Listen.. spider web is 5x stronger than steel so what we can do is we can genetically modify tarantula to be even bigger than it is now.. Maybe the size of a dog.. Then we can get even thicker spiders with even thicker webs where it can serve real-life purposes in designing infrastructures that are even more durable, provides better longevity, all that with low production cost once we develop the technology needed and necessary to make this a reality.
Imagine a world where we have all these giant spiders the size of dogs and maybe even a gorilla, in the extreme case, shown in glass cages in a zoo.. Where we show how we harvest its web to build our buildings, skyscrapers, etc. It will help humanity expand and develop even faster and better. We can utilize spiders and put them in a positive light where they're shown to help humanity instead of just being another scary creature. It'll be like Jurassic Park - but a reality!
I have very severe psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, which is out of control and debilitating. I leave a visible trail of flakes everywhere that I go, and no longer feel comfortable going out in public unless I am covered up extremely well.
I have gotten Taltz (ixekizumab) injections before, however my insurance decided that my skin is a nonessential item, so each syringe would cost me "$6,272.80 per individual pen", however it completely fixes the psoriasis in around a week.
Words cannot describe how frustrating this disease is, and how much it has affected my self-confidence. But, since psoriasis this severe is pretty rare, I figured I'd do an AMA if people had any questions about it since it probably looks like I look like I have leprosy. There are miracle drugs out there which fix the issue, but it doesn't help anything if insurance plans aren't willing to cover the cost 😣
