I’ve been meaning to post this for months.

Really, I have. Someone posted it on the Well, and it’s been in my to-post buffer since like February. So here it is.

According to this,

Several species of caterpillars have developed an interesting system for waste disposal; they fire their fecal pellets a distance of up to 40 times their body length away from their homes, at a speed of 4.2 feet (1.3 meters) per second. The equivalent distance for a 6-foot-tall (1.8 meter) human would be around 240 feet (73 meters).

Presented with no judgement or comment whatsoever, though I’m sure a few of you are thinking “Damn! I wish I could do that!”
