    yeah, p. much. All they bring is failure and pain and unwanted progeny.
    True peace can only be achieved when we drive them and the fiends that posses them back into the abyss.
    Grab the pussy, and it throw it down a pit.

    I dunno how eager they would be. Go take chemistry courses in a uni and start pushing your own RCs.
    I used to buy and try them a lot, until I got blacked out by flubromazepam. They'll unlikely be as potent as the analogues of known illicit drugs though. God I miss 6-APB and MDPV.

    Yeah, spiders from the Nephilia family can be traced around the globe.. spiders can actually drift on their silks across continents, they don't even mind the (sub)pressure.. or getting frozen along the way. Spider silk was one of the materials considered for the space elevator..

    All these various kinds of zoanthid and palythoa look amazing, but they contain palytoxin which according to wikipedia:
    zoinks
    Makes you wonder why they're so freely available and why hasn't there been any deliberate poisonings. But hey, they're pretty to look at.

    Fuck, some of these look so tasty. The ones above probably taste like blueberry and cinnamon.

    I think I was reading about diving on TOW and accidentally stumbled upon it after hopping from page to another, kind of like how every wiki page eventuallly leads to Hitler.

    Here's a video of a Finnish zoo owner who seems to come along with his bears unusually well.


    Not like it's an ordinary fair here, to have a bear as a pet unlike in Russia.
    But seems like the best kind of pet to fend off burglars or pieces of human trash crossing the border from Sweden.

    it seems that some snakes aren't bestest pals either..

    6 300kg doggos.. it's ok! :D I read a book their decline in europe and it was really really sad to read.
    Kudos to the dude, they're truly marvelous creatures. These are especially social minded it seems.
    But I recently saw few pictures of shaved bears, and they look just like yao-guai from F3, scary af.. :D

    i started collecting meteorites a while back...
    this is a piece of gibeon meteorite. the gibeon meteorite fell in namibia during prehistoric times. the visual appearance is called widdmanstatten patterning. widmanstatten pattern is characteristic of octahedrite nickel-iron meteorites and shows the crystal structure (the stripes are long crystals of metal). usually to get the patterning visible they have to grind the surface down and then acid-etch it.
    i don't have a piece of gibeon yet, but i'm working on it
    [​IMG]
    when it's not ground down and acid etched it looks just like you think it would:

    At first glance that looked like a tiny modern art painting.

    I'm linking some shitty tabloid. But in future, clothes made out of spider silk could become commonplace if someone discovers a way to mass-produce it.
    edit: I remember hearing about this but couldn't remember where, looks like Radha beat me to it. You know the feels when EDF is your top news-source.
    Another feature which could be of use to mimic, is how spiders jump, as their legs are like hydraulic pumps. A jumping car would be easier to park.



    @feminist jazz hands Almost like a doggo, but I'd be careful to never surprise it by accidentally sneaking behind its back. Like here, one peekaboo and it'll fuck anyone up.
