Bathysphere: SearchN: Bathysphere: Oh yeah, and I just found out Colorado has giant, tarantula sized spiders that aren't tarantulas. Wtf? Discovered this the hard way when I opened the door one morning, and found a fist sized creature sitting on my doormat. I actually said out loud, "nope" and shut the door. It left some time later.What area of CO are you in? Largest I have seen was maybe 3/4th's of an inch.Denver metro area. I like spiders, I'm a spider person, but a big strange spider is like a big strange dog. This thing was the biggest goddamn wild spider I have ever seen.
Resident Muslim: What is it with the trend of Fark spider threads?Not that I'm complaining.Also, for the people joking about spiders spreading their web where they usually walk, don't you wonder if those guys are looking for a challenge??
UtileDysfunktion: I don't mind the spiders so much as the house centipedes. Spiders just go about being spiders when you're around, they don't care. The house centipedes see you and they dart around trying to hide, like cockroaches. Problem is, they're really bad at it. They think that if they can't see you, you can't see them either.I was getting ready for work and set my lunch bag down on the kitchen counter for just a few seconds while I grabbed something else. Go to pick up the bag and notice around 50 legs poking out from underneath. (pick up bag... smack... off to work...)
CleanAndPure: Doesn't surprise me... predators usually are amongst the most intelligent creatures...... and roaches have as much intelligence as many small mammels.... remember that next time you squish one... you're killing an intelligent creature.
WTFDYW: WooHoo! Spider thread?
HawgWild: I, for the most part, don't kill spiders. Spiders eat those insects and other bugs that annoy me. So I leave them alone.Unless, of course, they descend from above and crawl on me. In that case, I do the manly thing and run around in circles, arms flailing, screaming "Get it off! Get IT OFF! GETITOFFGETITOFFGETITOFF!"
