Harmless Insanity

In 1860, 99% of all black people worked for whites. Today, 98% of all black people work for whites. You are enjoying a social illusion because you go to someone else’s restaurant, but you don’t own a restaurant yourself.

Lucihormetica luckae
…is a unique species of “giant cockroach” (Blabridae) which has been collected around the Tungurahua volcano in Ecuador. Lucihormetica luckae is noted among cockroaches for its ability to bioluminesce via two spots on its back carapace which are inhabited by bioluminescent bacteria. It is though that this ability evolved to mimic the appearance of the toxic click beetles of the genus Pyrophorus. It is also though that L. luckae might be the first known species to use bioluminescence as a form of defensive mimicry.
