BadtotheboneBob's Trivia Question from Yesterday


How many spiders were named after the film 'The Big Lebowski'?


       Two                                                      Source


Two species of spider were named after The Big Lebowski film and The Dude character: Anelosimus biglebowski and Anelosimus dude        Source






Alan J was first, and correct, with:
   Two.



Jim from CA, retired to ID, wrote:
   2



Deborah said:
   From what I read here just one species.
  Until now I didn't even know such a thing existed. The education I get reading your page, Marty - thanks!




Adam answered:
   Hmmm...one? I'm certain of at least one.



Randall replied:
   ummm.... ZERO?



Marian responded:
   2



Dale of Diamond Springs, Norcali on a seasonal day! said:
   Two: Anelosimus biglebowski and Anelosimus dude (see below) are species of spider in the family Theridiidae. All specimens known have been found in the Udzungwa Scarp Forest Reserve, Mufindi District, Tanzania. Thank you for your contribution, Bob.




Lois Of The World Wide Web answered:
   The Anelosimus Dude/Lebowski are charming little cobweb makers, staggeringly inbred, living solitary lives, who prefer to be preserved in alcohol. Wiki made no mention of fondness for carpets.




DJ Useo responded:
   I threw a die & it came up "2". So, that's my answer.
  I hope I do better with this question than I did with the last big lebowski trivia Q.




BttbBob   , replied:
   Everyone who thought, "WTF!", when they read the question raise your hand.
  Well, let's see... Yep, that's everybody... Exactly what I was hoping for... Har!

~~~~~

  You should thank me, though... you now know something that none of your friends know - unless they read the E! page today, that is... or are really extreme 'The Big Lebowski' trivia buffs (they probably would know that 'The Dude' says "Man" 147 times according to the IMDb... but, there's not a dagnab thing in there 'bout these here spiders!)

~~~~~

  You have no idea the gratification I received from this exercise. Thanks, Boss!

An Anonymous Suggestion

New Guinness Record


The Mexican man who claims he has the world's largest penis says that women are too afraid to have sex with him.

Roberto Esquivel Cabrera, 52, told a local journalist in an interview that his 18.9 inch member not only scares women, but is a disability that prevents him from working, according to News.com.au.

Cabrera added in the interview -- which was picked up by the world press over this past weekend -- that he wants his manhood, which hangs below his knees, to be recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest in the world.

The World Record Academy reportedly stepped in after Cabrera's interview. Cabrera underwent an examination and had an x-ray done to confirm his shocking size, and it was confirmed as genuine, according to Mirror.co.uk.

Judge Supports

Sharia Law

A federal judge on Monday sided with an anti-abortion group in its challenge of a key birth control provision of the Obama administration's health care overhaul.

The decision from U.S. District Judge Richard Leon adds to the legal debate surrounding the law's requirement that contraceptives for women be included among a range of cost-free, preventive benefits offered to employees.

The 29-page opinion held that March for Life could be exempt from the requirement, known as the contraceptive mandate, even though it is a non-religious organization that opposes abortion on ethical grounds rather than religious ones.

March for Life, which holds annual anti-abortion marches in Washington, was founded in 1973 following the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade opinion that established the legal right to abortion. The organization contends that life begins at conception and opposes coverage in its health insurance plans for methods of contraception that it likens to abortion.

Wedding Bells Growing Quieter

Las Vegas

At the Graceland Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, an Elvis impersonator in a black jumpsuit croons as a couple walks down the aisle. Pastor Jean-Claude Chevalme pronounces them man and wife. All in 10 minutes flat.

The US desert oasis known for all-night gambling, extravagant shows and no-hold-barred boozing has for decades also been a magnet for couples from around the world who are looking to tie the knot quickly and cheaply.

The marriage license office in Nevada's Clark County is open until midnight every day, even on holidays. Weddings usually cost just a few hundred dollars.

But fewer people are taking advantage of the southwestern city's flexible laws -- 37 percent fewer over the past decade, in fact, as the number of Vegas weddings dropped from 128,000 in 2004 to 81,000 last year.

6 Sites Added To National List Of Historic Places

New Mexico

A 1,200-year-old Native American ceremonial site in northern New Mexico and the post office that served scientists following the Manhattan Project are among the latest locations to make the National Register of Historic Places.

Of the more than three dozen sites added to the list in August, six are in New Mexico.

It's rare for New Mexico to be recognized with that many in one month, but it is not uncommon for one state to have a high number of listings in a month, said Steven Moffson with the state Historic Preservation Division.

The Los Alamos post office is not much different from when it was built in 1946 as part of a multimillion-dollar civic complex funded by the Atomic Energy Commission to replace wartime housing used by people working on the top-secret bomb-making project.

Other New Mexico sites added to the national register this month include the campus of St. John's College, the oldest bridge designed for motor vehicle traffic in Santa Fe, a flight station in Grants that provided radio communications and weather data for transcontinental flights and the Gutierrez-Hubbell House in Albuquerque, which was once an important stop along El Camino Real.

Last Lunch Menu

Titanic

The Titanic's last lunch menu - saved by a passenger who climbed aboard the so-called "Money Boat" before the ocean liner went down - is going to auction, where it's estimated it will bring $50,000 to $70,000.

