Flying Ant Day!!

So today I came home and there's fucking hundreds of flying ants in my face and all over the floor. So I was all like, "Why the fuck do ants have wings all of a sudden and why are they trying to fly into my mouth??", but then I looked them up on wikipedia and it turns out that it's fine*.

*Apparently it happens every year (even though the last time i rmember it is when i was about 5 and dug my play trowel into the soil and thousands of flying ants flew at me - i thought i'd really hit on something). It's a localised mating ritual where they grow wings, bone and go home.
