FACT SMACK: Spider Edition

"Okay kwong here's how this is gonna work all right. Sebastian gets roughly ten minutes facts to prove that his critter of choice. Spiders are the coolest critters. Okay got it now. These are general spider facts. So sebastian gets to call on any spider. He wants which gives him a lot to choose from. There are like roughly forty five thousand species of spiders and to give you a sense of context. Think about an animal that we see all the time or type of animal mammals right there are only about six thousand or so species of mammals that covers literally everything from shrews to wales to rhinos compared to the forty five thousand as of spiders nest so many spy seen mammals. Like it's just where it's at. Now where's that okay. So here's the thing it's not just. How many of them there. It's also where they live. Spiders are out here. Along in here is pretty much everywhere. See this is one of my favorite things about Planet earth is basically. Wherever i go. I can find a spider because they are spiders living everywhere from the inter titles on right at the ocean's edge to forests to dryest desert's where they build sand tunnels under the sand up on mountains not as regular mountains all the way up to the slopes of mount everest and everything in between a hold on he just said there are spiders that live on mount everest. Oh yeah clung. There's a famous one up. There called the himalayan jumping spider. They live up to twenty two thousand feet or sixty seven hundred meters above sea level. They are the spider the animal that is arguably the highest permanent resident on earth. They're living in the penthouse on our planet incredible. I wouldn't have thought i wouldn't have thought spider. I would've thought something else. Yeah i know me neither. But i love this because even its species name omni superstars is kind of perfect for talking smack. The omni superstar means stands above everything because it is literally above us at all points of the day of the night of the year. Watching down a bunks. All be lower animals. Identify lower animal. You know about that spider. Maybe your soul mate. All right what else do you got supplier okay. So the one that sent me over the spider edge wong. Did you know that there are multiple types of spiders who live at least part-time underwater. Like i'm talking seawater freshwater. They're out there. I mean you must find that amazing because you can barely swim. Wow wow wow. Wow emily everyone else was getting to talk. Smack didn't turn honestly fair but her full fare but herve okay. Okay so anyways. There's this spider that lives underwater called the diving bell spider and they basically make a sifi like underwater dome of air. That's their air pocket. Go there when they need to breathe and the rest of the time they just go out and they bring a little like bubble of air around their lungs which on a spider on the bottom of the abdomen. Bring a bubble of air around with that and they're just walking around underwater. They are catching food under their catching fish catching small insects and their entire life every part of their lifespan from birth to reproduction to death. Okay even i. A person who doesn't think about spiders will admit this incredibly cool that spiders are really living all over. The place got range qualm. They got rained. I don't mean like as a group of species. Some spiders legit have ranged. in fact many spiders can fly. I mean technically it's called ballooning but they're flying get out what they'll do is they. Basically will just release silk into the wind and it goes up and basically turns into like a kite. But when you're a light enough to be a spider something that's like a kite is basically like an air balloon out of here and okay. Here's the thing though. It's not just them catching the wind. There's evidence that spiders can sense earth's electric fields and take advantage of that to shoot up into the sky

That are arranged getaways. Exactly exactly so usually Tokyo is a good hub to start from. It's accessible you can get in and out of IT EASY. Great hotels lots of stuff to do. But if you're adventurous and you WANNA head on outside of Tokyo. There's some really cool places at Tokyo when you go to Japan right well. Yeah I mean there's there's plenty to do and to do in Tokyo but if time allows exactly so we wanted to share with your couple of short trips that you can easily take you in and out of a Tokyo and we're GonNa hit you know several of those cities so last we talked we were talking about getting around via Jr. the Japanese rail and within Tokyo even from all the major airports you can get into Tokyo central really really easily. And when you hit stations like Tokyo station or even Shinjuku or Yokohama. There are Shinkon San or the the bullet trains that can take you to all other parts of Japan. And so we're gonNA talk about you. Know How you cruise around from Tokyo to other places using the railroad jerry. Easy probably the most convenient way to do it. Is Well well. I've always taken a car over my grandpa drove or my dad. Or however you remember Susan when we've traveled as family that we've always kind of jumped on. We have a car as well but Wisconsin took the Shinkansen to bigger family right so anyway so the first one that we WANNA hit. This is the city call. Hakuna I'm sure a lot of people have seen this word on a guidebooks more from friends or people who's been there. It's a very popular destination. It's an easy weekend getaway in Japan when we talk about Hakuna. Japanese people have to hit hot spring over very well known area. It's a it's a hot spring resort area it right and then you can see a beautiful Mount Fuji. Oh my gosh now. In good reason why. That's the center. Excuse me hot.

