The Spiders who conquered the world
They knew the Earth was round and the Oceans could be traversed long before the Conquistadores, before the Vikings, before anyone.

This is why I keep a moat full of spiders around my house, rather than a water moat - because the spiders can just sail right over water.

There's so much cool science stuff about spiders at the moment :D
#SpiderSunday   #Science   #Spider  
Some spiders can sail quite adeptly and use lines of web to fly through the air, allowing them to travel large distances across water, researchers find.

Camel Spiders - their jaws are so cool they warranted their own study
Or maybe someone just has too much time on their hands and specialised too far, but either way, this is totally fascinating.

Camel Spiders range in size up to 20cm long, though there's over 1000 known species, and they're technically not spiders. And they can run up to ten miles per hour - which is faster than I can run!

So a group of researchers set about studying their jaws, which are complicated enough to warrant 80 different named parts.

Super interesting!

These arachnids' jaws are so big compared to their bodies, scientists use them to identify new species

If only spiders could talk. Would this one say, "oooo pretty little flower. I want to wear this one!!"

Or... "muahaha.. if I look like a flower, those juicy little bugs will land right in my MOUTH."

Not news, but cultural history
One day we will look back at this moment as history, not news. And we will scoff at those who opposed it for being bigots on the wrong side of history.

Finally: a law that hurts no one, but allows love and equality.
As the ripples spread across the world and same sex marriage becomes normalised and legal, this is only cause for celebration.

Those who disagree are welcome to shut up :)

The reality of the law is that it doesn't force religious institutions to perform same sex marriages. 
Just that same sex couples can get married - at city hall if no church or other house of religion will do it (and let's be honest - under the law, the legal marriage has no bearing on what building it was signed in, or who was the officiator; religious houses are irrelevant).
A Jewish couple can't walk into a baptist church and demand a Jewish wedding. and they wouldn't try.
Nor would Jewish people cry out that McDonald's should be prohibited for allowing non-kosher foods, and that its very legality is an affront to their religious rights. 
Likewise, Rastafarians would look kinda silly going around saying that the Catholic Church being allowed to give wine at communion should be illegal, because it's against their religious belief.
This is the point of separation of church and state. 
Everyone has the right to religious freedom and believe any crazy thing they like, and everyone has to obey the law, which is a separate entity. 

End of story.

Tarantula!
And while we're on the subject of fascinating spider science, check out this awesome article about tarantulas. 
This guy's the size of a dinner plate! And she just wants to snuggle

#spiders   #science  
We think of tarantulas as great big hairy spiders that can kill a human with a single venomous bite. Just, no

I got cares in the post!
The family you choose are the best family. Especially when they send chocolatey treats from Switzerland. (Even shipped in a special insulated package; very Swiss!)
I love you guys, come home soon!

That's about the only time I've used ADA - I defensively Jarvis portals sometimes, or we jada to build up level. And innoculating at anomalies.

+Valdis Kletnieks under 3cm would be little. this one is really really tiny. less than 1cm across!
I don't think of them as "big" until they can help me move furniture.

Children's picture book about same sex marriage
Of course these days every hot topic gets an informative picture book addressing the issue for little kidlets.
But this one is gorgeous. An Australian author has written a children's book about a little girl with gay fathers.
It's a small step, but normalising same sex marriage and LGBTQ issues, especially for the next generation is how we move forwards, and this ceases to be an "issue" and just a part of life.
Like women being allowed to vote.

blind people can't tell hair colour. I wonder if there's a children's book about that.
