Arachnids with lobster-like pincers and tails bearing stingers. Scorpions have existed for a long time (the oldest known fossils are 400 million years old, and some early scorpions were much bigger than those of today - the fossilized Brontoscorpio and Gigantoscorpio are estimated to have been a metre long each in life). Scorpions possess a pair of feather-like forms under their stomachs which they use to 'feel' the ground for vibrations which could tell of nearby predators or prey. When mating, the male scorpion grasps the female by the pincers, deposits a 'package' of sperm onto the ground and then pulls the female over it, so she can lower herself and absorb it through an opening in her body. Despite their fearsome reputation, scorpions are not all dangerous. In fact many, like the Emperor Scorpions from West Africa and Black Forest Scorpions from Asia are harmless. A way of determining as to whether a scorpion may be dangerous is to look at its pincers. Harmless scorpions like Emperors and Black Forests have large strong pincers and relatively small tails. At the other end of the scale are the dreaded Fat-tail Scorpions, which have small, slender pincers and large muscular tails which can drive their deadly stingers through shoes. Scorpions exist in tropical, desert and scrubland environments.
Emperor Scorpions, Redclaw Scorpions, Black Forest Scorpions, Egyptian Gold Scorpions - all harmless, as I can assure you since I've kept them as pets in the past.
I'd just like to mention Spike, the grandmother of my family of Emperor Scorpions (now sadly all deceased). RIP Spike.

A undead Spectre. His name was Hanzo Hasashi and he was once alive and was a ninja in a clan of assassins. He was killed by a rival clan member, Sub-Zero, and was cast into the Netherrealm. He returned to kill Sub-Zero, but later vowed to protect his younger brother in the future. He is not evil, but he is not good, either. Recently was "killed" by being thrown into Shang Tsung's Soulnado and was ripped apart by it's heavenly power.
Scorpion, the ninja Spectre, can use a spear. "Get over here!"

A sexual act generally performed by three homosexual men. The first man is the unwitting party or "victim", the second is the man he believes will be having regular doggy style anal with him, or the "scorpion". The third man (or "scorpion tail"), known to the scorpion but unknown to the victim, grips the ass of the scorpion, upside down and facing the scorpion's back, as soon as the second man starts to fuck the first man.

Then, at a time predetermined through some sort of signal (from a code word to something as subtle as a gentle undulation of the asscheeks, perceptible only to the third man whose hands eagerly await the message), the scorpion pulls out and drops (perhaps after ejaculation, in some cases having already pulled out to ejaculate on the victim's back before dropping), and the scorpion tail's erect cock delves hungrily into the victim's ass.

In handkerchief code, or "flagging", of the gay community, this is a black and white bandana covered in scorpions that says "I LOVE SCORPION" on it, left side for the scorpion, right side for a knowing and willing victim (rare, but they do exist) and hanging out the back like a tail for scorpion tails.
"Aaron thought that Tyson just wanted to buttfuck him, but he had no idea I was the tail in that scorpion."

This German-bred hard rock band became one of the biggest attractions in the 198's heavy metal scene with radio-friendly hits like "Rock You Like A Hurricane," "No One Like You," "Big City Nights" and "Winds Of Change." Founded by shrieking, frizzy-haired vocalist Klaus Meine and flamboyant, spandex-clad rhythm guitarist Rudolph Schenker, the Scorpions have had the honor of having almost as many interchangeable sidemen over the years as Spinal Tap. While most of them have gone on to wallow in rock 'n' roll obscurity (remember "Hermen Z German"? I thought not), the Scorpions have managed to feature some truly great lead guitar players throughout their career--including Rudolph's younger brother, ex-UFO/MSG mad axeman Michael Schenker, the psychedelic and inspired Uli John Roth, and current six-string shredder Mathias Jabs.

The Scorpions began in Hanover, Germany in 1964 as a garage band featuring Meine and Schenker. After several years of playing around Germany, the band broke up due to lack of success. They got back together to record the soundtrack to an obscure movie called The Cold Paradise; it was released as their debut album Lonesome Crow, the band toured to support it, and then broke up again. They reformed, toured again, and finally got a record deal. However, the band members had to fulfill their required time in the German army and the band was put on hold. When they got out, they enlisted the guitar duties of Uli John Roth, as sometimes-guitarist Michael Schenker was recruited by UFO, and recorded Fly To The Rainbow. Several more line-up changes later, the band honed their sound to a definable, sometimes memorable science on their third effort In Trance, the first recording with long-time producer Dieter Dierks. Next came the controversial, but classic Virgin Killer, whose sexist album cover was banned all over the planet. Several albums later, the band hit the big time with their breakthrough '80s classic Blackout. Already a huge live attraction, the band cemented their American stranglehold with the radio staple "No One Like You," the first of many hits to come. Their follow-up, Love At First Sting, was even bigger and featured several radio/MTV hits, such as "Big City Nights" and their anthem "Rock You Like A Hurricane." From 1982 to 1990 the band churned out hit after hit, and dominated the '80s heavy metal movement lead by such acts as Van Halen, Judas Priest, Ozzy Osbourne, Motley Crue, and Bon Jovi. The Scorpions were always one of the biggest non-American bands to find multi-platinum success in the fickle American market place. Just when the metal scene started to fizzle out, and the Scorpions' popularity seemed as if it might come to an end, the German warriors came back with their biggest hit yet, "Winds Of Change," a power ballad that capitalized on the fall of the Berlin Wall. Still, after riding the winds of success for a couple of years, the Scorpions' popularity inevitably began to fade. Several more records of metal-lite proved to nail the coffin shut for the German wonderboys.

Continuing to put out albums, the Scorpions are still able to pack houses; it's just that the houses have shrunk from arenas to amphitheaters. Still, for a one-dimensional heavy metal band, they have managed to carve out one hell of a long career for themselves. Always a favorite among heavy metal diehards, the Scorpions will always have the distinction of bringing the world three great guitar players, an anthem of freedom for Berlin, and whole mess of fashion faux pas.
"Winds Of Change" is their biggest hit yet.
