    Yes, pumps around here stop at that.

    As far as Mothra there, dude - Riding the bike this year is like no other. Those little beetles are out, and it's like getting hit by a bb, constantly. I'm wearing full leathers and helmet on hot nights still.

    it's like a cross between a June bug/Japanese beetle/dragonfly.

    Oh you get a "D" for effort here. Pteradactyl.

    The other day at my friends house he had a creepy as praying mantis on his table. It would follow us ... i would tap a bottle on the table right next to it to scare it off, but instead it would run full speed towards the bottle!!!


    i hate bugs :(

    I'm big on the Mantii. I love those things, and they are all over my property. I can pick them up and they never attack me. I had one in my civic for a while a few summers ago from Airjockie's house. He was cute.

    My female died last year, she lived for 2 years. She was all brown and shit. And about 6 inches long.

    "I've seen some shit man..." //looks around shiftily//

    But yea, I had a bug hit the windshield the other day, I'm surprised it didn't crack my windshield. It was like a small bird with an exoskeleton.

    My favorite bugs are fireflies. They're nice and they just sit on your hand....and their ass glows. Who could want a better thing that that.

    I hit a few coming back up to ID and their asses smeared all over my windshield. They glowed for like 20 minutes afterwards.

    I use to catch lots of them when I was little and put them in a jar until my mother said get rid of them. I actually still will catch one if they light up near me, haha.
