Mouse Mouse is Missing! Answered

Mouse Mouse was last seen on tour with us at Austin's SXSW earlier this week. He made lots of friends at Dorkbot on Saturday, but someone walked off with him while we were setting up at Sunday's PopSci party!

Did he go on walkabout, join a punk band, or leave with a cute female Mouse Mouse? We hope so, but suspect he was simply abducted and can't contact us for help. If you have any information, please let us know!

No kidding, I only made one1 and would really like to have him back. Drop me a note if you've got any news on his whereabouts. We'll take him back, no questions asked.

1Yes, I can and will make another, but it's my art project, and therefore unique. (You may know how to make more children, but still want to keep the ones you've made.)

Maybe he became bicentennial mouse and joined his brothers on the trip to a cage!

Oh yes so odd someone would be unethical enough to steal a taxidermy mouse. Good luck.

Sounds like someone imbibed a wee too much C2H5OH in order to pull off a stunt like this one. *sigh*

Nooooo! Mouse Mouse is gone ={. That really stinks. I bet he shows up soon. We should set up an Instructables Super Search Squad! (The ISSS) Then we could find him.

Sorry, that was my little ADD comment of the day. I hope Mouse Mouse shows up soon.

I am personally associated with someone with aspergers and it can be trying at times. OCD is as rough on the individual as it is on those in the same room with that individual.

Obsessive / compulsive Disorder: The person that can not leave home since they keep going back to check to make sure the stove is turned off or the iron / washing machine, water faucets, etc. The person that must have the lamp facing just so, no tilt to the shade, all the olives lined up in the jar, all the cans labels faced out, clothes hung with hangers faced all in one direction; they may panic over what feels like a racing heart beat, feeling too warm / cold inappropriately; and a host of other symptoms.

in my family, placing cans label facing out is called efficiency and being helpful to the cooks. i always pull on my lock at school 10 or 30 times to make sure its locked. is that a sign of ocd?

Can there be mild cases because if I do things I get a feeling of discomfort unless I do it in one way or direction?

Congratulations! You have mild OCD. Welcome to the club. But of course, it isn't a psychologist's prescription. And by the way, LEGOS RULE!!!!!!

Let me tell you, sleep apnea and mild narcolepsy are not fun, especially for those in the PASSENGER seat of the car I am driving (I have only ever had one fender bender because of it, in the 35 years of driving).

OCD = Gotta touch it. Not the right way. Fix it before you do anything else. Small thing out of order. Bugging you all day long. Finally fix it. Another thing out of order. Dang.

Etc.

Thats a shame. Maybe you should make "Mouse mouse 2.0-With GPS tracker! " That would rock! Good luck finding it.

I think that kind of gear would require a rat, or perhaps a squirrel; but then the pun is lost!

A "Squirrelly mouse" ? :-) Actually, maybe the GPS is overkill.....an dye bomb like they use in bank robberies, would probably suffice :-)

that could get expensive, seeing as youd need a lazer web or radio frequency to detonate it as it goes out of range.

Maybe a large pregnant mouse. JK I am sick and wrong. But one time before we (my family) had live traps in my basement my dad caught a pregnant mouse and the trap cut off its head and a few inches away it had like 3 babies that had crawled out and died . It was so sick!

oddly I narrowly missed a passing squirrel on my bicycle the other day, on the path going to work I also narrowly missed a collection of prams and had to forge an new trail through some undergrowth and a bush, the bush retaliated with sharp things, please no squirrels, I just pulled a bush spike out of my hand, with clicking and GPS capacities they would appear at my door and break my legs no doubt.
