As good at Google generally is at search, it's surprising that it's so hard to filter through the crap in the Play store. If I'm looking for a specific app, I have to use the main Google search page with "site:play.google.com." The inability to sort through the crap within the Play storefront is just baffling, considering that's basically Google's core advantage; and it really degrades what is otherwise an excellent service.

Differing sets of conflicting rules, senior editors making their own personal information kingdoms, colliding and sometimes colluding with people who think they're editing UrbanDictionary.

I only edit anonymously, and I do not talk to any other editors.

I was riding a bike in South Korea once when I saw a dumpster full of manure on a farm. It was underneath a roof, and between the rafters and the sides of the dumpster, there was a thick veil of spider webs. There were hundreds of spiders living on this web, taking the flies that went for the cow shit, I presume. I don't know the name of the species, but they look similar to what are called "banana spiders" in the midwest US. They are black and yellow, and the females have leg spans of something like 3-4 inches. Also, this story reminds me of a storyline in "Franken Fran," where a neat freak corporate exec who is deathly afraid of roaches is horribly burned, then Fran replaces her skin with skin grown on the chitin of cockroaches.
