    Those crabs looked extremely appetizing up until I saw the female crab laying her eggs by spurting them out like that... Then I saw all those baby crabs. That`s fuc|<ing gross. Imagine having them in your clothes and your food and your shower. They`re everywhere.

    the first part i was like, thats neat, i wonder how many get eaten on the way by bears or people.

    then the female was shooting the eggs out like it was some kinda monster movie (gross looking).

    and then i went, "DAAAAAAAAAMN" thats a lot of crabs. hell, there were so many baby crabs the street actually looked red....
