Similarly stick insects, not a thing you'd expect to fly by looking at it

So bees only fly because the relevant authority hasn't told them not to?

Interesting.

Funny how grasshoppers can fly as well as jumping around. I think basically all insects have wings but some of them they are vestigial. Like penguins and ostriches or whatever. Or theyre shit at it like chickens.

When I was in school, a common "fact" that was cited alongside Kel from Kenan & Kel having died was that "according to the laws of physics bees shouldn't be able to fly, but they don't know this so they fly anyway."

If the woodlice start disappearing you know it is short countdown to grave time

Earwigs were abolished in 2003.

Woodlice are to be phased out at the end of 2023, following a replacement rollout of cockroaches as a more appropriate bug for these apocalyptic times.
