Bugs Me: A Republic of Insects Ever read anything by Henri Fabre? And I thought I thought too highly of insects! Some other thots on our eight-legged contemporaries on the planet:

" I always felt that insects are the general rule, and everything else is a special case." Paul Bystrak

"To a rough approximation and setting aside vertebrate chauvinism, it can be said that essentially all organisms are insects." R.M. May

"Bugs are not going to inherit the earth. They own it now. So we might as well make peace with the landlord." T. Eisner

Look. Don't touch. Then burn. (May cause blindness).Hogweed from Hell, another imported pest that can 'survive for 10 years after pulling it out of the ground'. Neat image here. No, this is not a Photoshop retouch. They really are that big!

Everythang a Big Bad Wolf Could Want. The Hood, going back... way back. See the version your momma read to you at bedtime? via exclamationmark

Walmart to depend on Net for electronic purchase orders. Oh joy. And as the W-World goes, so goes commerce in America, then the larger world. And great will be the fall thereof in the next blackout, and the next, and...

How likely is that? "Neville Ebin died in Bermuda when a taxi knocked him off his moped. A year later his brother was killed on the same moped in the same street by the same taxi driven by the same man and carrying the same passenger. And, best of all, in Massachusetts in 1965 Roger Lausier, aged four, was saved from drowning by a woman called Alice Blaise. Nine years later Roger saw a man drowning on the same beach, dived in and saved him. He was Alice Blaise's husband." More likely than you think.
