I love it, I love my naughty little pet.

I’m having elephant weevil withdrawals. Remember how I was saying I should have given him a name and kept him as a pet, well it turns out that maybe I really should have!

flyWhile reading the free mX paper on the train home from work, I came across an interesting article. It explained that even though insects have tiny brains, they may actually be surprisingly smarter than we ever thought. And, get this, they might even have a sense of self!

Oh, my poor little elephant weevil. I could have loved it like a tiny little pet, but oh, I KILLED IT! (well, tossed it outside).

I don’t know about you, but that puts an entirely different spin on the idea of killing bugs. What am I supposed to do now?

AND – that also makes you think about which bugs are actually evil… I vote spiders.

    I second that vote. Mosquitos are a close second.

    insects…sense of self!!! hmmmm, then they must also undergo identity crises !!! i don’t think so ! although many a shrink has behaved like an insect on the matter of the clock: time’s up!
