What, there's no water?

great. another reason to be afraid of the dark.

I am ever grateful that I learned how to sleep with my eyes open in college!

Wait. Scratch that.


Even though I am not a bird I am still wearing googles to bed for the rest of my life.

I wish i had not clicked the link. i guarantee that as soon as i close my eyes tonight, this is the first thing that will pop in head. Gross!

Didn't Antonio Carlos Jobim do this one...?

When moths drink the tears of sleeping birds,
With harpoons in their probosces
I'll wander with you
Neath the moon up above
Our hacienda in Old Calabasas...

Betsy - isn't that from The "Moth From Ipanema"?

Catfood the cockatiel vows never to sleep again.

Pogo...*snork*! actually, TMFI works if you drop the last line (and 'proboscis' definitely has a nice bossa nova beat)

The smart birds sleep on their stomachs.

Is it just me, or do some sciencetists have way too much time on thier hands? I mean to sit around and watch sleeping birds!
Just saying

I have a multitude of nightime ailments (restless leg syndrome, anxiety, sleep apnea) that keep me from getting a good night's rest. Now I have to worry about moths too?

I didn't read the article, but the headline seemed almost like some "metaphors" (but for what?) you'd see on certain teens' MySpace pages.

Now where did I put that mosquito net?

So, do the moths get the birds to eat chili made from their parents first? Do they call them Cartman moths?

I must be the only person who didn't even know that birds had tears.

Wouldn't Steve Irwin have loved this headline? Crikey!
RIP Steve, the kiddos sure miss you!

"TMFI works if you drop the last line (and 'proboscis' definitely has a nice bossa nova beat)."

Would that make it a probossa-nova? ;-)

Also, "Tear-Feeding Moths" WBAGNFAEmoB.

Kev...Excellent point! And no one is more probossa-nova than I am!

Quiet nights of quiet stars
Quiet chords from my guitar
Floating on the moths' pristine proboscis
Quiet sighs and quiet words
Quiet tears from quiet birds
Arc across my dreams like a Colossus.....

aarif--I didn't know that either. I've never seen a bird cry--do they use tiny tissues? or do they not need them because they have moths to take care excess tears for them? Enquiring minds want to know!
