Well that's the stuff of nightmares. Added bonus, it's about one suburb over from my house.

Time to trim back ALL the trees.

Hey subby, a half meter does not equal 1.5m.

Ooops, sorry, yes, musta misread that - distracted by the horror of it all.

Good goddamn, I'm so glad those things don't live over here. It's bad enough dealing with our politicians without having to run into Shelob every time you go to mow your lawn. fark. That. shiat.

I don't like spiders and snakes
The way they crawl, the way they shake
if a spider gets killed how does that make it rain
How could I be the one to blame

A whisper drizzled down from the ice in its eyes
it said, "Try pickin' on your own damn size,"
But the Hoover was quick, termination complete
in its bedroom home got a chance to eat.

The cute ones too I'm afraid. I work with wild koalas at the moment. A pissed off wild koala will tear you to shreds with its enormous claws and has a set of fangs you don't want to mess with. We don't give those ones to Oprah to cuddle.

All loves have to die - of that there's no help.
My favourite way to end em'
Is the orb-weaver spider's, whose pedipalp
Enters the female pudendum,

Then dies on the spot, his corpse there still stuck,
Left for his rivals to curse it.
He would rather die than not get to fark.
Personally, I reckon it's worth it

When I was staying along The Great Ocean Road the local literature mentioned "carnivorous snails". I thought to myself, a) Good god, even the snails here are out to get you, and b) wouldn't that be an embarrassing way to go.

That's a lot of snakes for one spider to eat...
 
2012-04-20 06:06:19 AM  
Now reading comments from link. The picture on the left clearly shows a yellow string tied to the spider with a nice bow knot. That's a crafty spider.
 
2012-04-20 06:12:16 AM  
Mr Hadleigh said the same spider devoured a wasp the day before, after an aggressive sparring match between both creatures.

I saw wasp versus spider once. The spider was ground bound and the wasp chopped him up from the air. I wanted the spider to win because I hate wasps.

But, kangaroos....oh, wait - they will disembowel you with a single kick. But at least the platypus....no, they're venomous.
Well, anyway, the people......no, wait, they're all drunken savages.
Oh well.

2wolves: Can the next Survivor series be set in Australia? They need a body count to up the ratings.


The second series of Survivor was set in Australia. Some guy had to be medically evacuated because he was so weak from hunger that he passed out as he was tending the fire, fell into the flames, and suffered third degree burns to his hands. Good times.

The other week I was doing the washing, getting all the pet rugs into the machine...all good. I go to get the washing out of the tub when it's finished and get to the bottom of the clothes and hear a bit of a thud. I look down and find a curled up funnel web, about an inch across so female, still in one piece and dead as a door nail.

I live where all those spiders live and I know I should have been more careful. I sh*t myself for being so farking stupid. I was lucky it didn't bite me when I put everything into the machine.

lol, that was memorable

Mind you, I thought they had it pretty easy really...

was that the episode where the rice floated down the river? I kept imagining the cameraman laughing his arse off and trying to keep the camera steady ( whatever episode that was )

This reminds me of the mythical Chinese gu poison. You fill a box with a hundred poisonous creepy-crawlies and bury it. After a specified amount of time, you dig it up, and find that all the critters have eaten each other until there is only one left, which has concentrated all the toxins into a super duper deadly venom.

The fact that we've made it this far into the comments without a bunch of spider pics proves how horrible that farker is.

Not sure which episode it was, but the guy whose hands got burned may have been the same guy who went all "Lord of the Flies"/"Apocalypse Now" with the tribe's machete when a small wild pig ventured into the camp one day.

'Twas a very different show back then...

That reminds me. Some of the wood emits poisonous smoke when burned. Yes, even the shrubbery is out to kill you.

I will be incorporating this idea into my next D&D campaign.

Giant spiders I already had.
