Hehe, very cute. I love those types of school projects. Sooo much more fun than the research papers they'll be doing in a few years.

I had to rearead that. I thought it said you had to make and "insane project."

I think my brain is broken.

The fact that the night my mother went into labor, she and my father were at the drive-in watching the movie "Psycho" might explain it.

Interesting insects. Similar bodies, though. Is that a twin thing? (Just joking).
