Closed bug #4151, "rat on ventilation duct".
pinkie pie
The problem: Justin threw Zoe's stuffed rat on top of the ventilation ducts here at FreshBooks HQ. (I later found out that this was because Zoe threw the rat at Justin but I was working with incomplete information to start with.)

So I tried to get it down by scraping an office paper box lid attached to the 4m pole I use to adjust the server room A/C vents, but couldn't find it. I didn't even know which section of duct it was on. I tried taping a mirror to the pole but the mirror was too small. And then it hit me: TECHNOLOGY!

Cellphone + duct tape + 4m stick =

And from there it was easy to scoop it down with the box lid on top of the stick. Justin was surprised to see the rat rescued when he got back from wherever he was.

That's a real ticket number.

This actually happened.

Justin totally deserved to have a rat thrown at him...on the flip side, I don't think the rat deserved to be thrown at Justin.

You're, like, a hipper, zen-stylin' Red Green!

P.S. GEE-NI-US, as the coyote used to say.

While many homes today are built airtight for greater energy efficiency, the ventilation process helps substitute fresh air for stale air, which is then exhausted from the space. Both can occur by way of ventilation ducts. Flexible Duct
