Atari’s restless ghost has released NFTs
3d models that are more expensive than the real thing.

Atari, the corporate entity / brand of Theseus, has just made around $110,000 by selling —you guessed it — NFTs ( shout out to Ars Technica for doing the math). The tokens in question are 3D models of the Atari 2600 game cartridge for Centipede — 10 of them black, 100 of them red.
The NFTs are being sold as part of the Atari Capsule Collection — which is basically a bunch of Centipede and Pong -themed NFTs being sold by the company that now owns the Atari brand. The company and its intellectual property have been bought and sold so many times it’s almost hard to keep track, but the current incarnation of it is mainly known for trying to build hotels and struggling to make a game console .
As jaded as I am, I can admit that there’s at least one interesting part of Atari’s NFT offerings: the Flagship Centipede . According to the company, the NFT part is just another 3D model, but the first person to buy it will get a a real-life, original and restored Centipede arcade cabinet. But if the regular NFTs that just included a 3D model were selling for thousands of dollars, I don’t even want to think about how much that one will sell for.
We talk about NFTs a lot , often as collectors’ items, but these ones are particularly baffling — they sold from $180.78 to over $16,000. As Ars points out that if you wanted to get a real Centipede 2600 cartridge, with the box, manual, and everything, you could go to eBay and spend $30 (or $53 if you want it sealed). Collector-grade versions of the game have recently sold for around $500, and auctions for them start in that territory too . Even original Centipede arcade cabinets cost less than some of these NFTs.
What’s an NFT?
NFTs allow you to buy and sell ownership of unique digital items and keep track of who owns them using the blockchain . NFT stands for “non-fungible token,” and it can technically contain anything digital, including drawings, animated GIFs, songs, or items in video games. An NFT can either be one of a kind, like a real-life painting, or one copy of many, like trading cards, but the blockchain keeps track of who has ownership of the file.
NFTs have been making headlines lately, some selling for millions of dollars, with high-profile memes like Nyan Cat and the “deal with it” sunglasses being put up for auction. There’s also a lot of discussion about the massive electricity use and environmental impacts of NFTs. If you (understandably) still have questions, you can read through our NFT FAQ .
If the point is to feel like you own something, that you’ve collected it, which would give you more of that feeling: an NFT or a copy of the actual game? The NFT would give you an entry on the blockchain, certifying that you own a 3D model (which is identical to all the other versions), but a physical cartridge can be displayed on a shelf or actually played. And that’s not even considering the physical versions that have history — you could always try to track down one of the versions of the game that Atari buried in the desert back in 1983 . They’ve sold on eBay before for around $600 , and come with an origin story that can’t really be matched by an NFT.
And if you needed one more reason why you should save your money and just buy a physical copy of Centipede , here’s the kicker: those were made by the actual, original Atari, not the corporate entity that happens to own its name these days.

10 Most Dangerous Centipedes In The World
Centipede is one such small insect that scares any human in the world to just go crazy. Being so much weird in terms of looks, the centipedes are venomous too. A great saying from a Tibetan poet who warns his fellow Buddhists, “if you enjoy frightening others, you will be reborn as a centipede”. Further, being nonvenomous too, they can just scare you with multiple small legs they possess. The evolution of the centipede dates to 430 million years ago. There are close to 8000 species in existence today, about 3000 of them are described. While many of them are not fatal to humans, there are some centipede species that can become fatal on children. This includes small children allergic to insect bites and bee stings.
So, what are the ten most dangerous centipedes in the world? Let’s check out.

It is an example of animals ruling certain places . They are basically not shy by nature and don’t possess any escape strategy when exposed.
Furthermore, their bite is very painful on humans and can cause swelling. They are nocturnal and hunt on small, medium-sized insects and carcasses.
9. Tiger Centipede (Scolopendra polymorpha)
There you go, a centipede species which got its name from the name of another animal. Tiger centipede by the name has a tiger-like pattern on the body.

