jefbot bitten by a tsetse flyEver since I played Raiders of the Lost Ark on the Atari 2600 over at my friend’s house when i was a kid, I’ve been fascinated/terrified of being bitten by tsetse flies. In the game, if you were bitten by these bugs, you would be paralyzed for a few seconds, leaving you vulnerable to attack.

I know this fear is completely irrational as I don’t think there have been any occurrences of sleeping sickness being transmitted by tsetse flies reported in North America, but if you get bitten, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
