Holding the secret to life?

I wrote this about a co-worker of mine, because it is suspected he really does hold some valuable life secrets without knowing it. Or caring. As reported in Hubpages:

"These days velocity trumps size and quality, and the whole objective to living seems to be just hanging on instead of winning -- or even finishing -- the race. You merely try to cope. But someone with Alan's mindset seems to cope better than most. As I once said with tongue firmly implanted in cheek, Alan holds the secret to life. We even have a key phrase around the shop: 'What Would Alan Do?' "

That's one weird-looking bug ...

...anyone know what it is?

This ugly bugger was seen at work. About three inches long, big ol' legs, and some sac or tube running the length of its body. It just sits there, and nothing seems to faze it. Considering we do shipping at work (containers by rail, by truck, and by ship) the bug could be from anywhere.

What say you?
