take one and pass them on
Seeing this reminds me of this comic from Gunshow Comics:
Hello, may be know this big bug?
Sorry! I just noticed you tagged me to ask me this… Your Click Beetle looks like it’s an Eyed Elater, Alaus oculatus. I believe they are the largest of the click beetle family- but your photo is kinda fuzzy- if it has two big black eye spots that is definitely it. Otherwise, it’s a close relative in the same family. Click beetles are so called because they can *click their bodies into place when turned upside down and they catapult themselves quite high!
This is actually some species of Buprestid beetle. The pictures are a bit blurry and from the wrong angles for me to get any more specific than that.
let’s get down to business
we will kick some buns
did they send me sugar
when we need salt, tons?
you’re the saddest bunch we’ve ever fought
and you all laugh weirdly too
mister I’ll kick your ass
'fore we're through!
on your boat a forest
and zombies, within
once we find their…

According to Rick Vetter, a retired entomologist from the University of California–Riverside, medical conditions that may be mistaken for a recluse bite include: bacterial infections, Lyme disease, fungal infections, viral infections, various skin disorders, ulcers, and skin cancer. Doctors, Vetter says, often make a “garbage can diagnosis” by saying a red mark or lesion is a spider bite, which means the actual problem is left untreated.
So, how can you tell whether those itchy red splotches or sores came from a spider? There’s no way to be certain, Vetter says, unless you catch the spider in the act.
However, he adds, one clue is the presence of multiple bites. “Spiders rarely bite more than once.” If you wake up with many welts, it is more likely that you have bed bugs, fleas, a bacterial infection, or something else entirely. “People need to give up on the spider nonsense. They just don’t bite very often.”
Part Two of my exploits as Steampunk Thor of the Steampunk Avengers at Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo. I meet wonderful people in equally amazing costumes there.
Behold! Part one of the pictures I took as Steampunk Thor at this past Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo. I had a lot of fun there even though I was there for one day and worn/tired at the end. I was amazed/pleased from the attention I was getting compared to my fellow Steampunk Avengers.
