    Same. That's all I've got so far is arm soreness. I'm hoping to crank up those side effects to show that my immune system is working, but not so much that it really makes me feel bad.

    Hey do ya'll ever think about how when caterpillars make a cocoon they turn into soup and then reassemble the soup into a butterfly and how absolutely wild that is?

    Imagine just getting into a sleeping bag, going to sleep, liquefying into soup and then you get out and you're hot.

    Crazy.

    I wonder what caterpillar soup tastes like?

    Well, you're not hot. You turned to soup, there's a specialized organ you were carrying around the whole time who used the you-soup to grow into a whole new critter. Since your brain was one of the bits that turned into soup and the organ grew a new brain to replace it, I'd argue that the butterfly is not the same entity as the caterpillar in the same way that twin siblings are not the same entity.

    What's really wild about it is that after turning into soup and coming out as a butterfly they still remember things that happened to them as a caterpillar, and no one understands how.

    How do we certify that a butterfly “remembers” things that happened to a caterpillar?

    I’m asking this in a very smarmy way but legit question, I’d be fascinated to hear about whatever experiment they devised to verify a caterpillar memory, let alone that a butterfly remembers it later.

    Without knowing what studies 3clips3 is referring to, it's probably a conditioned-stimulus kind of thing. Sort of like Pavlov, but with larvae instead of dogs.

    They have the researchers say very mean things about the caterpillar and then see if the butterfly writes about it in its journal

    I hate moths. Big ole moths like Lunas and deaths head are cool. But every other moth can go die. Especially the tiny little fuckers.

    They used to get into my room at night and would constantly fly into my eyes and mouth because I guess I am extremely white and the light from my phone illuminated my round face and their little internal light based GPS units would direct them right at me thinking I was the moon.

    okay so back in olden times when bugs were real big it was because there was way more oxygen in the atmosphere, right?

    so whaaaat if you made a biodome and filled it with plants and also pump a bunch of oxygen in and then just kinda let some bugs be bugs out there

    do you think they'd get bigger as generations passed?

    do you think they'd get real big?

    because I can think of worse reasons to own a greenhouse.

    I watched a video of a ladybug eating aphids. the aphids sat there while all their buddies got eaten, then continue sitting there while they themselves get eaten

    aphids are real dumb

    I have a story about pollinators that happened yesterday. I'm still upset about it
    I went out to water the flowers on my deck and I saw a couple of native bees on one of the plants. "yay!" I thought, "not only bees, but threatened bees! I'll wait to water until they're gone". One of them did look a bit odd posturally, but I didn't pay too much mind, bees do weird shit sometimes.

    anyway I came out a bit later and I saw one of the bees off the flower, on the dirt near the edge of the planter, curled up and looking dead. But still kind of moving? Ok that was REALLY weird so I took a closer look and realised that underneath the bee was a fucking spider*, eating it.
    If it hadn't been a native bee I wouldn't have cared, my deck spiders are usually friends. But FFS couldn't you be eating, like, a fly or something??

    hopefully there are more bees around.

    *(possibly a jumping spider, after some googling, which normally I like. But leave my bees alone!)
