"It combines the image of the laboratory mouse, and a scientist, because they are related to each other and serve as one case. Mouse is captured in the moment of scientific discovery. If you look into her eyes, you can see that this little mouse has come up with something. But the whole symphony of scientific discovery, joy, "eureka" has not yet begun to sound "- described the project by its author, Novosibirsk artist Andrew Kharkevich.

    It fits. Reminds me of the monument to mules and other animals used in war. The inscription reads:

    "They had no choice."

        Ok, that's weird. I never got the email notification of that spam comment at all so I didn't know it made it through.

          Heck if I know. For 5 minutes there reputation-shaming (aka the "Yelp attack") seemed like an idea - and one that could be automated with some 'post here if you admit to being a con artist' tarpits* placed on popular pages - but all publicity is good publicity and nobody who hires these guys actually pays attention to what they're doing, right?

          *It'd be so much more fun to put actual prohibited speech in their mouths, but I have a feeling that would piss off some people with important jobs enough that they'd go after the enabler rather than whoever's running the bots that submit the magic forms. But maybe it'd be really satisfying for them to get to unleash some whupass on spammers.
