“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Only in Australia, a snake-eating spider

This must be animal day on TRR or something. This is a Giant Golden Orb spider eating a freaking brown garden snake! Holy crap!

What is it with animals in Australia? They're either the most poisonous, the biggest, or the weirdest on Earth. I'd like to visit one day, but with all the perils that await in the wild, maybe I'll just go to Ruby Falls in Chattanooga where it's relatively safe and the worst that can happen is I slip on a wet rock and plunge 300 feet to my death on the jagged rocks below....at least it's better than being eaten slowly by a spider.

I don't know if you know the truth about Ruby Falls. Sadly I do. It is named after a woman named Ruby. They shine a red light on the trckle of water to give it some hint of color. But EVERYTHING in the caves looks like tan sheetrock. If you want to be thoroughly disappointed then go. And I have made it sound better than it really is....seriously
