It's a Bug's Life to You and I

So txrad and I are sitting around after two bottles of wine watching Bill Hicks and we decide to go out on the patio for a smoke.

There are bugs here in Texas that will fly into doors, windows, walls, whatever is close to a light and knock themselves out, falling to the patio while waiting to regain consciousness and begin their pursuit of light again.

txrad asked me what they do when the sun is shining. Do they fly into it and burn up?

I said no. These bugs are more analytical than that. They realize the sun is more than they can handle and they hide from it. But bring on the little energy-efficient bulb at night and that's something they can wrap their little wire-like legs around..

Just my theory.
