Jim from Saint Paul: Hopefully Fark can explain to me why this isn;t cute. Because so far, it's cute.


Hamsters are renowned for their startle response.  They have extremely acute hearing as well, so even moderate sudden loudish (or not so loudish) noises directed at them is like someone dropping a metal bucket on your head and going to town with a metal spoon when you least expect it.  This trick is actually a cruel terror inducing traumatic experience for the little guys.

E_Henry_Thripshaws_Disease: At 41, am I too old to get a hamster or a gerbil?

Rats are much better as pets - clean, smart, affectionate


This. But if you decide on a rat, be sure to get at least a pair of them, because they are very social creatures.

Oh, and rats seem to be able to experience empathy, which is more than I can say for a lot of people I know...

Hamsters can't act. They were having tiny hamster strokes

Surly U. Jest: I misread that as hipsters.


You'd use a real gun with hipsters.

Richard Gere is 65 so I think you're safe.

Better acting by a couple of those hamsters than in some Hollywood releases.

That's what I suspected. To hell with all the people in that video.
