speaking of gay's ruining marriage

The Guardian has this brilliant (that's how Brits describe things) info-graphic on the status of gay right in the 50 US states and the District of Columbia.  They also break the graphic down by different types of rights and geographical regions for a look at the nuances between states in different regions and the disparity between "LGB" rights, and "T" rights.  It's very efficient in laying out thing we already knew, the Southeast is still dragging it's knuckles around in the latter half of the 20th Century, and the North east is leading the way in pretty much every regard.

P.S. Of course they went with a rainbow color scheme.

behind the scenes of moonrise kingdom


A new species of spider was discovered in the suburbs of, none other than, Auburn AL. It's a relative of the tarantula, and a variety of trapdoor spider. What's it's name you ask? Myrmekiaphila tigris, or the Auburn Tiger Trapdoor Spider, in honor of Aubie. Personally, I think we just got ourselves an additional mascot.

Fun fact about how the trap-door spider got it's name:
The female of the species, which can live 15 to 20 years, spend nearly all their lives in silk-lined burrows, the entrance to which is hidden by a hinged trapdoor spun of silk and soil. The spiders wait by the door, feeling for the vibrations from passing prey then leap out to administer a venomous bite on the unsuspecting prey, which the spider then drags back underground.
If you ask me, that sounds a lot like Starla in her bedchamber at 90 dubz.
