I've come to believe that a huge majority of Americans have never gone outside and interacted with the creatures of the world. We used to call that "childhood."

I lived through the 2004 invasion and it felt like an alien invasion too.  The two weeks of their mating calls was so loud. But the noise I really hated was when they all suddenly died and when you stepped on them (dead ones were everywhere) that all too familiar crunching sound under your shoe...

Yeah, I've managed to survive these things. Not sure why everyone loses their shiat every time. We didn't even have the internet the first time I came across them, and we were all able to make it through the summer.

Why is American media treating cicadas as a threat?

I'm not in the lose my shiat camp, more the excited camp. Emergence of these critter is quite rare on my timescale (after this brood, I might see 2 more in my lifetime) ....and it's fun for some reason.

I really enjoy seeing some people get to experience them for the first time (my nephew is 16, friends from the U.K. that haven't been here too long)...

yep...
they pee on you to get away....as they are flying away from you...???

OMG Cicadas!!!!!

Nature is filthy, still cleaner than any city, though.

I spent a summer in La Crosse once where the "bloom" could be seen on the doppler radar and the Cicada carcasses had to be shoveled off the road the next day.

I just remember them being so loud that even inside with the doors and windows shut, and the TV on, you could hear the damn things.

But it blends in to the background pretty quickly, like traffic or something.

I don't get the big deal unless you've never seen them.  I think this is just another thing that we once took in stride but now with social media it has become a big thing.

Bug zappers across America fire up, just for the popcorn sound....

I'm sorry dude you have a right to hate them but everyone else is still puzzling.
