This makes a Sharknado seem utterly pleasant
Even if the premise of Sharknado came true, it would be nothing compared to this real life funnel cloud monstrosity made entirely out of mosquitos. It’s a MOSQUITONADO:

Photographer Ana Filipa Scarpa noticed this phenomenon while visiting Vila Franca de Xira, Portugal. Though it looked like a funnel cloud, she realized it was actually a swarm of moving insects.
“It was a very high funnel swinging to the left and to the right. I pointed my camera and began shooting before it hit me,” Scarpa told io9. “But the funnel did not move toward me — and I thought it was so strange — so I got into my car and started to drive towards it, and that’s when I realized it was a mosquito twister.”
As she got closer, some mosquitos actually entered her car. She estimated that the swarm extended about 1,000 feet high.
Well, have fun with your lifelong nightmares, everybody.
