Crystal Light and Kool-Aid are also closely related, but they didn't evolve from each other now did they? Score one point for Jesus!

I wish they would have also taken 3,000 x-ray scans of a geology rock hammer to indicate scale.

I agree with Mango. Scale please?

We don't know if it could pass as a modern crab louse's cousin or a star in a 50's sci-fi classic.

50p is about 3cm ( just over 1 inch) in diameter; it's got 7 sides (I'm about 6.95, myself) and is worth almost $1. Come to the UK and check; you'll need 3 or 4 to ride on a bus - we've got loads of those too.

o.O; You have to pay 3 or 4 bucks just to ride on the bus? Holy crap.

Just tell me the size of a 10 pence piece and I'll multiply that by 5 (Tasmanian or otherwise -- does it matter?)

It looks more like a tick rather than a spider.

I'm glad those creepy buggers are extinct.
