They deserve it. Stinking russians.

The 'tornadoes' are part of an elaborate mating ritual, where hundreds of thousands of male mozzies swarm around one or more females.

Russia made the shift into endless shrieking despair sometime around the 11th century, Subby. 2020's just another year for them. Another awful, awful year.

Are the skeeters from Lapland?? I hope so.

Some of them thangs are big enough to catch a B-52 and suck it dry.

This is depressingly anticlimactic.

Just let this happen to Putin and/or his trolls, and things would be right as rain.

Thanks subby.  You reminded me that I need to DVR Lovecraft Country tomorrow night.

Dear Dad, I have spent over 10 years and $94,000 putting together my mosquito costume and now I am pleased to announce that I have become a mosquito. The costume is quite realistic and I have even attached bladders to the nose thing so that I can suck up liquids when I puncture them...with my nose thing. I could be buzzing all around you on a hot summer day and you wouldn't even recognize me as your son-child, you would just think, "Get away, mosquito." From my point of view, you would be 3,000 dads because of the way I've designed the eyeballs. I might be saying, "Dad it's me, Dad it's me," but you wouldn't be able to understand my language because of its buzzing. I am also into plastics now and I am making plastic tubes that you can suck liquids through; kind of like my mosquito nose, but used for different reasons. Hope you're doing well at camp. See you soon.

they do more clouds than tornado stuff.

sourballs: The males don't bite. They're just being friendly


The opposite actually. The male's bite and the females make the buzzing sound next to your ear as they try to implant eggs in a dark moist place (like your ear canal). Sweet dreams.

Err, oops. You are correct. The males drink nectar.

Not quite enough for a CSB but had an absolutely vicious cloud of mosquitoes descend on my Dad and I as we decided to sit down for a picnic in middle-of-nowhere Alaska. It was plague like. We ran back to our car. No less scary than had it been a bee swarm. Sometimes while I drove through rural areas the windshield would suddenly get peppered with mosquito splat juice. It would happen so suddenly that you'd have to flip the wipers on.

So yeah, mosquitonadoes are a thing.

No country has an entire population that deserves whatever they get. They have a government that deserves a serious karmic response, but most of the population deserves a break from all the misery already.

Alaska mosquito stings are odd. They swell up to the size of a nickel in diameter but don't itch as much per bite.

The qualifier, "per bite" is important. If you are in wilderness Alaska during the warm months with out Deet or something as strong, you will look like you rolled in a poison ivy patch.

have seen very few lovebugs in FL the last few years. Very odd... (usually they're everywhere, usually on the grill or windshield of my car)>
