"I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious."
~ Albert Einstein ~

So the question is, why are bugs attracted to lights at night, when, if they get too close, the light will likely kill them. 
Science says some insects navigate by light, so they are following what they believe to be the right path forward, 
and others are attracted to the heat in order to stay warm on a chilly night. 
Neither answer seems completely satisfactory somehow. 
     Maybe bugs, like humans rubber necking at a highway accident, just can't help themselves, 
and have to know what's going on over there. 

We don't always have to know why.
