Hey Everyone! :-)
Agent Thoth discusses more of the trials and tribulations associated with living with hominids. Incidentally, if you've missed Agent Thoth's earlier entries, you can find them here: Thoth's Journal

Agent Thoth's Personal Log
Day Five-Hundred-Ninety:The explosions have subsided somewhat, though there's still the occasional pop or bang of detonation. I'm at a loss as to what caused the local hominids to behave in such a way. I surveiled the area outside my domicile for hours, barely breaking for any naps at all, and yet I failed to detect any rational reason for such conduct.
Considering the risk associated with setting off bombs, no matter how small, especially considering the dearth of rainfall in this locality lately, I would have expected some kind of imminent threat to have been the instigation for such a step. But, by all appearances, the hominids seem to have risked themselves in such a way for nothing more than idle amusement!
I will continue to observe and report on any further findings. However, if no better explanations present themselves, we may need to consider if the hominids are psychologically stable enough to be offered membership in DPCIL, even if their intelligence can be verified.
Those crazy hominids! ;-) You may have noticed that Agent Thoth has a new look. I hope you like his new picture as much as I do, but I'd love to hear your thoughts, either way. Feel free to let me know what you think in the comments. ;-) Happy reading, everyone!
