Differences Between Love And Lust

A pet peeve of mine, is reading about “love” daily, when in reality it’s LUST rearing it’s ugliness.

Love is silent, it does not boast. It’s an action backed emotion and there’s no harping on the subject, as love makes one feel secure, not jealous and protective, thus being private.

Lust is boastful, obsessed, jealous, controlling, abusive, self-centered, all hot air and talk, constantly harping calling it “love”, with no actions backing up the words.

Now excuse moi, while I go search for my chest waders.

A bizarre new bug resembling the major 90s toy craze Troll Dolls has baffled scientists. Teams from the University of Harvard and museums around the world trekked for three weeks to explore the untouched rainforest of southeast Suriname. They managed to catalogue 60 new animal species - but one little critter has proved too tricky to record. The 7mm wide, six-legged bug has been whittled down to possibly fitting into four nymph families: Dictyopharidae, Nogodinidae, Lophopidae, and Tropiduchidae.

Mantis Flies are a genus of true flies (Dipterans) who capture prey with their huge, spiky, raptorial forelegs.

Turns out The Fly was pretty harmless in comparison.

An intriguing photo project documents how dog owners can resemble their pets. Seem silly?
Several studies have probed the psychological mechanisms at work and have confirmed that we do indeed resemble our dogs. Next Avenue tells you why.
