"Are you saying mice ate a ton of feed in less than a year".
Upon reading this at lunch I started to blurt out:
"How many mice...."
rsc, who was doing a Sudoku, reading the bridge column or some similar thing said before I finished the sentence:
"No, I'm not doing this"
At which I burst into giggles and interjected:
"this is what happens when we've lived together so long".
Assuming a mice can eat about an ounce a day then 2000*16/300= 107, so the answer is 107 mice.
And now off to dance camp.
