    Default GG mosquitoes

    Lasers baby, lasers.
    "In the Cold War the so-called 'Star Wars defense system' proposed using lasers to destroy incoming Soviet missiles. In a 2007 brainstorming session aimed at combating malaria, Dr. Lowell Wood, the architect of that system, proposed modifying his original idea to kill mosquitoes. The cover of today's Wall Street Journal contains an article that highlights this initiative as well as a few others, like using a giant flashlight to disrupt mosquitoes' vision and using the insects to vaccinate, in the war against malaria. The system is intelligent enough to avoid noncombatants like humans and butterflies and can even tell the difference between females, the blood-drinkers, and males.

    Lazors?
    I hope they're going to aim for the head,
    cause there's nothing more dangerous than a wounded mosquito.

    This has epic written all over it. Just imagine watching a swarm of mosquitos being taken out by rapid-fire laser shots.

    The most important question of all for the killing kind: Where are these things going to be implemented if they are produced? I don't see portable laser defenses for your home coming out anytime soon.

    ... it's not a high powered laser, it's taking the starwars ICBM tracking system and hooking it up to, say, class 3B green laser.

    The more appropriate question is, how do you explain all the live unicorns?

    It's obviously the result of god's wrath against such unnatural creatures, and has nothing at all to do with tests of magical resistance to burninating. Nothing at all to do with that suspension of thermite in accelerant.
