So this is kind of interesting.

After every shift change here at the TV station, the engineering department generates a report outlining the major events of the shift. This is both routine things like remotes and maintenance performed as well as emergency calls, equipment malfunctions, etc.

The Sunday evening report included one item which, to be honest, I actually laughed out loud when I read:
Other Technical Problems: Audio operator apparently passed out due to medical problems just prior to the show and there was no audio for about a minute until yelling from the control room roused him. I was escorting a Time Warner Cable technician into the building for a data circuit repair when this was happening. After the show the audio op went to a hospital emergency room and was replaced for the 10 pm show.

Anyone know where I can get some White carbon fiber?

I'm thinking it's some sort of new drug the way people are asking for it.

instant upload and white carbon fiber in one shot.

incidentally, it's very hard to get a photo of the back of your own phone without a mirror.

Any of you ever owned an MKII MR2? It's been one of my favorite cars since high school, and I've got a huge itch. Unfortunately I have only seen a handful in acceptable condition around here. If you have owned one, what was your opinion of the car?

Oh ****. Check your dry goods often. Was in the pantry earlier and just happened to look at a bag of flour really close and noticed movement... ******* flour mites, EVERYWHERE! In every bag of flour, corn meal, instant potato, pancake batter, fish fry batter, ect in the pantry. Now I have the fun task tomorrow of a thorough pantry cleaning. Better get them all, or they will be back as soon as I put new stuff in there. I hear bay leaves and orange oil works at killing them or keeping them away.

They would have to have really good seals. Not even plastic zipper bags work, they can chew pinholes all in the bags. These little ******* are so tiny. Like slow moving specs of dust. I barely noticed them. I wonder how many tens or hundreds of thousands of these little ******* I've eaten recently. Maybe millions.

Permethrins work better than silly vaginal (stupid hippie) solutions like leaves and crap. Man up and kill some ****. Permethrins are synthetic pyrethroids derived from natural chemicals in chrysanthemums.

Maybe so. I'll give it a shot. Maybe it won't make me sick, being around all of my food.

Well, they are still poisons. I wouldn't put them in your food.

You need to throw everything you already have away.

But you can get some Cyper WP, mix it up in a pump sprayer and spray it on the shelves and around windows, doors, baseboards, and in cabinetry. WP stands for wetable powder. It stays where you spray it for years until bugs walk through it and pick it up and die. It is what the pest control guys use in homes and offices. You don't want to put it on your dishes or in your pet's water bowl, but it is not "dangerous" to people unless purposefully digested.

permethrins may be neurotoxins to some mammals (possibly humans). just be aware of that. especially cats.

even the treated clothing may still have toxic effects even if the mfgrs swear up and down that once it's "dry" it's safe.

I'm going to assume it is localized to the pantry, so it's not that big of an area to work on. These things are so small, even walking from one side of a shelf to the other (maybe 3') would probably be like 500 miles for us. I might just do a good old soap and water wiping of all of the shelves with a little bleach. Surely bleach would kill these things, and would probably have some form of lasting effect on them. Not real fond of the poison idea, of any kind. Anywhere else and I'd be using the strongest stuff available (I like killing bugs!) but not around food.

Does diatomaceous earth kill flour mites? It's food safe.
