April 26, 2018

Note: Some Australian cursing, but his accent is so soothing is sounds like romance poetry.

This is a video of an Australian outdoorsman in Uluru, Central Australia demonstrating his technique for getting rid of a fly problem. Namely, eating one to scare the other flies away. SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER: It doesn't work. Like, at all. I don't know why I actually thought it was going to work when he was talking about it, but probably because I haven't seen a single roach in the kitchen since I left the carcass of the one I popped with my foot out in the open as a warning. You know, plus I only go in the kitchen with my eyes closed and feel around for the refrigerator because I'm sure they're all over the f***ing place and I just don't have it in me to deal with that right now.

Keep going for the video, which doesn't really teach anything except what doesn't work.

Thanks to hairless, who tried the same thing as I did except with a spider and now he's convinced its entire extended family is plotting against him, which they 100% are.

    Well, that was a humble brag. Did you see his tongue?

  • Jenness

    Every woman who watches this is going to notice 1) the tongue and 2) he'll eat anything. Pretty sure tourism to pest fly hell Australia is about to skyrocket.

    i don't know what went wrong. it works with seagulls on crabfishing boats (although it's illegal so you have to dispose of it before you get to port or if you see the coastguard coming or whatever)

    flies must be dumber than birds

    It also works on people.

    Eating a seagull deters others? Do they have to see you eating it, or are there implications?

  • asdfadfs

    some see you eating it, the rest see the tattered carcass you leave out over the next several days. hang it up somewhere
