But it's so much more satisfying to squish them

Researchers: Smashing mosquitoes onto skin may cause infection

Growing up in the deep woods of Northern Ontario, I have squished a mosquito or two in my life. I've also cause the demise of .. oh, let's say, millions, as a conservative estimate .. of blackflies. I should have died of brachiola algerae by now, don't you think?

Sometimes I get really really homesick for Northern Ontario. Then I remember the blackflies, and the feeling passes rather quickly.
