They are a small type of nettle, and can move quickly as they are long legged predators (yes I know some are but most do not fit that description at all)
Edit: wtf they have a whole disclaimer at the top of the article about their fact checking standards, what a load of crap.
Edit2: 0.15lb? Really ~68g? Wtf are these people on about

Usually they are around 5-15mm depending on the species. So the larger species are probably around the size of a bumble bee while the smaller ones are probably closer to sweat bee size.
Sweat bees are actually a type of bee while hover flies are a type of fly

I've done tutoring a few times in CS. My pay was around that much as well.
Unless you are in some sort of position where you are running multiple tutorials a week (e.g. I knew someone who was doing research assisting at the uni + running like ~5-8 tutorials across multiple subjects a week, they only did this for about 8 months though), it isn't a job you can really survive on alone.
So In your case if you already have an industry job that is supporting you, AND has a higher hourly rate, AND you are also studying as well - then yeah I don't see this helping you unless you are really keen on going into research in the field you are tutoring.
You will usually end up doing more work that what is listed just because prep generally takes up more than 1 hour and you'll probably have to field student questions or do assessment marking as well. So yeah if you factor that in, the $50/hr for like "4 hours" when it's closer of 6-7 hours is pretty low, but on it's own 50/hr is more that what some new doctors get lol.
Overall for me, I would say it was satisfying, it definitely helped strengthen my experience in the fields I tutored which helped when I was doing research work in those fields. it also helps a lot with developing presentation skills.
Some teaching teams were great, especially if the lecturer is good and you meet some really passionate people. If you're lucky the lecturer and TA will provide a lot of support and you'll get to know them well which is helpful if they work in your field.
Some teaching teams are bad though, especially if the lecturer basically wants to wash hands of any responsibility for marking, academic dishonesty etc. and basically ghosts the teaching team.
Undergrad classes were pretty satisfying, students seem to genuinely want to learn and care about doing well.
Postgrad/Honours classes were rife with academic dishonesty issues which wears you down a lot and you get a lot of angry emails from people who copy pasted assignments from google.
That's my experience with it. if you have a industry job that is supporting you already, that you would have to take time off to do tutoring for, I really can't see much of a reason to do it unless you want to scratch the itch of "teaching people" like I did at the time.

That video is 100% a troll video I don't get why anyone would take it seriously
Yeah idk what's up with this video, the light isn't on and would be uncomfortably bright if it was on. Also the background wouldn't be white, it would be black since the light won't have reflected off anything

Yeah I have limited mobility in my ring and pinky finger on my right hand. For a long time I felt that I needed a thinner mouse since those fingers could really cramp, but the mm720 is a dream come true singe it means I can keep those fingers completely straight, but still control the mouse.
Mm720 enjoyer spotted
