|As a false example of an IQ-test question-genre, I was asked "Spiders are to angels as ravens are to ....?"
I have an answer, but want to know what other people think. Tell me
|Aha. The spider/angel analogy can be drawn by how spiders lined up at dawn in a manner similar to angels in "Wings of Desire" or "City of Angels." And many movies portray the undead as scavengers. Mmmm. Eyes. Or you can use the whole "The Crow" angle, if you prefer.|
|Archangels. Because ravens outrank spiders for Goth paraphernalia points.|
Actually I think it might have been beetles that lined up to catch dew, in the Sahara, rather than spiders. Stop that meme!
