For such goddamn religious people, Texans would appear to be pretty farking stupid about reading Biblical signs. Drought, fire, plague... Your god wants a word with you.

It's gone too far for that even. Texas needs to be given back to the prehistoric ocean whence it came

a simple mosquito bite is really not a reason for someone to call 911,

"it seems some people are overreacting and calling 911 when they're bitten by a mosquito."
Send the police to their house, arrest them for making crank calls to 911. Fine them 10x the cost of the call and send ing the police to their house.

TADA problem solved.

Thank you mass media for working up the undereducated Texas masses into a fearfull frenzy with the constant "west nile is about to kill you" stories on CNN. We really appreciate it.

Give it about 100 years. Immigration (legal and otherwise) and demographic shifts will see the entire American southwest (including Texas and California) become culturally and eventually legally Mexican.

Huh. I thought this would be about them calling me five times a day to tell me they're spraying.

OTOH, I can't wait for the first suelarity that will ensue when someone gets told by 911 to get lost with the mosquito bite and later dies of the virus.

A: Its ass.

I can only see this as a vast improvement.

if you have an auto immune disease like myself... its not a good idea to get bit by mosquitos this year. Luckily I don't go outside past 8 pm.

"A plague of locusts".... come on, who is bothered by locusts now?? Now a plague of MOSQUITOES, that makes perfect sense.

The US USED to be repeatedly terrorized by plagues of locust back in the pioneering days. After certain weather conditions, the population would explode, they'd sweep across the landscape, eating anything and everything, devastating the landscape and causing massive, unpredictable agricultural losses.

But the species responsible- the Rocky Mountain locust- suddenly went extinct back at the very end of the 19th century. Nobody knows for sure why. It was ubiquitous all over the western US, then disappeared within only a few years. We only have a few specimens, in fact, to verify that they even existed as distinct species in the first place. Some say it was development of their breeding grounds, but they seemed to breed just about everywhere, and should have only declined, given how easily they reproduced.

Now, it's a biblical plague that sounds like a weird joke, kinda hard to relate to. But there ARE parts of the world which do get hit periodically with a "plague of locust". In 2004, the shared geographic region of Mauritania, Mali, Niger and Sudan was devasted by Desert Locust.

My next door neighbor's niece died last month from West Nile.

She was shiatting herself, writhing in pain, unable to talk, and having seizures every few minutes towards the end.

But by all means, let's make fun of people who are afraid to die like that.

That looks more like a Crane Fly, aka "mosquito hawk". It doesn't bite people. Despite the name, it doesn't eat mosquitoes, either. Unfortunately.

Health officials say even if the West Nile Virus is transmitted by a mosquito bite the person would have no symptoms while the virus incubates. An individual wouldn't begin to feel ill until the virus manifested itself several days later, so calm the fark down.

Yeah they made us give our roads real names, like "Tick Bite" and "Chicken Shack". Praise The LORD, most of our roads have a church and the ones with 2 churches get 2 names. (All true-E.NC-the fraying, barely-fitting-thru-the last-loop edge of the Babble Belt.
