The Return of Brood X

Post by joatmon » Sun Mar 28, 2004 2:25 am

it sounds like some cheap horror movie, millions of swarming insects, laying dormant, biding their time, waiting for the right moment, and then returning to inflict unspeakable acts on humans. but wait, it's real!http://www.washingtonpost.com/....htmlh ... et...r.htm

Aaah the locusts, yes I heard about the plagues in the past. I was in D.C. in 1988 and we heard much about them, but luckily they weren't around in swarms that year. Last year we were plagued with yellow ladybugs around here. Darn things were everywhere and loved to inhabit buildings. And they hurt when they bite! I'm already seeing some of them returning and I am starting to cringe.

I didn't get any at home this year, guess I'm too far south to be in the Brood X territory. Got a bunch of them in DC though. I'm reluctant to see how many are in the radiator. The sound that a couple hundred thousand of those things make is just like the enterprise phaser in Star Trek. Seems to be pretty much over now though.

its been 17 years

https://www.fox5dc.com/news/maryland-co ... essor-says
... that Maryland will be the "epicenter" of the cicada emergence set to arrive this spring ...
... as many as 1.5 million cicadas will emerge per acre ...
I guess to be a real SyFy movie, they'd have to be combined with something more dangerous, like prianhacadia, or sharcadia
