That's *exactly* the ending I was hoping for.

"Found one."

I think part of it was related to the fact that they had crafted a clever barrier of hand flares yet forgot that the morphology of an insect demands that it has wings and can use them for something.

Binro the Heretic
The security guard told them it couldn't fly.

Hee!

Old People
To be honest, I saw that coming and I still flinched.

Gmork
Fucking yes.
ashtar.

"Their bite is considered one of the most painful that can be inflicted by any insect, however, though excruciatingly painful, it is of no medical significance."

Giant water bugs show up in the weirdest places. I found one - live - in the middle of the sidewalk on Huntington Ave in Boston once. A friend and I caught it and took it over to the Fens and set it free. I had no idea they bit at all.

I also don't know what it was doing in Boston. It was a Benacus deyrolli so it had way bigger front legs than this one but it was a little smaller over all.

An ex of mine and I found one of these in Madison Wisconsin one summer. We made a little video and set it up to They Might Be Giants' "Wicked Little Critter" complete with strobe light. Seemed to like it, but then was like "K guys I gotta go now"

Old_Zircon
I actually didn't know these things could fly. The Wikipedia article says they are NOCTURNAL fliers and I've only ever seen them in the day time, I literally didn't even known they had fully developed wings.

My friend and I gave the Boston one a good talking to about remembering it was a Giant Water Bug not a Giant Sidewalk Bug.

Old_Zircon
FULL DISCLOSURE: I don't actually have a clue if it was Benacus deyrolli (or if this one isn't for that matter), I'm just going by the fact that mine had front legs about half again longer than the one in the video.

Binro the Heretic
You haven't experienced real terror until one of these big bastards has flown into your face on a warm summer night.

I hear they fry these things up and eat them in Thailand.
il fiore bel
To be fair, I think they fry up anything that has more than four legs in Thailand.

Gmork
*two legs

That guy
*anything at all

SolRo
they wont fry a twinkie. they have some self restraint, unlike some countries.

il fiore bel
Bitch, you gonna make fun of MY rhythm?
boner
These bastards will steal your synthesizers.

Didn't a couple of these crawl out of Paul Winfield and Walter Koening's ears in Star Trek II?
