yes, i do believe the caps are necessary.
can anyone tell me what this is?
i know it is a bug of some kind – or maybe a dinosaur.
it it is almost as long as a roll of toilet paper!! (it’s hanging around on the screen outside the bathroom, in case you were wondering why we used a roll of toilet paper for scale.) and when i bumped the screen to see if it might be encouraged to leave. it peed. or perhaps it sprayed some kind of prehistoric deadly acidic poison that is right now eating it’s way through the screen. and it’s friends are hiding just out of sight ready to invade when a big enough hole has been burned in the screen for them to fit through.
you might notice that the pictures of the big honkin’ spider are still on my sidebar. c14 was brave enough to take him out, but he took one look at this guy and hightailed it out of there.
