    Cool, I got in fast enough to make the obvious joke.


    Beer consumption increases human attractiveness to humans too! Eh? Eh? Right? (If this were delivered in person, I'd be elbowing somebody in the ribs right now.)

    yea it was posted in old forums 2 years ago. In you live here in Florida (anywhere in the South really) you do 1 or of 2 things. You learn when to go outside, and you learn to use allot of OFF. Some that smoke allot claim it helps.
    Them bugs bite me with or without beer, so its either spray or stay in the Florida room or the house. Its funny in Florida the natives know to go outside in our so called winter. Windy places help allot AKA the beach/salt water...

    we buy cases of OFF. WE like to go outside allot. Also we more worried about West Nile than malaria. I had shots and pills for malaria, heck I cannot remember the last time I heard anyone getting that here, but WND, bad news.

    Weird. All my life mosquitos have torn my ass up, then when I started drinking IPAs and DIPAs a few years ago, they seemed to leave me alone. I thought it may have been the hop aroma coming out in my sweat and keeping them away.

    Works both ways. I don't know about the rest of you but after a few beers I find mosquitos incredibly attractive.
