Do you squish it or leave it alone?

I usually start panicking and run out of the room until it's gone or until someone else gets rid of it.

Depends what type of bug. I can't stand moths being around my head so they get turned to pulp as soon as i see them but most other things get left alone

I chose squish it, but I am terrified of bugs. I usually get the vacuum cleaner and suck it up. I had to do that to like 20 stink bugs last week.

Normally I leave them alone but tonight I've had some bugs flying around my computer screen which I have been squishing.

I usually squish it but sometimes I'll have random acts of kindness and just put it outside.
#11
How are this many people on here scared shitless of bugs? Seriously. You run out of the room?
#12

I still voted "Eat it" though.

I usually exclaim how great source of protein the bug is, then i proceed to pick it up and eat it. Depending on the bug, it is sometimes necessary to remove certain body parts of the bug. As this can turn out to be a messy operation, I find it helpful to carry around plastic bag with tissues to clean up after.

Only flies, ticks or mosquitoes.

yes, babies tend to become a blue gooey liquid when kept inside a plastic bottle in the dark for a year.

Capture it in this small plastic cube I have specifically for the purpose, then put it out a window. This is a recent development; up until a few months ago, I'd kill on sight. Still do for particularly large spiders.

Depends on the circumstances/type of bug.

Only if it bugs me I squish it. Other then that I leave them alone.

I had to do that instead of a real lolstack, because the number of lols would exceed the image limit. But dear god

I live in a basement. The spiders were here long before I was.
Quote by BeefWellington

what's the point in being "philiosophical"?

Interesting question...
#29
My own rule of thumb:

If it's in killing distance, kill it.
If it's bigger than my thumb, kill it.
If it looks to have eggs or some kind of young, burn it. (Learned my lesson not to just squish it when I stepped on a spider with eggs. That shit hatched then and there, hundreds of the little bastards.)
If it looks dangerous, kill it.
If it's annoying, kill it.

If it's not in one of those categories it may live.
#30
Usually I am merciful, but If it's in the way I start hitting right next to it so that it runs away, but it is to stupid to I put a book in it's path so that it climbs onto it, in which case I fling it as far away as possible. If that doesn't work I think of the most brootal way of killing it and do it.

Quote by cornmancer
Kill it. Unless it's a big spider in which case I go with the screaming thing.


Ah this.

I kill small/normal spiders at every opportunity. Big spiders involve me shitting my pants.
#34
i get out the pillow, mop, and blanket and i kill anything in sight.
