NASA announces spiders. From Mars.

I simply can’t imagine why they’d come up with that particular name.

No, wait, I can: (more…)

Scientists TORTURE GRASSHOPPERS, SPIDERS for SCIENCE! Well… global warming.

You know, I understand AoSHQ’s point that a recent study about grasshoppers and diet and what not is really about global warming: I do.  But I keep getting hung up on this:

They placed cages in areas of natural vegetation and allowed some grasshoppers to be alone while others were placed in cages with a spider.

They glued the mouths of the spiders shut in order to make sure that the grasshoppers experienced pure fear, but were not actually killed by the predators.

…and thinking, Damn, but scientists can be d*cks sometimes.  I know that science ain’t always pretty, but wow.  Does PETA know about this one?
