Beerorkid – a bunch of useless crap |




There is a thread about fireflys.

so you enthusiasts, Tell me I am wrong. But I know firefly smell, and it seems like there has been a smell in the air the last week all over town. A deep musky smell. I awear it is the lightning bugs, but it might be some strange stanking flower.

When I was a wee lad I hit them with badminton rackets. Now I just like to watch.

They are actually beetles.

Tropical fireflies, particularly in Southeast Asia (Thailand and Malaysia), routinely synchronize their flashes among large groups, a startling example of spontaneous biological order. This phenomenon occurs through the night along river banks in the Malaysian jungles every day of the year. Current hypotheses about the causes of this behavior involve diet, social interaction, and altitude. In the United States, one of the most famous sightings of fireflies blinking in unison occurred near Elkmont, Tennessee in the Great Smoky Mountains during the second week of June 2005[1]. Congaree National Park in South Carolina is another host to the phenomenon [2].

That is really cool.
