    These candles use paraffin wax, which tastes good to them, but has no nutritional worth.

    Reminds me of the Simpson episode where Homer has his hand stuck in the drinks machine. The firemen are about to amputate his arm to free him when one of them asks Homer "are you still holding on to the can" and Homer responds "your point being..?"

      While certain populations of European hamsters are critically endangered, the European Hamster as a whole is considered to be of least concern.

      Those were Syrian hamsters (Also known as golden hamsters). This is a European hamster. The hamster in this clip is larger, and European hamsters have not been domesticated. It is illegal to own them as pets.
