    The reptile park wants spiders. Does the spider park want reptiles?

    Those aren’t stones….they’re giant balls of twine left out in the weather for centuries!

    Those stone balls may have been built by the same people who sculpted the Easter Island statues, and built the pyramids-aliens.

    I don’t think they were made, that is what water naturally does to Rocks. It is expected in areas with a lot of torrential rain and by bodies of water. Why do you think rocks by river banks or lakes are so smooth and perfectly round in shape?

    Ancient astronaut theorists suggest that it was the work of giant outer space aliens who loved to play rock marbles.

    Milking spiders. I’m guessing one needs a really tiny bucket and very small hands.

    As to the giant balls, when the gods play, they sometimes leave their toys behind.

    Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s works always evoke wonder in the eyes and minds of viewers. So different from the posed and stiff portraits of earlier times. So alive, yet ephemeral, as if seen in the half-light of evening or a dream. One can only marvel and remember.

    They’re the golf balls left by the pyramid builders. I would go with the marble theory, but the pyramids are too precisely constructed.

    If you want us to milk spiders, you have to tell us where the udder is located. I looked and looked but couldn’t find it. And I can tell you, the spiders don’t much like it. Maybe they were boy spiders.

    4,000 paintings? They must have been pretty bad, since none were really famous.

    Giant Bocce Ball was short lived because it took 25 guys per team to roll the ball; foot injuries were common.

    If you carved the stone balls at the top of a hill, which you were defending, you could roll them down at attackers without fear of them using your weapon against you.

    People are so ignoramus. Those are not balls, they are baby moons, that eventually will ascend to space and take their place as moons to needy planets. Sigh, it’s so tiresome being smart.

    My daughter got her skin-diving certification in Costa Rica. Said it was gorgeous. No treks into the jungle, though.

    Perhaps the giant stones were used to knock over giant bowling pins.

    experts say that there was probably a race of giants living in Costa Rica that played golf thousands of years ago or was it millions. Renoir’s wife was so mad at him during his lifetime because he was always too busy painting to take her or the garbage out. funnel spiders are where funnel cake comes from. believe it or not.
