I like the casual-dehyde 8)
I'm truly sorry, but I can't keep explaining this simple thing to you over and over again hoping that you'll finally understand something so simple and obvious.
I'm not the "Dumb-Ass Whisperer".

I really, really hate anti-semantics.

What is the worlds smallest wasp?



Shown, at the same scale, next at a paraamecium and an amoeba.

Thus little bug lays its eggs inside the egg of another insect, the thrip. Thrips can be as small as 0.5 - 1mm, so their eggs are minute.

Called Megaphragma mymaripenne sounds like it is a tad misnamed!

Not much danger about this one attacking your jello sandwiches at the picnic!

And here's the world's largest wasp



But your sarnies are still safe, this one's name includes its favourite lunch, it's the tarantula hawk wasp.

Several thousand species in between.

We think Irma was big, this is the stormy "hexagon" at Saturn's north pole - it could swallow the whole Earth!

If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.
“Religion is a culture of faith; science is a culture of doubt.” ― Richard P. Feynman
'It is said that your life flashes before your eyes just before you die. That is true, it's called Life.' - Terry Pratchett
Remember, your inability to grasp science is not a valid argument against it.

Reminds me most of the psychedelic portrait that Richard Avedon took of John Lennon.
