I wanted to show pictures of my catheter insertion, they said no, your loss.
There does seem to be an influx of non-elaborators. I blame it on Indianas recent discovery of the personal home computer.

The downslide started with the a$$ thread which triggered an atomisation of
testosterone causing most members especially the short ones to revert to
their Neanderthal ancestral stages which then attracted the typical biker
gang loving female resulting in a swarm of juveniles wannabees attracted to the honey.
Meanwhile, older members of forum are sitting on their tushes worrying about
their tushes unless its about obamhill. Even TK is out of form.
And then we have Shane. i am at a loss here. Add to that the defanged clk and
deflated clk and yosey show. Even elau can't cook up a head of steam and jaybird
seems to have taken one too many lumps from the bear who is sitting pretty glum
nowadays in spite of his apparent mastery of the world.
And lastly the usual sidekicks are not up to snuff with their petty side arguments
and whatnots.



Thus the sorry ass state.

Synthetic dingo urine could save marsupials

By Nick Squires in Sydney
Last Updated: 3:01pm BST 12/06/2008

The lives of millions of Australian marsupials could be saved with the invention

Countless possums, wallabies and kangaroos are killed with poison by timber companies wanting to protect young saplings.

Scientists have found that the urine of Australia's native wild dog acts as a powerful deterrent to the marsupials.

They hope to invent a synthetic equivalent which could then be produced on a commercial scale, providing an effective but harmless alternative to poisons such as cyanide and the compound 1080.

A team led by Dr Michael Parsons, of Curtin University in Western Australia, has found that dingo urine - made into a gel - repels all but the most determined animals from gardens and plantations.

During trials conducted in Tasmania, 80 per cent of possums and 78 per cent of wallabies steered clear of areas marked by the gel.

Dingoes never reached Tasmania, but it is thought the urine triggered a response similar to that which would have been produced by encountering a Tasmanian tiger, prior to the species' extinction in the 1930s.

A "urine barrier" kept Forester kangaroos away from a garden full of rose beds for a month.

Film footage of the kangaroos showed them freezing about five metres from the garden's edge, before turning tail and hopping away.

The raw urine was collected from animals kept at the Australian Dingo Conservation Association in Canberra, and flown fresh to Perth.

But its limited supply - there are only a few dingoes in captivity, and pure-bred dingoes are a vanishing breed in the wild because of inter-breeding with feral dogs - means that the gel is expensive.

A 40ml bottle costs A$20 to produce - hence the necessity to come up with an artificial replica.

Researchers found that dingo urine contains a surprisingly complex range of chemicals. "We're talking about 200 different elements, from pheromones to minerals," Dr Parsons said today.

Each chemical will have to be carefully copied by scientists at the government-run Chemistry Centre in Western Australia.

"Twenty years ago this wouldn't have been possible. If we can synthesise it then we can reduce the cost of a bottle to a matter of cents rather than $20. We're looking at 2010 as our target date," said Dr Parsons.

"We're really excited because we've shown that dingo urine works as a deterrent. "It's a humane, safe, biodegradable alternative to trapping, shooting and poisoning."

The project, which was recently awarded a A$1.6 million grant, is supported by the Australian RSPCA.

The gel is likely to be of interest not only to timber companies but by gardeners fed up with the night-time marauding of their local possum population.
And in a special message from Curtin University to BWOT members, contributions are always welcome.

Thus the sorry ass state.

Let me know what you would like to see here and I'll start working on it.

Maybe more political threads?

Lion urine has been used by a student from south Wales to study the link between smell and stress in humans.
David Reardon, 21, from Newport, who is studying biological sciences at Coventry University said that the project was a roaring success.



Urine taken from lions at Twycross Zoo in the west Midlands and other scents including roses, citrus and cinnamon were used in the experiment.

The aim of the research was to find out how stressed people became when smelling certain odours.

People taking part in the research were asked to smell unmarked containers which held t-shirts soaked in a variety of odours while their reactions were recorded.

"I wanted to do a project using the resources that were near me and there is zoo near Coventry, so I thought I would do a project using mammal scent," said Mr Reardon.

"I think the zoo thought it was a bit of a prank when I first asked them and I had to get written confirmation from my project supervisor.

"In a nutshell my research showed that women prefer sweeter smells and the men weren't that bothered.

"In the animal kingdom smells are used to assist in finding a mate.


Lion urine was used to determine the stress levels in humans

"Humans are animals and I wanted to see whether the same applied to the scent of men and women and also the different reactions to pleasant and unpleasant smells.

"I decided to include the scent of lion urine because lions are one of the biggest predators and I wanted to investigate the stress reaction felt by humans when they smelt this scent," he said.

Mr Reardon asked 16 people to smell unmarked sealed containers while he recorded their reaction, heart rate, blood pressure and immune response.

"Many of the women triggered an excited response when smelling the scent of roses and the men preferred the citrus fragrance," he said.

Unappealing

But the smell of lion urine did not appeal to the participants.

"One person vomited after they smelt the lion urine," he said.

Doctor Rubina Mian who led the stress research group at the university said: "I am delighted with the initiative David has shown in this project.

"I think Twycross Zoo were a little confused when David asked for some lion pee but they have been most helpful."
