I grew up in the country and country people would often ask young children the following question "How do you catch a rabbit?" Many thought deeply about it and would wrinkle up their foreheads and screw up their noses. Some would answer with elaborate answers whilst others would say simply "I don't know." The air would bristle with anticipation as the child hung onto the adults expression waiting with exasperation to find out how. "Well," the child would ask "how do you catch a rabbit?"
"Sprinkle salt on their tail." Would be the reply ... the child would then suffer more exasperation and say "But, how do you get close enough to sprinkle salt on their tail?"
"Ah, now then - that's a secret." Would slowly and softly come as the reply.
This tale came to mind when it was announced that criminals who eat high quantities of salt or processed food leave behind clear fingerprints and are more easily caught.
*Sprinkle salt to catch a rabbit ... sprinkle salt to catch a thief!
I couldn't resist ... I have downloaded Google's Chrome and now have it riding alongside Firefox3 and Internet Explorer. Yes I now have all three browsers. So far, I have found Chrome to be slightly more quicker than the other two browsers. I like the idea of it having tabs along the top of the screen and the red warning when you happen to traverse on to a rogue site ... with a red box warning you that to open this particular website could damage your computer ... yes, it seems quick to alert you.
Will I keep all three? Well at the moment I'm not sure ... at the moment I think it's crackin' (as they say when something is very good).
