That first "hairy cluster" of "spiders"... I'm pretty sure those aren't spiders. Those are those Harvestmen or Daddy Long Legs or what ever they go by colloquially, I've never actually known their real name. While 8 legged, I'm pretty sure they aren't considered spiders because their body is only one piece.

It's just a good thing none of them are unionizing or we'd really be in trouble. If spiders got organized there would be no stopping them.

At least until they'd need to pay union dues.

Police in Northern India made a startling discovery in a remote nature preserve near the Nepal border: an 8-year-old girl living “comfortably” alongside a troop of monkeys, according to a report.

The child was so acclimated to her simian lifestyle at the Katarniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary, that when the cops tried to rescue the real life “Mowgli girl,” both the apes, and the child — screeched at them, the Times of India reported.

“She was terrified of us, she could not speak or hear properly. She was surrounded by three monkeys. She had wounds on her body specifically on her elbow and one on her leg. She was wearing clothes but not very dirty,” Inspector Ram Avtar told Cover Asia Press, adding that the girl appeared to be abandoned by her family.

“She looked weak and was very hungry. We gave her some food to eat. She looked miserable. If we hadn’t rescued her she could have been eaten by other animals.”

The girl has been in a district hospital for two months — and workers are still trying to teach her how to communicate and walk with two legs, CAP reported.

“When she was admitted here she was scared of us and she was always cowling like animals, like monkeys. She had wounds on her body and blood was oozing. We took care of her, bathed her, fed her and cleaned her. She was suffering from malnutrition. She might have eaten what animals did. She gets angry sometimes and we have to calm her down,” Chief Medical Officer Dr. Dinesh Singh told CAP.

Doctors said she acts violently sometimes and for some reason, she also refuses to eat from a plate and will only eat directly off her bedsheets.

Video posted by the Mirror UK shows her thrashing across a hospital bed as she screeches like a monkey.

She’ll eventually be sent to the government’s child protection office, doctors said.

Whenever I see a photo of a bag of salad with a tree frog or something in it, I'm always a little jealous that it wasn't me finding it. The eight-year old in my brain would be thrilled to get a free tropical frog instead of just salad.

Russia building a Terminator, though they claim it isn't a Terminator because it's actually a Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research, and they say they're going to shoot it into space.

Actually it kind of looks like one of the failed Robocops from the second movie, or failed Iron Mans ... which was also from the second one.

There's probably a good amount of utility to letting a robot use any random weapon, rather than forcing it to use specially designed guns and ammunition. Something, something military-industrial complex is a tool of filthy capitalists.

Well, it doesn't have to be "specialty designed" ammo -- there's a billion types of ammo to choose from already depending on the caliber arm-gun they install. Adding fingers seems like unnecessary complexity and potential failure if the hands get damaged. But, hey, I'm not a war-robot scientist. Why not just give it a big knife to hold like the combat suits in Avatar?

You want your expensive robot to bring a knife to a gun fight? Smiley: dubious

To be fair though, I'm not sure why they would just use cheaply available human labor if that was the case. There's got to be some refugees who'd be happy to risk their life in exchange for a visa or similar.

Well this is a new one. Basically trying to profit from the stock price drop that would have been caused by killing off several key players after bombing the team bus.

The Article Gotham Needs wrote:
Warner Bros. and the theme park developer Miral are pulling back the curtain on Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, releasing new renderings of the $1-billion venture poised to bring DC Comics superheroes, Looney Tunes and Hanna-Barbera cartoons, and old Hollywood glamor to life in the United Arab Emirates.

Set to open next year on the man-made Yas Island, the theme park will feature rides, family-friendly attractions, a hotel, and live entertainment spread across six themed lands.

Visitors will enter the indoor park through Warner Bros. Plaza, a celebration of Hollywood’s golden age, while Metropolis and Gotham City sections will showcase the gleaming skyscrapers and dark alleys of Superman and Batman’s respective hometowns. For animation aficionados, Cartoon Junction, Dynamite Gulch, and Bedrock will feature attractions based on characters like Bugs Bunny, Scooby-Doo, and the Flintstones.

Yas Island is also home to a Ferrari theme park, a water park, Formula One racetrack, and a golf course, and it is the future site of SeaWorld Abu Dhabi.
So if you're looking for a place to see a movie, get mugged in an alley and turn your kid into a superhero, here's your chance.

Awesome Snacks, Vol 1 wrote:
Doritos probably isn't the first snack you'd think of when choosing something to chow down on mid-screening. After all, there's a lot of sound involved in chomping those chips. However, when it comes to Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2, it's going to be hard to choose anything else. There's going to be a limited edition bag of of the chip brand that does something special: it plays the entirety of Awesome Mix Vol. 2 - the soundtrack to the upcoming blockbuster.

Starting Friday, according to Billboard, Amazon.com will be selling the special bags that come equipped with headphone jacks, as well as the ability to recharge the player for multiple uses. While Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2 is has all kinds of other tie-in products like toys, clothes and clothing accessories ... and pretty much anything else under the sun that you can think of, this has to be the most interesting, and possibly the most sought after item once it goes on sale. And we can't blame anyone for scrambling to buy this weird thing.

As if Doritos themselves aren't tasty on their own, the fact that you'll own a copy of Awesome Mix Vol. 2 with purchase isn't a bad deal. Reading over the track-listing, which includes classic songs from ELO, Sweet, and Glen Campbell, the chance to listen to some classic tunes the package is pretty valuable. Not to mention, even if you're not a fan of Doritos, the chance to own a limited bag that plays the greatest hits of Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2 could lead to the procurement of a rare promotional item that any bigger fan would be happy to display in their collection.

Considering how most fans already have copies of Awesome Mix Vol.1, it's almost a given to pick up a copy of the Guardians of the Galaxy follow-up soundtrack. So naturally, brands like Doritos are looking to get their hands on part of the galactic gold that no one could have predicted the James Gunn franchise would turn into. But while this item is definitely going to be an exciting one to look out for, it's more than likely going to be in limited supply. So be sure to get onto Amazon as quick as you can, if you want to have any chance of grabbing one.

Yeah, we had one of the highest net migration rates in the country at one point around 2014-15 (like 6th or 7th maybe? memory fails me. I are old Smiley: frown...). Lots of young educated people fleeing the bay area mostly. Don't know where things stand more recently, but there's at least a little truth to it.

We'll see how many stick around after this year though. It's been tough even on the long-time residents. All is cold and wet. Smiley: frown

Naw I don't think it's that bad. On the plus side we got these great new guys who like to dress in black and they promised to get rid of the hipsters. They've even helped out by filling some of the potholes from this winter's storms. Good times are surely ahead.