If you look at the map of Japan right right and it takes about eighty five minutes an hour and a half or two hours if you take a probably the easiest way you WanNa take a train is by Docu or Docu. Od A K Y you railway docu railway operates. It runs between Tokyo Shinjuku Station to GonNa Yumoto station. Okay and one way journey. I think there are a couple of different types of nanny. It's a limited express right right and then the other one is a little bit slower Express trains coupon right. But I think it's like a little bit over my two thousand. Three hundred men check the rate. You know the latest one but It's it's a very reasonable and you can also take a bus in like I said I when I was younger. We always just drove. Takes a while on the traffic begins. We always travel during the holiday seasons. Four hours you know five hours Roy Moore. I know so. We highly recommend that. It's this whole amount area. The Hukou owner area in capacity hakuna shrine. Which is a Shinto shrine. And it's just a there are tons of hot springs. The food is great is easy access from Tokyo. I really really highly recommended such a pretty area to visit and there's such a variety of things to do over there as well. I mean not only do you have this magnificent view of famous Mount Fuji? I mean on a clear day. Perhaps you can see Mount Fuji and the distance from Tokyo. It is southwest of Tokyo. Roughly about one hundred kilometers southwest to Tokyo and again it dominates the western Side of the prefecture there. But when you get up towards it and you can see it in all its majestic beauty. It's quite breathtaking. Very lovely so just a few things. You know that I can point out the fun things to do the top attractions in Hukou Hukou hot springs.

Spa It's a very different immersive experiences. Definitely some you should check out. Troy experienced one hundred percent and other attractions. The other one is a good unease very very famous e you can also smell the so far though soul. I but it's the it's a crater created by the last major eruption of Mount Hakuna and one of the interesting thing is they sell these eggs as you see them everywhere throw in.

So it's it's always it's always a person or a number of people who have to make the decision. So it's it's always open for interpretation. So just to paint a picture for those who weren't able to see it. And and Johann you'd be surprised at how many people listen to this podcast that don't see the stages everyday. Oh, okay. Yeah. He's a Vivian on Ackerman's wheel pulls around to his left in and was passing him. You know, like I said textbook sprint. But as he drifted over to his left it pushed the trek Sigfredo, a rider Moschetti up towards the barrier. Where did he have to break? It was again the cover was very quick. Yeah. I mean, you know, if you look at at the sprint until one kilometer to go first of all the DC themes were were riding and pulling and making sure that the guys in the front, mainly rain by Mitte, then sprinter teams came up and Ackerman started quite early especially because all the all the teams obviously had the information that it was really strong headwind in the loss kilometer on the last seven hundred meters. So so we've Yanni did actually a perfect sprint. He waited waited very long and an Ackerman obviously, couldn't keep that's beat..

"Mars, the more feasible it's becoming for instance, Mars doesn't have a moon like we do. And so it's access is really swung around significantly. We have found buried the ancient pole of Mars, and and in some cases, it's seven hundred meters or more of ice, this would probably be pure water, the places large it's bigger than the state of Maryland. This is you're talking about this this frozen lake. It's a frozen polar cap. It's the answering the first gap and Maryland, okay? Mid-latitudes right now. So the ability to be able to have a base of operation where you can leverage in use that resources completely viable fact a Japanese research group at university of Kyoto is looking at how to grow poplars. Okay. Trees the trees. Yeah. In Mars soil. They have assimilate in addition to the carbon dioxide pressure and temperature of Mars, and we'll check in with them in another year. And see what happens so conceptually a lot of research can be moving move in the right direction. That will really be quite exciting. I in other we humans like we are a self absorbed species. Right. We think of ourselves at the center of everything. But if we do discover, some kind of life on Mars or even beyond single celled organisms, or whatever it might be. And then of course, we'll be super exciting. But. Just out of curiosity. Like, what does that do for us? Like how does it does? It actually make a difference for humans shirt doubt. Oh, absolutely. So let's pick a couple examples. All right once you find life. Let's say single celled organisms on Mars a whole new series of questions come about. Okay. Those questions are how are we related to it? Is it a DNA based is concept of Pam sperm? You the idea of impacts carrying life away from a planet until it falls on another planet, and then CD net planet, and then starting life again is that the right relationship, or is it really a second Genesis. So now if we jump to a place like Europa in Europe is one of Jupiter's man's, correct? Europa got this magnificent ocean with what we believe are hydrothermal vents. It's an active geological body. Where ice tectonics are going on. We're one plate is slipping under others as cracks are forming. Water circulating to the surface. There's an entire circulation of material in the ocean, the radiation environment that it's in seems to indicate that is the high energy particles hit the surface that the oxygen nation occurs in the ocean and has a fabulous environment. And it's been like that for four and a half billion years. Wow. Okay. And so that would definitely be a second. Genesis. We couldn't get rocks from Mars and earth from impacts with life on them all the way up that far in of the solar system to be able to pelt Europa so much that it could start life. So we would want to probe that. But the bottom line is. We might have now answered the question. Yes. Life is elsewhere in the solar system may be related to us verifying. Pam me. Maybe not. But we have opportunities.
