Spiders on a Train (Platform)

Breaking: There’s suddenly an inordinate amount of spiders in both the Peekskill and the Croton-Harmon stations, says a tipster and fellow bleary commuter. This has been independently confirmed by Peekskill Rocks!. And they’re big.

We should befriend them, however: According to Discovery News, “Spidey Silk Can Actually Halt a Train.” Maybe that’s why the morning trains to Poughkeepsie are always running late? Developing.

If you’ve got further evidence of arachnids on the platforms (or indeed any wildlife–geese, foxes, or butterflies, for instance), please send it our way.

Do you have a nice dress and brown hair? Someone has a crush on you.
