Why do people hate spiders? That bothers me...
They've been villianized in our culture, same with snakes and wolves.
Some individual spiders can be aggressive but they’re more likely to want nothing to do with us and hide...
Definitely. A good example is that "giant" camel spider in Iraq. When that misleading pic went viral the rumour was that they come charging at you at night while making a little scream lol. Poor guys suffered many a GI's boot because of it.
They’re not even spiders lol
Solifugae... Entirely a separate animal...

Yeah, they're more elongated, almost like a scorpion without claws.
As a kid I was always flipping rocks over, fascinated by insects and even had an ant farm lol.

They’re actually an oddity in the invertebrate world, nothing like them... Whip Scorpions and Vinegaroons come close though... I was never allowed “exotic” pets as a kid that’s why I’ve got so many now lol!

The poodle fucks with snakes when he finds them. I suspect he'd like to play with wolves, but they'd only see an easy, if small meal.
Dogs are always pulling us into the drama. I'm in the woods when me and my dog see some cubs, then, the mother. She drops her head, gets that look and it's time to go.
My dog? No, it's time to stand our ground, bark and intimidate a black bear.

Nuclear explosions are the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.
They purified the land from all evil and good, and of course, lifeform.

Now I sound like maggie faggart. :D

So lately I've started taking melatonin to try to get my sleep re-normalized. I've noticed that since then I've been having truly bizarre and extremely vivid/realistic (at the sensory level) dreams. I thought the melatonin was causing it, but it turns out only indirectly so. I've been experiencing what sleep specialists refer to as "REM rebound", where the better quality of sleep means you dream longer and "better"(?)

It's a little disturbing, which makes it fun.
Sounds fun! I love crazy dreams lol.

I've debated trying some melatonin too, my sleep is shit. Has been for 2 years now.
When I was working I had the same recurring dream. Always about work, but even though I had a highly technical job the dream was a wandering story of digging around in a fenced yard of dirt. These days my dreams are varied stories of pleasant and frightening scenes that I can't imagine in waking life. If I could remember them I'd write a book.
The first few nights I took melatonin, I had been reading "The Prince and the Pauper" by Mark Twain. I kept having a recurring dream where everybody, myself included, was talking in (Mark Twain's rendition of) Elizabethan English.

I want to see a world that doesn't have any definition of race, religion or whatsoever.

For the sake of humanity..

Let's stop judging at people based on their race.
We are all human.

That might a pipe dream because the world is already like this.
If one nation one culture is the only way to keep the peace, let's keep it like that.

The last thing I wanted to see that my offspring suffer because of our childlike rationality that "one is superior to another"..

While humans are humans, we all still have primitive instincts and one of them is to defend our clan or tribe, it’s a strong instinct, so well, never going to happen. The bipedal hominid is a war like creature, always has been always will be.

And I would like to find a big sack o' money today.

We're not all the same so that would be living a lie with nothing worth fighting for or anyone with the courage to do it, full of fake smiles and glazed over eyes like idiots in a trance.

Natural selection is based on competition between racially similar tribes.

Would you pay $15 for a pack of cigarettes?

That's how much they cost here now in most places.

My neighbor next door, nice kid, a little too chatty, engineer at the shipyard I worked at. Anyway, this week I've seen him very friendly with 3 different really stunning girls. Either mum was right that I should have gone to college or he has a really impressive schlong.
