They love buzzing people more than they love sex. That's just how they insure more generations of flies will harass people.

2004.

If I ever go all PTSD on people, I'll be the guy running around a department store with flyswatters.

In "Three's a Company," Janet slapped Jack and said "Fly!" and Jack pretended to strangle her and said "Catapillar!"

Can anyone definitively prove there wasn't a fly [or catapillar] on them?

At Christmas dinner in the 1980s, my mother was walking behind my grandmother with a bowl of food when she spotted a fly on Gramaw's head. She swatted it and looked around the table with a shocked look on her face and said "It's Okay if there is a fly". Best Christmas dinner ever.

The electric fly swatter is a bust. It's two metal meshes with a plastic separator. It might work for gnats, but the flies just bounce off if they can't dodge it.

Not for the company that sold it! Send them back a jar of live flies?

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
