    My friend's mother was bitten by a scorpion in her shoe she'd left on the porch to dry.

    Many decades have past since then, and I don't live near scorpions. But to this day, I always check my shoes before putting them on.

    Don't forget to check your bananas before eating them as well. Only eat them if they have less than eight legs. Just in case.

    Someone needs to put scorpions in chance's shoes at least once, so that his years of caution aren't wasted.

    Funny enough, ohio and Kentucky have scorpions. They're stupid rare. Little tiny ones with little to no venom and I rarely see them, but they exist.

    I've seen all kinda of crazy rare and undocumented critters here in ohio.
    Some areas have glowing earth worms that appear in some of the more hilly forested muddy areas. The people who lived there said they never noticed them in 20 years. They wriggled up to the surface enmass and gave off a very faint glow. You could see them every foot or so for hundreds of feet. It was like a worm apocalypses. Funny enough, when morning came, there was no sign of them except the ones we saved, and they just looks like regular dehydrated earth worms. I've only ever seen them twice.

    I've seen some weird bug that was the size of the palm of my hand that looks like a cross between a cicada and a grass hopper. Had the body of a cicada, yellow and gold, but with stubby wings, and the head features of a grass hopper with those creepy bulging eyes. It also made noises like a cicada but sounded more like a rattle snake and made randomly clicking noises. It scared the **** out of me cause it was ****ing huge. It was fast as **** too! Didn't expect it to get off the ground, but then it travels at mach 10 cause we scared it. It was so big, it looks like a small bird flying away for its life.

    And I've seen ants the size of of my thumb 3 separate times. Looked like the fattest hornet ever with no wings.

    Sounds like a periodical cicada. Instead of emerging annually, they come out after 17 years underground.

    Enormous swarms of flying adult cicadas blot out the sun and resemble a biblical plague.

    EDIT: they may be worse than scorpions in your shoes.
