Quote of the Day

April 11, 2007

“One Dutch researcher estimates that there are some five trillion spiders in the Netherlands alone, each of which consumes about a tenth of a gram of meat a day. Were the victims people instead of insects, they would need only three days to eat all sixteen and a half million Dutchmen.”

– Burkhard Bilger, “Spider Woman” (PDF – The New Yorker. March, 2007)
