Awwe! Don't you just want to gobble them up?

Destin from Smarter Every Day has a good explanation of this kind of locomotion:


#4

A tad reminiscent of Princess Mononoke, amirite?


#5

Substantially cuter than the end of Akira!

Huh - I think I found a pile of these things once. Or possibly a pile of maggots? Just one day out of the blue mom called me up and had me get rid of this pile of wiggling larvae. It was nasty. Probably about 3-4in x 1-1 1/2in. I scooped them up with something and chucked them over the fence into the field.

Adorable Nightmare Fuel! I should not have clicked the video. It's only 20 seconds, but I lasted for less than half of that before I started itching, blech.

It's totally interesting, group motion like that, but I guess I'm delicate as far as the visual is concerned.

Speed x 4 + Yackety Sax = okay, maybe not.


#9

Aren't they a little young to be having an orgy?


#10

In the same vein: some adorable dog photos (WARNING: may not actually be adorable).

This video seriously brought out my inner crow. For a few seconds, I was like "Aw, cute fuzzies, all wiggly together! That's the spirit!!" And then I was like "Aw crap. There goes lunch." And than I was all "Dammit. I thought I had my identity issues worked out. A cat can't be a bird, can they? Maybe I'm actually one of the gnat larvae?"

"We should go this way!"

"No, we should go this way!"

I feel for the ones at the split who are having to make the decision about which group to go with. Can't be easy for little larvae, I figure...

Yup. Very familiar.

Cute? Not really.


#16

Any connection to the website?


#17

The suspense about the split is killing me. Does the group ever split entirely into two before they reach the other side? Does it result in a fungus gnat larvae civil war over the Great Sidewalk Schism?

"Splitters!"
