    Because they are the unholy spawn of the devil?

  3. What is it with this article repeating everything?

    This article repeats everything.

    What is it with that?

    The analogies in the article are like drifting hammers made of limoncello. 

  5. Odd that this article about mosquitoes is illustrated with a photo of a dolichopodid fly. Mosquitoes are in an entirely different family. For reference: http://www.flickr.com/photos/horsepunchkid/7324490604/

    One early Spring in Yosemite, I was enjoying a short hike in one of the Sequoia groves when a nice April snowfall came down, so I sat in a fallen tree trunk and let my senses take in the soothing spectacle.  Then it just popped into sharp relief, a carefree mosquito perfectly navigating among the falling snowflakes, which just about ruined the whole thing.  So I dragged my ass back to the car, thinking “we’re screwed”.

    Raindrops will not kill a mosquito but a laser beam will.  We need more lasers and less raindrops, I think.
