She felt “threatened.” It was a “tense” situation. It helped her book sales. Yes, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is quite the little story teller.
It’s basically the same story as told in D.W. Griffith’s classic (and socially execrable) 1915 film, “Birth of a Nation.” It played well with the conservative crowd. The story of the poor little blond white woman being threatened and harassed by the big bad Black man.
And just like “Birth of a Nation,” Jan Brewer’s story was largely fiction, if slightly less racist. Times were different in 1915. Well, except in the Governor’s mansion it would seem.
But man, did it give her book sales a kick in the keester!

Ben Hoffman buys a collector gas can (yes, a can designed to hold gasoline) on Craigslist, but that's almost beside the point. The beauty of "The Craigslist Interviews" is that the sellers' stories are more priceless than any collectible. This week's edition magically transforms into an elegiac ode to a beloved pet snake, Medusa, a royal python who passed away the day after filming at the age of 27. infoMania is proud to show Medusa's final hours. She'll be missed.

A scorpion is an arthropod with eight legs.
It is a member of the Arachnida class
There are approximately 2000 species of scorpions.
They are found widely distributed south of 49° N, except New Zealand and Antarctica.
These have been around for hundreds of millions of years
Only 30 or 40 have strong enough poison to kill a person.
When food is scarce, the scorpion has an amazing ability to slow its metabolism to as little as one-third the typical rate for arthropods. This technique enables some species to use little oxygen and live on as little as a single insect per year.
Researchers have even frozen scorpions overnight, only to put them in the sun the next day and watch them thaw out and walk away.
But there is one thing scorpions have a difficult time living withoutsoil. They are burrowing animals, so in areas of permafrost or heavy grasses, where loose soil is not available, scorpions may not be able to survive.
Scientists aren't sure why, but scorpions are fluorescent under ultraviolet light.
Emperor scorpions live in the coast countries of west central Africa. They are one of the largest scorpions in the world! Although each scorpion has a venomous stinger on the tip of its tail, adults normally rely on their large claws, or palps, to capture prey.
Much like crickets, some scorpion species sing by rubbing their legs together. However, unlike crickets, it is thought that the song is used as a warning call instead of a call to attract a mate.
One species, the devil scorpion Tityus serrulatus from Brazil, reproduces by parthenogenesis, meaning the female doesn't need a male to fertilize her eggs.
The world's most dangerous scorpion lives in North Africa and the Mid-East is a species known as Androctonus.A scorpion is an arthropod with eight legs. It is a member of the Arachnida class... more

The claw is 46 cm, which indicates that its owner would be even larger than the average human.
The size of this creature suggests that other bugs, were much bigger than they are today.
