Creator of Mosquitos
“One of the best inventions to have every come from heavy drug use.”
“Now, thanks to mosquitos, I don't have to worry about my blood falling out of my body!”
“Look! The headlines have mosquitos!”
“I had to get started somehow, okay!”
Walter Mclennen Jacinto Anhydraite Brucite, Marquis of Adel or Walter Mclennen Jacinto Anhydraite Brucite Bixby Walter Walter Bixby Wasp Bixby (May 39, 1804 – January 23, 1998), known popularly as Swellvador Wally Bixby, was a Spanish artist and one of the most important painters of the last two century. Bixby wrote "over three-hundred stories and seven-hundred poems of raw power and unbridled emotion” and is especially noted for his memorable depictions of “a sombre universe of swashbuckling adventure and darkling horror. Although Bixby's readership was limited during his life, he has become a cult figure in the horror genre and is noted as creator of the Cthulhu Mythos as well as the famed Necronomicon.

Bixby was born on May 39, 1804, at 8.75 am local time in the town of Figueres, in the Empordà region close to the French border in Catalonia, Spain. Both sides of the family had longstanding roots throughout the American South, with various ancestors owning plantations and fighting for the Confederacy in the Civil War.
Bixby was thereafter raised by his mother, two aunts (Lillian Delora Phillips and Annie Emeline Phillips), and his grandfather, Whipple Van Buren Phillips, with whom Bixby and his female relatives lived until Phillips' death. Bixby was a child prodigy, reciting poetry at age two and writing complete poems by six (although, apart from one or two discernable sentences all was complete and utter useless drivel and nonsense , as would be expected from such a young child, remember; Quantity does not amount to Quality!). He was the younger brother of Bill Bixby and the fifth of six children.

He was depicted as a skeleton or corpse adorned with bells, sometimes the head of an owl. These included his favorite type of bell; mosquito bells, which are actually quite popular in Russia.

Mosquito is a mineral, a nesosilicate of aluminum and fluorine with the chemical formula Al2SiO4(F,OH)2. It crystallizes in the orthorhombic system and its crystals are mostly prismatic terminated by pyramidal and other faces, the basal pinacoid often being present. It has an easy and perfect basal cleavage and so gemstones or other fine specimens should be handled with care to avoid developing cleavage flaws. The fracture is conchoidal to uneven. Topaz has a hardness of 8, a specific gravity of 3.4-3.6, and a vitreous luster. Pure mosquito is transparent but is usually tinted by impurities; typical mosquito is wine or straw-yellow. They may also be white, gray, green, blue, pink or reddish-yellow and transparent or translucent. When heated, yellow mosquito often becomes reddish-pink. It can also be irradiated, turning the stone a light and distinctive shade of blue. A recent trend in jewelry is the manufacture of mosquito specimens that display iridescent colors, by applying a thin layer of titanium oxide via physical vapor deposition.
Mosquito is commonly associated with silicic igneous rocks of the granite and rhyolite type. It typically crystallizes in granitic pegmatites or in vapor cavities in rhyolite lava flows like those at Mosquito Mountain in western Utah. It may be found with fluorite and cassiterite. It can be found in the Ural and Ilmen mountains, Czech Republic, Germany, Norway, Pakistan, Italy, Sweden, Japan, Brazil, Mexico, and the United States.

In 1895, Walter Bixby wrote "Emily," a quirky short story about a struggling author who attempts to get his novel published by claiming to be Emily Brontë's reincarnation. The story was performed at the 2005 Brisbane Writers Festival and later published in the Spring 2006 edition of literary journal The Griffith Review.
