    Okay, Iggins.
    2/3 of the office girls are hired.

    Exhibit A: 5'2", about 170 lbs, late 20s, typical slav, with darker than average hair. Super powers: good english, wears hats. Weaknesses: unknown.

    Exhibit B: 5'10+", over 200 lbs, mid-60s. Super powers: knows all staffers, skilled in gossip, possesses a secret key ring from her days as guardienne/janitor. Weaknesses: bad english, might be inclined to serve as informer, money problems.

    I take it you'll be shipping me some starlet for her 2300/month?

    Breakfast over, and I'm back from the store where I was buying makings for Greek salad. The weather here is amazing at present, warm, sunny, balmy; so it's fire up the Egg this evening and have grilled lamb steaks, home grown baby eggplant, and Greek salad. Nom!

    When we returned from picking Mrs Puff up from the station yesterday, we drove into the driveway and there, bold as brass, under the "car port" was a bird of prey with... Something. We backed off a bit and it picked up its dinner and flew off. We found a massive pile of woodpigeon feathers in the front yard, one of those less is not going to hurt :) Anyway, s/he didn't fly off too far, and retired to the bushes under the apple tree. This morning s/he was STILL THERE! and had come out onto the lawn just near the tree with his or her "breakfast". I got a good look with binoculars (and mediocre pics which I will post in a while) so I could make an identification as a Peregrine Falcon. How cool is that?

    eddyatwork:

    Hey Edward, are you familiar with the jewel wasp (Ampulex compressa)?



    Now, like the majority of wasps, the jewel wasp is a parisitoid. That means it lays its eggs into a host animal, and the eggs then hatch and the larva consumes the host.

    In the case of the Jewel wasp, the host is a cockroach. But the fascinating part is how the wasp preys on the cockroach.

    First off two wasps have sex. Then the fun starts. The fertilized female now goes and tracks down a cockroach.

    When she finds a cockroach she strikes, biting the coackroach and stinging it in the thorax (between the first pair of legs). The venom paralyses the roaches front legs, allowing the wasp to make a second sting into the coackroaches neck.

    like so



    This second sting is far more precise and takes close to a minute. See, what the wasp is actually doing is steering it's stinger through the different tissues in the coackroaches head capsule until its finds the coackroaches brain. The wasp has specilised sensory organs on the tip of it's stinger which let it very precisely navigate through the cockroaches head and depositing venom in two very specific spots, the supra-esophageal ganglion and sub-esophageal ganglion.

    That done the wasp flies off and looks for a burrow. The venom starts working on the cockroach and the cockroach starts obsessively grooming itself. Not moving at all, just grooming itself.

    this lasts about half an hour and around then the wasp comes back. This is when the venom really starts kicking in and turn the cockroach into a full blown ZOMBIE. The cockroach won't try walk or run or do anything. It's completely zombified

    The wasp now amputates the cockroaches antenna and drinks it's heamolymph (the insect version of blood) for energy.

    Once she's done drinking, the wasp bites down on the stub of the antenna and begins walking the cockroach like a dog on a leash



    It's important to note that the cockroach's abilities are not impeded at all. The cockroach can walk and fly perfectly normally, it's just completely zombified, like it's free will is completely gone. and the wasp leads it to it's burrow.

    At the burrow the wasp lays one single egg on the cockroach (Edward, if you look at the front leg, you'll see the egg. it looks like a grain of rice)



    the wasp then seals the burrow, locking the cockroach inside, and flies off to go do wasp things

    inside the tomb however, the cockroach just sits. and sits. After about two days the egg hatches and the larvae chews its way into the cockroack. Once inside the larvae beings to eat the coackroach from the inside out, leaving the nervous system for last. Eventually it eats the cockroaches brain, and the cockroach dies. The larve then pupates inside the cockroaches corpse undergoing metamorphosis until it finally breaks out of the coackroaches body as a beautiful adult jewel wasp.



    isn't nature fascinatin Edward?

    dude was fucked up, lucky for him i carry a military grade trauma kit with me. was able to use my quick clot and hemorrhage badge to get the bleeding to stop. cops got there 15 minutes after that, then 5 more minutes for the ambulance.


    guy would have bled for 15 to 20 minutes longer if i didn't show up with my gear

    Good for you. That's a wonderful memory to have, and deed to have done.

    Yesterday a guy on a motorcycle got run over by a schoolbus that ran a red light. Guy fucked up his leg a bit, went to the hospital. The Harley didn't even look scratched.

    Yikes. Even had the helmet held, his brain probably would have been mush from banging around in his skull.

    And yes, this is yet another reason we need some sort of national public transportation.
