what is poisoning my pears? squirrels won't eat them?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

i have a pear tree that is yearly devoured by a bunch of squirrels. but this year, they are all over the place. UNEATEN!!! now, i am not a ecofreak but that is rather troubling considering i usually have some kind of sinus irritation, never had it until 1991-1992. i see planes with forked tails in the sky with colored trails behind them. what the hell? am i going to have to move to tanzania to get away from all the shit?

I can't let this one slip. I just can't... ;)

I think that explains it...

Please tell me that you made that up especially for this post. Please don't tell me you found it during a web-search....


Is the Squirrel King still around? Given what's been said in the past about the squirrels taking over the world, maybe it's a ploy to make you think it's poison fruit.

Doesn't Tanzania have squirrels, too?

Oh, and on the local news coverage about 'y2k the movie' they did a close up of several squirrels while the electric co. head talked about the more likely reasons for power outages.

Beware the furry brown rodents. They're smarter than they look.

I made it for a previous thread, which devolved into squirrel paranoia (I know, just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're NOT out to get you). ;)

But I think I must have been seeing into the future and predicting this thread. Spooooooky. :)

Mary --

Is there a reason to presume the pears are poisoned becuase the squirrels aren't at them this year? Have you had "flybys" leaving chemtrails? If so, they would also affect any other croips the squirrels had access to, except maybe nuts, nuts and more nuts. Are the squirrels still in the neighborhood?

Honestly, there may be something else at work on their appetites -- solar flares, geomagnetic activity, etc.
