Because they are the unholy spawn of the devil?
More evidence that evolution doesn’t like us.
Evolution doesn’t “like.” Full stop. “Liking” is not a thing of which it is capable.
I’m aware of that. My comment was a reference to this.

What is it with this article repeating everything?
This article repeats everything.
What is it with that?
What? What what?
….ah, I see.
I’m mostly on my phone these days. Those cool looking callout quotes in the article are just inline text on a phone…
The analogies in the article are like drifting hammers made of limoncello.
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/
It sure looks like a mosquito and not the fly in your link. What makes you think it’s a fly?

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.
Now splain why worms don’t drown.
Fuckin worms. How do they work?
