What good are wood ticks?
A wood tick fell onto my arm from the driver's side sun visor in my car on the way home from work. I hate wood ticks. I don't really understand why they were invented, either as part of God's plan or Darwin's. There are creatures that fit nicely into either of these; some of them...
