actually, centipedes haven't really got 100 legs- it's closer to 40.and besides that, when they die, they don't just fall on their "back", they curl up in a little ball, so their legs aren't in the air

I meant the first comment on this page, not my 1st comment. Just trying to clear that up for all those folks who are a little slow.

No you could flip it over. Although, despite what your dad tells you, centipedes DO bite.. and it hurts..
Speaking of analyzing too much, I can't help but wonder, "Does a dead centipede really lay on it's back?" I would imagine it would curl up or flop down on it's side or something.. Or be SQUISHY

Thats as good a joke as it is teaser. Loved it. Ignore the ar** who made the first comment. What does it matter how many legs a centipede has got. I don't think it would be as fun, or even possible if it began "It lies forty feet in the air...".

Loved it.
