    Most of them weren`t too bad, but that whitish praying mantis thing was very scary...
    Thanks for the nightmares, IAB!

    and seeing the praying mantis made me look into the myth that its illegal to kill them, which aparently its not. but why would someone kill them anyway?:[

    Awesomo, just remember, you`ll probably be sending in applications, for jobs, to nerds.
    Then they`ll think "Oh, this guy beat me up in high school." Then guess what?
    No job for you!

    We had a whole bunch of giant mantis bugs were we used to live. It`s kinda scary when they fly at your face.

    Of all the mantids, they show one which is the most common around?! (chinese mantis) - flawed list... weevils and some of the spiders have far more exaggerated carapaces!
    First mantid is a chinese mantis: t. sinensis
    Second mantid is a spiny flower mantis: p whalbergii
    third mantis is a violin mantis: g.gongylodes

    look them up on google, pics are way nicer there

    Just keep pictures of ants, centipedes, and millipedes away from me and I`m pretty much good.

    God I feel like such a baby...
    I felt like screaming when I saw those close ups of bugs I was so scared. >____<;
    I thought I only hated them because they are small and you don`t know where they might be. But nope, they are just as creepy big...even more so. O_O

    My friend has all these weird bugs around her home, but they`re all dead. She claims they look humanoid, which I guess they kind of do, but they also look like some form of cricket.

    I think any bug can look alien-like, if you want it to.

    Ha! The second one was cute! It was like it was waving.

    Awww... I understand the others, but why would you want to squish the mantids? They`re actually very clean and rather intelligent for something with naught but a simple brain...
