What have *you* killed that makes your life better ?
What has that to do with the price of fish?

My personal pleasures have resulted in the deaths of lots of creatures, just as yours have.

I don't see how either of us is different from the OP.

Do you fry your flies after you batter them?

Tom
After ripping five sets of butterfly bench presses my joints are battered

I'm gonna fry few flies and intake or inject a good dose of carbs

There are other solutions. Non lethal. It's a test of your tolerance as to how you handle the situation. Live in a tropical climate, killing them is futile and a waste of time, learn to live with them and your life becomes so much easier.

A personal lesson and success story...drink rum, loads of rum. Be happy, be mosquito free. Live with mosquitos, and they are no longer a hassle. Try to kill them, let them get to you, and they win.
I'll wack anything that happens to try to bite me and keeps making noise in the middle of the night. Just too bad that the mosquito happens to get squashed by that My opinion is that I'm making the world a safer place by taking care of a potential source of sickness And I'm pretty sure I'm the one who wins as I get to live

To be fair though since I've bought an anti mosquito thing for the bed room I haven't had any problems with them.

Umm, don't like mossies - I am a mosquito magnet. However, I do not kill them personally but have a plug-in device that deters them.
We've a lot of bats around here, so they aren't a problem, though it's annoying when the bats come in the house.

Yes, it would be. I'm not sure what would be worse - a mossie or a bat flying around your head at night

The difference is awareness, willingness to accept what is wrong and a mind shift to avoid repeating past transgressions.

What's worse is when the bats pee in your bed!

The cats like catching them as well.

So you drink black tea, wear espadrilles and eat nut roast, then?

Not yet, am just a beginner. But aiming for the right way.

Nothing wrong with milk in your tea though.

Espadrilles are unforgiveable.

I'm sure the calves which were slaughtered in order to bring the milk to my fridge would disagree.

Compared to them, a few bugs pinned to a bit of cardboard are hardly worth a mention.
