Beware of crazy praying mantises


Jewish date:  27 Tammuz 5770 (Parashath Maṭṭoth-Mas‘e).

Worthy causes of the day:  “Tell Mott's Management: Don't Take Money out of Workers' Pockets!” and “Stop Risky Offshore Drilling Without Environmental Review - Take Action Today @ The Rainforest Site”.

Today’s news and commentary:
Today’s weird thing is this praying mantis:

Yesterday I discovered that not only is a praying mantis able to cling to the side mirror of a car traveling at 45 miles per hour, but this one was actually crazy enough to do so when I went to mail packages at the post office.  It even remained on its new perch while being photographed.  Enjoy, share the weirdness, and Shabbath shalom.
