Lemming suicide is fiction [English Bob, Jul 03 2008]
Not cuddly at all. [8th of 7, Jul 03 2008]
||I need to know if lemurs have opposing thumbs. 
||From what I've observed of lemurs, they sleep a lot. When not sleeping, they like to eat or fight. But I like the general "tradespeople in fancy dress" concept; it should be extended to other disciplines.
||I'm not sure they would be competent builders, why not try beavers instead?
||Would they still make cat-calls and wolf-whistles?
||Dyslexics beware - if you accidentally hire "Let Lemmings Build Your House" you could end up with something rather different from what you expected ......
||Lemurs have opposable thumbs so this could work. Also they are very cute so you could spend the day watching them and go 'awwww'. Opposing thumbs might be more interesting, watch thumbs fight each other!
||They don't have our kind of opposable thumbs though, just on which are separated and which can be used to wedge stuff into their hands. Maybe insufficiently opposable.
||Assuming you mean the suicide thing, [8th of 7], it's a myth. If there's some other characteristic of lemmings which makes them unsuitable for house building - never mind. If there's anything else that makes lemmings interesting, at all, I'd like to hear it. Poor things.
||"Lemmings can be fierce little buggers, bearing their teeth when approached and decimating entire sections of countryside of vegetation. In fact, the word "lemming" comes from the Norwegian "lemmus" which means destruction. "
||They're trying to get to Scotland.
||Scotland ? A country already infested with huge hairy destructive creatures ?
||There certainly is in me. I want to go to Scotland too. Also, i frequently wish i was dead (OK, so they don't, but you know what i mean).
