Scientists find fossil of super-sized bug - Science - MSNBC.com

It's a good thing puny humans don't have to compete with collossal dinos and bugs

SNAP in the ghetto slang sense, and figuratively if ya like

Just from reading the words "giant bug", I'd guess it probably lived under water, where the water negates a lot of the gravity.

There was something on a BBC documentary about this, in the past the atmosphere was a lot more rich in oxygen that allowed incects to grow to a HUGE size, although I think that evolution played a huge part in down sizing of most insect verierties (which we can all be glad for) I just hope that Tarantulas get smaller. *Shudders*
