Some things work better than others though. LikeLike Reply My first thought was, “Come into my parlor, said the Spider to the Fly…” I grew up hearing that first as an aphorism, and later as the first line of a complete poem. The original first line is, “‘Will you walk into my parlour,’ said the Spider to the Fly…” The entire poem’s here. It was fun to read it again. I had no idea it was published in the early 1800s, or that the author (Mary Howitt) was English.

Pound for pound, spider web is supposed to be stronger than high tensile steel, isn’t it? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply It sure would, Ark! I believe it is said to be as strong as high tensile steel in comparison. LikeLike Reply Gosh is that a web? How intricate.
