    There were literally hundreds of thousands of these things flying about on Cut Gate today. If you stopped for a minute there would be 5 or 6 sitting on you. I accidentally swallowed one. Is this the end?

    It would appear Skydrive is rubbish – photo through here

    ichneumon fly on wiki:

    The female finds a host and lays an egg on, near, or inside the host’s body. Upon hatching, the larval ichneumon feeds either externally or internally, killing the host when they themselves are ready to pupate

    Man I’d slit your wrists now…

    Ichneumon flies are harmless to humans and trees, and in fact help to keep many insect pests under control.

    Just balance things from z1ppy. ^^ Taken from ‘Answers’ – so unless you’re a pest, you’ll be fine. πŸ˜‰

    Thanks brakes, I like to add a splash of colour to proceedings

    A pest? Yeah, I could still be in trouble….

    I’d be asking your mum to take you through tying your laces properly again if I were you. Tripping up might make you hurt yourself, innit.
