I was about to say if it was Australia that would be acceptable as that spider will not only kill you, it would hunt down your entire extended family and kill them as well.

Own up you pansy, it's just an ordinary house spider. Jab a stick in it's web and it'll run off and hide.


Now let's do a spider thread! Found this guy outside my front door a few days ago. What a beauty! Apparently it's called a Marbled Orb Weaver.

Got a fair number of spiders around our front door, feasting on the bugs that are attracted to the porch lights. First time I saw one like that, though!

I don't think that I am afraid of spiders per se, as I'll handle them on occasion. Yet when I see them, pictures of them, or depictions of them I feel a small measure of discomfort.

in his defense, spiders are scary.

one of my best friends in college lived in a basement apartment off campus.  she told she came home from class and there was a big wolf spider hanging underneath the stairway that led to her apartment.  i never went to her apartment again, just because she told me about the spider.  i never even saw the spider myself, she only told me about it, and that was enough for me to never go there again.

Whenever I see a spider, I have an automatic reaction of assassination.  I don't care what kind of spider it is, it's going to die.  If it's big and scary, I might scream like a girl (but I AM a girl, so I can.)  But then, I start looking around for an object to smash it to death.

Spiders are awesome.  I found a wolf spider living in my storage room the other day.  I grabbed a plastic tub from my recycling and escorted her outside.  My wife nearly shiat a brick when she saw it.  I still have no idea how such a large spider got into the room unless it grew up in there.

I scream like a girl when I see a large spider and I am not a girl.  This leads to me getting shiat from my friends for the next 4-6 months.

Here in NJ we have these largish fat brown spiders.  They make really big, awesome looking webs.  But they tend to put them in the most peculiar places.  Like, right across the back door or something.  I normally leave them be because they actually do a great service in ridding us of all those little flying bugs.  But they can be a real pain sometimes.

Case in point...  3 times this week, one of those built his web against the tree and the passanger side of my car.  The 1st two days, my son walked right into it.  The third day he came around the other side of the car.  But the confusion still stands for me.  Why was that spider so insistent on building his web there of all places?

I think I have close relatives of the Far Side slide spiders, because they always seem to spin right at chest level at my front door.  Every friggin year.

Spiders are nothing..... it's cave crickets and centipedes that try to steal your soul. They also slap grandmas.

One of the coolest things about spiders is how even a huge spider can fold itself all up inside your ear canal...

I do the spider relocation system.  Put a clear glass over them, slide an index card between the wall and the glass, put the glass outside, collect later.  Anything that eats houseflies is a friend o' mine!

This is why I'll never go to Australia; when spiders are as big as dinner plates, I accept that as the continent saying "no humans, please".

CSB: a friend of mine lives in Darwin and she told me about spiders there that bark.  As in like a dog.  If a spider ever barked at me, it wouldn't matter if it was poisonous, I would die from fright right on the spot.

That's actually a myth. It isn't the spider barking, it's the dog they ate inside them that's barking.....

My dad gathered a jumping spider from our house a long time ago that was pretty large, for a jumper. And every time he got close to it, it would growl. My mom kept thinking it was my dad growling at he spider, but in fact was the other way around.

//the spider in the pic from TFA is a barn spider. They are ugly as sin, but some of the most wicked flying insect eaters. Had one that lived at the outside corner of the garage. He just kept getting bigger, until he decided to build a web that intersected with our walkway. My dad moved him that day.

Why do spiders always want to live in my side-view mirrors? I recently had a spider hiding in the air vent in my car, but he emerged the other night and I had my son kill him. I hate to kill spiders, because I appreciate their bug-catching abilities, but when they pop up in the car and scare me when I'm driving, they have to die.

When she was young, my daughter had a catch-and-release program for spiders.  She'd even name them.

My son and I would share the same sensibilities: if there's a spider in the room, leave the room and call my for daughter.
