Little mayflies quickly live large

Mayflies are probably the most misunderstood flying bug. If you’ve ever spent any time around Lake Erie, you know what I’m talking about. Yes, they can be annoying, but they serve a purpose.

Today is: International Body Piercing Day

International Body Piercing Day is celebrated by the piercing and modification communities. It not only celebrates body piercing but celebrates Jim Ward, "the granddaddy of the modern body piercing movement," on the anniversary of his birth. It aims to continue Ward's legacy of piercing education and promoting safety standards in the industry. The creator of the day is not known, but some sources say it was started by one of Ward's friends. For many, getting a body piercing is an important part of the day, and body piercers and tattooists sometimes celebrate with client events, special promotions, and discounted or free services.
