    crawly things get put outside because i can't bring myself to kill them for just walking around but mosquitoes that want to eat me can die.
    There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.

    Squash it mercilessly. And, to those concerned for the ecosystem - it's a freaking bug. There are 3 x 10^12 times more insects on this planet than there are human beings; the world isn't gonna miss one less.

    That's probably the mentality that eventually brings about environmental disasters.

    it has nothing to do with the eco system or how many there are...it seems unjustified...i once put a spider in the toilet and flushed him and i felt bad. :/

    It would be pretty cool if you could shoo a mosquito outside.

    One bug isn't the same as five hundred tigers.

    Well, yeah, but my comment wasn't directed at you. It was more for the benefit of people who think killing a mosquito will destabilize the environment or someshit (like InsatiableCuriosity for example).

    Yeah I get what that's like. Like, you know that a comment wasn't directed at you, but you kinda feel like it was and you answer anyway; right?
