Simply a "nine-year-old boy" :))) . It's the age when you torture ants to see how long they'll survive, keep on kicking you little daughter, and laugh at anyone who has braces. And adults just say: "children can be cruel you know" :)) Actually, I never quite did that. At my first ant killed, I was so horrified by my act that I never killed any animal again (at least not willingly), even the smallest ones. I don't even attack mosquitoes and the like, unless ordered too :)) . But in this case, I think I was the one with a strange behaviour when I was nine :)) . Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
