Another animal question.

I've noticed these little "tents" made of silk that have bundled up several grass leaves and stems. It's not that they're cut off or anything, but it's almost like a caterpillar or mite or something made a circle out of silk around some grass, tightened the circle, then made a tent over the bundled up grass. The tip of the tent seems to have a higher density of threads. Again, it's the UK.

I'm curious if anyone knows what these are? I've never seen them before, but then I'm pretty unobservant so whether it's something that's only started this year or I've only noticed it this year is a mystery. If I can, I'll get a picture of one tomorrow because the things are bloody everywhere right now, and I'm curious as to what's causing them.

... might be tent caterpillars? Idle check suggests they're more tree than grass but *shrugs*

E: Though better than a picture of the nest or whatever would probably be a picture of whatever's making it. Poking the things with a stick to see if anything comes out is a tried and true investigative technique that only occasionally gets your face covered in biting insects.

some caterpillars have gotten pretty invasive if it's large (from half a bush to entire hedges) webbed areas in green or formerly green areas it's probably them, small dense webbing in shadowy areas might be spider eggs

What happened to the movie recommendations thread?
Don't tell me it was caught up in a purge of somebody's posts...

I thought changing it to a more general thread would increase activity.
I guess I was wrong

Nursery spider or yeah some sort of pillar stage.
If you know you are unobsevant you can and seems like are noticing new things in your plane. Keep it up. Being observant is one of our best traits

Planning to eventually move out of Russia. Mostly to get away from the toxic social and political situation. The one question, where to? I think I'm avoiding the USA, but that still leaves lots of places with better life standards to move to...

Canada, maybe, or one of the Nordics? Provided you can get in, at least.

Okay so the event horizon was mentioned in an other thread. And it made me think. So simplified to layman's words, black holes are defined by being matter compacts so dense that they don't allow light to escape outside of them, right? So even at the speed of light, one wouldn't be able to escape from inside the event horizon, right?

But if you, theoretically speaking, had access to faster than light velocities? Then you could escape at that point still, right?

My GR/cosmo course was a while ago, but yeah, probably. I can't remember exactly how violating the speed of light would break the equations otherwise, but in principle it should be possible.

You know, possible as long as you can go superluminal. :P

The trick is to just convert yourself to negative mass. At that point, the intense gravitational field will fire you out of the black hole no problem!

Dating app:
Hey [me]! So tell me...what’s the quickest way to win you over? Asking for a friend 👀😂

My response was to laugh it off and ask after her studies. No response.

Question: was this an attempt to gauge immediate availability? I'm not overly concerned that she hasn't replied - I've no reason to think I'd either like or dislike her - but I am curious.

Most probably it was just an icebreaking joke.

Assuming that it was a real person and not some kind of bot, I think that you should have continued the joke for a while. Changing the subject so quickly could be percieved as humorless and/or rude, which I think is the reason why you got no response afte that.
