    Im sitting here minding my own business when someone comes along and jabs a needle in my arm (or so I thought) I look down and its a mossie, I squish the little bugger, and I am not joking, Its massive!!! I measured him cause its unbelievably huge , and he measures 1.3cm with a bloody long needle thingy!

    I have never seen a mossie this big.I have been bitten loads in the past but nothing that felt like this, It felt like I was having a blood test or something, and now my arm aches and theres a bloody huge lump!!:mad:
