Geeze, how many bugs do you have to have in your home to actually not be concerned that you're walking around covered in them?

/had a few in my apartment back in college too

Those are house caterpillars. They eat spiders, roaches, and other things you don't want in your house. Seeing one is a good sign. It means it cant find any other bugs to eat.

Great Porn Dragon: SlagginOff: I figured this was pretty much par for the course in Detroit? I'm pretty sure they don't have running water there, so how was he supposed to shower to keep the bugs away?

Now now, this is Detroit, not Appalachia :D It's my understanding that Detroit DOES have running water in the non-abandoned properties, it just has to be boiled for ten minutes or run through a filter with UV light to destroy the microbes :D

(Seriously, there are places in Appalachia that still define "running water" as "stuff what flows in the creek", and still use outhouses. Yes, Virginia, there are worse-off places than Detroit, and they are called "Deep Appalachia" and "Certain First Nations reservations out west like Pine Ridge".)

I am aware of this, but those places don't have professional sports teams that I despise so I don't derive as much joy from making fun of them. :)

zinny: That some people resign themselves to live in filth is amazing to me.

After nearly twenty years as a carpet cleaner in the Detroit area, I could CSB the hell out of this.

It's my day off, and I try not to think about it on my day off. So instead I'm going to have another shower.

I'm surprised, you'd think that even the cockroaches would be high-tailing it out of Detroit these days.

almandot: I thought somebody wore wires onto the stand as if they were trying to secretly get something said recorded as evidence while in a frickin court session. :P

We'll blame the misunderstanding on the fact that you've never been to Detroit.

I_C_Weener: Bedbugs, cockroaches, or fleas....OH MY!

...or dung beetles. Or praying mantises. Or stink bugs. Or deer ticks. Or....

Is there an entymologist in the court?!?

Hmmm. I was expecting a meth head and imaginary bugs.
