    So, the UM-Morris will be the first university with an Arachnateers Club, for your researchers?

    There’s a Japanese show where they ride armoured spiders. Their catchphrase is “Arachno-Power!”.

    I’ve watched like, one episode, and it was pretty terrible. Has a catchy theme tune though.

    “Eleven-year-old Hunter Steel searches for the legendary inner world by following instructions in his grandfather’s journal. He enters a cave where he finds a mysterious manacle attaching to his arm. A spider startles Hunter, who falls into a hole to the center of the Earth and into the subterranean world of Arachna. There, he discovers a small group of elite warriors struggling to survive and to save Arachna from the attack of Invectids, a race of insectoids. The warriors are children, each fighting with the help of their own 10 ft (3.0 m) battle spiders. They call themselves “Spider Riders”. In the English TV series, the ages of the characters were reduced. There is a prophecy that says a surface-dweller or Human, like Hunter, will bring disaster to the Inner World. Sparkle mentions it in the beginning of the TV series.”

    #7:timgueguen — I’m afraid when I was a kid, I was skinny and gangly and bobble-headed, with a buzzcut. I’ve since fled that look and gone in the opposite direction, and I’m sorry to say it didn’t help at all.
