Two ScIn posts…

…afore I forget.

1) Where does all the blood go in engorged mosquitoes?

2) How do you–yes, you!–use an abacus?

the majority of the blood is water, so it probably evaporates out of the mosquito or is used. the non-water part is used by the mosquito to make more mosquitoes/mosquiti. just think about how much energy is required to beat those wings. what isn't water is blood cells and platelets (protein and more protein).
