You honestly believe that people that swat mosquitoes, or kill spiders enjoy killing? Wayyyyyyyy too far on the "left" buddy, come back to the centre a little. Have we reached that stage now, where killing an insect is somehow indicative of homicidal tendencies. You crack me up, I guarantee you have  killed an insect at some point.

No animal will ever be harmed. Thought I explained it thoroughly.

I draw the line with ticks & mosquitoes.

Without insects we would not exist. Diseases are a product of humans and environmental conditions. They simply feed and carry the product.

Malaria is caused by humans, then fixed by humans in certain areas with DDT. Could go on and on about the stages of parasites and viruses but not enough time in the day. Insects are not the bad guys.

Btw, spiders are one of the cleanest insects on earth. Some will inject venom if you disturb them but hand you disease? Ummm no.

...One thing to remember is that insects are the ultimate barometer of human existence and error. Black Plague was a perfect example of this.

Rats caught most of the blame.

I never said spiders cause disease at all. I said I kill every spider I see. Got a nasty reaction from spider yrs ago, I dislike them. I don't like any bugs on me. I did say insects are responsible for transmitting a variety of diseases. I never said spiders or butterflies started the Plague. You ever fished before, rigged a worm for Bass fishing? It kills the worm, doesn't make anglers killing machines.

Insects can be nasty because they have either venom or poison to deliver without reason other than defense. I'm not an insect lover but facts are facts. If you can name ONE disease in the history of human existence I will wear a KC Royals hat for a week. Transmitting does not count.

If an animal is killed and left for dead without insects to finish the feast, guess what. We all (humans) die.

Bugs clean up all of the dead and rotting things on the planet. Sometimes we get in the way of their quest to survive.

Why wouldn't transmitting count? That's how the disease is spread, you can't just discount the entire point of my argument and have me pull an example out of my behind. You guys gently cup the insects, you come across and set them "free", I will continue to swat, slap, stomp and kill them. 

You cannot deny there are diseases on this planet that are transmitted by insects. You've stated as much.Those in this thread you included, that claim they don't even harm insects, let alone dogs, are not being truthful. Do you expect anyone to believe you don't kill insects? Because I admit as much I enjoy killing? That is PC taken to a new low. Have you ever killed an insect?

Not disputing insect killing, who cares. Your reasoning is my question. Every living thing on the planet is a potential transmittor of a lethal virus or parasite.

It is the origination and birth of those two that baffles scientists. Once we figure that out we'll understand the universe.

My indifference to the killing of insects is the entire point of my previous post. When I read four or five posters claiming they don't even kill insects I said...Glad you guys weren't around during the Black Plague, (because I could picture you guys cupping fleas in your hand and "releasing" them into the wild). I was surprised at the number of posters claiming they don't harm insects, which we both know is load. I then rhymed off a bunch of insects and creatures I have no issues with "killing" spiders, mosquitoes, worms and so on. Then you and some other poster suggested that I was claiming spiders, worms and butterflies were responsible for the spread of diseases such as the Plague. Someone else chimed in that I "enjoy killing". I don't kill them because they have the potential to transmit disease, I kill them when they land on me. I don't go looking for insects to kill, but if a mosquito lands on my cheek I'm not going to ignore it. Those who claim they do are probably not being completely honest. Not sure how my post got misconstrued to this extent but hope this clarifies it.

Understood hockey. Good post and I agree.

I'm a dog killer according to the entire place so what foundation do I have.

Cheers

Yeh I saw all those comments, I wasn't sure where you were going with the thread title, but it was clear to me that you had no intention of killing any dogs.

Thanks - I explained it 3x but it's covers. I know quite a few in here personally and they laugh - subject isn't even brought up. 

Text in a gambling forum is communication at it's finest.

You need to be more specific.

Are we talking a hot dog here, a Dog the Bounty Hunter, a live dog, a dogfish pale ale????

I'll send you some loot over paypal if you kill Dog the Bounty Hunter.

I agree but there's one creature that has no business on the planet.

Iricanji.(cousin of the box jellyfish)

It lives in Australian waters and is virtually invisible to the naked eye. It will put a grown man in the ER for a solid week with just a scratch.Full blown sting and you're dead in 25 minutes.

Australians have nets up on the beaches when box jelly season is in full swing. Iricanji goes right though them.

Here's a clip of two researchers in full dive gear collecting samples. They were merely 'scatched' on the face wearing full wetsuits.

This worthless beast even has a delayed venom that the victim will not feel until 10 minutes, then you go into cardiac arrest.

nasty

What do ya want to know Spit?

I sensed the friggin girl that is psychotic upstairs was in to my handle on Covers. I set the bait and I was correct.

Handed her the printout of the thread and told her that cyber stalking is not normal behavior. Whole thread was a hoax to draw you out. She winced and walked off. I spoke with the owner of the property who is a dear friend and she asked me if I would like to have her evicted month's end.

I declined and said no, let her lease run out in May and she's gone. No more trouble.

  I just showed this post to my wife who earlier today accused me of being "over the top" because I kept stopping every few feet when mowing the lawn to let scrambling grasshoppers and crickets get safely out of my way.
