Add this one to Headlines you never would have seen in the 1950's.

You can't really make this stuff up can you ?

Word of the day: Sporulation. So that's what they call it these days.

Microsoft should recruit this team of researchers along with the fallen genitals and free up time for people like Bill Gates to go on a sex binge and develop an actual working genital 'App'endage.

Ever think that scientists are just pervs making all this $#!+ up?

If you need me, I'll be in my garage, screen-printing "Flying Salt Shakers of Death - 2019 U.S. Tour" t-shirts...

1. Apendages fall off
2. They go on sex binges
I'm missing something.
Or they are, actually

Today's question:

After a male cicada's genitals drop off, how is it possible for them to go on a sex binge?

Please keep your answers short and free from uncontrollable laughter caused by us posing this stupid question in the first place.

@JG and Le Pet - This phenomenon is possible because the female cicada, much like her human counterpart- the elusive Spotted Gold Digger, has evolved the skill to fake it.

Stix, I'm not sure how elusive the Gold Diggers are. There seem to be quite a few of them around.

Fungal hallucinogens sounds like Magic Mushrooms. Are we also in danger (..asking for a friend).

Sex binges after the genitals fall off. Sure.(ha)
