How come they call travel bugs travel bugs, but they have a spider for a logo, which is actually an arachnid from the latin arachnidae, meaning "ichy creepy crawly thing"? So if something bugs you, you don't say "it spiders me", do you? Food for thought though, not that it is food and I eat bugs. Nor do I eat spiders, at least not on purpose. Although in some contries...

How many hamsters are used to run the website network?
What do they eat to maintain that high energy?
Are they specially breed for this type of work?
How often do they have to be "replaced"?

Where do they get their favorite points from? It's like they have a never ending supply.

No, they must be sold on the black market.
What is the current price of favorite points?

I saw a couple in a "Where's Waldo" book a few weeks back! Cool

They chose a spider because they thought it would stand out the most

It's a tough one:

1. Take GPSr
2. Disappear into the woods for several hours so the scoutmaster can take a nap.
