Not possible.

Yep, they were the base sink speices for the Black Death aka, Bubonic plague that wiped out half of Europe's population and decimated most of Asia, North Africa and Europe in a succession of cyclic plagues. Marmots are the orginal hosts, thus the old Mongol tradtition of never aprocahing a dead Marmot and kiiing them on sight from a distence.

For the sake of checking first, I just did an experiment with all three of my dogs, who happen to be three different breeds. I held their snout in place while I moved a cookie around over their head. They must all truly be wonder dogs since all three of them were able to look up.

According to U.K. law,a pregnant woman can urinate anywhere she wants in public - even in a policeman's helmet.

Other silly British laws:

* In Chester, you can only shoot a Welsh person with a bow and arrow inside the city walls and after midnight.

* You may not shoot a Welsh person on Sunday with a longbow in the Cathedral Close in Hereford.

* In Liverpool, it is illegal for a woman to be topless in public except as a clerk in a tropical fish store.

* In York, excluding Sundays, it is perfectly legal to shoot a Scotsman with a bow and arrow.

* Committing suicide is classified as a capital crime.

* Placing a postage stamp that bears the Queen (or King) upside down is considered treason.

* A license is required to keep a lunatic.

The one about the Eskimos and the freezer cracked me up. When I lived in South Dakota, we used to keep food frozen in our garage in the winter. We would transfer it to our freezer a week or so before we would cook it, to begin the thawing process! Crazy! :wacko:
