    I hope you're not counting this as one of them... I agree it sucks but there was about 2 years between your post and the one before it.

    True, but both mine were in the last two months! Guess I must have posted on a search result I'd done. Nutty me- nutty as a squirrel.

    i have a solution to eliminate the bastards:
    Step 1- take an old extension cord you dont need cut open the sheating. then care fully strip about 2-3 feet of either the positive or neutral wire.
    Step 2- once one of the wires are stripped take some tin foil and wrap the edges around the wire and ensure that there is good space for a squirrel to step on.
    Step 3- place your electrical circle of death in your back yard and place some bait in the cent and on the tin foil.
    Step 4- plug in the cord, open a beer, and watch those little fuckers FRY!!!!
