Keizer_Ghidorah: Uchiha_Cycliste: Keizer_Ghidorah: Ishkur: Meethos: I just dont get the irrational fear some of you have regarding spiders.

It's an evolutionary thing.

The two animals that man fears the most are spiders and snakes because those are the two classes of animals that possess the most lethal venom.

Cone snails, cube jellies, blue-ringed octopuses, and sea snakes say hi.

Aren'y Gila Monsters or Komodo Dragons or something pretty nasty too? Also, it may pedantic but are you confusing or conflating poison and toxin? If those are fair game what about Asian Hornet and African Ants?

Gila monsters and Komodo dragons have venom glands in their lower jaw that release into the saliva, entering the wound created by a bite. The Komodo's is rather weak and slows down blood clotting so the prey either bleeds to death or gets septicemia easier from the bacteria in its mouth. The Gila monster's is a bit stronger and can cause great pain and swelling to a human.

Cone snails harpoon prey with literal harpoon-like teeth that inject venom that directly affects the heart. Cube jellies aka sea wasps are jellyfish with venom so potent that they can kill a man in two minutes. Blue-ringed octopuses have a virulent venom that has no antidote and can kill in five minutes. Sea snakes, though not aggressive and rarely bite, also have potent venom with no known antidote that can take as long as eight hours to begin affecting a human but tend to be fatal.

Also, many sea urchins have either venom-filled spines or special structures on their bodies that resemble three-lobed flowers with a sharp claw on each corner attached to a venom sac. These structures grip anything that touches the urchin, functioning even if ripped from the urchin's body, and hold on until the toucher is dead from the venom that directly affects the heart.


And none of them are anything that a hominid (or our ancestors previous to hominids) would have encountered regularly, if at all. Can't evolve to have some innate fear of something unless a goodly portion of the species is under semi-constant threat by it.

Gila Monsters are definitely poisonous, but it's pretty damn unlikely you're going to run into one.  They spend close to their entire lives underground, and when they are out, they really aren't interesting in biting you unless you're stupid enough to go "Oooh, gila monster!" and try and grab it or something,  It just wants some sun.

The Hobo spider is worse. I get the fun of killing no less than a hundred each summer. Usually Mrs. Smurf finds them in the bathroom. Nasty little buggers and extremely aggressive.

/will live and die in my spider-free house

You best make room for one more because I will be moving in at the beginning of the week.

/survived a childhood FILLED with spiders

I hate to break it to y'all, but there are several species of spiders that have pretty much moved into the role of "house spiders" and have been doing so pretty much along with us as a species, because our domiciles are fantastic hunting grounds for critters that have pretty much become synonymous with human habitation. You see them, that means that critters of a less than generous nature where your foodstuffs and skin flakes and crumbs and such are concerned, and certainly all the biomass that works up in the walls, under the floors, and in your basements and attics, or just above the ceiling boards. BTW: the spiders are the good guys in these wee dramas, and hooking you up by playing predator to pests. Just sayin'...


this. Most spiders I let live in my house (so long as not a threat to me..brown recluse, brown widow, black widows). My MIL and mom go nuts when they visit and see cobwebs in the corners and kill all the spiders. I try to explain that every spider I see amounts to ten other bugs I don't see. I feel bad for a few spiders when they set up a web in a poor spot in the house. I have one that just moved into the soap dish holder in the guest bathroom, I don't think he will have much luck there. Anyone know how long spiders can go between meals?

daddy long-legs are my friends. Friend has some awesome pics of a spider who caught and killed a snake. need to post on flickr for future spider threads.

I laughed and laughed at the video.

As for this thread...ever since I was a little kid I've found everything about spiders to be really fascinating. I'm pretty amused by grown adults acting like they stared into the eyes of pure, real evil every time they see an arachnid they could squish with their pinkie finger.

I have some big tarantulas, and even those are still comparatively delicate and tiny compared to a person.

Amen.

Here here.

I just offer this one piece of info. My daughter is 4 and she enjoys My Little Pony. I was watching it with her one day and a group of ponies went to the bowling alley. There was a pony in the BG with a hair net. That caught my eye, and then I realized that the pony in question was dressed as Jesus from the Big Lebowski. I wont' say I understand bronies... but I have less disdain for them now.

/And honestly, MLP is far from the worst thing available for kids to watch... there's some terrifically bad children's programming out there

KrispyKritter: Lsherm: robbiex0r: Grown men afraid of spiders is the sissiest thing on the internet.

Not true.  I'm terrified of mice, too.

irrational fears are real true honest fears that exist. got that? or you going to freak out again and insist it's not irrational and they do exist. we know they exist. and you can be cured of them. man up and get some counseling. i've overcome fears that were so farked up you wouldn't want to be out in public knowing there are people like me standing next to you in the supermarket. i've overcome irrational fears. you can too.


Oh FFS - just because I'm afraid of them doesn't mean I can't take care of them.  I shot one with a pellet pistol last month at 10 feet.  The biggest problem with my "fear" is that it manifests itself as a slight OCD episode where I can't feel comfortable until I know I've killed a mouse if I see one.

Fortunately, I've become very adept at killing them since my cats are farking useless.

And I'm not afraid of spiders - they kill bugs, so they are alright in my book.  Snakes kill mice, so they're all good, too.

I hope not - that show is farking terrible.  Plus, I've never met a "good" biker.  They tend to be terrible people if they're in a club.

I can't say I've ever really known any bikers that were in a formal club, but I do meet a lot of riders. All of the bearded, burly Harley guys I know tend to be soft-spoken, philosophical, and ex-military. Mostly loners who ride with friends on occasion. The real dicks are usually the mid-life, weekend-warrior, lawyer-types. YMMV, of course. The fact that most of the guys who came back from Vietnam and climbed on a hog are getting too old to ride probably contributes to a sharp rise in the second category of people. Plus, my US residence is in a liberal area so there aren't a lot of militant racists and xenophobes looking to start gangs.

I ride sportbikes, and I'm part of a loose kind of "club", I guess. More like a team, really. We do track days together, and group rides a couple nights a week. They're all really good guys despite some of them being from various levels of nefarious background. (Though, if we passed you on the highway at 1am, you'd probably curse every one of us.)

Z-clipped: (Though, if we passed you on the highway at 1am, you'd probably curse every one of us.)


Passing on the highway is just fine, zip and you're gone and we both get on with our lives.

What makes me curse is when some of the local "bikers" block all four lanes of traffic and slow everyone down to 20mph so some of them can get a good long stretch of clear road so they can do top-end pulls.

Yeah, we don't pull that crap. That's just rude.
We do our top-end pulls in traffic so we don't hold anyone up. ; )
