I shoot you dead.

Yesterday, I worked all morning cutting down tall weeds and grass at a site that Habitat will be opening in fall. At the end of the day, myself and my supervisor working with me tick checked each other. It's deer tick nymph season in western Mass, and these critters are the most common vectors for lyme disease and other nasty shit. Four were picked off of me. Later during the day, I found another on me and picked it off. These fuckers are barely the size of a poppy seed, so they are not easy to find, especially when you have a lot of other thorns, twigs, and debris on you that they can blend in with.

Today, it was sweltering hot in the office despite our air conditioner. I rolled my sleeves and while rolling up my left, I saw something under my armpit. Twisted around to try and see it and I realized it was a goddamn deer tick. Couldn't see it too well, so I went to the bathroom with a pair of tweezers to get a better look in the mirror; suspicion confirmed. I start trying to remove the bastard and a woman comes into the bathroom and asks me what I'm doing. I tell her I have a deer tick in my armpit. She tells me to let it be...after all, the tick is natural and doing what comes naturally, so it can't hurt me. Also, lyme disease doesn't exist. She uses the toilet and when she's done, I'm still trying to get the bastard out. She doesn't wash her hands before leaving. When I finally got it out and went into the hallway, she was removing her shoes to enter a Pilates studio that advertises all kinds of health/consciousness woo.

TL; DR version

Ticks are harmless and lyme disease doesn't exist according to a random person I met today.

My favourite all natural stuff is the all natural stuff Bill posted about here:</p>

I think a lot of these all natural people not only toke on this stuff, but when they talk they emit it as well.
