The sequined (or mirror) spider has silvery patches covering its abdomen. Because the speckles reflect and scatter light, they may make the spider harder for predators to see. Amazingly, the patches with change in size depending on the spider’s level of agitation.

Didn’t realize how much I missed doing academic work till I started working on these graphing/coding spreadsheets and, after a brief period of wanting to rip my hair out, was overcome by a sense of calm. Yay neuropsychology.

Cold fall air.

Music.

Slow steps.

Organization.

I am not a body.

It turns out that the mother of one of the families I’m babysitting for is a neuropsychology adjunct professor and needs immediate help collecting and coding data for her cool EEG study with bilingual children and now I’m her part time research assistant and will stay up until 1 a.m. each night so as to help her code ~60 hours of data per week and this makes me very, very happy.

An 85 ton dinosaur existed and this makes me very, very happy.

I am drinking my fourth cup of coffee today and this makes me very, very happy.

Timothy Ferris, the writer of the Hayden Planetarium Space Show Dark Universe script, produced the “Golden Record” and talks about it in this video.
