Unless! Unless cicada had a random distribution of hibernation cycles and over time some of them became synchronized because the 2s and 4s and 6s all emerged at the same time with the 12s…whereas the ones on a prime number rotation …hmm I have to talk to a math person about this
This was true in America as well. Obscured in the constant debates over whether the 2nd amendment allows individual gun ownership, is what it's original purpose was: militias, whose primary purpose was to kill natives and revolting slaves. This was what was truly behind the phrase "a well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state."
The state and local militias were the shock troops that settlers called in to do their dirty work--sometimes they would be in the militia itself, but often they would just follow in its wake or cry out for gov't aid (in the form or militias) after they faced indigenous pushback.
You can draw a straight line from this to cowardly MAGA chuds who require a ring of police around them to protect their freeze peach.
The Israeli police serve the same function in illegal settlements
Whenever I’ve asked my local restaurant owners to add more vegetarian items to the menu, they have been happy to get suggestions. They don’t even have to do anything sometimes — make the breakfast sandwich available without the bacon and make the bacon an upsell? This is the kind of thing I’m talking about.
WOW! Very impressive line-up!
