Damn you, Zeke. Damn you.

Level 9 and pondering the Kinetic Molecular Theory of Gases to get to Level 10.

I passed level twelve! It took me about thirty tries, but I did it!

Speaking of thirty tries, it took me about that many to spell that sentence right. Ugh.

Zeke 04-23-2007 02:20 AM

It took me about twelve. There's not much skill involved in that one, really. It would take a genius to get a good enough sense of how all 60 particles are moving to formulate a strategy more complicated than "let's see if this spot works."

Two samples from the Partially-Clips-like webcomic Wondermark:
- How, I ask you?
- Any cat owner can vouch for this one.

This is Pretty Much Ocarina of Time, which is a Flash movie that I'm sad to say is a better parody than my fiver.

Zeke 04-23-2007 11:24 AM

Well they can't.

Zeke 04-24-2007 02:28 AM

And speaking of animals, they have pillbugs on the ocean floor.

THREE-POUND PILLBUGS.

ijdgaf 04-24-2007 03:27 AM

Those things are just dog gamned creepy.

That's the biggest pillbug I've ever seen! [/maxwellsmart]

Zeke 04-24-2007 05:19 AM

You mean second biggest, right?

Hejira 04-24-2007 06:43 AM

I think now would be a good time to point out that when I first saw the title of this thread, I totally had the wrong idea.

AKAArzosah 04-24-2007 07:42 AM

Me too, but I wasn't gonna say anything.

Nate the Great 04-24-2007 08:46 AM

Eww. And to think I changed my avatar right before that.

Zeke 04-24-2007 11:35 AM

I have no idea what any of you are talking about. You're all crazy. Get off the road.

Meanwhile, speaking of animals I found out about through that webcomic, here's the vampire squid from hell. Well, okay. To be more accurate, I should give its scientific name: "the vampire squid from hell."

Like other deep-sea cephalopods, Vampire Squid lack ink sacs. If threatened, instead of ink, a sticky cloud of bioluminescent mucus containing innumerable orbs of blue light is ejected from the arm tips.
If it were green or pink or orange light, I'd just admire it for being able to do that, but dude. BLUE.

I want one for a pet.

They taste just the same either way, of course.

Zeke 04-24-2007 03:39 PM

When I was a kid, we called 'em potato bugs. They have many names.

(Sigh. I still love that Pokey strip, but it was so much cooler before I knew that "master the possibilities" was an old MasterCard slogan.)

Sa'ar Chasm 04-24-2007 04:42 PM

I think we called them woodbugs. They're the little grey things the roll into an armoured ball when you poke them, right?

I did, actually.

There were a couple of PBS programs (either Nature or NOVA) that gave a good look at these critters. Very cool.

They do.


And a link contribution, for whatever it's worth:

The Rules for the Annual Roadkill Cook-Off in Marlinton, WV.

And they have a plan.

Zeke 04-24-2007 08:18 PM

Shyeeah, right. Their "plan" is completely ad hoc. They want to kill us all, except that they want to create a pillbug-human hybrid, except that they want to move to Earth. Their sleeper agents -- slater agents, if you will -- have no idea they're really bugs except when they do. And are we ever going to get an explanation for the giant pillbug in my head that no one else can see?
