian electronic producer, who has a major underground following, has started a contest online to see who can design the best mouse head, which he so famously trademarked.
The contest, which can be viewed here, has some guidelines though. The designs must be original, may be created physically or by using Photoshop, and be 100 per cent creatively controlled by the designer.
The winner and a guest will win 2 VIP passes to a Deadmau5 concert in Los Angeles, with travel and two nights’ accommodation included. The next 10 top submissions will either receive VIP passes as well or official signed merchandise. Either way, pretty sweet deal.
Submissions are accepted until July 12, and fans will be able to vote online to pick a winner, who will be announced August 3.
If you’re creative, love Deadmau5, and love free things, I strongly recommend that you do this. If I could draw or build things, I would totally do it, but I’m limited to stickmen drawings. Good luck to all those who enter.
Mouse technology is an ongoing game of leap frog. Every so often a new mouse product arrives which introduces some kind of new technology – how much better can the ‘mouse’ be improved? Apple’s ‘Mighty Mouse‘ for the Macintosh, was oddly innovative by re-positioning the old ‘mouse ball’ on the TOP of the mouse to allow for additional navigation options. However, after a couple of months of use, the good old little mouse ball on the TOP will stop functioning in the UPward direction and it is next to impossible to clean it to get it working properly again. Until Apple figures out a way to resolve this sticky ball problem with the Mighty Mouse, I am trapped into hunting for a better mouse.
Microsoft markets no less than 30 mouse products (meese? mices?), only several of which are labeled as compatible with Macintosh. The new Microsoft Wireless Explorer Mouse with BlueTrack Technology* is available in two sizes – a big one just called the Microsoft Wireless Explorer Mouse (to which I may refer to in this review as the ‘desktop’ model) and a smaller lighter ‘cousin’ for traveling laptop users labelled as the Microsoft Wireless Explorer MINI Mouse. With its virtual tours, photos and specs, the Microsoft Mouse webpage provides a thorough description of all products, but nothing replaces a ‘hands on’test drive. Read more…
