  1. There was a funny piece on This American Life about building a better Mousetrap:

    Ira talks with Andy Woolworth, an Executive Vice President in charge of new product development at the world’s largest manufacturer of mousetraps, Woodstrean Corporation, in Lititz, Pennsylvania. About once a month, Andy is contacted by someone who thinks he’s invented a better mousetrap. Ira and he review some of the ideas that seemed particularly bad.

  2. I used to use a heavy metal pan (like the ones caterers use in buffet lines) two flat wooden stir sticks and some peanut butter. Put the peanut butter on the end of a stick laying flat on the floor and on the other end prop up the pan with the other stick. Getting them to balance was the tough part. Success was nearly 100% when used on a concrete floor. Just slide a piece of posterboard under, drop the critter in a 5 gallon bucket and you are ready for relocation.

    That said, i like their bottle drop method.
