Wanna turn a tough guy into mush?

Lots of food, lots of sex.

So I should go back to watching Dr Who instead of Torchwood then?

Time flies like an arrow, and fruit flies like a banana...

I don't speak to my mother after the whole "ripping me off for $50,000" thing and she doesn't have a basement.  Am I doubly farked, subby?

What If you live in your mom's basement, (which is a seperate suite), with your incredibly hot girlfriend whom has an abnormally high libido?

Yet the little bastards multiply like crazy and can eat anything. I have a small apartment so even one fruitfly becomes a nusiance.

What if you expect no sex but live in your own basement?

As I learned from having little counterspace, if you keep your fruit and veggies in the fridge, the fruit flies won't hatch.

I get fruit flies every now and then and they're the biggest nuisance bug there is, tried every kind of bug spray and those fly paper strips to no avail. Finally found a way to get rid of them quick and easy and it works like a charm.

Fill a cup half full with beer and cover the top of the cup with saran wrap and hold it in place with a rubber band. Use a toothpick to poke 2-3 holes in the saran wrap and place it on the counter near where they are. By the next day all the fruit flies will be in the cup, mostly dead. Repeat with fresh cup of beer if need for another day.

Seems complicated. Just get the vacuum cleaner and suck them up. They don't seem to have any sense of hearing for the kind of sounds a vacuum cleaner makes.

If you're watching Torchwood, you're just going to die from the depression.

/and the really bad writing.
/Not for Children of Earth, but that's depressing too.

It would have set the stage for an incredibly trolltastic thread.

They really are nice flies too, but none of the girl flies seem to notice and friend zone them.

This leads to them being bitter and committing suicide.
