Spiders and drugs

Spiders don't spin too well when mixed with drugs as seen in the study at this site
Neo-Slither (Snake fanatic mailing list) http://<br />

May you live in interesting times.

hehe I spun many a web like that back in my wasted youth

hehe whats really funny is that the worst webs are created under the influence of "legal" drugs (Caffeine & Chloral Hydrat)

It's totally interesting, and awesome looking to see how it effects them. I wonder how they ensure they will spin a web under the effects rather than just sit there though.

You wonder why they don't put all their minds together to find cures for cancer. But hey, loaded spiders are good too. lol.

I think they do the drugs and the picture is a discription of what they saw.
"A monk was traveling and came to a fork in the road. He stopped, looked at it and decided to leave it there for someone else to ponder, someone who may need it, for his own spoon was quite sufficient."

one thing to keep in mind is the alkaloids(drugs) in plants are designed to harm the insects that eat it(or the insects eat teh plant then the spiders eat them). a defence mechanism. and it appears that the most effective natural one is caffiene. that i find interesting. not marijuana or peyote/mescaline.

not surprising but interesting none the less

Only when the last tree has died, and the last river poisioned,
and the last fish caught
will we relize we cannot eat money.