The online New York auctioneer Lion Heart Autographs is offering the menu and two other previously unknown artifacts from Lifeboat 1 on Sept. 30. The auction marks the 30th anniversary of the wreckage's discovery at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.

Abraham Lincoln Salomon was one of a handful of first-class passengers who boarded the lifeboat - dubbed the "Money Boat" or "Millionaire's Boat" by the press because of unfounded rumors one of them bribed seven crew members to quickly row the boat away from the sinking ship rather than rescue others.

The menu, which listed corned beef, dumplings and other savory items, is signed on the back in pencil by another first-class passenger, Isaac Gerald Frauenthal, who escaped on another lifeboat. It's believed the two men lunched together that fateful day in 1912.

History Museum Latest Target

Illinois

The skeleton of a massive mastodon, thousands of Native American artifacts and a giant shark could be the next casualties in an increasingly ugly fight over Illinois' state budget that has dragged on for months with no sign of ending.

The pieces are among millions held by the Illinois State Museum, a favorite stop for school groups and scientists looking to learn the history of a state that, millions of years before it went broke, was literally underwater.

Now Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner is targeting the 138-year-old museum and four satellite sites for closure, the latest in a series of cuts the former businessman says are needed to manage Illinois' finances as he battles with Democrats who run the Legislature. The move is also designed to put pressure on lawmakers by ensuring more voters feel the impact of having no state budget.

Among the first items to get the governor's ax were the state airplanes that lawmakers often used to make the 200-mile trip between Chicago and Springfield. Then low-income parents and seniors took a hit through cuts to subsidized child care and in-home care. Now the museum is on the chopping block, in a highly visible step that could either force lawmakers to the table or backfire on the rookie governor.

Conservative Family Values In Action

Michigan

Two Michigan lawmakers who had an extramarital affair engaged in numerous instances of deceptive and "outright dishonest" misconduct in an attempted cover-up, in which public resources were misused and constituents were treated with a lack of respect, an investigator alleged Monday.

The report by the House Business Office said Republican Reps. Todd Courser of Lapeer and Cindy Gamrat of Plainwell were "not credible witnesses" in interviews and found that wrongdoing extended beyond their relationship to improperly using state resources for political purposes.

GOP House Speaker Kevin Cotter, who requested the report, said hearings will begin Tuesday by a special committee to investigate the legislators' fitness for office. That could result in discipline, including the expulsion of two of the Legislature's most outspoken social conservatives.

The investigation found that Courser and Gamrat - in combining office staff and operations despite being from opposite sides of the state - "improperly and inextricably entwined political, personal, business, and official state matters." They had an office policy of entering constituent contact information into a private political database for Courser's potential congressional bid and Gamrat's failed campaign for Republican National Committeewoman, according to the report.

Nearly 5 Percent

University of Kentucky

Nearly 5 percent of students at the University of Kentucky say they were sexually assaulted in the past year, but most of the cases went unreported, according to a survey conducted by the college.

Officials across the country have placed greater focus on sexual assaults of college students, especially as a number of cases involving college athletes have been investigated or prosecuted in the last year.

In the University of Kentucky survey, released on Monday, the school asked students about unwanted experiences, using federally defined guidelines to include voluntary or involuntary incapacitation due to drugs or alcohol and the threat of physical force or harm. Using that criteria, 1,053 students reported such incidents, with most taking place away from the school's Lexington campus.

More than 24,000 students responded to the survey, including about 21,500 to the question about whether they were sexually assaulted, the school said.

Of those who could identify their assailant, nearly three-quarters of the attackers were fellow students and another 3 percent were university employees. Of all the cases that either took place at the school or involved another university individual, only 30 cases were reported to either campus or Lexington police officers, and 114 were reported to other university agencies.

Unstable Antenna On T-rump Tower

Toronto

Police have closed off the area around the Trump International Hotel and Tower Toronto because of an unstable antenna on top of the building.

Police say the closures will last until a city engineer confirms the antenna has been secured, which is expected to take until at least noon Tuesday.

Toronto Mayor John Tory has issued a statement calling for an investigation and saying he wants those responsible for the disruption to be held accountable.

The Trump Tower - a luxury hotel and condo that opened in January 2012 - is located in the city's financial district.

Secessionists Launch Petition Drive

Texass

A group called the Texas Nationalist Movement fanned out to 31 cities across Texas this weekend trying to gather the 75,000 signatures they say they need to get the question of the state's secession from the United States on the primary ballot next spring.

Texas is one of only two U.S. states, the other being Hawaii, that were once internationally recognized sovereign nations, with diplomatic ties to other countries. Although legal experts said it would be unconstitutional for Texas to break away via a primary vote, there is still a spirit of Texas independence among many in the Lone Star State.

"What we are seeing, over and over, is this complete disconnect between the people of Texas, what they want, and what is going on in Washington, D.C.," TNM President Daniel Miller told Reuters.

"The people of Texas don't have anything against the United States, they are just tired of being governed by bureaucrats we didn't elect pushing programs we don't want."

Do you have something to say?
Anything that increased your blood pressure, or, even better, amused or entertained?

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?

In other words, submissions are welcome.
