Mosquitoes Have a Taste for Beer Drinkers   

                                                        A Smithsonian magazine article on mosquito habits reported that “just a 12 ounce bottle of beer could make you more attractive to insects.” Though the reason is still somewhat of a mystery. It was originally believed that the increase of ethanol in sweat or a increase of body temperature may be a cause, but it was latter found out these factors did not correlate to mosquito landings. Yet still, there was a noticeable difference in landings and bites for beer drinkers and non-beer drinkers.

A separate study performed in West Africa however suggest that the beer aroma might influence the bugs. It seemed that mosquitoes preferred the beer aroma over fresh air by a factor of 2-to-1.

In addition to beer, other factors like blood type, metabolism, level of exercise,  pregnancy status, carbon dioxide output, and even your shirt color can influence a mosquito to give you a bite. Type O blood is there favorite along with large body mass, pregnant women, gas, and natural colors contrary to nature like black, deep blue, and red.

So plan your defenses accordingly. Also, though it would be tempting, do not try to get drunk enough so that any mosquitoes will get drunk from drinking your spiked blood. As awesome as that would be, the blood alcohol level you would need to get a Mosquito drunk from a bite would kill you.

Canadian swims back

and forth across Detroit

River after 8 beers

WINDSOR, Ontario, July 24 (UPI) --

A Canadian said he had both pride and regret after swimming

the across Detroit River, and back, after drinking eight beers.

John Morillo, 47, of Windsor, Ontario,

undertook the cross-border challenge from Windsor to Detroit

and back Monday night to show "I could do it."

He also admitted it was "really stupid."


His actions sparked an international rescue effort after a neighbor,

watching the event, lost sight of him after about a half hour,

and called police.

He swam from Windsor to Detroit's Renaissance Center,

left the water, and dove back in for the return trip, he said,

when he noticed the boats and the helicopter, from

Canadian and U.S. agencies, sent to find him.


Just before he arrived back in Canada he was picked up by

Canadian authorities in a boat. Morillo was arrested for intoxication

in a public place, and will likely be cited for swimming in a shipping

channel and fined between $5,000 and $35,000, the

Windsor Star reported Wednesday.


"The [Windsor] harbor master was extremely mad at me,"

Morillo later said. He added he has been barred from city

waterfront property, and his mother told him,

"You're just so stupid" before she hung up on him.

"I apologize for all the people that had to go our looking for me,"

he commented.

Mont. man injured when bridge jumper lands on him


MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) —

A western Montana man floating on an inner tube

suffered broken bones in his legs and torn ligaments

in his knees when another man jumped from a bridge

and landed in his lap.


Andy Hill of Missoula and his wife were floating under

a bridge on the Clark Fork River near East Missoula Sunday

when the man landed on him, KECI-TV ( reported.

"Suddenly I had intense pain and was under water," Hill said.


"There was a guy on my lap and he rolled off my lap and he

just kept apologizing saying 'I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry,'" Hill said.


The man swam Hill to shore, still on the inner tube, and the

man's friend helped Hill as well.

Hill suffered broken bones in both lower legs and a cracked

femur in his left leg and will likely spend the rest

of the summer in a wheelchair or on crutches.

But he's been able to keep his sense of humor.

"Who does this happen to?" asked Hill, laughing.

"I don't know of anybody this has ever happened to."

Missoula County authorities say the man who jumped could be charged.




Boy robs Colo. State Fair in Batman costume

PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) —

A 16-year-old boy wearing a Batman shirt and mask

broke into a building at the Colorado State Fair,

then turned himself in to police after seeing his

likeness on the news.


The Pueblo Chieftain reported that the boy is one of

three accused of breaking into the Fair's VIP building

early Thursday ( ). The trio took televisions,

a laptop and an empty cash register.


The suspects managed to lock themselves in the building

and had to break out.

KRDO-TV aired surveillance video of the suspect dressed

as Batman. After the video aired, the boy turned himself in to police.

Authorities plan to seek charges including burglary and criminal mischief.

The boy wasn't named because of his age. Police were still

seeking the other two suspects.


Girl buys water, spends night in jail

Felony charges were dropped on Thursday against a

20-year-old University of Virginia student who says she

panicked when undercover agents from the state's

Alcohol Beverage Control division mistook her water

purchase for beer.


According to Charlottesville (Va.) Daily Progress, the student,

Elizabeth Daly, was walking to her car on April 11 at

approximately 10:15 p.m. with a box of sparkling water,

cookie dough and ice cream she had just bought from a

local supermarket when the agents—six men and one woman,

all in plainclothes—approached suspecting the box, a blue carton

of LaCroix sparkling water, to be a 12-pack of beer.

One jumped on the hood of her SUV; another pulled out a gun,

Daly said, as her roommates seated inside looked on in horror.


"They were showing unidentifiable badges after they

approached us, but we became frightened, as they were not

in anything close to a uniform," Daly wrote in an account submitted

to the court. "I couldn't put my windows down unless I started my car,

and when I started my car they began yelling to not move the car,

not to start the car. They began trying to break the windows.

My roommates and I were ... terrified."


Daly's roommate in the front passenger seat told her to

"go, go, go"—and that's what she did, apparently "grazing"

two of the agents in the process.


The students called 911 as they left the parking lot, police said,

and were pulled over by another agent driving a vehicle with

lights and sirens, Charlottesville Commonwealth Attorney Dave

Chapman told the paper.


Daly apologized when she realized who they were, Chapman said,

but agents arrested Daly and charged her with two counts of

assaulting a law enforcement officer and one count of eluding

police—each carrying a maximum penalty of five years in prison

and $2,500 in fines. She spent the night in

Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail.


"This has been an extremely trying experience," Daly wrote.

"It is something to this day I cannot understand or believe

has come to this point."

Either can Chapman.

"It wouldn't be the right thing to do to prosecute this," he said.

Nonetheless, Chapman "stood by the agents' decision to file charges,

citing faith in a process that yielded an appropriate resolution."

"You don't know all the facts until you complete the investigation," he said.

Woah There!


Police were stunned when they pulled over an erratic motorist to find he was steering his damaged saloon – with a pair of workshop PLIERS.

The 38-year-old was driving with two blown-out tyres when he was stopped by cops during rush hour on Monday morning.


Amazingly, his car did not have a steering wheel and he was instead controlling the vehicle with a pair of locking pliers clamped around the steering column.


The set of pliers attached to the steering column that the driver was using in his car

The driver was arrested and charged with a huge list of offences including driving while disqualified and under the influence of methyl amphetamine and cannabis.


He was also charged with driving without due care, driving in a dangerous manner, driving while unregistered, uninsured and contrary to defect and breaching his bail conditions.

Police in Adelaide, Southern Australia, believe he was involved in an earlier hit-and-run incident and he was further charged with failing to stop at the scene of a crash.


A statement from South Australia Police said: “While this is an extreme example, police wish to remind all motorists they have a responsibility to drive with due care at all times.

“Operation Distraction, a state-wide focus on driver behaviour, in particular the use of mobile phones while driving and failing to wear seatbelts, continues to run throughout the month of July and more than 1,700 offences have been detected.”


The man appeared in court yesterday and was remanded in custody.
