Gather all the guineapigs and pit them into any cavern level that you feel needs some hands on exploration. Cave crocs will eventually snag them up.

I never, ever thought of this.

This is a fantastic way of getting rid of cats. I am so going to do this.

What's wrong with using magma? That's almost always the easiest method.
I have issues channeling it properly to do that method. I end up flooding the fortress with magma.

I did just dump a cat down a deep pit I found whilst exploring the caves. It is wandering around a bit.

For me, all male migrants go into the military.

All female migrants go into the civilian corp (doing non-quality tasks and hauling).

I basically have one dwarf per other profession.

If I ever have more than are useful for hauling labors, I make them amateur masons and build a huge entranceway. Skill there doesn't matter, and neither does risk. They die? you win. They build? you win.

well... dieing does suck because of the ghosts, but oh well.

No! No! I will not massacre my children. Instead, I'll make them corpulent on crappy mass-produced quarry bush biscuits and questionably grown mushroom alcohol, and then send them into the military when they turn 12...

Sigged. New release should only make it even more evident.
