Certainly an ominous common name for a plant. Coincidentally, last night at Barnes and Noble while picking up and insect field guide, I paged through a poisonous plants and venomous animals field guide and happened to come across this plant. Makes me want to go back and buy that guide too.

Have you ever read or browsed through Hatches II by Al Caucci and Bob Nastasi

....It is only about Mayflies but it is an incredible book. A little dry, it is very much a textbook, but the detail and photographs are pretty awesome.

Hatches II and Caddisflies by Gary Lafontaine are two books every trout fisherman should own (Unfortunately Lafontaine's book is out of print and has become somewhat of a collectors item).

EDIT: Here is the description of Hatches from Amazon:

Quote:
Book Description
Publication Date: October 1, 1988 | Series: Hatches II
The twentieth-anniversary edition of Hatches II celebrates the enduring value of this complete guide to fishing the hatches of North American trout streams. Chosen by Trout Unlimited as one of the most important fly-fishing books of the past thrity-five years, Hatches II remains the most complete book on the subject of mayflies and their identification. Hundreds of photographs depict the genera and species of the mayfly in all stages of its development, and the authors provide critical information on mayfly biology, tactics, presentation, and imitation. In fact, the Comparadun style of tying, with variations, remains one of the most important innovations of our time.
Special features of Hatches II include Quick Reference Charts for the East/Midwest and western United States hatches; discussions of the mayfly-trout relationship; stream and lab research; photomacrography; tying instructions; emergence calendars; identification charts; and a valuable phonetic table.

I have not, though it sounds incredibly interesting. Dry, textbook type books are my kinds of books. In fact, all I own are textbooks and field guides I'm definitely going to make a trip back to the bookstore and I'll check for that while I'm there. I doubt I'll find it, but if not I'll check online.

There was nothing stopping folks in the US from buying them.
Gosh, that doesn't sound real legal, but I'm not a lawyer!

What I meant about ~7,000 songs is, yes it seems like a lot, but it seems like a lot to like too. So it makes me wonder if people are just downloading stuff "because they can" or "because it's there" more so than because they genuinely like it and want it forever.

In my case, I have ~1,400 songs, but they're all songs I really like and want to listen to. Even my favorite artists, if they have a 12 song CD, maybe only 4 to 8 songs will make it to my ipod.

I havent one regret about that entire summer.

No, it's an indication that a revolutionary movement in the world of music took place in the 1960's, and the bands successful in that movement carried the day though much of the 1970's.

And if we're really going to have a conversation about a recent "lost decade" of music, it should begin and end with the 1990s, especially the latter half of the 90s when every band sounded exactly the same.

I hate Friday mornings. My work computer runs 8000 scans at once and it becomes excruciatingly slow and difficult to get any work done.

All of the CDs I downloaded I legitimately liked the music. I listened to 1-3 songs and said I wanted to hear the rest. Trust me, there was plenty of stuff I had no interest in wasting my time with. Of course, I don't know if others would do the same.

I think I remember this...Let's see if I'm right.

There was a European band already called Blink (Swedish, IIRC?) and so they added a number. 182 is how many times the F word appears in Scarface.

on the 4 heading uptown from BK. I was trying to get to 59th and Lex. to transfer to the N and I woke up right before the Atlantic Ave/Barclays Center station. I got out and got a cab for 30 bucks since it was almost 5am.

To make things worse someone jacked my ipod.

the 90's were a black hole of suck. the 2000's and 2010's have been pretty solid. just have to ignore the mainstream filth.

I've done the same thing (twice) but in reverse. Drinking midtown east, coming home downtown on the 4/5 and ended up in Brooklyn @ 3am+.

It's something like that. The number has to do with a word being used in a movie but don't remember which word or movie.

Quick research says Cowbell was right with it being the F bomb in Scarface but the band was Irish. Close enough.
