No, but that's why I stay away from acid.

2wolves: No Shelob?


Ten foot purple wasps paralyze Shelob and then lay their eggs inside to eat her still living body from the inside.

As someone afraid of bees/wasp/striped flying things, I'll just leave this

"One moment, I'm loading wood into a trailer, humming something pleasant, and wondering what kind of homey stew I'll have that evening. The next moment, I'm screaming and wondering if there's any simple way to detach my own legs... I quickly formulated a plan that involved running clumsily, pinwheeling my arms, and shrieking like a frightened toddler. This did the trick and I was soon wasp-free"

It's been a long time since I tried LSD, and I'm not going down that road again.

After spraying wasp killer inside one of my eaves and hearing it go from silence to an eerie hum, I have no real desire to see these pictures. I've counted about 24 dead wasps on the ground but it seems I did not get the nest as they've become active again.

Jesus, do you really have to post stuff like this in the evening?!?!  People are trying to go to sleep here!  Thanks for the nightmare fuel, anyway.

Those are absolutely gorgeous. My favorites are the one covered in yellow pollen, and the red and black one.

Cool.  Use an endoscope to get inside pictures.

PacManDreaming: If you're seeing a 10 foot purple wasp trying to bite your head off, you're probably doing this.


I salute you for your choice in music, sir.

Regarding the headline, i have nightmares of exactly that at least once a week. Thanks for reminding me, subby

If it were ten feet tall, it would barely have the strength to move those mandibles and I would easily tear it to pieces with my mighty bone-supported architecture.

Yeah, there's some nightmare fuel in there.

Sounds a bit like a Patrick F. McManus book.

Feel like I just looked through album of Halo characters. Or maybe motorcycles.

Thanks. 20 years later and I still like listening to Radioactive Goldfish.
