Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

I'm torn between the cuteness of the bunny and my morbid fear of stinging insects.

In response to the question (not the link), it's probably due to scaling. By default, Firefox scales full-sized images to fit in the browser window. To make sure the picture isn't too big, either check the dimensions under "Properties," or run your mouse over the image and see if the cursor turns into a magnifying glass with a plus sign (indicating that it's been scaled).

It's so rare that I actually get to see an opossum alive that I forget just how cute they can be.

And those poor bunnies! Why is it nearly always food items put on their heads? Bunnies are only food if you're lost in the woods and have to eat them to survive, at least IMO.

They run around the plant at night where I work. They mostly leave me alone, and I mostly leave them alone. (And Ais, there's no "O" in 'possum :wink: )

Here are other animals I see at work:

That last one is a link because the pic is huge, but that's the snake I found in the basement one day. He was a little irritated that I carried him back outside, but I'm sure he got over it soon enough

I can't help but think that someone somewhere thought of rabbit stew when they saw this. Cute bunny, though.

"O," but there is. We just never pronounce it.

Quote: dictionary.com

o·pos·sum ( P ) Pronunciation Key (-psm, psm)
n. pl. opossum or o·pos·sums
Any of various nocturnal, usually arboreal marsupials of the family Didelphidae, especially Didelphis marsupialis of the Western Hemisphere, having a thick coat of hair, a long snout, and a long prehensile tail. See Regional Note at possum.
Any of several similar marsupials of Australia belonging to the family Phalangeridae.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Virginia Algonquian.]
Word History: The word opossum takes us back to the earliest days of the American colonies. The settlement of Jamestown, Virginia, was founded in 1607 by the London Company, chartered for the planting of colonies. Even though the first years were difficult, promotional literature was glowing. In one such piece, A True Declaration of the Estate of the Colonie in Virginia, published in 1610, we find this passage: “There are... Apossouns, in shape like to pigges.” This is the first recorded use of opossum, although in a spelling that differs from the one later settled on to reproduce the sound of the Virginia Algonquian word from which our word came. The word opossum and its shortened form possum, first recorded in 1613 in more promotional literature, remind us of a time when the New World was still very new, settlers were few, and the inhabitants for whom the New World was not new were plentiful.

I see them every once in a while. Not for long though, they're unsociable.

Last night, I saw what had to be the hugest bat I've ever seen in my life flying around.
