I was thinking about mouse traps today.. I had to buy one the other day so made a trip to Atwood's.
You can only buy a package of two traps.. If you only want one you're just kinda screwed..
They had these spiffy plastic mouse traps (two to a package)..
They wanted 5 bucks for these.. $2.50 each.. I have no clue as to why they might be worth 5 times as much as the wooden ones..
And then they had the trusty old standard mouse trap with a wood base..
And these were, a package, of two for 99 cents.. or 50 cents each..
Is plastic that much more expensive than wood?
I got the trusty old, cheaper, wooden ones..
But I was thinking.. How much does it cost to manufacture one of these? A penny? Two pennies? If that..
Anyway.. now I have one dead mouse and an extra trap.. I think I'll make one of those mouse trap driven cars.. That might be cool..
