If anybody goes fishing grab some type of net & go catch some of them. Those things are EXCELLENT for almost any & all freshwater fish. Killer bait

I wonder if they dive bomb fish like they do people from St. Louis.

OK I know what these things are now. I have always thought of them as "locusts". Surprised the ground temp has to be 64 degrees, etc -- I kind of remember them making alot of noise but in very very very hot weather.

And the shell they leave behind is kind of wild.

There will come a day when I punch your fucking face off. I can only hope rossi is there to sensationalize it. "HIS FACE WAS PUNCHED OFF SO HARD IT STUCK TO THE BUILDING AND SLID DOWN THE SIDE LIKE A CARTOON PANCAKE!"

I would legit pay upwards of one (1) dollar to see a Ports vs. Chris from St. Louie shootfight.

Which gets me thinking...claw, can we run a tourney here? We'll call it the "Which S&W Poster Would Win in a Shootfight?" Tournament. 64 entrant, single elimination.

It'll be epic. It'll be known as the Cicada Invitational.


Mikeynumbers said I could borrow his lucky running shoes whenever I needed them. Bring it motherfuckers.


Starting with the roadwork then, eh?  Oh it's on...it's on like "Donkey Kong".

Chris better watch his ass.

I remember them last time they were around, I don't ever remember "dive bombing" anyone..you may get hit by one but that's just from them flying around..

And personally, I always liked the sound..something peaceful about it actually..

We called them locusts too, even though a real locust is more like a big, flying grasshopper. But I don't think ours hibernate for so many years and swarm en masse like that. You just see the exoskeleton stuck on a tree/wall/fence, etc every now and them. It's cool to catch one and let it buzz in your hand. But like I said, we don't get those huge swarms every couple of decades.

One dive bombed me, I swatted it and it gave a high pitch squeal. It must be the St. Louis area Cicadas that go after humans, then.

I think this matchup might be able to set the all-time attendance record if we were to hold it at The Tavern On The Green.

I do know this - you run into one of those things on a motorcycle at highway speed and it feels like you've been shot.

Also if you are driving a car through a heavily populated area of cicadas it looks like you were shot at with a paintball gun.
