When laying in bed i couldn't stop thinking about one thing, if i'm out shining my 1W blue laser in the sky and a bug or fly hit, will the beam stop travelling and stop on the bug and blind me? Or will the bug get fried in a sec or two? I know thi sounds retarded, but yeah. I am. :D

Took this picture and the reflection you see in mid air is an insect flying through the beam, nothing really happens; you don't kill it since the period of light exposure is too short, you don't blind yourself ether.

Well you can kill it, it just depends on the type of insect and the closeness it is to you're laser, also depending on the insect size it might not pass thru it.
