Ultimate Fly Devastation

In the past we had one of those ‘robot’ fly spray things, the ones that site up high and poison the air every 15 or so minutes.

A few months ago, when we moved to a place close to ground level, we rediscovered flies, and bought another robot. It seems we had forgotten the smell that these machines puke into the air, and quickly turned it off.

As a replacement, we bought an electric fly swat.

It is awesome.

After successfully ‘getting’ a fly, one can must ensure it is dead by holding the zap button and jiggling the tennis racket shaped tool of death for a few seconds. This results in a fantastic blue-white light show, a crackling noise and the satisfying knowledge that you were personally responsible for the death of one more fly – without using poison.

Besta TA-3000 Electronic Chinese-English Dictionary (Review)

the Besta TA-3000 is the Chinese Language Learner’s best friend! I know mine has been tremendously helpful – unlike other electronic dictionaries that I have tried, which can be troublesome and irritating to use, the Besta has always performed brilliantly, and been a pleasure to use. The only thing I’d change about it is its name: “The Besta TA-3000” sounds a bit … ‘80’s sci-fi?

Half-way to the subway station, my stomach gave me another warning. I paid heed, and returned to the toilet.
