The Lives of Sociable Spiders - NYTimes.com
It's about spiders, but no photos (one non-autoplaying video though). Some are bold hunters, some timid nurturers. The latter 'eventually liquefy their own bodies to nourish the next generation', so they're hardcore childminders!

'we generally demonize violent acts and violent work. We make them Other, and we just distance ourselves. They are Other, and they didn’t come from us, and we’re just going to stand over there and shake our heads sadly. And, moreover, anyone who gets closer to it in order to experience or understand it must be a freak.'

Procrastination Is Not Laziness | Thought Catalog
'It’s a neurotic self-defense behavior that develops to protect a person’s sense of self-worth. You see, procrastinators tend to be people who have, for whatever reason, developed to perceive an unusually strong association between their performance and their value as a person. This makes failure or criticism disproportionately painful, which leads naturally to hesitancy when it comes to the prospect of doing anything that reflects their ability — which is pretty much everything.'
