Its fun listening to that song by Rihanna. Well speaking of stuff that is weird...scientists in Calinfornia observed the reactions flies had when a fly swatter came at them. They believe that the flies have some time of "quick-fire" instinct in which allow them to form an "escape plan" when they identify the swatter. Depending on the position they are physically in when the swatter is aimed at them they can identify a place they will escape to reposition themselves for take-off. So it seems that the fly can outsmart us. I just thought they were small and fast to move before we actually tried to hit our target. However to be more successful in hitting the fly just aim at the predicted direction the fly will move to once they see the fly. Thats right its easier to get them in the air than when they are stationary.
