The name "house spider" is a generic term for different spiders including Chiracanthium inclusum, Badumna Insignis, Steatoda grossa, Parasteatoda tepidariorum, among others, so named for their repetitive four-on-the-floor beat and a typical tempo of 120 beats per minute. The species evolved due to selective pressure by Chicago's underground club culture in the late 1970s, as DJs began altering disco songs to give them a more mechanical beat.

Subject: Complaint about quality of copper in new CO₂ scrubbers

Why wouldn't a train break down in the single choke point of a major city (Hamburg Dammtor)

I will watch literally anything that does scifi without superheroes at this point

There's someone on this train who wears their mask below their nose and is coughing *constantly*

Does someone know a trustworthy firefox extension that does -> nitter redirects? I don't have an account and I am getting incredibly annoyed by how it doesn't show anything without login anymore
