Don't bet on that subs my school was built in the mid thirties as a WPA project, by the time I started school in the late sixties there were more vermin than students, I got rather good at winging bats with a textbook so we could stun em and toss em back outside.

They better give out some rabies vaccines (or at least the option to).  It is not uncommon for bats to be carriers of said disease.
/and it has just barely under a 100% mortality rate!  Two (2) people have survived it!  They were put into a coma to do it too.  Great odds.

No, but we had armored cockroaches.  You could hit one with your giant ass English book or back pack and the farker would walk away carrying your book or backpack.  These farkers could take you in a knife fight.

Why the hell are these things protected? They're farking vermin, no better than rats.

Unlike rats, these "vermin' help keep insect population way down. You think the occasional rabies victim is a problem? How about rampant malaria from the mosquito infestation that would surely follow an eradication effort.

Heck, those things are way cuter than rats (at least, feral rats). If that were my school, I'd be setting up no-harm trapping methods, and I'm certain my wife would make me at least have her come visit. We're batfans (if you can tell).

I'd rather a few flying mammals than brazillions of flying arthropods.

I've had experience with those buggers.  Did the ones you had fly?  Mine did.  You'd  stomp on them and they'd just turn around and laugh at you just before then fly through the  air for your throat.

Pfft.  These kids are living in the lap of freakin luxury.  When I was in school, the giant bats were an extra item on the lunch menu, and we would trade other, smaller children for them during recess.  WE had velociraptors roaming free in the hallways, and they were the hall monitors to make sure you got to class on time, or you were torn apart, your screams echoing throughout the shcool, (the raptors had headset microphones to broadcast your screams over the PA system), and the scraps and bones were fed to the bats.  Cycle of life, people.

Kids these days have it too easy.

You remind me of the great roach wars of the 90s in a house I used to live in. No matter how clean we kept it, those bastards were coming out of every crack possible. There we're running battles in the hallways, I became a master shot with shoes and stiff pillows.

Many a roach fell to my marksmanship, and I know their comrades have a contract out me all these years later.

CSB:

I had a flock(?) of bats nesting between the vent and vent screen of my attic. Well some of them got in, and since my attic is level with my bedroom (accessed by doorway) the squeaking was driving me nuts. So I went in there, donned some gloves, opened the attic window, and spent the next 30 minutes catching bats and tossing them out the window. It was a fun chore.

Didn't this happen at a high school in England a few years ago?
Are the teachers at this school always telling the students to eat all that nice greasy fried food?
Are these some of the teachers?

Yeah they are! I've never understood how anyone could be afraid of them. They really are like little flying mice, except even more adorable cuz they FLY. We've got bat boxes not far from our house that the county set up, and so we get them hanging around our house from time to time. My family hears me and my excited little "SQUEEEEEEE!" and knows there's some critter that they don't want to see, but I think is too cute and I'll hug him and love him and pet him and squeeze him and I'll call him George!

Freeport, Texas is not a place you're likely to get malaria.

One of my most vivid horror memories of my childhood was when we found a bat in the basement.  My mom was deathly afraid to go down there, so of course, as a child, I thought it would eat me.  It all came out well in the end when Dad came home from work.  He just grabbed a 2X4 and went down the stairs. I thought I was going to loose my father that very night. 5 long minutes later my Dad comes back up the stairs. "Did you get him!" I asked.  "Naw I just opened the basement door and shooed him out."  Someday I hope to be manly enough to face a blood thirsty flying elder god monster armed only with a 2X4, and gentlemanly enough to shoo it out the back door.

YixilTesiphon: Freeport, Texas is not a place you're likely to get malaria.


From my understanding, if the winters are not cold enough to kill off all mosquitoes. Then there is a possibility for the spread of malaria.  So it isn't possible for a malaria epidemic to last more than 6 months in Minnesota. But in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona... there is nothing stopping it but Bats, bug spray, and the absents of standing water.

per wiki: Treatment after exposure is highly successful in preventing the disease if administered promptly, in general within 10 days of infection

That sounds slightly better than 100% mortality rate

Generally speaking, they eat about half their bodyweight in insects every single night, and spread pollen, primarily for desert plants.  Some plants are pollinated only by bats.

While they can carry rabies, they probably aren't any more susceptible, or more likely as individuals, to be infected than any other wild animal.  It's very, very unlikely that they are actually "chasing people".  It looks like that when they are trying to find an escape route because they have shiatty aerodynamics, and tend to drop down from high corners to get flight speed.  People tend to stand in the middle of the space and then think the bats are attacking.

Bats are our good buddies.

The 100% refers to symptomatic cases.  Once you see symptoms, you're pretty much screwed.  Symptoms can take a long time (6 months or a year IIRC) to show after infection.

actually... I did have to walk uphill both ways to school in the snow one day (there was a hill between my dorm and the school building).

*and* my school once had an angry bat disturb a basketball game I was at...

got anything else subby?

Is it bad that my first thought was an inner city school with some "urban youths" going around with bats and "wilding?"
