    This earwig looks quite sophisticated dressed in black dining in that beautiful flower, whose name I do not know but would love to know. Lovely soft background.

    Ohhhh, we call these clipshears, I've never liked these little beasties. Looking at them I get cold shivers down my back. Nice flower though.

    Truth be told, I feel the same way, Karen.

    Does anyone remember the Star Trek movie about The Wrath Kahn (1982) where the earwig went into the ear and brain?:eek:

    Well, being a closet Trekkie, I'm never going to admit to that! :cool:

    :bravo-009: Excellent, Kyle! I made a half hearted attempt to find that clip. I'm averting my eyes right now as they go in to the ear canals!:eek:

    :biggrin: The studio must be doing a good job of getting those clips pulled down. I couldn't find an english version, but I kind of like German (I think?)!

    No, but I do remember a Twilight Zone show in which an earwig went into the ear/brain and laid eggs which then hatched and ate their way out. I have nightmares about that from time to time, and its been a good 40 years since I saw it.

    Kyle, I think that the clip in any language works...and for me, since I do not speak German, I think it's even more ominous not understanding the words...just the visual is enough!

    Sue, I feel for you!
