      Also, I don't think there is actually even a reason for insects to feel pain in the first place. They are very small and simple and quite expendable. It doesn't really make sense evolution wise to give them the complex machinery for the ability to feel and process pain.

      A mammal is much larger and more complex, they are more expensive. It makes sense to add pain in order to stop them going stupid things, however it does not even matter if an insect does something stupid as they are that numerous and have such rapid reproduction, adding more complex machinery would only make them use more energy and take longer to develop and to what end? They are quite fragile so if something causes them pain they are probably going to die anyway, not to mention that they have short lives to begin with.

      How much of the stars can you see from where you live? For me, the cutoff is about magnitude 2.9 (pic related, Uranus excluded). Only a few constellations have enough stars visible to be recognizable.

      Do you have any favorite websites for figuring out what the objects you're seeing in the sky are? I used
      https://www.fourmilab.ch/yoursky/
      for the OP pic; it's an old website, but the new ones I find in a quick search don't seem much improved. It's very useful to be able to adjust the brightness cutoff for the stars displayed, or unless you live in the middle of nowhere you can end up with a sky map so dissimilar to your own sky that you can't find anything.

      I tried it on my own image by adjusting parameters until I got the original image back and was able to get the original latitude very accurately (5 arcseconds off) but, as you might expect, was not so accurate on the longitude (4 degrees off). But the longitude could have been found more precisely if I had generated the image immediately before posting it. Time randomization and delay between generating and posting can be somewhat defeated and if you include the moon and planets in the image, but I used the moon and planets and was still 4 degrees off. If you're paranoid, it's best not to enter your latitude or longitude more precisely than you're willing to publish. I personally set the latitude/longitude to a nearby city (San Francisco). Pic related were the coordinates I reconstructed.

      Thought I'd try this again since I'm currently on holiday in the middle of nowhere with effectively zero light pollution. Could see to 4.0 or so but the sky was at least half covered in cloud which certainly didn't help (also the noises outside were rather unsettling so I decided not to stay observing out there very long).

      The administrators of Australia complain of the abundance of ground dwelling Laurasiatheria in the wilds of the land and the detrimental effect this has on the native ecology of said land but does not the basis of evolution lie on the notion of survival of the fittest? And is not Evolution a natural process? If these native creatures cannot handle the pressures introduced by the introduction of more advanced lifeforms then do they really have a place in this world?

      I found this interesting video on de-extinction. More specifically de-extinction of the Thylacine.

      He says that we have the technology to do this now, only that the technology itself is not advanced enough to do it within a practical time frame, but this is liable to change. But even so, these Thylacines will be the only thing of their ilk in existence, they will not have mummy Thylacines to teach them how to act or to hunt, but maybe after a few generations they will learn and pass it on to the next

      There are only 5000 Tigers alive in the wild. If people in Australia really care about Bio Diversity so much and really want to decrease the populations of feral camels, horses, deer, pigs, goats and buffalo then they should introduce the tiger. The reason these ungulates are able to live in such numbers is because they have no predators in Australia, Tigers will not affect the local ecology either, they are all too small for a tiger to bother with.

      Yes, there are more in zoos though. It's because they have large ranges, they are fairly solitary and they can only really live in wilderness. It's why they need to be introduced to Australia.

      It doesn't matter whether it is a pump and dump or not(or whether you see it as one because a great many will and will act as if it is). It has noting supporting it at all other than the meme, it's going to crash once the momentum ends. It will not hover at $350 long term.
