Two days of mental relaxation, away from the mind numbing crap on the news…….
You ever had that perfect pair of comfortable sneakers that no matter the condition you could not bring yourself to throw them away? It did not matter that they were full of holes or that the sole was coming lose, they were favorites and could not bear to part from them…….have you had this dilemma?
And then there is summer, when ants and those damn biting mosquitoes ruin the outdoors for people……when you spend more time swatting at and scratching at the bugs and their after effects, to enjoy the summer season and NO matter what you try there seems to be NO hiding from this irritating little bastards….
Okay, you are asking what has all this got to do with anything? Right?
Let me share something that I read in the UK’s Guardian…….
Scientists have recreated the powerful whiff of smelly feet to lure mosquitoes into traps and slow the spread of malaria and other lethal diseases.
In field tests in an African village, the pungent aroma attracted four times as many mosquitoes that can carry malaria than were drawn to people sleeping under bed nets in neighbouring homes.
The portable traps were designed to attract and kill mosquitoes in the open air, and so reduce the risk of humans being bitten outside. They will work alongside mosquito sprays and bed nets that are commonly used to protect people indoors.
There you go! All that bitching about your smelly sneakers was for naught! Your smelly feet could be the answer in the control of mosquitoes…..and you thought that those sneakers were just stinking!
