ZeroCorpse:Here in Michigan we get our own lovely, noisy cicada racket every summer. I don't know why people who go on and on about the 17-year cicadas consider it anything special. How do they even tell the difference?They are far larger in number, and LOUD. Loud, and everywhere. It is spooky, rather than a rising and waning whirr, it is a constant, maddening, penetrating static hiss. It's not just a noise... it is unnerving and the same from all directions, a smothering white noise with no discernible origin. Plus, the clumsy little bastards are everywhere, in everything. Driving or walking means crunch, crunch, crunch *bzzzzzzzz* --got a live one. There are several 'broods' that come out at staggered intervals, and some are heavier than others. Trust me, it is weird, psychologically disturbing and socially disruptive. It is different.PastaFazoole: I'm terrified of bugs.
Munchkin City Coroner: fat 2-inch long wasps.
anuran: Scary?Why is subby such a whiny little child?
CygnusDarius: First we ate the horses--we weren't riding anywhere, not with the castle surrounded. We couldn't feed them, so, fine, the horses. Then the cats--never liked cats, so, fine. I do like dogs--good animals, loyal--but we ate them. Then the rats. The night before you slipped through I thought my wife was dying--she couldn't speak anymore, she was so frail. And then you made it through the lines--slipped right through, with your little black sailboat, and your onions cicadas.
