The scientist in me couldn't resist...

A bottle? Huh, looks like a random assortment of left over potions... I wonder what happens when you drink it?

Help meeeeee..... Help MEEEEEEEEE....

Okay, no, I would enjoy temporarily becoming a giant hymenoptera, though I'm sure it's nowhere as pleasant as being a giant lepidoptera :D.

All I see are words and they make my poor, fragile engineer's brain hurt :(

We had pet praying mantises when I was a kid. We used to hand-feed them. The best part was watching them mate, and then the female turning around and literally biting the male's head off. If she was hungry enough,she might even finish him right there. My brother and I used to take bets. Sometimes you just miss home, ya know?

Leaving lepidoptera...Please, don't touch the display,
little boy, aha cute! Moving to the next aisle we have
arachnida, the spiders, our...finest collection.
This friendly little devil is the heptothilidi,
unfortunately harmless. Next to him, the nasty licosa
raptoria, his tiny fangs cause creeping ulcerations of
the skin (laugh). And here, my prize, the Black
Widow. Isn't she lovely?...And so deadly. Her kiss is
fifteen times as poisonous as that of the rattlesnake.
You see her venom is highly neurotoxic, which is to say
that it attacks the central nervous system causing
intense pain, profuse sweating, difficulty in
breathing, loss of consciousness, violent convulsions
and, finally...Death. You know what I think I love the
most about her is her inborn need to dominate,
possess. In fact, immediately after the consummation
of her marriage to the smaller and weaker male of the
species she kills and eats him...(laugh) oh, she is
delicious...And I hope he was! Such power and dignity
...unhampered by sentiment. If I may put forward a
slice of personal philosophy, I feel that man has ruled
this world as a stumbling dimented child-king long
enough! And as his empire crumbles, my precious Black
Widow shall rise as his most fitting successor!
