    I was studying away at the library when all of sudden I had this pricking sensation on my arm. Upon investigating I found a mosquito merrily drinking away my blood :unimpressed:

    So I carefully plucked it off my arm using my thumb and forefinger and managed to break off what biologists would call it's Proboscis(the thing it uses to suck blood). Was what I did cruel considering the fact that it was half full of my own blood? :hmmmm:

    Whoa wait!! The whole purpose of carefully plucking it off was to make sure it didn't die, and then break of it's Proboscis so that it'd suffer. I don't know how I'd classify as kind and thoughtful in that case :unimpressed:

    It's eat or be eaten!! Jk, but in all seriousness you don't need to feel bad, in a perfect world you'd be able to get them to leave you alone without hurting them but at the end of the day, you need to look out for yourself lol

    Ok yes then that's a lil bit ****ed up. It was just trying to eat at the end of the day. Sure, kill it, but do it quickly.

    Most people just kill mosquitoes that they see on their arms, so it wasn't cruel of you to remove the proboscis. Although it will die soon since you removed the only way it feeds haha
