Nice!

Physical computing at it's finest.

Or....

OMG - you have created a machine that monitors the wanton death of a rodent. How long till you can make the Pi decide to kill the mouse for itself? How long till the Pi decides it would get more satisfaction out of humans rather than mouses (sic)?

Been reading too much Steinbeck?
When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier.
Go, go, go like a soldier,
So-oldier _of_ the Queen!

No slow motion photography? I would think get one then project that image on the wall. How long till the little buggers figure out it's time to move on to friendlier places :)

Knowing what time of the day the mousetraps go off allows you to get an insight into mousey behaviour, what time they're running around the house. May be of some interest anyway. Of course it's hardly scientific as each mouse's behaviour is measured only once...
