Or at least this one on my desk.

I saw it land on my monitor and fall to the desk. It landed on the desk upside down, flailing it's limbs in the air....

I sat watching it for a good minute and 40 seconds, until it did something amazing.


It completely stopped flailing, spread it's wings, and then used them to flip itself upright.

I've been flipping this bug over for the past 10 minutes and it now does this every time.

Did I just witness a bug "learning" how to turn itself over?

Did you crush it after?


No, it crawled up my lamp, onto the shade, and then flew into the ceiling fan with all of his buddies.

Do you realize you could be reported to the ASPCB and arrested? The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Bugs investigates every report they receive.

I highly recommend that you delete this thread and unplug your computer. I'm running a reverse 411 trace on your I.P. address as I type.

Until you've tried it with several ladybugs you cant tell, because they all might do that. But if your sad enough to find more ladybugs to test this theory on then you need to get a life.

It's no longer a Lady Bug. It's evolved into a Man Bug. Congratulations.

10 minutes flipping a bug over? You need to get out more.

I'm back from watching porn, so I'll answer a few questions:

1. The little bastards are everywhere in my house. Finding this ladybug on my desk isn't an odd occurrence. There are literally about fifteen of them on our ceiling fan and about seven dead on the floor below it. Why does this happen? I'll explain...

...the local tomato farmers have huge problems with aphids in the summertime. Pesticides are bad for the environment/food quality; so, what do they do? They pool their cash and release thousands upon thousands of ladybugs, due to the fact that ladybugs consume the aphids.

Well, that's all fine and dandy and I love tomatoes, but in the winter, ladybugs get cold....

...and seek shelter in our homes.

EDIT: After a quick Google, I've discovered that the ladybug that flipped itself upright was an older ladybug. It's spots were faded away, which is apparently a sign of age in ladybugs.

DOUBLE-EDIT: I've located a second ladybug and flipped it. This one recovered it's stability in record time, but used one of it's LEGS instead of it's wing.

Amazing!

It's only a matter of time before insects are the dominant creatures. Good thing I'll be dead by the time they evolve enough to overthrow humans.

Doesn't that sound a little sexist to you?

One time my cousin and I were at the beach and we found some ladybugs that were there for some reason, so we built a sand castle for them.
Then the ladybugs started having sex on top of the castle... It was kinda funny.

Dude, you sound like the kind of guy that spends all his life finding a new species of bug and winning a Nobel prize at the price of never getting laid. I salute you!

Well, if ladybugs really were smarter than they appeared, than it would have realized after ten minutes of you flipping it back over that using it's wings to propel itself upright doesn't work.

After all, it's going on ten minutes and it's still trying the same thing, which history has shown it that it doesn't work...
