something weirder than Catching insects with beer
Back in the middle ages when I was a graduate student, folks working in a nearby
lab were studying what attracts blackflies to humans. They had some scents that they
wished to test as attractants and wanted to cover the vials with something with a
consistency similar to human skin. Every week they would drive to the nearest
pharmacy (they were working in a moderately remote location) and ask for a gross
of condoms, for which they requested a receipt.

When someone successfully fills a requisition with their agency for enough beer, schnapps or rum to do a full seasons bee inventory, let me know how you did it. My supervisor will just laugh at me.
