View Full Version : I have officially attained nerd status...

... according to my sister.

So I figure I can mostly cancel out my being a bigtime Chemistry-studying nerd by doing other "cool" things... sports, rock 'n' roll, mass alcohol consumption, etc. Nobody'd suspect a thing.

However, apparently my newfound hobby has propelled me into ultra-nerd status, possibly to the point of concern.

It all started when I got a new digital camera and the first thing I decided to take a picture of was this little itsy bitsy spider (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v603/Wildbetty/Spiders/Bathroomspider.jpg) in my bathroom and it turned out fucking cool. Then whenever I'd find a spider, I'd make a point of photographing (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v603/Wildbetty/Spiders/Bigspideroncarpet.jpg) it (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v603/Wildbetty/Spiders/Pancakerockspider.jpg) . REALLY (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v603/Wildbetty/Spiders/Hugehallwayspider.jpg) COOL (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v603/Wildbetty/Spiders/Spideronbedroomwall.jpg) .

So on Sunday I went out with an old friend to the waterfront in the deserted downtown core of my hometown. Smoked a joint and then decided to sit in this triangle dome thingey. (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v603/Wildbetty/Spiders/IMG_0700.jpg) Holy shit, this place was spider kingdom. There must have been literally at least a hundred, if not a thousand, of the little eight-legged creatures in this place, crouched in their webs, waiting to dangle down on their silky threads and land on your shoulder. Needless to say, in our current condition, it was fucking freaky. We didn't stay there for very long.

That night I dreamed of giant, flying spiders everywhere in my house and garage and yard for what felt like hours. They were SO FAST and they FLEW. It was terrifying.

I had to go back with my camera.

So tonight I dragged my sister out there and I documented the spiders for a good half an hour. The people walking by must have thought I was a total freak. But the photos turned out really awesome because it was dark out and most of them were in these beautiful webs. The only tricky part is that it was harder to focus since the wind was blowing the webs around and it was dark. But I got some seriously fantastic photos, here's a little sampling, courteously hidden behind links:

Number 1 Close Up (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v603/Wildbetty/Spiders/Triangledomespider.jpg)

Spiders look awesome. Though while camping, I ran out of the tent at about 3.30AM screaming and yelling in my boxers because of HUGE spider in a corner of my tent. I was staying at the family-part of the camping. That was kinda embarrassing.

My people traditionally believed spiders in house used to bring good luck so they did not kill them. I can't say I find spiders cute or interesting, but at the same time they don't scare me and I don't scream or freak out when one is crawling somewhere on me. Plus, our spiders are harmless and don't even bite.

Okay, just kidding. And dude, that's a cute hobby, unique but definitely not weird or geeky to me. Happy spiderspotting to you. I think that's a pretty neat thing to collect, because while it's not exactly useful, it's capturing experiences you've had with spiders so it's not completely useless like collecting Coke bottles or buttons (nothing personal about buttons, but at least you took the pictures yourself and saw the spiders with your own two eyes).

In the meantime, if you want weird, plz come visit my room and all the Indian film DVDs that're just all over the friggin' place.

Wich could be the productive thing to do. Otherwise, collections can become a ritual of attachment to useless junk.


On spiders, i get the damn shivers and muscular contractions when i unexpectedly bump into one.

This is the Phoneutria spp., the brazillian Armadeira:
http://www.ib.usp.br/ceo/images/phoneut.jpg

It's very aggressive, venomous, and shit scary. It's usually almost the size of a hand. It behaves like the one they cage in a glass at the movie Arachnophobia - You take a step towards it, and it turns to you and arms itself, like in that picture. And fucking jumps!

So, there's a swamp next to my university's students dormitory, and theres a focus of armadeiras in there. My cousin lives there and he told me about his unpleasant encounters with those, inside the dorm. I'll try to take a picture of one next time i get there.

Sim, I don't know if we believe spiders are good luck per se, but the superstition is that killing them will bring bad luck, or rain maybe? I don't pay too much attention to the superstitions, I mostly don't like killing them just because of the squishy feeling/sound.

