Ok I'm sure a few of our Fark Independents will come in and make some unfunny jokes. And some libs will over react.

But this is awesome. I want a creature that looks like a monster named after me. I'd work to become president/nobel prize winner/celebrity just to make that happen.

I think spiders are cool, until I find one in the house, and then I'm all like

YIKES!!! WHAT THE F*CK IS THIS SH*T!!!!

.....and I run from the room screaming like a little girl.

\which is all true, except for the screaming like a little girl part.

So they named a backdoor spider after a man that likes to knock at the back door of other men, NTTAWWT.

Oh, trapdoor. Now that's just odd.
 
2012-12-21 10:56:34 AM
The men don't know but the little girls understand.

Considering how the trapdoor spider operates, it's a good use of the name.

Why do they have 10 legs?
 
2012-12-21 11:33:14 AM
I thought it was against Nomenclature rules to name species after political figures. Might only be that way with plants though.

spawn73: Why do they have 10 legs?


Because you touch yourself in the night.

If you'd just stop, they'd go back to having the normal 8.

Colin Wilson's "Spider World" got me over my arachnophobia.

This is just further proof that the world's so-called "SCIENTIFIC" community is under the iron thumb of George Soros, who plans to use these spiders to destroy the global markets and America Itself.

I am a horrible arachnophobe but I adore jumping spiders.  They're the only ones that I let stay in the house when I find  them.  The big guys are great because if you put your finger next to them, they rear up like they're going to pull some kind of kung-fu on you.

How do you "discover" 33 new species at once? Were they all hiding in the same place?
 
2012-12-21 10:43:38 PM
I am beginning to have less and less respect for these beings who call themselves scientists.
