"When mosquito lands on your testicle, you realize that violence not always the answer..."
We do not negotiate with terrorists!
speak for your self
very true. That's why you don't get naked around mosquitos
I have no problems with skeeters. I use chemical warfare.
On your testicles? Daaaaaamn Falcon, you're tougher than I am
You think that's bad, you should see what he does with nanners.
And THAT is why we warn all New Monkeys, " Do not mess with Falcon15's Nannas". .....
hahaha. Well, gotta admit, when I was in Panama we applied DEET EVERYWHERE. I have never seen that many skeeters. One of our dive sites was a hike thru the jungle to a beautiful cove. But there were clouds of skeeters to work through to get there. But Devil's Beach was worth the trip.
Just don't piss off the monkeys! They fling their poop at you. And worse.
Made the mistake of finding a nice comfortable bed of leaves to rest one night, was rudely evicted that night by a band of monkeys throwing rocks and other objects. Seems it was THEIR comfortable bed, lol. I made my own and got to rest comfortably.
One of our guys got tired of raining poop so he got out an exam glove and threw his own back. It actually shocked them for a few seconds. They even stole a guys pack once.
They are very insistent. But they are also afraid of even blank gunfire. We used a MadDog wine bottle with the finger hole on it to trap moderate sized monkeys. A few peanuts and you were set. tie it to a tree. The little ones couldn't reach the peanuts, the big ones couldn't get their hands in. But the middle ones would reach in, grab the peanuts and refuse to let them go. You could catch them with a rope around their necks. Quite active when you finally got them to let go, and started walking away, but after a couple of hundred yards they would follow like pets. When you got to your bivouac you built your fire, got everything ready, then hand walked down the rope and lopped their head off. If you cooked them well they tasted ok. Goya Adobo also seasoned them up well. Beat C-Rats.
Monkey brains are a delicacy in some cultures. Used to have pork brains when a kid back on the farm--quite tasty---guess that is why I am soooooo smart---lol. Be nice.
Never did the brain thing. Guess that's why I'm not so smart. But being in the field in Panama, we ate a lot of fresh fruit (Mangos, Papaya, that dang bean thing that had the sweet white fuzz on it) but we also shot a wild pig with a blank and a cleaning rod section, ate plenty of monkeys, fish.
My mom came to visit, and it being a few days before payday we had no beef. We had to subsist on what I could catch as a diver. Lobster, King Crab, fish. So when I told her I was sorry we had to eat that in lieu of beef she was amazed. Guess your perspective can get skewed by circumstances. A tank of air cost $1. For two bucks I had two aluminum 80's that gave me plenty of dive time to get a lot of great eats. Beef was much higher.
Devils beach is a beautiful place. I lived in Panama back in the late 70's early 80's. Went there frequently with my family.
I fling bullets does that count as worse?
I was there from '75-'78. Went there single, left there with my first wife and my oldest daughter. I lived at Ft Davis, Atlantic side.
