Just a bug. I like bugs. In fact, I was researching butterflies on Wikipedia and trying to discern from facts what helped create legends in Native American mythology. I do this with most insects and animals alike, sort of a hobby. . .

Then came a scratching sound, quiet at first then loud and frantic, coming from the computer tower at my feet. I thought maybe at first that it was a small rodent somewhere trapped inside the casing, but how could that happen? Logically.

Then, perhaps it was water and I would be electrocuted. Again.
I started tapping on it, thinking maybe something got lodged in there, then tilting it and looking underneath. I finally gave up and went back to my theory that the Navajo Mothway legend was a result of Wolbachia (very interesting) when movement caught my eye.

Right by my foot! Two inches long! No idea what it was. I think I caught one when I was a kid, but it was small. I didn't just squish it, I f*cking mutilated it. Still have the top half.

It has huge pincers and six legs. It had the body formation of an ant, but was striped like a bee.

Stop scaring me.

Wish I hadn't killed it, but it scared the sh*t out of me.

All bugs must die!
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 9/14/07 - 6:15:14 AM EST (GMT-5)
Ah, it was a potato bug.

What is wrong with you?!?!?
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 9/14/07 - 6:17:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
Ha ha, try having that crawl out from under your feet! I'm still shaking.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 9/14/07 - 6:17:51 AM EST (GMT-5)
Damnit. Why, WHY did I come back in this thread?!?!
If that crawled out from under my feet, I would die. DIE.

What are those bugs that get about by smacking the lower halves of their bodies against the ground and bouncing away?
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 9/14/07 - 6:19:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
I even washed my shoe right after I stomped it. That's probably because I learned that millipedes have a type of cyanide gas they can emit from from their epidermis and it can dye your skin a dark red that takes forever to go away.

I don't know how many bugs can do that. . .

I'll find out.

DAMMIT, WHY DID I COME HERE?!
I'm terrified of bugs.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 9/14/07 - 6:20:24 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm at home sick with a tummy bug virus.
I think my PC has one as well, IE keeps on freezing and sh*t.

I hate normal insects as well.
Everything/anything to do with bugs is never good.

13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 9/14/07 - 6:24:32 AM EST (GMT-5)
Instinct, do you know what they look like at all? I can't find much and the databases for creepy crawlies are pretty huge.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 9/14/07 - 6:29:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
They look like pill bugs, only more squared, and they only fold in the middle.

Anything like this?


Its called a springtail.

EVIL.

No... They look furry, and somewhat unsettling.
Maybe I don't want to know.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 9/14/07 - 6:41:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
I know this has nothing to do with it, but I liked the photo. Now THIS is unsettling.

It looks like it's plotting something...
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 9/14/07 - 7:14:33 AM EST (GMT-5)
Indeed.

I have not been able to find the one you were talking about, but I'm sure that I will eventually.

I like the plotting catterpillar looking thing, it's cute!

That's exactly what I thought. Apparantly caterpillar faces can be very emotive
