Surrender Dorothy

One of the pair of groundhogs who have taken up residence under my front porch. He shall become part of my experiments in rodent beam weapons. Oh, yeah, you think he looks cute now, but WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE COUPLE MOLES OF THESE CRITTERS COMING AT YOU AT A SUBSTANTIAL FRACTION OF C!!!

Just surrender now. Really.

meaning: starting point, means, use, through, because
以下 == ika == below
以内 == inai == within

Originally a pictogram of a person behind a plow; how this character came to acquire its current meanings is obscure. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic:  'Person uses plow as starting point.'
