I'm not sure. When I was little, my neighbor got it so my mom got anxious and used the "Lice Removal Kit" from Rite Aid on my head to be safe. I remember just sitting in the bathtub and having her using some sort of special shampoo and pulling at my hair (which was really long and always knotted because I didn't like brushing it) with a tiny comb and I was crying the whole time. It hurt and we weren't even positive I had lice in the first place.

I don't care what anyone says, I am not eating BUGS. No bugs. No worms. No... scorpions. And definitely no parasites that feed on the blood of other people. In my culture, bugs are generally not considered a snack, just like monkeys, horses, dogs, cats, rats, mice, and even guinea pigs are not seen as food animals.

I don't even like eating crabs or lobsters, which are like really big bugs. Although sometimes I'll eat a shrimp or two.

And I've heard about how the near future we'll have to eat bugs there won't be anything else to survive on. All the reason I shouldn't eat them NOW. :P

I did just read, however, that head lice are actually harmless and carry diseases, and that they may even help people become more resistant to more dangerous types of body lice. But like that's going to make me want to get head lice. Sometimes I'm even nervous to try on hats when I'm out shopping.

^ I mean they *don't* carry diseases. Why am I always accidentally leaving out words that make things sound the opposite of what I mean? :roll:

I had some when I was 4, and so many times people (mostly classmates) thought I had head lice when I didn't. Some of my classmates assumed I was one of the two people who supposedly had head lice who were mentioned anonymously in a memo to all parents and students saying "Please wash your hair"... but I wasn't one of the two! HA!! !
