I know that chick!
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

This Spider Makes Fake Spiders. But Why?

Quote
Scientists returned to the Amazon rainforest in December to collect data on one of their biggest finds of 2012: a spider that uses insect corpses and jungle trash to build big, spider-shaped decoys in its web.

But these Peruvian spiders, presumed to be a new species of Cyclosa, are not the sole sculptors of false arachnids. A second decoy spider lives in the Philippines, on the island of Negros. Finding two spiders that make such similar designs, 11,000 miles apart, has left scientists wondering how the behavior evolved and if the decoys serve as lures for prey or as an anti-predator defense system. The discoveries also suggest there may be even more sculpting arachnids.

You just have to know what to look for.

“The Philippine species and the Peruvian species, they both makes these decoys, but the architecture is different,” said entomologist Lary Reeves, a graduate student at the University of Florida who found the Philippine spider in March 2012. That spider decoy’s legs radiate outward from the body in all directions, while the Peruvian decoy’s legs tend to point downward.

Reeves was studying deforestation and butterfly communities on Mount Kanlaon, near the town of Murcia, when he noticed something odd along the trail leading down the mountain from his field site.

“I walked by this web with a spider in the middle,” Reeves said. “A couple steps past it, I realized it was a spider I hadn’t seen in the area before. I backtracked, looked, and saw that it was a decoy.”
The decoy was about the size of a half-dollar, constructed from debris and food carcasses, with eight legs radiating from its bulky center. It took Reeves awhile to find the spider that sculpted the false arachnid, but he eventually spotted it hiding in a pocket built into the decoy’s abdomen. It was just millimeters across, and well camouflaged by its building materials.

At the time, there was no way Reeves could know entomologist Phil Torres would soon find a similar spider in Peru, and that its artistic representations would crawl all over the internet.

In December, Reeves went to Peru with Torres to try to learn more about these spider-building spiders. The spiders live in an isolated patch of protected jungle along the Rio Tambopata, in the floodplain that surrounds the Tambopata Research Center.

There, Reeves and Torres and their colleagues spotted about a half-dozen of the spider-building spiders. The team photographed and measured the decoys daily, paying close attention to how the spiders rebuilt their decoys after seasonal rains turned them into soggy piles of web trash.

When we first moved into this house I'm in now, ten years ago, I killed a big ass spider in the master bathroom. He was probably as big as my hand. He was trapped between the bathroom cabinet and the bathtub; there's a space about eight inches or so wide there. That damn thing shucked and jived and dodged me, all the while his eight little beady eyes bored into me with the hatred of a thousand supernovas. I thought he was going to escape.

I finally stomped his ass, though. I still remember that after all these years despite having killed a few spiders here and there...that thing, it was like looking into the eyes of a condemned man. It freaked me the hell out.

Never saw another one in the house, fortunately. I think he just got trapped in there because the wilderness was claimed by our subdivision's additions. Well, except for that f*cking brown recluse that bit me a couple/three years ago. Other than that...no spiders.

NO SPIDERS, I said.
