Dobson must have been a real dick.

Gross. I've never seen one in the flesh, but it's comforting to know that they live all over North America, so maybe I'll get to run into one some time.

those aren't pincers dumbass, those are horns that males use for dueling other males

Imagine seeing one of these for the first time when you are ten years old and using the only crapper in a run-down campground in the middle of the night.
The sound the wings made just before it landed on my face were the worst part.
Nowadays I think they're cool as hell, but at the time it was horrifying.
Holy shit. That sucks / is awesome!
I was but a lad myself when I first saw one. I was climbing in the orchard just after sunset and brushed against the susurrant wings of the dobsonfly. Against the bark of the apple tree it was almost invisible but for those wings.
I caught it, of course, but in the process discovered that along with the enormous pincer-like horns, the male dobsonfly also has powerful mandibles. Strong enough to draw blood.
