Science is the gun.
One time (ok... so more like a dozen times) I received a piece-o-crap chain letter e-mail that listed interesting facts. I did not pass-on the message so it looks like Jennifer Love Hewitt will never have sex with me, and some legless gimp in Mecapuckavokiaistan won't get his nickel from Bill Gates. Boo-hoo!
Anyway, one of the facts was that if you pour alcohol on a scorpion it would sting itself to death. Being scientifically minded, I filed that bit of information in the back of my mind.
On Sunday, September 17th, 2000 I had the opportunity to put this bit of trivia to the test. I documented the event with my cheap-ass digital camera.
For you animal rights activists. Don't worry, the scorpion was not, not harmed during this experiment.
