Stage your own Panhellenic Games and use it to crown the victors?

If you have an ailing pet hamster/mouse/gerbil/stick insect/wife then get a large jamjar, grab a handful of leaves, tear them up, throw them in, seal it, wait for about 30 to 40 minutes and you'll have your very own personal euthanasia clinic - just drop the ailing creature in a shut the lid.

It's true. Deadly fumes you see.

No, though it doesn't contain all that much.
Apparently if you use a twig to write/draw on the leaves then put them inside your clothes next to your skin for a while the writing/drawing turns brown and becomes easy to read/see.

When I get loads of prumings/clippings like that I put them through a shredder and put the shreddings on a compost heap. Mixing the laurel about 50:50 with grass clipping will speed up the decomposition.

Never sure if this is a good use of electricity, but anything less that 1 inch in diameter ends up on the compost heap.
