I suggest making sure the lid is tightly closed and you sleep with one eye open tonight. :ninja:

Seems a bit strange though they gather like that.

I would really be careful. Mine do that all the time. I've had them open the top and quite a few have escaped. A single opae no big deal, but in numbers it's a problem. :laugh:

Interesting pic and at the right timing. Does the sun or light shine mainly on that side?

@opae ula related, nope, i dont think it is about the light but i have no other clue as to why they hang out at certain spot as a group like that :smile:

When you mentioned this the first thing I thought of was the saying from the movie iRobot
"There have always been ghosts in the machine. Random segments of code, that have grouped together to form unexpected protocols. Unanticipated, these free radicals engender questions of free will, creativity, and even the nature of what we might call the soul. Why is it that when some robots are left in darkness, they will seek out the light? Why is it that when robots are stored in an empty space, they will group together, rather than stand alone? How do we explain this behavior? Random segments of code? Or is it something more? When does a perceptual schematic become consciousness? When does a difference engine become the search for truth? When does a personality simulation become the bitter mote... of a soul?"
