Spider party!


Just another mundane spider update. This batch of babies are now 18 days post-fertilization, and they’re just rockin’ out in their dish.

I also got some good news: I was awarded a small in-house grant to pick up a bunch of supplies for embryo imaging, so that’s in the works. I ordered a few necessities today.

And now everywhere I go on the internet, ads for halocarbon oil pop up everywhere. Or does everyone get those?

    They will now.

    “…we haven’t had much mortality, either.” (from the video)

    That happens after you fit them with their widdle flame-throwers and rocket launchers and begin your takeover.

    Not directly related, but have you read “When you are engulfed in flames” by David Sedaris? There’s a chapter called “April in Paris” that I think you’d enjoy. April is his pet spider.
    “If I thought about her a hundred times a day, it seemed only fair that she thought about me as well. … Often I’d take out a magnifying glass and stare into the chaos that was her face. … I put it on a list of other nagging questions such as, What was Jesus like as a teenager?”
