Bored at the hotel, I decided to watch some TV and I happened to turn to the History channel for some different programming. And I wasn’t disappointed.
Four things I’d learn:
1_All locusts are essentially grasshoppers
2_But not all grasshoppers are locusts
3_when they travel, they flow with the direction of the wind….in other words, if the wind is blowing eastward….that’s the direction they’ll fly.
4_Locusts are grasshoppers…..transformed
a grasshopper is a solitary insect….living out its life on it own till its time to mate. When they do mate the female digs a deep hole and lays its eggs. The problem with this is…..they breed quickly…..to the point of over-population within a given area. When the over-population reaches a point where each insect is touching/rubbing against each other and a shortage of food is apparent.
A chemical is released within their body. Thus, the transformation begins.
_its wings become 25 to 35 percent longer
_its main body become more stout
_the head become a little smaller but more aerodynamic
_the body changes color
All this transformation takes 3 to 6 days……its natures way of saving the species from starvation.
And that’s the ironic part of it…..while saving itself, it takes the food of others, thus, starving them. (Especially humans)
But humans are no different……if man is in an area where starvation exists, over-whelming danger, poverty, war, etc. Anything that threaten him or his family he transforms and migrates.
