    Human 1: nature 0

    I was watching this wasp fly around one of my windows (in between the closed window and a screen) for the entire morning. I kept wondering how i would deal with it but put it off as the window was closed.

    Well, it seems it wasn't closed enough because before i knew it he had flown his way right inside my little apartment. My apartment is small and i have two cats, so i didn't want him roaming around. He flew at me and i knocked him to the ground with a book...like a ninja i reacted.

    Then i did what any individual would when next to you is sitting a can of WD-40 and a box of matches.

    I quickly sprayed the ******* with the WD-40. This pissed him off real good, and probably wasn't too good for his health. It also glued him to the ground a bit. With a swift ninja like action i lit a match, and lit a stream of WD-40 in his direction.

    It's funny how quickly something like a coated in WD-40 wasp will light up if given proper ignition.

    Anyone want some fried wasp?

    It's not as flammable as you think. Those aromatic sprays are more so, in fact. Believe it or not, i also had the foresight to make sure a pillow was next to me on the couch...you know, just incase of a wasp fire explosion or something.

    You say that like it is a bad thing or something.

    Do you have any idea how overpopulated the world would be without serial killers? Hint: Slightly more!

    I am sitting here thinking what a crazy thing to do with the whole homemade blowtorch to kill an insect in the house bit, but another part of me is thinking, what the heck would MERTON have concocted and subsequently constructed to deal with this dilemma?


    Thank you. Now I feel normal.

    Nice carbon footprint you've got going on there but maybe next time ... you might try a rubber heel.

    fill the house with acetylene and throw a match...that'll teach the bug not to come into your house.

    Raise a colony of ants in his sand-filled walls, and let them do battle with the wasp.

    I can see it now: Yosemite Sam, aiming at a mosquito, and blowing a 1,000 holes in the walls of his cabin with a shotgun until the roof caves in.

    Have you thought about putting a bowl of liquid hydrogen next to miscreant and flicking matches at it from a safe distance?

    I'm such a hippy, I try to avoid killing insects. I had a couple of hornets building a nest in my apartment once, so when they left to get more building material, I grabbed their nest and chucked it out the window. I had to do it two more times, but then they never came back
