Quote from: dissolute ocelot on May 30, 2022, 11:00:48 PM(Speaking of barn owls.) Body lice (which live in clothes) evolved perhaps 100,000 years ago when clothes were invented, decended from head lice (which live in human hair and presumably lived in hair of other hominins, and are closely related to a chimpanzee louse).
QuoteThe nocturnal African dung beetle Scarabaeus satyrus is one of the few known non-vertebrate animals that navigate and orient themselves using the Milky Way.

Quote from: gilbertharding on May 31, 2022, 10:33:40 AMI'm sure someone (me?) has posted about lice on this thread before. Something to do with the idea (which is bunk, by the way) that pubic lice are becoming endangered by the supposed fact that the most promiscuous people are also quite likely to have removed their pubes. I think there was another connected 'fact' which made fun of the idea that head lice and pubic lice were different species - which one evolved first, and how did they diverge? Dunno...

Quote from: JesusAndYourBush on May 31, 2022, 12:17:49 PMI had a similar thought yesterday that 1000-2000-ish years ago House Spiders were all like "Y'know, these caves are a lot more cosy than they used to be!"

Quote from: famethrowa on June 24, 2022, 09:51:04 AMThe rear wiper on my station wagon (estate??) stopped working, I went on google to see how to fix it and found a whole subculture of boy racers based around the phrase "delete rear wipers". Apparently it's a thing. I did not, I fixed it with superglue and bicarb.
