Not even trying to be funny, being COMPLETELY serious. All right so today I was getting ready to wash my Greek god body in the shower when all of a sudden I saw a spider just crawling around near the drain. So immediately my face went from to and I killed it instantly by taking tissue paper, beat the spider to death with the tissue paper, and then threw the tissue paper and its lifeless body into the toilet. I dunno why but all of a sudden I felt guilty. No, I'm not a tree hugger who will swerve and hit a tree on the road to avoid hitting the dumb squirrel who tried to cross it (although I would feel EXTREMELY guilty hitting a cute squirrel). But I just thought: "Wow, what a lame way to go for that spider."


Once, for about a millisecond, that was it. Why didn't you just use water and let it go down the drain instead of using TP? That's what I do, unless the critter is to big for the drain..... Do you think it will crawl up the drain ans seek it's revenge?

I only kill insects when they pose some sort of health risk to me...

or when they annoy me, which is usually more frequent.

I don't usually feel bad about it though. Insects are too hard to get rid of without killing them to bother with the extra effort. I still tend to go out of my way to avoid killing insects though, ironically.

yes, except for cockroaches, they need to die.


Why? Roaches are highly evolved.


I can understand roaches are highly evolved but my dilemma with them is the possibilities on the diseases the can have from the areas the have been to. Since there are so many of them it is impossible to tell what one has been where, so to keep myself out of their possibly harmful way I exterminate any that appear in my home.

Never, we humans are at war with insects, there is no room for guilt in war. When I kill bugs I find inside my house, I set their bodies outside near my doorstep so that their insect brethren can see the fate that awaits them should they choose to enter my domain.

No. They annoy me and deserve to die.

If all bugs died, so would we. Natural fact.

Well here's the thing. If I'm lying in my bed and all of a sudden Mr. Cuddlebug wants to snuggle on the side of my leg I have every right to kill that bastard because it's invading my space. Yet if I were walking outside and saw a bug just chillin' and being creepy I wouldn't kill it because that's his space. It's not violating my leg like that last asshole bug, it's just you know...being a bug and stuff, enjoying its day, doing what bugs do.

And that everyone, was philosophy with LosingOrbit.



^ Pretty much my exact sentiments right there. Even if spiders are in my place, as long as they don't come down further than about 2 feet from the ceiling I'll usually let them live. Especially since they help get rid of other bugs that might find their way in, and I don't have to worry about feeling guilty then.
