My boyfriend in college was a biology nut. He took an entomology class senior year, and had to run through the woods with a butterfly net trying to catch as many different species as he could. Then he would put them in a "killing jar". He always got very excited when our female friends screamed because there was a yet undiscovered waterbug in their bathrooms. His final project was a vast collection of his dead insects carefully pinned down in a black box, with the species names pinned on tiny pieces of paper. Thirteen years later, he still proudly displays his collection at parties.
