    I recently assembled a shed, using fence posts to prop the sides up while I quickly shoved in some screws. Once two sides were together, it was easy.

    If God had meant us to breathe underwater, he would have given us larger bank balances.
    Human beings were invented by water as a means of moving itself from one place to another.

    Why do you have a shed full of prison officers?

    I am certainly finding plenty to keep me busy but also have more time for reading and thinking. Perhaps too much thinking. I worry that my brain is going into Finless mode...
    For example, where did house mice, house spiders and house sparrows live before humans invented houses?......

    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    They were mutations of other species caused by the human plague.

    The dangly spiders that used to just cling onto life in caves on the South coast are gradually moving North through the UK using nice warm houses. Unfortunately, they mostly eat other spiders.

    Wow, if they reach my house it will be carnage!

    A short time to come, in a web close by...

    It is a period of civil war. Rebel
    spiders, striking from a hidden
    base on the south coast, have won their first victory
    against the towcester Arachnid Empire.
    During the battle, Rebel spiders managed
    to steal secret plans to the Empire's
    ultimate weapon, the Death Web, an
    sticky webbing with enough
    glue to destroy an entire spider colony.
    Pursued by the Arachnid Empire's sinister harvestmen,
    Princess Spidy Mc' Spiderface races home aboard her
    funnel web, custodian of the stolen plans
    that can save her people and restore
    freedom to the colonies.....

    I had this problem with clothes moths then a walk in the countryside with sheep in fields showed the probable original feed, wool and I presume other animal hair lodged on stones and vegetation presumably provided the original food source with shelter for larvae and pupal stages in the same crevices that catch the hair/wool whatever. One advantage of plastics is they can't seem to eat them.
    Maybe I'm Spartacus no I mean Finless. Spartacus is dead.
    Evolution is great at solving problems. It's the methods that concern me.
