Don't worry, when the horse flies and deer flies come after you, you'll forget all about those pansy 'skeeters, and you'll quickly devolve into a twitching, spastic madman running through the woods until you step on one of any number of poisonous snakes just waiting to take their anger out on humanity. If you get really luckily, you'll come across a nice, pissed-off boar who'd happily put you on your arse and gore you a few times.

Very satisfied, would zap again.

My friend has one of those. He got hammered and started running around hitting people in the nuts with it. Good God, that was painful...

FunkOut: Well, there's still citrus fruit I guess.

Funny you mention that. My tenet about where I'll live is :  ' If they can grow apples and tap maple trees I won't live there'. I am glad others will though.

The fact that there are mosquitoes here is not news.

I've got scars on my legs because of these farkers.

Normal Mosquito: "Oh, he has on a light cotton shirt. Guess I'll have to go elsewhere for my snack since I'll never get through that."

These Farkers: "He has on heavy denim jeans, socks, and leather boots.... I'm gonna get through all that or die trying! BONZAI!!!"

We're all going to die because there's a native Florida mosquito that comes in huge swarms of one, doesn't carry any diseases, and eats the larvae of the mosquitoes that do!
