What Spiders Do When High
In 1995, NASA engaged in some rather unique research: they funded a study to give drugs to spiders, then assessed the toxicity of each drug based on the shape of the web the spiders spun while intoxicated. (Can I get three big hoorahs for our tax dollars at work!)
What was the result? The spider doped up on caffeine wove his web into a crazy mess, whereas the one stoned on pot stopped spinning halfway through. I guess spiders aren’t all that different from us after all. I can only imagine what would have happened if they added Twinkies and Cheetos to the mix.
