    Fun fact: Praying Mantiss leaps are hella impressive — hella being the scientific term — their jumps usually only taking a tenth of a second. Such impressiveness was recently captured in this 1000-frames-per-second bug-leap video, which may prove useful in the future of robotics.

One day you find the coolest book ever about insects, and it's only after you finish reading it that you turn it over and find it's part of a series of books "for boys." You are a girl.

  10. Three Dimensional Embroidered Bugs Are Less Icky Than Real Insects

    I'll Allow It

    It's a miracle. Textile artist Claire Moynihan has created insects I would touch willingly. She calls her technique "a ‘freestyle’ form of 3D embroidery which can loosely be described as stumpwork." I call it, really cute bugs on balls.
