What a bunch of cruel people you lot are. Pretty sickening really.
Relax, stuff mentioned is in remembrance of cruel childhoods in most cases, as tell me you didn't do your bit in eradicating things smaller than yourself as a child. I remember primary school one summer, there was a craze for magnifying glasses as after dinner so many were outside in the afternoon sun playing death ray with the ants and singeing anything else dark including much of the school paint work.
There's a difference, though, in remembering things that you did as a kid - that were quite cruel, but when you maybe
didn't really know better - or more likely, didn't have mature impulse control, to reliving and redo-ing things you did as a kid, though.
I know insects can be pests, and realise that in plenty of situations may need eradicating - but I can't be the only one feeling a little uncomfortable that some seem to be celebrating and revelling in it.
I'm not about to get all I'm-considerably-more-holier-than-yaaaww about this, but all the same, it does seem a bit, well, uncomfortable to me.
As to you responding like this, well I have to say, as somebody who's defended you, before now, for people maybe picking on you, it does seem a little off - you're not shy about complaining and pointing out that you feel people have been getting at you, but when it's something else that's been pointed at an laughed, there seems something of a climb-down from the lofty heights of your steed.
