The worst ones are those big black things with legs that dangle down, they hang around water and farms like hoodies. They hurt when they hit you but are big enough to cough back up and spit out if swallowed
This may be a suitable thread to ask a question I was thinking about the other day...
After riding my motorbike in the summer, I'm forever scraping swashed flies off my visor and jacket, and obviously the front of the car is always covered with flattened flies. I'm wondering what the "squash velocity" of flies is? (I guess it varies with the mass of the fly?). I've never noticed squashed flies on the glasses I wear on the bicycle, dispite going though a swarm of the little buggers at over 30.
Funny the things you think about when your mind wanders on the bike.
