    eh??

    I see I will have to teach the uneducated :p

    A midge is a name given to a very small insect that is found in scotland which bites anything that has got blood in it.

    They are very annoying and are the scurge of the scottish tourism.

    The phrase "he missed by a midges baw hair" is very popular in scotland, which leads me to ask how big do you think a midges ball hair is

    I have spoken now learn from my wisdon :D:p

    Can't say I've ever given this serious thought, but 2 atoms sounds about right :p

    I will go for 3 atoms, any more bets?

    Rubbish mate, there is no way that the midges ball hair could be 3 atoms long. If they were 3 atoms long then they wouldnt be able to fly as the weight of the ball hairs would hold them down!

    Its got to be 2 atoms :p

    Do midges even have balls?

    And midges are everywhere, not just Scotland.

    you know, when I think of midges, rather than "how long is their ball hair", i usually think "kill kill kill kill KILL!!!!!!!!!"

    That could just be my weird aversion to little bugs biting into me, putting their saliva into me to thin my blood, and then proceeding to suck the afore-mentioned blood out of me, of course.

    I dont know, mibbe other people like that......

    Researchers "startled" by discovery of Piranha Midges
    Professor Julian Myrtleman of the Australian Centre for Bio-Insectoid Research & Development has announced the discovery of a new type of midge (also known as "gnats" or "sand-flies") "Serrasalmus nattereri-simuliidae".

    The new Loch Ness monsters have already been dubbed "Piranha Midges" and are wreaking havoc around the area. Speaking exclusively to the Inquirer & Inquisitor, Professor Myrtleman said "these little critters form a dense cloud around any large insect or small mammal they come across. They can strip off all its flesh within a few seconds".

    Stories of local campers under attack by midges are nothing new but the Inquirer & Inquisitor understands that reports of attacks by the aerial piranhas are starting to surface. David Gumbalson, on holiday from Iceland siad, "I had just put out my lantern and was retiring to my sleeping bag when I heard a loud buzzing and ripping noise. I opened my tent door and was amazed to see a cloud of yellowish midges consuming the leftovers on my barbeque. It was very scary".

    The Loch Ness Inquirer & Inquisitor understands that Mr. Gumbalson was so badly traumatised by his experience that he had to cut short his holiday and return to Iceland. His GP stated that he had prescribed his patient lithium and 6 months with a Post Traumatic Stress Therapist. Scientific speculation now centers on the origins of the new flesh-ripping superbugs. Professor Myrtleman's assistant, Dr. Sheila Havasmil PhD MrTTy FRjPcc suspects radioactive mutation. "We have already found several previously unrecognised creatures beneath Loch Ness and know that it contains unique radioactive compounds. Critters like the humble midge could quickly evolve or mutate into different entities if they were exposed to such gamma-ray sources. This is an interesting Loch Ness research project."

    The Highlands of Scotland Tourist Board and a government spokesperson was unavailable for comment at time of going to press but 10 Downing Street has acted swiftly to deny that radiation in Loch Ness is caused by leakage from the Dounraey and Windscale Nuclear Facilities.

    OOOOOOOOoooooooooo scary!!!!!!! :eek:

    Standard form time :eek:

    What about weight then? Surely if we knew what the two (???) atoms were off (theres no element called "midge hair" :rolleyes: ), we could use it's relative atomic mass to find it's weight...

    I'm feeling damn clever this evening :D

    I swear midges are Satans insects. They appear to have no use whatsoever, other than to bug the hell out of Scottish people.

    :mad:

    *scratches nasty evil midge bites on his arm*
