I’ve always wanted to know the inner thought processes of the little bugs that just love to fly into my eyeballs. Do they know they will die in the process of temporarily blinding me? Is there some cultish scheme of suicide drones in an attempt to keep me indoors? Are my eyes secreting some kind of delicious nectar that they just can’t help but dive into? These are the questions scientists need to really be working on.
What genetic evolutionary advantage are these bugs getting by committing suicide? I think the gist of it is that I don’t understand nature. Truly I haven’t done anything to them, I mean, besides stomping, swatting, squishing, and generally putting them on my Kill on Sight list. Perhaps I’ve just been put on some kind of bug hit list. Whatever the cause is, with the start of summer the war has begun.
