This story is just so off the rails.

I can envision somebody trying to turn this into a festival to attract foreign tourists.

This event is always worse when a thunderstorm causes them to stampede.

This is probably inspiration for a new sushi dish.

I was just thinking how this story didn’t push that revolting dystopian trope about insects being the protein of the future. Then LeDud had to mention it. (insert retching sound here.)

"This millipede needs seven years from egg to adult and one more year for maturation"

Some humans never mature.
