I'll take them. There are so many mosquitoes at this new house that my son can't even go outside.

Bats would probably be a lot more power efficient than a garrison of bug zappers.

I also heard that bats eat Mosquitoes, but don't believe it. Most mosquitoes are very small, too small for bats to care about. Probably even too small to be able to catch. They seem to go after larger insects like Chinese beetles or moths.

Ah but bug-zappers provide plenty of good'ol redneck entertainment.

If you want some real backyard entertainment, watch when the neighbors bring their young children outside to catch fireflies during a bat swarm. You see happy five year old kids running up to catch a flashing firefly when SWOOSH, a bat flies right in front of them and snatches the firefly inches from their hands. The kid lets out a scream, and the parents act like there are vampires in the neighborhood and evacuate all their children back into the house. I saw this happen once to a family next door, then a couple of days later another family had a barbecue with children and I decided to watch to see if it would happen again. And sure enough, a bat encounter happened after only a few minutes of the firefly hunt.

Probably the best entertainment would be if a bat got tangled in the hair of one of the neighborhood women, but it turns out that is just a myth. Bats are good at avoiding collisions, and the only time one would land in someone's hair would be if it had rabies. Just like when this happened:

There is going to be a new episode of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe this year.

It debuts at Comic Con.

Not a remake, not a reboot. A continuation of the original Filmation series.

I can't even process this level of cheesy awesomeness.

I hope He-Man is a woman. Just to blow peoples' minds.

I think sometimes you need to express gratefulness. That being said, I'm very grateful for all the cool people and good friends on this forum. Even if we don't always agree on some things, I am lucky to call so many of you friends.

You can see why on another thread but I'm making a concerted effort to be a better friend and let people know I appreciate them now as well  :)

So, I moved in with my lover. I had a job. He promised to get a job. Then I told him he could get just a part-time job so he could still focus on building his business. Somehow he got the idea into his head that him and are lovers but not in love and he thinks of me more as casual sex right now (while we get to know each other) but he thinks does not have to get a job and that the last 7 months of rent are going to be forgiven because he is going to do contractor work when I buy my house. Work that I will ALSO be paying him for.


So yea, I am being used. I get it. I told him to get a job and today he is looking at jobs that also offer a place to live. I guess that shows how much I ever meant to him.

Pray.For. Mojo. Seriously though, I need this asshole gone.

I keep forgetting how complex relationships can be. I'm very sorry Anais. :(

Anais' freinds during work hours: You need to get rid of that boy.

Same friends after work hours after Anais says she is lonely and misses the man sitting out in the living room: *crickets*
