According to reports, scientists have created a network of insect spies–insects with cameras and computer chips embedded in their bodies that send information back to computers. Several articles have commented on the stupidity of these experiments (along with expounding on a variety of conspiracies associated with insect spies), but I think it’s neato. Besides, didn’t we already see this in a movie or two? Everyone knows that once it’s on the big screen it’s real.
In today’s news of the weird, wild, and unusual (of which I love more than any other news), a company is selling
Dead Bug Funeral Kits, complete with 32-page eulogy book (poems and euligies written by children in the throws of dead bug greif), grave markers, casket, and seeds to pretty up the burial site.
As an entomologist, I always just pinned and displayed my short-lived buggy pets, but maybe this kit will help me create the insect-inhabited cemetary of my dreams!
