    Ha! Thanks. This was the last probe I owned that had any action. Balkans '98ish time frame.

    Talking about EOD, I remember being chosen to review the EOD program shortly after I was drafted. For some strange reason I vaguely recall the duties; find unexploded munitions, ordnance whatever. But I distinctly remember them touting the fact we would have semi-private housing with thick mattresses and curtains on the windows.

    Why would that stick with me? Maybe because of the contrast of WWII barracks with 50 other guys, the red waxed cement floors and butt cans nailed to posts.

    I dunno. Regardless, I decided to pass. Can’t say I regret the decision.

    I guess you could say those mines had been ratted out.

    Cool Guy. I don't care if he's a rat. Human rats are the worse. We don't have the real rats in Alberta (there is a program in place since 1920's I believe), but I'm impressed with that not so little fellow.

    I heard the Navy had something similar that, but it was for a completely different purpose.

    That doesn’t pass the smell test.

    Me too. When I saw the word "giant" I thought of nutra rats.

    They eat them in Louisiana you know. I've never tried it but I heard they are very good.

    LOL! No silly, ratatouille doesn't have any meat in it.
