Yesterday was Godzilla’s birthday

November 3rd might be widely known as Election Day in the U.S., but it’s also Godzilla’s 66th birthday. Toho Intl. has unveiled a monstrous celebration of everyone’s favorite kaiju’s birthday with a batch of all-new episodes of its popular Godzilla Tales series, which has garnered more than 325K views to-date…

Toho recently unveiled its Godzilla Tales which offers bringing Godzilla classic monsters to screens everywhere in bite-sized formats…

You can now watch episodes of Godzilla Tales out now, with new episodes dropping weekly on the Nerdist YouTube Channel now through the end of the year

Not much to say about that other event. The election battle between the party of American bigotry and the party of cautious mediocrity is still unresolved at this point in time. One hopes the latter prevails. They aren’t as likely to continue the truly evil progress towards fascism currently led by the Republican Party.

    ‘Godzilla’ Wasp Swims—So Its Young Can Burst Out of Caterpillars https://www.wired.com/story/godzilla-wasp-swims-so-its-young-can-burst-out-of-caterpillars/
    In non-election news, Microgaster godzilla dives to find a caterpillar, forces it to the surface, and injects it with a baby that eats the host from the inside out.
    The scientific name Microgaster godzilla is not a mistranslation or a weird bit of Latin, but a very intentional honorific that researchers bestowed upon a species of parasitoid (meaning a parasite that kills its host) wasp in a new paper in the Journal of Hymenoptera Research. The Godzilla of pop culture emerges from the sea to make life miserable for humans, and this wasp does the same for moth caterpillars. Also, Godzilla once fought Mothra, and Microgaster godzilla menaces the caterpillars of aquatic moths.