A fully grown tiger centipede can grow up to 18 centimeters in length. Tiger centipedes are known for strong bites and can cause intense pain if bitten. Additionally, they attack small and medium-sized insects as well as small rodents.
They can be primarily observed underneath the rocks and in burrows. Furthermore, tiger centipedes inhabit forests, dry grasslands, and deserts.
8. Tanzanian Blue Ringleg (Scolopendra morsitans)
Tanzanian blue ringleg is a similar centipede species as that Chinese red-headed centipede. Scientifically recognized as “Scolopendra morsitans”, the Megarian banded centipedes have exactly the same painful bite as that of the red-headed centipede.
Being almost similar in terms of looks between them, the toxin levels in it is not considered fatal. On average, an adult Tanzanian blue ringleg grows to a size between 15 and 20 centimeters.
They mainly reside in the islands of Australia, Indonesia, and Malaysia. Finally, if you ever come across this centipede species, try to avoid them as much as possible.
7. Megarian Banded Centipede (Scolopendra cingulata)
Megarian banded centipede is yet another dangerous centipede found in the Mediterranean area. The centipede species can as well be seen throughout southern Europe and parts of North Africa.
An adult of its kind grows up to 15 centimeters in length. This small size makes them one of the smallest centipede species in the world. Scientifically referred to as “Scolopendra Cingulata”, the Megarian banded centipede is brighter in terms of looks. It consists of bright alternate bands of black and yellow.
This special appearance makes them incredible and scary at first sight. Further, Megarian banded centipedes are considered toxic but not accounted for fatal for humans. However, they are aggressive creatures and can fight any insect of their size.
6. Indian Tiger Centipede (Scolopendra hardwickei)
Indian tiger centipede is yet another terrifying centipede species commonly found in the south of the Indian peninsula. Additionally, the centipede species can be rarely found in the parts of the islands of Sumatra and Nikobar.

Further, a single bite from them can be painful that can cause symptoms like drowsiness and swelling. So, the next time you ever come across this centipede, make a move to stay away from them.
5. Amazonian Giant Centipede (Scolopendra viridicornis)
Amazonian giant centipede is a lethal centipede species found in the Amazon rainforests. As the centipede is known to be locally found in the Brazilian forests, the centipede was named an “Amazonian giant centipede”.
Additionally, it is a descendant of the species “Scolopendra gigantea”. It is accounted as one of the most aggressive centipede species that can catch hold of any medium-sized insects on its way.
A single bite can be very painful and is known to last for days. Further, some components of the centipede’s toxin are used for medicinal use in northeast Brazil. Evidence has revealed that they can be used as a strong antimicrobial agent.
4. Waterfall Centipede (Scolopendra cataracta)
Waterfall centipede is a lethal centipede endemic to Southeast Asia. Additionally, the centipede species is also found in parts of Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam.
It is an amphibious centipede and was first discovered near the Khao Sok National Park in 2000. An adult waterfall centipede grows up to 7.9 inches in length.
Further, the centipede is dangerous in terms of look as they have horrifying long legs. The waterfall centipedes have unique characteristics and are considered venomous by nature.
The actual venom effects on humans are unclear. However, they are aggressive enough to catch hold of small insects as their meal.
3. Giant Desert Centipede (Scolopendra heros)
Giant desert centipede is a lethal centipede species found in the Southwestern United States and Northern Mexico. Scientifically recognized as “Scolopendra heros”, the giant desert centipede is accounted as the largest centipede species in North America.
Additionally, it can grow up to a size of 6.5 inches in length or longer depending on the environment. The venom content in it is not surprisingly dangerous.
The venom has a composition the includes cardiotoxic proteins and enzymes that can cause severe pain if bitten. However, there has not been any vital or adverse effects on humans.
Furthermore, a bite on mice or small rodents can have intense pain in the local area for up to 5 hours. The toxin content in the giant desert centipedes is known to affect the nervous system that can cause symptoms like nausea, headache, or swelling in humans.
2. Peruvian Giant Yellow-leg Centipede (Scolopendra gigantea)
Peruvian giant yellow-leg centipede is yet another deadly centipede species in the world. It grows up to 30 cm in length accounting for one of the largest centipede species in the world.
Additionally, the insect is found in various places in South America and the Caribbean. Scientifically recognized as “Scolopendra gigantea”, the Peruvian giant centipede is lethal in terms of venom content.
Every year, at least one human falls for this centipede species. Further, a four-year-old died after being bitten by the Peruvian giant centipede in 2014 in Venezuela. Peruvian giant centipedes are furious enough to take down small vertebrates like frogs, lizards, snakes, mice, and bats.
1. Chinese red-headed centipede (Scolopendra subspines)
Chinese red-headed centipede is by far considered the most dangerous centipede in the world. Additionally, the centipede becomes one of the largest centipede species in the world.