My most terrifying spider experience is when I was younger, maybe 10-ish, and we were in the woods and decided to take a "short cut" with my family and we ended up getting lost in this total swamp. Then I looked down and right on my chest there was this massive orange and white striped spider. I screamed. Scarred for life.

Sanni, I will not deny that the Bollywood hobby is probably much nerdier than this, ha. I have had numerous silly collections though, that I've never really gotten rid of. I collected foreign coins (cause you can't just throw them away!) I used to collect beer caps pretty avidly, still can't always resist the urge to pocket them when I see them lying around. I have a Samuel Adams cap on my desk beside my laptop right now that I pocketed. I think the biggest problem with that is that they'll all end up rusting.

A couple technical issues about your post (yes, I'm nerding out here).
1. spiders aren't insects... so they're not really comparable. I personally am not afraid of any insect other than wasps, but I am not a fan of spiders or centipedes.

2. Bees can only sting you once, and are very, very non-aggressive. They will only sting if trapped. Anything that can sting multiple times, and attacks without being instigated is not a bee. Wasps are the ones that are usually responsible, and are lower in the evolutionary tree. They're not in the same order as bees (or is it class?), and the reason they are so deadly/ferocious is because their brains are very underdeveloped. Bees are smart and know how to discern for themselves what to sting... wasps and other such "bees" are told by the queen to sting everything, so they do. Plus, bees have weak stingers that can only sting once. Most bees die after they sting a human, because their stingers are weak and either get shoved into the bee's organs, or are pulled out and left in the human's skin.

Regardless, wasps would be very dangerous on a plane... especially if people were allergic to them. But they would freak out if they were enclosed in a plane, and would start going mad and stinging everyone...

...and betty, you can officially stop feeling like a nerd. :-P

If bees are higher than wasps on the evolutionary tree then I find it highly amusing that they evolved into such pussies. How does it make any evolutionary sense to go from being able to make multiple attacks to only being able to make one pathetic suicide attack? Apparently bees evolved into Muslims.

Oh, and insects are certainly comparable to arachnids. How the hell could they not be comparable?

Llamas
08-31-2006, 10:34 AM
as for the insects/arachnids thing... I just pointed it out cause someone said "I hate spiders" and he said "the only insect I hate is the bee"... but whatever, I was just being nit-picky.

The stinger on bees compared to wasps... well that's completely different. Bees have a more complex bodily structure than wasps. Wasps are small and dense and have less going on inside them. Bees have more going on and are more delecate, plus they evolved to be a more passive creature than wasps. The stinger didn't evolve... it's the same ol' stinger... their bodies just changed.

"Bees (a lineage within the superfamily Apoidea) are flying insects, closely related to wasps and ants."

"Bees, like ants, are essentially a highly specialized form of wasp. While the first definite fossil bees date from only forty million years ago, there is genetic and partial fossil evidence that they evolved alongside flowers, at least 140 million years ago."

Even ants are higher evolved than wasps... ants and bees ftw ;)

A worker bee lives over a month

Unless it encounters a situation in which its life is in jeopardy and it needs to defend itself, at which point it commits suicide. Besides, life isn't about living as long as possible. If it is then we're inferior to some damn turtles.

And the lifespan of a worker bee isn't really all that important since it's the colony that matters.

well, the colony consists of a queen, drones that live about a day, and worker bees.

plus, the AVERAGE lifespan of a worker bee is over a month, and the AVERAGE of a wasp is 2-3 weeks. Wasps are dumb and start shit with things they can't compete with. They sting any carnivorous mammal, they're pretty much gonna be dead. I saw enough wasps start shit with my dog. She could probably make an entire diet off wasps that stung/tried to sting her. Since bees don't go around stinging everything, they aren't attacked very often.

Sin Studly
08-31-2006, 12:59 PM
No. The wasps that kill people here are exactly the same as your wasps. We even call them the 'European Wasp'. I think in Europe they're called yellowjackets or hornets or something.

