Oh yah, I can see that.  Malaria is a biatch. What surprised me was that 25000 people die each year from rabies.  Where is that happening?
 
2014-07-16 07:42:16 AM
The answer is always (C).  This is Fark.  I DON'T CARE WHAT THE ARTICLE SAID, THE ANSWER IS (C)!!

In the NE US, the most dangerous animal is the white-tailed deer.

Isn't malaria the deadliest animal?  Isn't bacteria an animal?

No, not an animal because their cells do not contain a nucleus.
Bacteria was once classified as a plant (!) I don't remember the reasoning.

this is news? i thought this was commonly accepted. also, i don't believe you need the modifier "most" in that sentence, submitter. if it's the deadliest, it's already the "most" deadliest.

It's not really fair to say the mosquito is deadly since it doesn't directly kill anyone. It's the diseases carried by the mosquitoes that kill you, not the mosquitoes themselves. I'd much rather be locked in a room (or an aquarium in the case of the shark) with a mosquito than any of the other animals you listed.
 
2014-07-16 08:43:19 AM
If  door #1 had one Great White Shark, door #2 had one Polar Bear, door #3 had one Tiger (any type) and door #4 had one  malaria laden mosquito Imma gonna pick door #4 all day every day.

If it were 1,000 malaria laden mosquitoes I might change my mind but that's not what subby asked...

The internet just told me it's Asia and Africa, for depressing reasons.

...the average cost of rabies post-exposure prophylaxis after contact with a suspected rabid animal is US$ 40 in Africa and US$ 49 in Asia, where the average daily income is about US$ 1-2 per person.

Which, the asshats who insist that DDT is a life-saving potion of health, and that mosquitos are worse than collapse of entire ecosystems?

Or the clowns who say that any use of insecticides ever is an abomination and should be a capital offence?

"Mosquito's a clever little bastard. You can track him for days and days until you really get to know him like a friend. He knows you're there and you know he's there. It's a game of wits: first you hate him, then you respect him, then you kill him."

There's nothing more dangerous than a wounded mosquito.

The missus and I have started using 100% catnip oil as a repellent. Works very well, at least as well as Off! spray.
It doesn't have a strong or foul odor, though apparently if you have cats it drives them apeshiz.

And I've been told that the female of the species is more deadlier than the male.

Chris Ween: Isn't malaria the deadliest animal?  Isn't bacteria an animal?


It's actually a parasitic protozoan, not a bacteria.

But FWIW, I think the mosquito wins the prize because it spreads all kinds of diseases, not just malaria. Other fun things that come from mosquitoes include:

Chikungunya
Dog Heartworm
Dengue
Yellow Fever
Eastern Equine Encephalitis
St. Louis Encephalitis
LaCrosse Encephalitis
Western Equine Encephalitis
West Nile Virus

If there were ever an animal worth hating, the mosquito is it.

People who use terrible grammar and spelling, I'd say. God, I hate those idiots. I'm constantly having to correct them; constantly trying to help them not look like such moronic wastes of life in the future. Unfortunately, most of them don't care to even try and improve. It's sad, really, how much pride some people take in their inability to properly perform simple tasks.

All mosquitoes need to be destroyed. Screw the food chain. Nature can take another hit for the team.

Do it. Kill all of them. Wipe them out, entirely. Don't leave any for "research" purposes. Geno/insecticide. Destroy all of them. ALL OF THEM. Not "some of them" as a "message" to the others. ALL OF THEM!!!

If there's one thing humans are good at, its killing off other species. For once, can we PLEASE use this power for this one, actually noble, purpose?

Do it. Do it now.