Pokémon: the 10 coolest ghost-type pokémon.
Ghost-type Pokémon aren't numerous, but they are memorable. Here are some of the coolest Ghost monsters around.
Ghost-type Pokémon aren't numerous, but they are memorable. As the second-rarest type in the franchise after Ice, Ghosts rank as some of the most inaccessible Pokémon in the games. Despite this, they're well represented, with a Ghost-type specialist present in nearly every region , whether as a Gym Leader of Elite Four Member.
RELATED: 10 Dual-Type Dire Creatures To Try Out
They can be cute and sweet , like any other Pokémon type, but they can also be fierce, scary, and absolutely cool in both premise and execution. Ghosts generally share the same color scheme of dark and neutral colors, though some dare to step out of it. With unique and often disturbing inspirations behind them, these creatures haunt the Pokémon world with singular glee, enjoying the mayhem they provoke.
Introduced in Generation IV as an evolution for Gen II's forgotten and underrated Misdreavus, Mismagius quickly made a name for itself. It seems to be inspired by the concepts of witches and wizards, as indicated by its pointy hat.
Mismagius is said to cause misery or happiness to others, depending on its own mood and power. People that hear its cries will suffer headaches or hallucinations, indicating a possible connection to the banshee. A Special Attacker, Mismagius is fast but quite frail.
Another evolution introduced in Generation IV , Dusknoir is the final stage of Gen III's Duskull. Dusknoir seems to be based on the mythological Cyclops.
In the Pokémon world, Dusknoir functions as a Grim Reaper figure, guiding Pokémon to the spirit world based on indications transmitted to its antennae. Its belly mouth is capable of swallowing its target whole. Like Mismagius, it is extremely frail and slow, although its high defenses - both Physical and Special - make it the ideal tank.
First appearing in the Hoenn games, Banette is a pure Ghost-type that evolves from Shuppet at level 37. A former doll possessed by pure hatred, Banette is brought to life by a powerful grudge, an enduring concept that inspired horror movies like The Ring and The Grudge .
The zipper on its mouth keeps its life force safely hidden within. It uses its own body as a voodoo doll and inflicts powerful curses on others. It lives in garbage dumps and dark alleys, searching for the person that discarded. It is said that if its trainer treats it with enough respect and care, it will turn back to being a lifeless toy. Capable of Mega Evolving, Banette becomes such a vindictive force, it will even curse its own trainer.
Mimikyu's true appearance is unknown and it is said that anyone who sees it will be inflicted by a mysterious illness and die. A lonely Pokémon, Mimikyu is starved for care and attention, leading it to disguise itself as a Pikachu in an attempt to seem more appealing to others. It backfires, however, as the disguise makes it look even creepier.
RELATED: Pokémon: The 10-Cutest Fairy Types
Should anyone attempt to remove its disguise, Mimikyu will react savagely and viciously. Thanks to its unique Ghost/Fairy typing, Mimikyu has only two weaknesses and three immunities. Its signature move, Let's Snuggle Forever , is an upgraded version of the powerful Fairy move, Play Rough.
Alola's Grass starter, Decidueye is the final form of Rowlet. Cool and cautious by nature, it will overreact when surprised. The most capable archer in the Pokémon world , Decidueye's signature move, Spirit Shackle, can be enhanced via a Z-crystal, becoming the Z-Move Sinister Arrow Raid.
Decidueye is based on an owl and an archer, including some depictions of the classic English hero of legend, Robin Hood. Its Grass/Ghost typing gives it five different weaknesses, but also provides two immunities and four resistances, creating a nice balance.
One of the newest additions to the type, Dragapult is Galar's Pseudo-Legendary, as well as the first Pseudo with Ghost as a secondary typing. Dragapult and its pre-evolutions, Dreepy and Drakloak, are ghosts of prehistoric aquatic Pokémon. Dragpult carries a pair of Dreepy inside its horns, which it will fire like missiles.
Dragapult's design incorporates elements of a Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit, a stealth bomber aircraft that explains its incredibly high Speed stat. It may also be based on a Diplocaulus, an extinct amphibian that lived roughly 300 million years ago. Dragapult also shares similarities with catapults and trebuchets.
One of Sinnoh's most inspired Pokémon designs , Spiritomb is a dual-type Ghost/Dark Pokémon that's formed by a collection of 108 spirits trapped inside an Odd Keystone. Some of the spirits inside are evil, making Spirtomb a tough Pokémon to train.
Before the introduction of the Fairy-type, Spiritomb had no weaknesses, boasted three immunities, and had one resistance. It has incredibly high Defenses but is also incredibly slow.
In the pantheon of overpowered Pokémon, Aegislash holds a place of honor. A dual-type Steel/Ghost creature introduced in Generation VI, Aegislash has the ability to change forms during battle, depending on the moves it is using. Its stats will change along, with its Shield Form boasting ridiculously high Defense and Special Defense, while its Blade form grants it ridiculously high Attack and Special Attack.
RELATED: 10 Dual-Type Electric Creatures To Try Out
Weak to four types, Aegislash is immune to three and resistant to a whopping nine, making it one of the strongest Pokémon in the games. Perceptive and in possession of incredible spectral powers, Aegislash has attended and served generations of Kings.
The original Ghost-type Pokémon, Gengar used to be the strongest and coolest Ghost in the franchise. Mischievous and malicious, Gengar enjoys playing practical jokes and casting curses. Because of its immense popularity, Gengar is one of the few Pokémon to have both Mega Evolutions and Gigantamax forms.
In its Gintamax form, its enlarged mouth is said to lead into the afterlife itself. Indeed, if someone steps close enough to the mouth of a Gigantamax Gengar, they will hear the voices of their loved ones calling out for them. A dual-type Ghost/Poison mon, Gengar hits extremely hard and extremely fast, but its other stats are quite average.
The first Ghost-type Legendary Pokémon, Giratina is the representation of antimatter within the Pokémon world. A spectral centipede-like creature, Giratina seems to be based on the idea of a fallen angel. It rules over its own dimension, the Distortion World, a place where the laws of physics don't apply. Giratina may also be based on common portrayals of the Beasts of Revelation.
Like other Legendary Pokémon, Giratina is absurdly powerful, with extremely high HP and high Attack and Defense, both Special and Physical. Fans anxiously await to see it in the upcoming Sinnoh remakes , Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl .

Because S.aztecorum was once considered a synonym of S.viridis, however S.viridis does not occur in California and I don't believe S.aztecorum occurs in much farther north than San Diego (or so). So what is this ghost centipede from Northern California? Does anyone here on the board know the natural distribution of S.aztecorum?

NYAN said: When was it considered viridis? There have been a lot of really bad taxnonomy mistakes throughout history. That doesn’t really mean much in the end. They have been found in riverside county. You also have the Northern California variant of them. @BobBarley works with them and claims they are indeed aztecorum. Someone who works with North Americans Pedes drew me a range map which included a rough line from Baja California up pretty far north. I don’t believe that this was correct though. I think the species occurs from Baja to riverside, maybe a Orange County, and I’m not sure where to go after that. Click to expand...

CA Desert Rat
For size, I'm going to say about 10" body length. I saw one back in 1977 or so just east of Anza Borrego that was as long as my size 13 boot and had a body as wide as my thumb. I would have caught it, but IT WAS A FOOT LONG PEDE! I tried to push it into a bag with my foot, but it disappeared into the rocks. It was much bigger than the 6" to 7" S. heros that I've seen in AZ.

I have kept many Aztecs in my time and have never seen them get above 7in body length. S. Heros ghost on the other hand can get significantly larger from my experience, almost 8in.
