Humans do the darndest things...

I debated whether or not to post this. Perhaps it's a bit risque. But I figured, since we've been learning about sexual behavior and patterns of insects, and since one of our new orders this week was Phthiraptera, I might as well go for it.

There is a website called and it offers just that. You can order a vial of lice for the purpose of getting revenge on your ex by setting them loose on their bedsheets or underwear drawers. Although, really, you could get revenge on anyone this way. Those little guys don't discriminate.
I just found it entertaining to compare the sexual behavior of insects, which is completely driven by procreation, and that of our own species, often driven by...let's go with, pride.
