Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

Just for the record...

This, right here, is why I will never move to Australia.

What am I talking about, oh lazy people who won't click a link?

Just a spider that is eating an f-ing snake, okay? It is a snake-eating spider!

Don't get me wrong- I grew up in Florida where we have a vibrant community of homicidal wildlife. I just don't want to deal with a spider that eats bloody reptiles,* okay?

That is all.


* Also: the males of the species actively commit suicide during mating: "In the process of mating, the much smaller male somersaults to place his abdomen over the female's mouthparts. In about 2 out of 3 cases, the female consumes the male while mating continues."

I was wondering how long it would take for someone to make that joke.

I think it only counts as oral sex if everyone still has their factory parts afterwards.

In all fairness, it was a pretty small snake, only 14 cm.
