DC, Birbsite, WMATA 

live in the DC Area? Do you use ?

My colleagues and I on WMATA's Riders Advisory Council need help. There's still time to prevent some of the worst budget cuts coming in January.

Please visit wmata.com/budget, sign up to speak next Tuesday, email comments, or take the survey.

your voice really can make a difference! we have serious allies on WMATA's board for the first time in a very long time and projections are that they're saving 15% more than necessary.

pompilid spider wasp (A. architectus metallicus) with prey 

SPEAKING OF VERY GOOD WASPS OH MY GOD

i was dinking around taking honeybee portraits in my backyard an hour ago when here came this whole Auplopus architectus metallicus with a great big probably wolf spider, just look at this absolute unit of a pompilid whose daughter is going to grow up big and strong just like her mom, oh my *goodness* i am so proud of her!!!!!

man goes to doctor because he is sad. doctor says man should go see famous clown pagliacci. man says, but doctor, this joke is these days most famously told by an ignorant comic book fascist who does not speak italian and so is unaware that the 'g' in my name is silent

i haven't even mentioned teratocytes tbh

when microbiologists feel the need to give something a name that means "monster cell" you just know it's gonna be good

shitpost, lewd adjacent, furry/ovi adjacent, parasitoid wasp adjacent, wow this is some cw huh 

while a naïve observer of erotic furry art specializing in oviposition ("ovi") might, on cursory inspection of the field, draw the immediate conclusion that nothing of interest was to be found, a detailed examination of the field's tropos with respect to the wide battery of viral, endocrinological, and biochemical methods by which parasitoid wasps (especially Ichneumonidae and Braconidae, but not excluding Pompilidae, etc.) and their eggs and larvae induce favorable conditions for perinatal development in the environment of the reproductive host suggests that, despite no obvious evidence of relevant academic grounding among either the producers or the consumers who comprise the ovi art community, the genre nonetheless displays a startling degree of entomological sophistication. in this article,

yeah but check out this very good braconid wasp from the window the other day

very on theme for spook season despite that unless you're a wood-boring beetle grub she is entirely harmless

ok, i didn't know this

apparently the maidu developed very small arrowheads that were thought to only be for hunting birds until the tips were found embedded in the bones of elk and california grizzly

then in 1995 neurotoxin residues were found on some arrowhead specimens in a collection

the source: cellar spiders (the ones with the long spindly legs people incorrectly call daddy long legs)
