I have a problem with squirrels eating my tomatoes.   C-4 would defeat the purpose of saving the tomatoes.  Firing a shotgun in your yard is frowned upon in Abington Township.  So, I bought a blow gun online and a bunch of darts.  My plan is to hang the tails of the squirrels that I get with the first couple of rounds on the stakes that hold up the tomato plants as a warning to their compatriots.  The tails may discourage their allies, the birds, as well.

Now to explain why this is all on topic for this Linus/FOSS list: I have just shared this information freely and openly, and can provide more "source" information on the blow gun to those interested in poking around and offering patches and improvements.  Maybe I can formally license it through Creative Commons?
