Who knows, maybe in 30 years from now that spider picture will cost more than that.

I read about that a few days ago, and thought it was pretty funny. Did you read the follow-up story? Apparently, the guy sold the picture of the seven-legged spider for 15k on eBay, I think.

Am I the only one in the world who believes in natural selection anymore? Sometimes it can be a good thing...

Unfortunately, humanity has managed to effectively short circuit the process.
