    Girls Girls Girls....

    So the chess game with my 7 year old daughter was going great until a gnat landed on the board, game over, couldn't get her in that room after that.

    Hehe. Nice. My two year old daughter is scared of flies. The other day one was buzzing around her head and she was so scared of it.

    On a side note based on the title of this thread I thought it was about Motley Crue.

    I too dislike insects to such a degree that I avoid entire rooms.

    The only insects I dislike are cockroaches. If I see one cockroach I throw away all my dishes and have the house exterminated. Not really fear though, more like disgust.

    Maybe it's because I have a better taste in music, I thought it was about girls.

    To be honest, Motley Crue is where the title came from, guess you kids just have no taste in music

    YouTube - Motley Crue - Girls, Girls, Girls: Dolby Stereo - MTV Version

    Girls, Girls, Girls is music that you can never play loud enough. Hehe.

    However it is sad when my co-workers and I go out to lunch and I have to apologize for my old classical tastes in music. Most of them are in their mid 20's and Motley Crue isn't cool to them at all. Motley Crue is now considered classic rock. I just puked a bit in the back of my throat when I said that.

    But to get back on topic and to expand my original post my little girl threw a huge fit and cried forever when a fly was buzzing around her the other day. She tried to run around and get away from it and it just kept dive bombing her. It was a rather big fly but nothing that could hurt her. It was sooo funny that if I had recorded it I probably would have made some money off of it.

    The only insects I can think of that I truly despise are (in this order): gnats, mosquitos, flies, ticks, and roaches. I'm sure there are others, but those are the most common, anyway. Other than those, I have quite a lot of respect and appreciation for most insects (my favorite probably being the ant), and throughout my life I've even handled many types of spiders, bees, wasps, etc, without ever being bitten (my theory is that they somehow 'sense' your intentions). In fact, just the other day I accidentally walked through the web of a large spider and it landed on my shirt. When I placed it (along with it's torn web) back onto the tree branch it had come from, it reacted as if nothing had happened - it simply consumed it's web (presumably) and rebuilt it's home in the exact same place - only this time with the anchor lines strategically moved to a higher angle! Intelligent and perceptive. Anyway, I think most people tend to underestimate and undervalue insects, even killing them indescriminately whatever reasons, which is a shame. They're quite fascinating (and often ecologically important) creatures, actually.

    I was once bitten by an Australian Redback spider while donning a par of gardening gloves. Not knowing anything about redbacks, I largely ignored the small pain that came immediately. Around 30 minutes later I was being rushed to the hospital in the most agonizing pain I've ever experienced in my life and with an high fever. (Port Pirie hospital has a story about a 154 pounds grown man crying like a baby he's going to die, and with a strong accent). Damn me!
    Incidentally, insects don't bother me at all but the experience made me gain a lot of respect and admiration for this small and beautiful animal.

    Roaches indeed disgust me. Not even rats disgust me as much (I actually like most rats). This is the only insect I can't stand and actively kill it with a passion. With most anything else I'm know to actually pick them and send them on to their little lives outside the house.

    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Hehe. Well, I kill them. Depending on where I am, if I see a spider like the one above -- time for the .22LR, even moths get that big (and yes, they bite ).

    Don't worry, there's enough .

    . Lucky you it wasn't a funnel web.

    LOL!! Never been to Australian but a friend worked on a sheep farm there where the hands slept on a porch, and he said the first thing you did after waking up was look down and gently brush the widows off.

    I just recently (think) I got rid of bedbugs. They are actually not as bad as mosquitos, and not 1/1000th as bad as scabies, but still put a slight chill in my spine.

    @bubba: Motley Crue was never ever cool. You must have them confused with this
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge

    I can't say I blame you - I've heard horror stories about some of the critters you guys have in the Land Down Under (eg: the spider that bit Mario). In fact, I'm not sure why, but whenever I think of the song "Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport" I imagine the narrator being the victim of an encounter with some exotic creature. Random thought. Anyway, only an Australian or a Texas Redneck would shoot an insect.
