    Well, it was real hard to get a balloon over my head, but I did it, and yes, I have to say, it is near impossible to bite the LOL inside wall of the balloon

    haha, i kid.

    and that clip, it's a setup, come on! do you really think 1. someone just happens to have a mouse in their house, 2. the mouse just so happens to find itself(without intervention) hanging perilously above a pitcher, 3. how many times have you witnesses a vft actually catch its prey while you are present, chances this guy and mouse being in the right place at the right time are 1 in a million...

    don't believe everything you see on tv/internet... however i do believe that it wasn't able to get out, and that the second clip shows what happens to a mouse in a nep pitcher, that's fact. LOL i wonder if PETA ever got word of this clip, hahahaha.

    great find though wolfn!

    The science still doesn't make sense to me. Why would you want to keep your victim alive for a thousand years? There is such a thing as the economics of carnivory. If you're going to keep your victim alive for that long, the economics of keeping that being alive for that long hardly makes any sense. Think of all the tissue necessary to hold a struggling victim, the chemicals to preserve and keep them alive, the enzymes to slowly digest them... It's more like the creation of someone with too many S&M dreams rather than a scientifically feasible creature. And the worst part... No cable TV in there. I feel for you, Bobba Fet.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. What would be the nutritional benefit of slowly eating a victim over a span of a thousand years? I could see maybe a month or two... but 1000 years? It would be eating a microscopic bite each day.

    Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

    Keep in mind it is fantasy it doesn't have to make sense, infact if anything gets too similar to real life a lot of people get all poo-poo about it (District 9). LOL

    right click on the picture you want to post from a website (not on your own personal PC), then choose "properties" from the drop down menu which appears, using your mouse select all of the text on the line called Location and hit the keys CTRL and C at the same time (this copies the location). Then click the icon here at the Terraforums called "insert image" above the message post text box, it will say "please enter the URL of your image" just click your mouse in the URL box and hit the buttons CTRL and V. This will paste the location of the image in the box. Hit "OK" and the image should pop up in your post.

    you shouldnt do it that way..because that is hotlinking and is morally wrong.
    you should just provide the link only, if its not your photo.
