Insects play a vital role in Earth's ecosystem.

Without insects, some plants would die and some animals would starve creating a domino effect of global famine.

That being said, June Bugs can crawl back into the pits of Hell from whence they came.

I know I'm not alone in that opinion.


Redditor aconnor105 asked:

"What insect can go straight to Hell?"

Horseflies

"Horseflies. One of those f'kers chased my car for an hour and a half."

- an_ineffable_plan

"Ah yes, the sadistic combination of a mosquito's diet and gluttony and a fly's energy and speed."

- MadQrow

"Their mouthparts are literally two knives with the blades facing outwards, when a horsefly (or deer fly, or moose fly) bites you, they’re literally ripping a hole in your skin and lapping up the blood."

- MacTechG4

"They are such a**holes. A thrown shoe when they land is surprisingly effective at taking them out."

- AcceptablyPotato

"Deploy La Chancla!"

Bed Bugs

"Bed bugs. If you're anything like me just the mention of them makes your skin crawl."

- My_Space_page

"The bites are bad but the paranoia is worse. Once you get them you will never trust a bed ever again."

"Every unexplained itch will make you think 'F'k, are they back?'."

Japanese Murder Hornets

"Those killer hornet things from Japan."

Mosquitoes

"Mosquitoes. Every single one."

- Fish_Panda

"Only few select, totally expendable species of mosquitoes feed on humans. We need to just completely exterminate those f**kers!"

- vortex1001

"Kill em all, let their mosquito god sort em out."

June Bugs

Vindicated! I'm not the only one who hates these things.

"June Bugs. I hate them so much. They fly right at you and are so loud! And I get embarrassed for screaming my a** off."

- Skeebou and Cupacakezzz

"1000% this. They make sitting outside in the summer in Texas after 8:00pm (when it’s actually cool enough to sit outside) completely unbearable."

- Rendogala

Cockroaches

"Cockroaches. I want to invent a laser to kill just these f'kers only. They all need to burn to ash."

- AlphaShard

"In South China we had drain cockroaches that would panic when they got caught in flash torrential rain. They make a beeline for the nearest high ground, which includes you."

"I didn't really believe it at first."

"'Hah, that cockroach looks like he's sprinting towards me. Look, he even changed direction with me. Whoa, hold on a minute mate'."

"He got to my upper chest before I managed to throw him off."

"About 2,000 of them panicked after a minor earthquake, flooding out of the drains and into the nearby shops. Yelps and colourful language followed as shop staff pelted them into the air and onto bikes/cars/pedestrians with brooms."

Earwigs

"Earwigs. Creepy a** bugs with those big a** pincers on their butt."

"And they always come out at night, get in water glasses, mailboxes...nasty things."

- Xonvoluted

Fleas

"Fleas. Literally any parasitic insect."

- Recent_View6254

"This is the answer, literally just any parasite. Some actually DO have a reason to exist, but others seem like they were created for the PURPOSE of spreading diseases and pain."

Borers

"The Emerald Ash Borer. Has killed three massive trees on my property, and is working its way to killing every ash tree in my part of the country."

There are insects we mostly love—like honeybees, ladybugs or butterflies...

...but there seem to be a lot more we mostly hate.

Did your insect nemesis make the list?

It's become increasingly hard to get through a day without encountering a scam artist.

Be it an email where you've been told you won a non-existent prize, a fraudulent call from the IRS claiming there's a warrant issued for your arrest, or a neighborhood psychic, luring you in to tell you a terrible fate awaits you, but you have to pay hundreds of dollars more to find out what it is.

From snake oil salesmen to Ponzi schemes, scam artists have been around for ages, and will not be going anywhere any time soon.

And while our hearts break for anyone who falls victim to these horrendous acts of deception, there is also little that is more compelling than reading about some of the more outrageous scams which ever took place (Fyre Festival anyone).

Some Americans have been known to wish they lived elsewhere in the world, owing to certain things appearing to be much better handled elsewhere.

Up to and including healthcare, free education, cost of living, or simply the way they make pizza or coffee.

However, sometimes we must stop and remind ourselves that the grass is always greener in someone else's yard.

As there are plenty of people all over the world who wish they were living in the USA, believing that some things are simply done better in America.

There are very few people in the United States who don't indulge in fast food every once in a while.

Sometimes it's out of pleasure, taking an occasional indulgence in the delicious, salty, if less than healthy, treats the food chains provide.

Other times, it might be out of necessity, as it might be the only option while on the road or waiting in the airport after your flight was canceled for the second time.

But there are some fast food chains to which people have such an aversion to that they simply will not eat from them, even if it is literally the only option.

Making one almost wish that these places would go out of business, so that they will never even be an option.
