Rat roadkill

WARNING: This is definitely not for the squeamish! If you don't like looking at dead animals, then leave this page NOW!

While walking outside my house, I noticed a squashed carcass on the road. On closer inspection, and from the look of its tail, this looked like a rat. So being morbid me, I snapped a picture of it. I continued taking pictures of it about every 12 hours. Eventually, someone must've cleaned up the roadkill, because it wasn't there on the third day.

"Enjoy" these pictures!

Rat roadkill - soon after death
Judging by the state of the body, including the redness of that organ that's sticking out, I think this was soon after it got struck by a vehicle.

Rat roadkill - 12 hours later
About 12 hours later. Still mostly intact, but much flatter.

Rat roadkill - 24 hours later
About 24 hours later. And I think that dark stain on the road surface is from the body.

Rat roadkill - 36 hours later
About 36 hours later. Flies were buzzing around, but I still stooped down to get the picture.

Lunchtime train of thought

"Comex was this weekend. I wonder if my lunch buddy went for it. I didn't go because I had nothing to buy. But I'd really like a Blu-ray player. Need to check it out. Also need to learn more about Nike Free and Adizero. What are those shoes about? If I buy one of them, then I'd need to start exercising again. Hmm, exercise. I remember when I trained hard for my Sec 4 physical fitness test. Class actually cheered when I did a pull-up! Trained with repetitive stretches and push-ups. Reminds me of repetitive squats done by Mr Ying. Ah, Mr Ying, that strict discipline teacher. He and Mr Wee. Everyone feared Mr Wee, but we all loved him at the end."

"Wait, how did I end up thinking about Mr Wee?"
