This is funny and good on several levels...

A. It would work

B. I love the extra views folks have added..  take a look...

Finding offense where none is intended is a form of selfishness.

When facts change, I change my mind.  What do you do?

Hell yes it works.  I've got one.  And yes it is motion activated so that means any motion... like neighbors, UPS drivers, dinosaurs, wandering children, etc.  Effective and fun all at the same time.

If Rau Mong Toi is the same as what I know as Rau Muong aka Water Spinach aka Water Morning Glory, I would love to get my hands on some.  I ate a ton of it in Vietnam.  Delicious and abundant.  But I had read that it was classified by the USDA as a noxious weed and could not be grown/sold legally.

It's called creeping spinach (not in the spinach family, tho).

It is a BFW farmers market most days..  go and grab a bunch, cook it and tell us how delicious it is..

Looks like rau m?ng t?i is not the same thing as rau mu?ng.  Oh well.

Edit: Dunno how to insert the diacritical marks.
