There are a lot of creatures, both great and small, that can cause you harm. Some are mean and really want to hurt you, others hurt you by accident, and some have to use you for food. Let me take these in reverse order. Bacteria, viruses, mosquitoes, and in some cases large creatures like killer whales, big cats, bears, alligators, and I have heard of a python eating a small child, can and will eat you. There are microbes of all kinds trying to devour you right now. We just can't escape the danger, but most of us just ignore it. Except when it comes to huge, exotic creatures; they seem to scare us the most and they are usually the least of your worries. When you go to bed tonight the chance of being eaten by a huge predator is almost nil, but the chance of being feasted on by very small (some unseen) predators is quite high. In fact, it is guaranteed.
I suppose that you think that your vehicle is immune from these predators. Well, you are wrong. Down in Florida the vultures are attacking vehicles and eating all the rubber weather stripping off any that they can find. Now, I know some of us drive old vehicles, but this is getting ridiculous! Buzzards and vultures following our vehicles around waiting to attack while they are sleeping. Really bad!!! Don't believe me? Here is a link to the news article: http://www.wildflorida.com/articles/Vultures_attack_cars_in_Florida.php OK, stay away from those car eating vultures and look up every now and then to see if any are following you. I got real nervous the other day when there were so many vultures in one of my dead trees that I thought they would make the limbs fall off, and they were all LOOKING AT ME!!!! Well, they left the next day, so now you all have to worry about them coming to your house (grin). Now have a great day, you hear?
