Of course there's a philosophical argument about whether the spider actually exists behind the clock...

If you suffer from an irrational fear of spiders,

Stop right there. There's nothing irrational about it... they've got 8 legs!! Anything with 8 legs must be feared! Also the multiple eyes don't help, and the way they move, and scurry really quickly towards you. Also some can kill, which therefore means all can kill. I'd rather be in a room with a mass murderer than a thousand "harmless" spiders.

And I ain't even arachnophobic, I just hate them. Rationally.

They're really, they're quite fearful, is my theory. They see us on stage with tight trousers. We've got, you know, armadillos in our trousers. I mean, it's really quite frightening, the size.

That's not a big spider. It's actually 4 or more medium sized spiders.

Man. I was in the drive-thru at Wendy's last night, and as I'm ordering, I see movement out of the corner of my eye... Huge ass spider running across the inside of my windshield. He ran up and under the passenger's side visor. I don't really mind spiders so I left him there, but on the way home he decided to go back down the windshield. *shiver*

Oh, that makes it much better. Thanks.

Not sure which is worse. 1 giant spider, or 4 medium size spiders.

So were the Spiders in the Harry Potter series shot as from Ron's perspective and they were actually quite small?

So what you're saying is psychology is real? Whoa!

If my experience with videogames has taught me anything, when you kill one giant spider it splits into four medium spiders.

Hrm... Off to make a game where that continues each time until the world of nano-spiders.

/ probably be easier with slimes, though: less legs.

If you're worried about spiders crawling into your ears at night and laying eggs just wear pantyhose on your head.

That's why sex with women who have an irrational fear of peni is better. It's because they think your penis is huge.

(I didn't learn that from your mother)

1 spider = 1 shot, 1 kill.
4 spiders = 4 shots, 4x chance of missing.

You do the math.

Small flying stingers... *shudder*

Generally, if it's small, fast, and can potentially cause me great pain, I'm not happy around it. Can't see well enough to track the little troublemakers...

CSB time -

I took over a big-box store in So Cal that had a room I didn't even know about until a morning drive-around revealed a water leak coming under the door. I went inside and called the maintenance man, and told him to check out the leak. He came back to my office and he was white as a ghost. Which was odd, since he was a five foot tall mexican Eddie Munster looking mother farker.

"Meester Sams, I don't go in there. there are aranas. Spiders."

I grabbed him by the collar, called him everything but a pussy, and we went out to the outside door to the room.The room held a giant Caterpillar engine and pump that maintained water pressure in case of a fire. Anyway, there were spider webs everywhere and at least a thousand black widow spiders. I am no arachnophobe but it was everything I could do to not shiat my pants.

+1 to Subby.

And I kinda like spiders - they eat mosquitoes, which is important in FL
 
2012-02-24 03:01:07 PM  
That's why I leave the mud daubers be. They eats the spiders. I watched a tarantula hawk go after a wolf spider twice it's size. It stung it, and dragged it half way across the back yard. That was badass.

/csb?
 
2012-02-24 03:01:12 PM  
the larger, and more inaccurate, they guessed the spiders to be.

Most spiders are pretty inaccurate anyway..

It's real, and it's worse than you think... the spider isn't eating the bird, they are mating - creating arachno-avians!

Winged spiders would be awesome. They would also be a great premise for some sort of Michael Caine movie.

That one made me shiver.

When I was a baby, there was a big ass spider hanging from the ceiling over my crib. Apparently I was crying up a storm and my mother came in and saw it. She got a broom and smacked it away then went outside and shook like a leaf.

At least I have a reason to hate those things....
