Caterpillar communications

Masked birch caterpillars “rub hairs on their rear ends against [leaves] to create vibrations,” according to an April National Geographic report. But a forthcoming article by Carleton University biologists describes that “drumming” as actually part of their “sophisticated signalling repertoire” to attract others, not for mating but for assistance in silk-spinning their protective cocoons. The researchers’ “laser vibrometer” detects sound likely inaudible to humans, but when the caterpillars feed, it’s clearly audible, said the researcher. (Via: Weird Universe)

A saviour for rough hands

The building site creams are standard fare in workshops, writes a reader. “They’ve been around at least 30 years. When you work with raw materials or oil covered metals all day, it can be pretty rough on your hands over a period of time. The barrier and ‘after work’ creams are exceptionally good at preventing ingrained dirt/dryness/infections etc, and save a heap of time cleaning hands — you’d be mad not to use them.” Mellow on yellow

Tony Marks of Omaha writes: “What people say they will buy and what they actually buy are often very different. Years ago, while working for an ice cream company, we were offered five containers of bananas free as the market had crashed. Some quick research indicated people would love banana ice cream. We made two tonnes. When I left over a year later, we still had 95 per cent unsold ... yellow cars suffer the same fate I understand.”
