Apparently the biting flies(black, deer etc. etc.) were bad around these parts this year. I heard many a tale from avid outdoorsy types about how they high tailed it down wooded trails on foot and whisked around tight corners on bikes trying to avoid the nasty buggers. As I listened to their stories of pinning dryer sheets to their clothes to ward them off I tried my darnedest to be sympathetic and dared not mention that the tiny pests never bother me even if I happen to run through a swarm and accidentally down a few while I'm at it.
