Velociraptors are jaded by grape juice (XKCD.com)
In the link above, Mr XKCD was contacted by someone with a Ph. D. in vertebrate paleontology, determined to share his thoughts on protecting yourself (and house) from Velociraptor attack (regarding this comic in particular):
The professor explained (with asonishingly good rationale) that there's a substancial chance that Velociraptors would be repulsed by methyl anthranilate, a natural compound found in many of the less sweet fruit varieties. Therefore it was explained that carrying around a super-soaker full of grape juice will not only have the theoretical asset of protecting you from Velociraptor, it will have the pragmatic asset of protecting you from thirst.
If you're of a slightly geeky nature and like your humour tailored to your abilities then XKCD is the place to do it (XKCD.com) because I've been a loyal reader now for months and only this morning discovered that his blog (blag.xkcd.com) is more of the same. The "blag" has lots of comments, his site has lots of hits so I think it's fair to say that the man behind XKCD is a genious. I shall keep reading it and I suggest that you do the same.
