It tells about the whole poisonous myth story at the bottom. Never seen a crane fly in the U.S. though. Poor critters getting their wings pulled off and all...

Posted:My brother worked as warden in a game reserve in Mozambique. Buffalo are very nearly bullet proof. He mentioned someone that got killed while hunting buffalo with an AK47! Apparently if a buffalo is charging you, you need to aim for the nostrils. When buffalo charge they put their head up (unlike bulls) so their nostrils (which are relatively fleshy) are in line with their brain. And its really important not to miss.

Posted:That's not a daddy-long-legs! That's some wierd yank bug.

A daddy-long-legs is the same as a crane fly innit?

Such as this one.

"The male genitalia include a pair of claspers which grip the female genital valves but in order to do so the males abdomen has to be twisted through 180."

Posted:for me, a daddy long legs is a kinda lanky looking spider-like insect. (mostly) harmless, like the rest of earth.

maybe the whole eating 8 spiders in your life time was taken from watching one person sleeping over a year or something, and they ate a couple of spiders then they took an average of some sort, god knows....
