Millions of baby spiders appeared to rain down from the sky earlier this month in the Southern Tablelands in Australia. One resident described the effect it had on their home as such: "The whole place was covered in these little black spiderlings and when I looked up at the sun it was like this tunnel of webs going up for a couple of hundred metres into the sky."
Read that again and try not to let your mind implode from the Lovecraftian horror from it all.
The phenomenon is (terrifyingly) not that uncommon. Apparently the spiders "balloon" by throwing out sheets of webbing and use the winds to carry themselves around. When weather conditions are poor, none of the spiders go anywhere of course. But when the weather picks up again, they all leave in one terrifying hell-swarm.
Again, a salute to the brave (insane?) people who continue to call the continent of Australia their home.
Matt Stonie doesn’t savor his food, he demolishes it.
Five years ago, the competitive eater challenged himself to eat a massive burrito as quickly as possible, and he managed to do it in about 15 minutes, according to The Mirror.
To celebrate having 500k followers on YouTube, he recently tried it again and completely crushed his previous record.
“Burritozilla,” as it is called, weighs 5 pounds and is 18-inches long.
Watch him scarf it down in about 1 minutes and 50 seconds.
Stonie has participated in plenty of other food challenges in the past, which you an check out on his YouTube channel, involving pretty much anything you can imagine, including bacon, poutine, egge nog, Twinkies and marshmallow Peeps.
