The Hive: The Malthus Bug Thread
« on: April 12, 2013, 09:52:05 am »
I'm thinking of consolidating all my posts concerning bugs into one thread, entitled The Hive ...  Speaking of which, let's start out with this from Spain.

No trace of the owner of the house has been found ...  :hmm:

Quote
POLICE in San SebastiŠn de la Gomera have cordoned off an abandoned house after finding a seven-metre-long wasp nest.
Officers were called out by worried neighbours of the empty home in the island's capital and say the nest was in an indoor hallway and contained literally millions of wasps.

Experts have examined the nest, which is said to be 21'9Ē in length, and say the common type of wasp found in gardens would never normally build a nest of this size.

They believe it must be an invasive species of wasp which had migrated from Africa.

The Canary Islands are less than 100 kilometres from Morocco by water.

Authorities have been unable to trace the owner of the house.

If I was the cop who did the initial investigation - opening the door to find *that* - I'd still be running.  :D

Anyway, this could never happen in America. The local HOA would not allow it.

Though come to think of it, most HOAs are controlled by WASPs ...  :ph34r:

It wouldn't happen in most of America because, well, winter sucks for wasps.

It is far better for the truth to tear my flesh to pieces, then for my soul to wander through darkness in eternal damnation.

Faye: Ordinary. The kind of beautiful, dangerous ordinary that you just can't leave alone.
Jet: I see.
Faye: Like an angel from the underworld. Or a devil from Paradise.

I think I'll have nightmares for the next few weeks.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year oldís life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.

This is by far my favourite thread of the various someone's cats/kids/shitty politics threads.

Malthus's bugs > Barrister's kids. :P

Unless that was your garage I don't see why.

Though one wonders how a tarantula came in contact with a black widow's web. One has to suspect human agency.

The owner is "missing". How do you know it wasn't a success? :ph34r:

On the other hand, why do you think he's a hero?  :menace:
