The other day I go out to clean up the back porch after a rowdy night and I find this weird swarming mass of tiny insects. I thought at first is was a random piece of cloth but when I looked closer it was a teaming mass of millions of tiny bugs. I've never seen anything like this before and my google-fu has proved too weak to crack the mystery. Anyone on here know what I'm looking at? Warning Creepy Crawlys ahead!
my toddler is sitting on the couch with me and when that video played he said "ewwww!" repeatedly until it stopped.
which was pretty much also how I felt watching that. it looks like they are about to swarm your house or something. considering how vastly outnumbered we are by Arthropods I have long suspected our end will come not from zombies or a meteor but from hordes of insects rising up against us.
That's my leading theory based on what I could find on the intertubes but I wasn't able to find a picture of a swarm like this. I did find another youtube video of them but that guy had no idea what they were either.
"When music affects us to tears, seemingly causeless, we weep not... from excess of pleasure; but through excess of an impatient, petulant sorrow that, as mere mortals, we are as yet in no condition to banquet upon those supernal ecstasies of which the music affords us merely a suggestive and indefinite glimpse."
