It's horribly horribly wrong, and yet...pretty cool nonetheless. Thanks P_G!

Odd. Very odd. Funny, but odd. Although, I think the substance purported to be salt, may actually be sugar.

Heh, slugs hate the salt, but love the beer.

All slugs deserve what they get for nibbling my cucumber seedlings. Die, slugs. Slimy nibbling little bastards.

I can't help feeling sorry for the slug. That said, I was compelled to look at all the pictures - they were all fascinating. But I came away from the site feeling dirtier, like one does after watching a Faces of Death clip or whatnot.

Is this post from Fark, or are you just trying it out here first?

More importantly, is "Saline Slug Labyrinth" already taken as a band name? (Album titles: "Don't Salt my Rim", "Back to the Garden", "Unshrivelled")

My sister emailed me this article just yesterday: Legal world celebrates legacy of dead slug with a taste for ginger

"The humble slug may not be considered the most popular or attractive of creatures. But one gastropod in particular was responsible for establishing the most important precedent in legal history. . . The principle, which is now established as a legal case study, is applied in every case where a person suffers injury or loss."

"A party of American lawyers gathered to worship the "shrine", better known to Paisley buddies as Wellmeadow. "
I'd like to see a film treatment of this by Terry Gilliam.

The essence of Metafilter - the maze is a boring web stunt, but lelilo's link was entertaining and informative!

Thanks, 2sheets. My sister sent me that link because the first band I ever played with in concert, back in '98, had the wonderful name The Angelic Slugs.

I am long gone (and have been in four or five other bands since then), but the Slugs are still going strong. In fact, I just wrote about them in May for the Maine music magazine Face.