The only reason they're lethal is because they don't die off in the winter, like they do in Europe. Which means their nest ends up 3-4 metres across, and they get massively overpopulated. At which point something sparks in their tiny little brains, and a huge population of them fly off and go on a killing rampage, and sting any living thing they find over and over and over again until it dies.

Naturally, when we see one of them flying around we all go apeshit and drop whatever we're doing and chase it around and say "omg omg omg EUROPEAN WASP omg omg omg!" and follow it until we find the nest, and then we have the council drive in and gas them like Jews.

And koalas aren't as bad as drop bears :P

And illovelamas, I don't give a fuck about evolution. The jellyfish is capable of killing me. The sheep is capable of making a tasty main course. I know which one I consider more advanced.

I love insects. Last year I worked in an entomology lab. I was in charge of the greenhouse. Basically, I grew and took care of plants for insects to eat. It was kind of complicated, because I had to grow the plants without any pesticide or anything, but I had to keep them free of insects while they were in the GH. Once they were in the quarantine lab, they were covered in insects for food.

I mostly dealt with parasitic wasps, aphid, lacewings, harmonia ladybeetles, fungus gnats, and one other thing that looked the same. I would just hang out in the greenhouse, not working, just watching the behavior of all the various insects. I also got to suck the parasitic wasps through a mouth aspirator. That was frightening, yet amazingly cool.

When i asked Goenka about the issue, he, pointing to his chest, said that we should concentrate on the anapana-sati (awareness of breathing) and pay attention to the air entering cold and leaving warm, and that if we were dedicated to this, we would liberate the obstacles of anxiety, anger, doubt, sexual desire and lazyness.

Preocupado, my understanding was that you're not supposed to put your being before anybody else's, and have consideration and compassion for all living things. so... uh?

and Sinister needs to pick on something bigger than his pinky finger. try an angry pitbull, for one. now that's a fight i'd like to see.

Kids at a tender age are sick and cruel?

So... be at ease.

Yes you did. Goenka hates you and he hopes you swallow a bee while trying the anapana-sati.

Pitbulls don't get angry. They only have three moods, murderous, quiet, and murderously quiet.

Jeez, I never thought my post would get such a fucking big reaction. I really don't know what to say except you're all WAY over-reacting if you're serious.

Yes, I can understand that, considering how utterly un-noticed your posts usually are. This is what it feels like to have people pay attention. I wouldn't suggest becoming accustomed to it.

Bundy's parents did nothing because they didn't want to 'over-react', too.

Hell, I'd rather have nobody give a fuck than what's going on now. I never meant to get the reaction I got

I'll have to get info on that Bundy later (for some reason the name doesn't ring a bell) since I gotta go, but what the fuck does it have to do with the current situation anyway ?

You never heard of Bundy? Hear you go: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_Bundy

Read all that and you should understand the relevance.

I just read the Wikipedia article about TED Bundy (as the Al Bundy your link sends to is a fictional character), and I understand he was one of the sickest persons ever to live. However, I have no intention of walking in his tracks. What the hell would it bring me anyway ?

Jeez, this situation is the biggest over-reaction EVER.

Attention, gratification, maybe even some weak substitute for love?

I really didn't dislike spiders that much, except the huge ones that go in my garage and backyard, but recently I saw that there is a brown spider that can bite you and have something eat your flesh. They showed a guy like that in the hospital, who had his calf muscle removed, because the flesh was eaten. So now I freak out when I see a spider or am very caucious.

They overreact, don't bother them! Just step on some more ants or something! You know what my brother did? I got some anti-mosquito spray you have to put on your skin, then because of some reason they cannot sit on your skin. Don't know if it burns like hell to them or if they can't breath, but they don't touch you anymore! So what did my brother do? He saw a stupid fat fly on the window that couldn't find a way out(they're very stupid). He sprayed that stuff on the fly and it immediately fell down and turned upside down, moving panicly with its legs. After a view seconds that piece of shit (it was big) died. That was very funny to watch, but keep in mind: I don't torture them regularly, now I've got a huge net over my window so they won't fly into the flat!

Simon, you're the only one that over reacted to all this.
