Owls are terrified of these things.

That's not a moth. That's a uterus trying to flutter its way to Canada, lured by the glowing light of their healthcare system.

These guys emerge from the cocoon without a month.  They then mate and spend a week slowly starving to death.

Saw that in the movies when I was young. Thought it was one of the weirder bits in a very strange movie. Don't know if I can watch it again. I am no longer young.

Damn that huge thing just hanging out on the wall like those pancake creatures that flapped around and latched onto Spock's neck and made him go nuts until Kirk figured out UV light kills them so the Enterprise gave everyone on the planet skin cancer.

Same here. My brother and I could watch multiple monster movies over a given weekend.

Now I don't know how we did it. I can watch a little of one for nostalgia, but yikes.

Is that right, Maria, that - that you were complaining about these "meuths"?
Maria Gambrelli : Yes, I did complain about moths.
Clouseau : Oh, you mean "meuths"!

Seems like it escaped from someone that had it as a pet as they are native to Asia

Thank God we're talking about a moth...
 
2022-08-17 6:42:43 PM  
I don't see a moth. I see two snakes. Scared.

You should try Nicholas Cage movies.

Sorry, no.

No thanks.

I'm generally fine with bugs, but one who's wings would sting if I got smacked by it is a no go.

Basically any bug I'd have to spray down the area to clean up it's carcass is a no-go for me.

Every few years we have one that shows up. Awesome to see, but sadly they are waiting to die.
