    Don’t worry, you still have an indefinite amount of time to right your wrongs.

    Netizens and locals alike were stunned by footage of a Slidell, Louisiana, gas station falling prey to a swarm of mayflies.

    Thankfully, in addition to the gang of bugs not being related to Christianity's fifth trumpet, it also turns out that the swarm is virtually harmless and short-winded.

    In fact, fishermen should be thanking the aquatic insects!

    According to Entomology Today, the mayfly "hatch" is seen as a delicacy to many sport fish, to the point where they cannot tell the difference between a hook and their next snack.
