Amazing. On the second one how/why did they form it?
It appears they can climb up the wall and upside down on the ceiling, so why not just attack from the ceiling? Is it because they had to carry food back which is heavier and they risk falling off under greater weight or just saves time? Be interested to see how that formed. I loved how they self reinforced that u-turn area. Assuming two separate lines dropped and then they joined in the middle. Did it keep breaking in the middle and through trial and error they succeeded or is it group knowledge (i.e. from historic trial and error) and it worked first time? How did the length of the drop be determined? And is there an engineering calc that would determine they are pretty accurate their innate know-how is? All questions we can't get an answer for here unfortunately.


They can't carry the load (presumably wasp eggs) if they're walking upside down.

Sometimes the phrase "pick on someone your own size" is equally valid as a warning as it is an admonition...

I remember how long it took for the local liquor store to get rid of the smell after the Christchurch quakes.

Still, I got a great deal on some wine with damaged labels that had been soaked through after sitting in the broken mess.

Why? I could be wrong, but she appears to be holding a small animal so has perhaps gone in the save it from a similar attack.

I did wonder that as well. Although I think it's less likely as you would expect the response to have been while she was trying to catch it.

It's not a goat.

And yes, it looks like the dippy bint was trying to carry off a lamb.

She's carrying a lamb and kicking sand at a sheep that's presumably going into instinctive defensive mode. Judging by how she looks I've prejudicially decided that she picked it up so she can get a photo with it for instagram, in which case I'm all in favour of the sheep on this one.


I've just come back from holiday where people like her routinely ignore safety/restriction signs and instructions to take selfies delaying others while staff have to try and deal with the fuckwits.

I was wandering around a museum with the GF recently on a weekend break and we saw this couple in one of the rooms. She was decent looking, fairly dressed up and had the full face of makeup, lip filler etc. She was posing in front of random photos and pieces of art and striking ridiculous poses, pouting etc, while her dutiful boyfriend got photos from the best angle and lighting. Then he'd hand her the phone and she'd review the pictures.
Then they'd move off to another art piece and repeat the whole process. It didn't look like they were "enjoying" the stuff on show at all. Although I'll accept that enjoyment is subjective and maybe that's how some people enjoy cultural stuff, by focusing on themselves in front of it.

It was comical to watch, but utterly bizarre to see that level of self absorption and narcisism in the flesh.

according to the OP reddit source, she had picked up that Ewe's lamb, for whatever reason...

Meanwhile, in Nevada:

Jesus, the synthol in his arms. :lol:

Also, that's not a slap, that's just a stiff arm to the side of the head.

Yep this. There was this dressed up woman snapping away herself before we boarded the shuttle for an hours ride to the airport. Feck me if she didn't spend the entire hour looking at those selfies x(
