Yep, we're screwed

>> Friday, November 21, 2008

The space shuttle Endeavor's recent manifest included a school project in which two spiders were placed in a box to see if spiders can spin webs in space.

Now, it seems, there's only one spider in the box.

Obviously there are several possibilities--one of the spiders perhaps ate the other. It happens.

Or, of course, there's the obvious and pretty likely possibility that New York is about to be devoured by a nine-hundred-foot-tall glowing spider from outer space.


(Trained science-artist's science sketch of New York's horrible fate according to science, based on real science and looking at lots of spiders and other science stuff.)


Oh well. We're doomed for sure this time. Thanks, science. Thanks a lot. Still, might as well have a little song while we wait for ginormous gamma-radiated eight-legged death, shall we?

Where's my giant can of Raid?

Maybe Spiderman can begin some negotiations.

Wow, that's some AWESOME real science and scientific illustrating you've got going on there.

And don't worry MWT, the kitties will protect me.
