    Quite a few years ago I was stationed in northern Japan, and one summer we had cicadas. LOTS of cicadas, to the point that going outside the building to smoke a cigarette (this was the new, modern Air Force) was deafening due to the hum, for about a week.

    During that week, I happened to see one of the little buggers that had just hatched, or chracked his chrysalis, or whatever they do, clinging to a tree in the station’s yard. He was fat, he was 1980s neon green, and I swear he was smiling. One of the oddly cuter things I’ve seen in my life.
