    Just witnessed the weirdest thing

    On one of my lamps is an octagonal lamp shade. I noticed that a bug landed on it and started doing laps on the top rim of the shade. I counted about 24 laps. It then stopped, and then I killed it. Thought I'd share this........summer........


    You probably think I'm at a disadvantage, I promise you I'm not

    You killed it when it was tired? Come back when you man up and kill it when its able to fend for itself.

    that sounds boring. Go order something from ebay. I bet that story will have a more exciting ending ;)

    Is this what God would reflect on after a runner died at the conclusion of a 10,000-meter run?

    That's what came to mind when I read your post.

    Perhaps my take on it is, um, 'unusual'.

    Re: Just witnessed the weirdest thing

    Bug now posting on a bug forum:

    So, this guy whose apartment I've invaded...he's kind of weird, so I decide to see how long I can get him to watch me. I land on this lampshade...now here's the good part, I didn't pick a normal, round one, I pick an octagonal one, right, because it's weirder. Then, I just start walking. Round and round, away I go. And he just keeps watching. I can tell he's trying not to look too obvious, but I can see him watching me. Oh, sure, he keeps on ranting about fedex deliveries or some such thing, but he's watching me. I got up to 24 laps before he swatted at me and I had to play dead. Twenty-**cking FOUR man! He sat there for 24 laps!

    It was probably trying to signal and warn you about the spider under your sheets.
