You should never feel alone...


if you know that these guys are always around.


Tardigrades
Also known as water bears or moss piglets.
More info at this reference center.

Discovered by Johann August Ephraim Goeze
in 1773, over 900 species of water bears have
been found everywhere around the world.
Imagine having company that you can't evict,
dry, freeze, boil, or nuke out of existence.
Makes me think of some roommates in the past,
but these pigs never eat all my chips and salsa!
If we could only find a way to charge them rent...

Makes a person wonder what else lies in await for us when we are least expecting it! Ugly little fella, only a mother could love something like that.

If you feel the incessant urge,
and your tongue is sharp and quick,
leave a worthless thought for me
whether cool, or fun, or sick.
