All well and good, but how will you be sure the steam got into every nook and cranny?
well that's the good thing about steam that it is a gas right so it should fill every nook and cranny i think? the only disadvantage is you have to make sure there's no open electrical outlets, electrical devices or paper, books or other material that can degrade when it gets wet. which is a problem in my room.

i inspected my bed again this morning. still no sighting of the bugs. but i woke up with three new bites, which could still be mosquito bites. at this point. i either have these bugs or i developed some sort of irrational fear for them. i'm thinking of buying sticky tape and put it all around my bed frame to see what gets trapped.

Yeah but if you think that some of the cracks are at floor level, or even below the floorboards, or just really, really small... You have to wonder if the steam will make it..

mosquito bites everywhere. they came all of a sudden, the last two weeks i reckon. they go for my legs mainly, my ankles are swollen. the wrists are another spot they go for. i'm itching everywhere and sometimes i don't know if it's because of actual bites (which i have) or if half of the itching i feel is just phantom itch.

i got a copy of a scanner darkly and opened it the other day just to read this:

Whether it is mosquitoes or bedbugs you're obviously having an allergic reaction and probably need to get some antibiotics or something.

I knew this dutch skinhead who used to smoke a lot of meth. He went through phase of very matter of factly and lucidly talking about the bug infestation he has in his legs but he was the kind of person people didnt ever really feel like suggesting he was just psychotic.

Get some tiger balm and put a little bit on the bite the moment you feel it. It's magical. Easy to find in an Asian supermarket or health food place. Failing that, rub a raw, cut, clove of garlic on there. Make sure its juicy. Also, when it itches, scratch either side of the itch. It tricks your body and the itching goes away. Way better than scratching directly on the bite which only makes it worse. But this trick will be obsolete once you get some tiger balm or knoblauch.

i like how muser thought this was a delicate, tactful way to gently tell yyaldrin he has drug psychosis

He was a friend when I was living in Vietnam but we lost touch when he moved back to Holland. He was weirdly functional a lot of the time but things got pretty dark, he had a pet monkey which he accidentally killed in some outburst and ended up working for Vietnamese mafia for a while.

He would come out with a lot of crazy stories but it was always hard to tell whether it was just psychosis or not.

that storyline sounds more interesting than some films I've seen.
