    Nothing bad really. Itís not really summer till the cicadas start singing.
    In the really big years, it can be like the entire atmosphere is humming, not just when the bugs near you are singing, but the millions in the surrounding miles.

    I think the sound is pretty cool, too. That said I typically only hear them once a year when I visit Chicago in the summer. I can imagine it would get tiresome after a while.

    Those 17-year locusts (i.e. Cicadas) must have been around the year I was born, because I was a 17 year old Midwest kid when they came back. Like somebody said upthread, it sounds like everyone in town ran there lawn mowers at once.

    I remember the big song on the AM radio at the time was Hocus Pocus by a band called Focus. I remember we all thought it was funny (after smoking a bunch of low-grade Mexican ditch weed) to say ďHocus Pocus by Focus and the 17-year Locusts).

    I canít stand this kind of music now. How in the world did I ever think this sounded good ? ďThis is WLS in Chicago, Number One on your AM dial. Bringing you todayís greatest hits !) Every teenager in a 1,000 mile radius tuner into that station at night.

    36 states had higher death rate of Ď18 flu than covid.

    Thatís not a false flag. Unless you think the US released it on our own soil.
    Or maybe they did . . . .
    Waiting until way too late before shutting down NY and laws requiring nursing homes take covid patients (40-50% of deaths are in homes). Look up the Reichstag fire.

    Democrats were fanning the flames. Go to China Town, itís safe! Letís have Mardi Gras! Plenty of footage of Democrat leaders ensuring people all is ok in early March.

    Some are, there are many different species of cicadas. Most are just normal year to year, some or 3 or 5 year cycle insects. The odd think about the 17 year cycle ones is some times they just all cycle at one and so there numbers are overwhelming.

    Christ...so in 2018 some states, for the entire year, had higher death rates than in 2-3 months of COVID-19. Great, what's the point being made? that comparing apples to oranges isn't useful in this case?
    Damn shame, throwing away a perfectly good white boy like that

    Talking about COVID-19 like it's fait accompli is always a winning strategy.

    Haven't been tuning into this thread. I'm sure the Vitamin-D thing has been discussed? I've been taking 4,000 IU daily for years. Just bumped up to 5,000.

    Has anyone correlated the infection rates/locations to locations with lower sunny days yet?

    True. I did alot of research on this several years ago when I had a mis-diagnosed illness and they had me on chemo and then humira injections. It was crazy. I started to look into intensive Vit D injection therapies. It's pretty big in europe (surprise surprise) but they don't really do it here cause it's cheap and not manufactured by some giant pharma overlords.

    Everyone's body processes it differently. For some people just going outside often is enough for them. I did that for years and my vit D was still low, so the doc suggested taking supplements as well as natural sunlight. There are some people who need 10k daily to maintain healthy blood levels.

    Get yourself tested, but I would guess most people who do not take vitamins could probably benefit from 1-2k IU daily.

    I think we are starting to find that many many many people are walking around their whole lives well under a healthy blood level of Vit-D. Even people who are outside in the sun alot.

    Judging by the fact the death rate in Manaus, Brasil is sky high, and it is almost on the equator, I would say there is likely no correlation.
