How did the poor little grey mouse drown on top of Millbrook?

Do you expect a reasonable answer to that question?

Yes, and it happened recently at the top of a climb.

He died of exhaustion trying to discern recent gunks.com posts on his little mouse iPad

Perhaps he was as stupid as a turkey i.e. when it started raining he looked up to see what was hitting him in the head. As he stood there looking up with his mouth agape he inhaled enough water to overwhelm his normal pulmonary function. So,
he drownded.
I am not able to verify this information as it relates to the turkeys as it came from my children and they've been known to embellish factual events to the point of being absurdly plausible, yet highly unlikely.

A very good try from all of you, but you cannot drown from Chemtrails directly. [Although it Is tied in with weather warfare and rain, so it is possible that Chemtrails where involved, no way to know for sure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90Xr97SlnNM ] I will give you that.

A good try, buy you cannot drown from lyme disease, but you could die from running away from ticks on Plumb Island Operation Paperclip. But this was on Millbrook.

And I did not mean drowning in paperwork "trying to discern recent gunks.com posts".

He did not drown a turkey death, gobbling down too much water.

And you are right to think the Vultures should know, but no, they missed this one.

No, no, and no, but Ralf is the closest.

I will give more information:

Directly the kind of drowning was full blown, sinking to the bottom and floating back up a little later:

It happened right of the beach, before the Old Route 5.7.

I have nothing against mice.

Mice occasionally commit rodent suicide

Good one oenophore. Vultures Know.

Don, is that your route in the Near Trapps by that name ?

I led the last pitch of that route and memorable to say the least.

The fate of this mouse is what is really what is important, I have no time to talk about my climb.

"Mice occasionally commit rodent suicide" No, I am pretty sure it was not suicide at all.

You guys are not even getting warm. I will have to give you another hint. The mouse drowned, and he drowned on the top of the cliff. I do not wish to belittle the fate of this little mouse, and I think it is sad, very sad. But it was a real drowning [http://www.operationtakemehome.org/sar/Fire%20and%20Rescue%20Personnel/Biology%20of%20drowning.pdf [see below]] And when I tell you all how this little grey unfortunate mouse drowned you will all be so sorry you made too many jokes.

All kidding aside, drowning is a very hard way to go, and no mouse with even a no good brain would want to kill himself like this mouse died.

"The usual sequence of events in a drowning is as follows:
Upon submersion, the victim holds his breath until forced to inhale. He gulps water. The water induces spasms of the larynx, which closes of the trachea to protect the lungs. Little water enters the lungs. With the trachea blocked by laryngospasms, no fresh air enters the lungs and the supply of oxygen begins to
fail. Lack of Oxygen, anoxia, affects the brain within 30 seconds the laryngospasms begin to weaken with imminent brain failure. The victim then inhales again, this time aspirating water into the lungs before a fresh spasm closes the trachea again but for a shorter duration. With each successive inhalation, more water is aspirated; anoxia increases, and
laryngospasm duration decreases until they are finally abolished and the lungs are filled with water. If drowning reaches this point, the chance of resuscitation is poor. While spasms
are still occurring and protecting the airway, resuscitation efforts are more likely to succeed. Recovery is such cases may occur spontaneously. For the person confronted with an unconscious individual freshly removed from the water, anesthesiologists have recommended the following guideline:
If the victim is breathing, he will recover spontaneously and resuscitation is not required. If the victim is not breathing, the pulse should be checked. If there is a pulse, begin mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. If there is no pulse begin CPR. Rapid recovery of a drowned person is of vital importance to the victim's family and local law enforcement. Insurance settlements, pensions, contracts and estate problems may be delayed indefinitely pending recovery and identification of the body."

Eh, drowning's not so bad; I saw "The Abyss".

This seems to be the most sympathy expressed for a mouse since Robert Burns did as much.

Ok, I will give you guys a version of what I think happened to the little grey mouse, up to the point just before he drowned.

One day a little gray mouse looked out and saw a dark cloud in the sky, and he knew it was going to rain. So, he scampered along back to his mothers house, he did not want to get wet. He lived under a big rock near the edge of the cliff, too big for R-R to trundle off the cliff, it had a nice view. He felt a few drops of rain, so he ran faster. As it started to rain little steams formed that he had to cross ...

You were the best witness here, yet you ask others to speculate about this lacking all knowledge. Why?

I'm board, and I think you guys could do a much better job at guessing. I still think have no very good guesses. It did happen ... if you guys are such great mountain men how come none of you can guess what happened?

Did it involve a cooler?

Re: How did the little grey mouse drown on top of ...? - 06/27/13 12:08 AM

Or what was in said cooler?

It drank to much beer and as it passed out it fell in small pool of water or big, depending on perspective, and drowned. Poor mouse but if it had been I'm my house it would have gotten zapped I'm sure.

I think I've heard this one. Its a Brutus of Wyde classic... per Dingus


They came back to OCC from lunch one day to find an odd 'contraption' in the office. A stack of tech manuals and phone books had been arranged to create a set of miniature stairs, each step a half inch or so, leading up to the top step.

The top step of this pile ot tech manual stairs was level with a trash can. The trash can was a few inches away from the pile of books. Inside the trash can was a mouse and a single sheet of computer paper with a brown smudge on it.

Brutus was no where to be found but they all knew it was his work.

So he comes back from where ever he was, looks in the can and see's his mouse.

The back story she told me - see they all knew there was a mouse in OCC. So the Pest Control was schedule to poisopn the joint the folllowing day. After his collegues left for lunchy Brutus created an elaborate yet stunningly simply mouse trap with whatever he happened to have at hand - tech manuals, a sheet of paper (gang plank) and a dab of peanut butter on the end (diving board). Mouse walked up the stairs, across the gangplank and out onto the unsupported end of the paper.... down he goes.

Brutus let the mouse go outside in the grassy field.

Yes, Cfrac is the man! You even got the correct brand cooler, WoW. It was in a crevice only 2' deep with the lid left open in the top of the cliff.

I turned the cooler upside down so no one else would fall in.
