Awwwww that's a Garden spider and those are awesome.

It's probably freaking out because it can feel its entire web shake when he yells at it.

I have a fascination/revulsion thing with spiders. And just that description is making me wait for a couple/three days to read the article.

I wonder how many of those would have to be shaved to make a spider hair coat. I'll just archive that away in the Uncle Fester Files.

Fun fact.

Itching powder is made of spider hair, because the end of each hair has a hook, like Velcro, so when it gets dumped down the back of your shirt, the hair hooks into the shirt, and then orientates the hair to itch you

So probably not a good idea ;)

I know from experience

I'm thinking these guys aren't really statistical math majors. They are assuming because they go to a remote, mostly undocumented area and discover 2-3x the species in that area than were previously documented (poorly), that this must be the case across 100% of every continent. That's not how it works. By that thinking, because it was really cold here last winter, it must be really cold everywhere. Or because Chicago is really densely populated, every square mile of the entire planet must also be very densely populated. Like with no mention of population averages taken over the course of a decade we have to assume these guys just suck at stats.

Statistics are ALL bullshit. You can make them say whatever you want them to say. Far too many bad correlations are made by the use of statistics. I'm not saying there is no place for statistics I just don't rely on statistics alone to guide decisions.
