It is to laugh! this is a really funny topic...heehee...okay, seriously now--

I've certainly never seen a moth act aggressive...I've had both moths and butterflies lick my hand when they land on me--how could a moth bite? They don't have mouth parts that would work for that, do they?

moths are essentially the sex organ of the caterpillar. They live to breed and dont even have suitable mouth parts except as a proboscis for some sap sucking. SOme species, such as all the silk moths and the Luna moths have no usable mouth parts at all.

Now look what you've done....your first post was all, "listen to me, I'm a credible science-dude with all science-y information and everything" and then you add that killer moth nonsense, and there goes all your credibility...

Now you just know Google is going to be flooded with searches like "killer death's head moth choking spooky" and variations thereof.

....I already did one myself....

Well, now! It's just got to be the supreme arrogance to call a moth aggressive when it bites you. How do you suppose it felt upon being picked up by someone your size?

c-cat.
I actually watched Nt Tresure II twice. There were lots of gimmicks and maguffins , I Love that stuff. It was very tightly editeed, you could see that some shots were done at different times than the preceeding shot.
That would probably give Lightwizard a stroke.
Overall, the story was quite preposterous, however I loved it. Like theres one caper, critical to the movie , that entails moving a party venue to Mount Vernon. They are a little thin on detail as to how this was accomplished but if we suspend belief, its a great ride.
Its an homage to "North by Northwest" in a sense, but remember. THERE IS A FINE LINE BETWEEN HOMAGE AND FROMAGE.
This one gets real close.

as far as i know - and that may not mean anything :wink: - GOOGLE is trolling the internet constantly trying to find any subjects that MIGHT (!) be of interest to google users .
some years ago google hired a highly placed german math-scientist to help them develop formulas to automatically evaluate any internet info and have the system decide whether it should be included in google .
of course , you can also "buy" yourself into google , but i believe most of the info is the result of "trolling" - without bait .

anyone have the full story on this ?
