    What gives? Can't really even eat this thing. ***? No claws? Complete waste of garlic butter IMHO.

    Ever try to shoe a horse with those things? Truly a fool's errand, and I speak from experience.

    (But I'm def digging the Antigua finish on that there crustacean.)

    Hey, I ONLY eat horseshoe crab and have done so for 79 years after trying it out when I was 63 years old it’s the best food ever and you can make excellent actual horse shoes with it if you know what your doing and if you dont know what your doing you can just watch tumblr videos about it tumblr is better than youtube because I can sell tuna fish burritos in a cornfield just like a wall street man getting a Tupperware bucket filled with crayons for thursdays in Rochester when you can’t turn right on red and your only going to the store to buy masks and chewing tobacco and doant enbares me abowt ma punkchuwashin or iyel git angry

    Yeah, but can you use it to lay down a decent bass line? That's what I want to know.

    Definately holds down the low end of the evolutionary scale.

    BTW the evolutionary scale is a multi-tone scale with notes that mutate.

    However it's configured, I think we can all agree that it would be the best bass for crabcore:

    estimated to be 450 million years old, it must be doing something right

  17. They may not have evolved much, but they are a huge contributor to human evolution. If you are vaccinated against Polio, Measles, Small Pox, or any number of plagues that could have caused you mortal harm, thank a Horseshoe Crab...

    I love this topic. Horse Neck Beach RI. Where they go to die and rot in the son. Plaything for 3 year olds. There is Nothing that can be et on the horse shoe crab, but there is antifreeze in the blood or something which scientists are very interested in and they are being harvested for that. They are Pre Animal food.

    Hey, there's nothing wrong with sticking to the classics. I'm a fan of flats anyway.
