S 916 729 14 Owl City 28 mins Pryce great question I was the recipient of 1000 hugs from 10000 lightning bugs for a grand total of 10000000 hugs As the lyrics of the song clearly state the average layperson would not believe their eyes if 10000000 fireflies were to illuminate planet Earth nor would the average person conclude by natural instinct that 10000 lightning bugs acting as a collective group are capable of embracing a human being 1000 times without difficulty By the same token a gathering of lightning bugs in such vast numbers form a sort of swarm and a swarm can collectively surround a human and deliver a hug that a single firefly acting according to the dictates of his own conscience simply cannot Consequently l was embraced 1000 times by 10000 luminescent insects This may seem inconceivable due to the firefly's soft- shelled body which is common among all winged beetles within the Lampyridae insect family Members of the scientific community may be tempted to cast doubt upon the possibility of this exchange due to the immobility of the prothorax and pterothorax in addition to the elytra protruding outward while a firefly is engaged in mid-flight However I can testify to the accuracy of this exchange can furthermore add that while each individual hug took place each firefly participated in the chemical reaction commonly known as bioluminescence in which the enzymes within the firefly in the presence of oxygen magnesium ions and ATP emitted a chemically produced light or glow because they were happy to be hugging me Please don't hesitate to reach out with any further questions Stream Fireflies on Apple Music and Spotify owl city actually responded i'm screaming šŸ˜‚šŸ’€ httpstcoIDmBxMM8F1 Meme
