    First and last time seeing them was in 2010, having them softly swarm the surroundings in the mountain forests, they're extremely cool!

    Coyote, you ask "can you imagine that a life cycle that lasts for nearly two years underground and only a month above ground". How can it is so difficult for us to imagine that and so easy to take their precious one month away and trap them. To make what? A lightning bug lantern?

    Luciferase. Lucifer as the base word. Bringer of light. What will be going into the quantum dot needle for future vaccinations and Digital ID. Possibly the mark of the beast. It is a quantum needle that is sugar based and will go in your arm and would not be able to be removed once the sugar dissolves.
