Since the bug is dead and the blood's splattered all over your arm, I'd say it belongs to you now.

Well - if the mosquito dies intestate, doesn't it have to go to probate?

Bikingshearer is a two wheeled sheep barber, so I will take his opinion. Notice to that his name can be shortened to BS. Lends even more credence in my book.

Thanks, Siu. As usual, you've got my back. And that's a lot of back to cover . . . .

I always try and put the blood back in me, the red cross calls me all the time about the current blood shortage, so I figure I should keep all of mine that I possibly can.

Normally though, I just end up with a big open knife wound, theres still some trick I haven't figured out yet.

You put "His/Hers" as a poll choice, which I'm taking a guess is referring to the mosquito; except that male mosquitos feed on plant nectar and don't bite people.

If you squished a male mosquito and blood squirted out, it would be his own.

In your case, do not squash the mosquito, eat it.

So...can TdF riders use mosquitos to bank blood for the next long race? What would they do?
Stand in a cage w/ millions of them for 15 minutes and then the night before, place the critter on their arm and squeeze it?

edit: Maybe Tyler wasn't lieing after all...it was french mosquitos

Blood borne pathogens have to travel from body to body without getting air to live, right?

You can't smear mosquito blood on an open wound and catch AIDS, can you? I don't think so.


Blood borne is different that air borne, if I remember correctly...

Next time a mosquito lands on you and starts to drill, try this. Wait until she's good and anchored, and tanking up on your precious red gold. Then, with your thumb and forefinger grab the chunk of skin on either side ot the drilling site and squeeze hard.

>POP<

Mor fun than popping zits, and you get to kill something to boot.
