Chad, you enjoy going through a bog with a canoe over your head? Wow you are hardcore. Thanks for the list, it was very interesting to read. If I wasn't so lazy I would do such a list myself!

hmm, i loved reading your list. maybe it will inspire me to write one of my own...

dayna: I like fishflies mostly because i only see them at camp, and they are pretty much a neutral insect in my mind, they dont really do much and i find that inspiring. not really but ill stick to it.
