An Anti-Explosive Idea

A friend of mine sent this link to me earlier today:


This site is well worth a visit. We all know about the pervasive dangers of forgotten land mines, but few seem to know what to do about it. A brilliant if off-beat person has determined that one of the best ways to defuse land mines is to train rats to sniff them out. The rats have a great sense of smell, and they’re light enough not to set off the explosives.

Also, for you graphic artists out there, the website is itself a little gem of brilliance.

I have to admit that before I clicked on the links within the site, I thought it was taking the mickey, but now that I see it isn't I have to say that the idea is ingenious......thanks for putting that on your blog hun!
ps, the graphics are pretty cool!!!
