From a November 2003 article in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, on the fatal transmission of Rocky Mountain spotted fever from two dogs to their owner: "One man in Mississippi contracted Rocky Mountain spotted fever when he killed ticks he had removed from his dog by biting them with his teeth. This may seem unusual," the veterinarian-authors wrote, "but we have since encountered other persons who claimed to kill ticks by biting them." (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 11-15-03)

Btw, a guy in Poland was just bitten to death by a sexually aroused horse.
Why is it men who die in these peculiar ways?

Well, ticks are hard to squish. When I lived in tick country, after I yanked them out of Murphy or Tor, I ground them twixt my thumbnails.

i put them in a jar of rubbing alcohol. ain't no way i'm squishing something Unholy with my bare hands (or
fingernails). it's sure to come back 99x bigger and kill me in my sleep.

Apparently, you're not supposed to do that either. I'm a reformed thumbnail squisher. I just grind 'em underfoot or use a stone to squish 'em.

Wouldn't have done you any good to have known me back then, Matt. I knew just as much about Lyme ticks and Lyme disease as I did about rocket science.
