How fly’s keep dry

Hey grit

Did you know that fly’s never get hit by rain? Apparently, raindrops push the air in front of them in a way that the waves indicate to the fly that they need to get out of the way. Hence flies alway remain dry. So why does it not work with us humans?

    Well Brit, I think that is an interesting question. Given that there’s so many maggots amongst us, perhaps we blew it! (Ummmm…will the Aussie humor get lost here or do you POMs know that maggots come from blow flies?)
