Oh, that's definitely different :).

Either people looking for votes or not wanting to look like they were copying then, personally I don't care if someone posted before me. Though if they do I try to add an update to my post to an alternate solution or source of information, just to be different.

    This "problem" is even more on Mailing Lists (cause of greylisting), if someone tests some conditions and is not as fast as the other ones it often is that 5 messages with nearly same content arrive at the same time. if I am the last of the "helpers" it perhaps comes to my mind that i might "look silly" solely to the fact that i needed the longest to test and write it down ... People generally dont want to look silly ;-)

      Can't stop that with beady eyes and a pencil nose 8o)

[perldigious]: Hmm, thanks Lotus1... perldigious scribbles note to buy lots of opossums as "pets" in the future to hang around outside his property. :-P
[1nickt]: You must twist and pull! If you burn, use tea tree oil etc, the tick barfs (inside your blood vessel) and you get all the loevely bacteria in his gut transferred to yours.
[1nickt]: tweesers work just fine
[hippo]: Hope everyone else is enjoying their lunch too.
[1nickt]: However, note that it takes between 2 and 4 hours for a tick to be able to start transmitting bacteria. So even if it has burrowed in and started eating, if you get it soon you should be OK.
[perldigious]: 1nickt: No more red meat! It would be more humane to just kill you, wouldn't it! :-)
[1nickt]: Just don't make it barf.
[1nickt]: perldigious that's exactly what my stepson says.
[1nickt]: the tick that can make you a vegetarian
[perldigious]: Your Mother: Yeah, I have a tool for ticks that I use (mostly on my dogs thankfully), but it's just a cheapo one I got from my vets office... it works pretty good though.
