Ticks, mosquitoes, botflies, and guinea worms are proof God hates us and wants us to suffer horribly.

he is right that trying to harvest ticks from chimps would be problematic. one wonders however if others (and how many) have had ticks in their noses and just not noticed.

He then sent it off to have its DNA sequenced and compared it with the archives in the U.S. National Tick Collection at Georgia Southern University (home to the largest tick collection in the world).

I don't know if anyone else has had a chance to party with these guys, but let me tell you...

As someone who has partied with those guys, they prefer their beer out of a mason jar.  All that needs to be said.

It was, but I can't resist the Robin Hood line. Just can't. It's a neurological defect, and I admit that.

A real man would have used a real torch and finished the little rascal off with a bowie knife.   And don't think the women wouldn't notice.

I am disappointed they didn't choose a tick as their school mascot. Go go GSU Parasites!

"When you first realize you have a tick up your nose, it takes a lot of willpower not to claw your face off"
