    What does a splatometer result in?

    "milometer"? What kind of abuse of the English language is that? The proper term is "odometer". Cannot these Englishmen speak English?

    And I invite them to drive through southcentral Kansas in the summer - we need no puny "splatometer" - we need an "thudometer":

    June Bug - THUD
    Grasshopper - THUD
    Cicada - THUD

    And then you find that by some quirk of biochemistry, these bugs seem to be converting plant sap into some form of epoxy resin that resists removal, even with 1600PSI hot water and surfactant.

      Oh yeah? I invite them to drive through cockroach-central in New York City. Have you ever heard a truck axle snap?

    By repeating the survey in the future, we may be able to detect, for example, whether wildlife-friendly gardening and the new national agri-environment schemes are helping to
    raise numbers of this crucial component of our wildlife.
    geez, don't help them do this.
