Building A Better Mousetrap
turns out to be less useful than designing a better nail. More details about the HurriQuake nail are available here. Thanks to RBIII for the link.
No doubt some mindless pinko will soon be heard lamenting that the "rich" can easily buy HurriQuake nails while po' folk (who are overwhelmingly non-white!) are left to scrounge up mere common nails. Then some intrepid IRS clod will harass Mr. Sutt for making too much dough and forgetting to cross his "t's" as dictated by Rule 254621, conveniently explained in Publication No. 13524. Finally, some joker who recorded a patent for "process for holding two pieces of wood together" will sue for a billion bucks for patent infringement.

Poor Mr. Sutt.

Don't rule out the need for a better mousetrap just yet.
Hurricanes and earthquakes may or may not be increasing due to factors such as global warming, but the past 5 years have seen major developments in better mice. We have mice that live longer, mice that are stronger, mice with better memories, glow in the dark mice, mouse-human hybrid chimeras, and the rate of artifical mouse evolution is just getting started.
Currently most of these better mice are contained inthe lab, but it's just a matter of time, or ALF, before they go feral, and the demand for better mousetraps will increase. Not knocking the nail, just sayin'
