So, who doesn’t love getting harassed by flies, nature’s pesky minions? Is there a better feeling in this world than being molested by a dozen flies in a warm summer afternoon? Well, I’m sure there is, but sometimes we just don’t have a choice, do we? Besides being incredibly annoying, flies are also extremely hard to swat. Why? Apparently because they’re not stupid at all, and they’re capable of calculating complex evasive routes in a matter of milliseconds. If you want to learn more about the findings of a scientist who’s been investigating the evasive maneuvers of flies, check this article – if you just want to get a suggestion on how to deal with flies more effectively, there’s quite a simple rule of thumb: always aim forward when trying to swat a fly; that way you’ll be more likely to succeed in messing up its calculations and thwarting its attempt of escape.
