We had a mama skunk and her litter in a den under our garage last year. One of the kits wandered into our yard, and my two greyhounds brought it in and dropped it onto the wife's heirloom rug. I scooped it up into a dust pan and tossed it outside toward the den.

The fun part was taking the 7'x9' rug outside, spraying it with water, shampooing it, rinsing it several times, and then lifting it over the fence to dry over the next several days. The rug probably weighs close to 75 pounds dry. Getting it thoroughly wet converts it to woven neutronium. Heaving it up and over the fence was... difficult.

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
