Science is crazy.

Posted on

Let me start by saying this: I'm not a scientist! I don't even play one on TV! I'm just a girl, writing this post, asking you to look at this crazy thing that I've only just become aware of.

EXCEPT IT DOESN'T ALWAYS LOOK LIKE A SNAKE. Ok, let me break this down for people who are like me and don't really know anything about nature creatures.

It like, turns itself upside down and puffs out its eyes and face and all of a sudden the harmless caterpillar will scare the bajeesus out of you because you're gonna think it's a dangerous snake.

But also some deeper questions too. Like, by what means does this caterpillar know what a viper snake looks like? Have they met? Does the caterpillar remember? And if they've never met, is it just coincidence that it happens to look like a scary and dangerous snake? Or some kind of crazy instinct summoned from deep within their soul?

  1. So yeah, this caterpillar's life is crazy! Isn't nature kewl?

    Yah, love nature and science.
    Not impressed! But only cause I am a dumb human!
