"It's amazing to watch them feed. They really do not like crawling on human skin."

"They crawl around on fabric to find some skin, then extend their rostrum to feed. That's one reason why people do not feel the feeding. They prefer not to crawl on you."

Thanks, bedbugs.

Good survival strategy. The countermeasure seems obvious.

Sleep naked... and somehow float above the sheets.

Who is to blame for these damn bed bugs? I have not even seen one yet, but they are apparently epidemic. And they are freaking all of us out. I could be over run at any time, like Willard or something.

I'm on a trip for work next week, and bedbugs is one thing I've pondered. Guess I could just leave my luggage in the back yard for a while if they've infested the Sheraton. Freeze the suckers.

Best comment on the article, "I didn't know bedbugs were so uppity."

The earliest designs were preotwuq simple affairs, often mere "Roger Vivier " of leather to protect the feet from rocks, debris, and cold. Since vivier shoes use more leather than sandals, their use was more common in cold climates. By the Middle Ages, turn-vivier shoes had been developed with toggled flaps or drawstrings to tighten the leather around the foot for a better fit. As Europe gained in wealth and power, fancy roger vivier heels became status symbols. Toes became long and pointed, often to ridiculous proportions. Artisans created unique footwear for rich patrons, and new styles developed. Eventually the modern roger vivier flats , with a sewn-on sole, was devised. Since the 17th century, most leather roger vivier pumps have used a sewn-on sole. This remains the standard for finer-quality dress vivier shoes today. Until around 1800, vivier shoes were made without differentiation for the left or right foot. Such roger vivier sale are now referred to as "straights".[citation needed] Only gradually did the modern foot-specific vivier shoes become standard.Since the mid-20th Century, advances in rubber, plastics, synthetic cloth, and industrial adhesives have allowed manufacturers to create roger vivier chaussures that stray considerably from traditional crafting techniques.
