Because no topic can ever be discussed too much, I'm thinking I wasn't clear on this whole cicada thing.
If you're not familiar with our cicada invasions, I'm not talking about your regular summertime outdoor camping noises, this is an infestation of biblical proportions we get at regular intervals.
Meet Cicada Brood XIX:
These particular ones come out every 13 years, and there are millions of them. Their sole purpose is to sing, fly, mate, lay eggs, and then die. They lumber around, fly clumsily and they are everywhere.
As I shared on Twitter, I had one in MY PANTS when I was driving home from work the other day.
The shuttle driver at work won't let you on until she's convinced you don't have one on you.
These are cicadas:
I guess if I had the energy to capture them with a real camera instead of my phone, it'd be easier to see the significance, but that noise in the video isn't static, it's 120 decibels of cicada lovin'.
I just felt you needed to know that for some reason.
I'm giving away a $100 Shutterfly gift card. Hurry and enter it ends tomorrow!! (5/25)
