North Paulding High wants its students and staff to die. It's some kind of Stephen King novel, I think.

Did you know that the virus is going to simply go away, and that children are almost totally virtually totally immune to COVID-19? If you watched Fox News you'd get that misinformation direct from the president.

iNaturalist is doing the same thing, using the data and identifications provided by users to build up a knowledge base for IDing any photo put into it. It's worldwide, though, not Australia specific.

Because they're not spiders. They're arachnids in the order Opiliones, but not spiders.

I now know that Parasteatoda can detect a moving Drosophila at a distance of 15cm, and will drop on it to hogtie it and haul it back up. Spiders are so entertaining.

Pssht. But it's so far from both LA and NY! Besides, Chicago is only a simulacrum of a real city built by cattlemen and butchers.

Hey, Harper's -- one way to reinforce your thesis that Midwesterners are alienated and disaffected is to treat them like inhabitants of a peculiar alien planet. Way to practice what you preach!
