Those balls just looked like the dude had sneezed on the dish.
upon further reading I'm amazed researchers in Cambridge and Derby hit upon this factoid at exactly the same time
What are the chances?!
Cambridge should write smaller
I had the fright of my life when I walked around the corner in there the other day.
Crickets are brown
A grasshopper is active in the day and a cricket is active in the night.
Crickets and grasshoppers look similar, but there are differences. A big difference is that they belong to different families.
The grasshopper is an insect of the suborder Caelifera in the order Orthoptera.
Crickets, family Gryllidae, are insects somewhat related to grasshoppers and more closely related to katydids or bush crickets (family Tettigoniidae). They tend to be nocturnal and are often confused with grasshoppers because they have a similar body structure including jumping hind legs. The bugs of Caelifera usually have rather short antennae while Ensiferan Orthopterans have longer ones. This is a useful way to differentiate between the two suborders even if some Ensiferans like mole crickets have short, grasshopper- like antennae. Kingdom: Animalia
Food for reptiles innit.
Feeding my ex-girlfriend's brother's iguana was a rare treat. Especially when I dropped the box of live crickets on the floor and it broke open. CRICKETCATCHINGFEST.
Thats what I was worried about. Some kids were looking at them and I was concerned one of them would open up the box and throw them at me. They looked the sort.
I would freak out quite a bit if I dropped a box of crickets.
WORLD LEADER IN BOLLOCKS RESEARCH
All that matters is cock size, surely?
- i posted this too late:
Well done son, bollocks that account for 14% of your total body mass. If a human had balls of those proportions they'd be the weight of six bags of sugar, each.
Apparently this discovery has thrown accepted wisdom on the purpose of having big swinging sacks into doubt.
Take Chimps - female chimps sleep around with all the males in a group, and so the males have evolved massive balls so that each ejaculate has more sperm and competes, within the females uterus, against all the other males' sperm.
Now take Gorrilas - single males have exclusive access to loads of females, and have little pebbly bollocks. I wouldn't say that to their face mind.
With the bush cricket, however, it looks as if the reason they have big balls is so they can shag loads of birds in quick succession. ie they don't blow their whole load at once.
My girlfriend just sent me this link. Dunno what she's doing googling "massive balls" but there you go.
at which this guy (Vahed) was talking, but I couldn't make it. I don't think he was talking about balls though, unfortunately...
