I know some guys who came back from Nicaragua talking about bullet ants. Supposedly they are called that because, when one stings you, it feels like you have just been shot (and that pain doesn't even begin to diminish for 24 hours).

them's the ones you see on all the documentaries, where they basically knock the ants out with smoke and chemicals, dump loads of 'em into a wicker glove where an adolescent boy sticks his hand in order to prove his manhood - a rite of passage, furthered by how pissed off the ants are when they regain consciousness, and their penchant for biting anything within reach

Ya, Japan. It's the peninsula South of Mt. Fuji that has numerous hot springs. I hate those little jumping green devil bugs there.
That's what came up when I searched for it. Not that it is on my list of travel destinations, but I'll try to remember that if I ever find myself on the way.

Izu is also the place where the Ringu movies are based at.

That's everyday in some neighborhoods. The #1 thing any NE Asian or European looking person needs to know about Hawaii is.... you need to live in a good neighborhood.

It's a bit nippy and there's SNOW - everything is about to grind to a halt in these here parts.

We had a warm spell for a couple days (it actually got up to 50 F). Now it's more typical for this time of year: 14 F (-10 C)

We had a cold snap... was ~20 degrees cooler than normal, now it is ~10 degrees warmer than normal. I receive more enjoyment from the warm cycle of climate change.
