So that spider who makes a web across my front door at face level every morning isn't following his natural instincts, he's just being a douchebag?

Well fark him.

I found a spider this weekend that had hung itself.  I thought it was an accident, but now I'm not so sure..

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??

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.

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!"

We have a beast of a wolf spider living in our garage.  It's so huge that my wife initially thought it was a mouse.  It keeps the garage clear of everything.  I know exactly where it lives and give it space, lol.  Sometimes, when I pull in to the garage at night, the beast is sitting smack in the middle of the garage as if saying "Come at me bro" to all of the bugs.  I've tried to catch it before so that I can take a picture but it's so freaking fast that I have failed every time.

MadAzza: SearchN: Oh, and to you farkers in HI and FL.. Enjoy.

What the fark? I live in Hawaii. I've been bitten by a shark, stung by a scorpion, stung by a centipede ... I've had more bizarre shiat like that happen than anyone I know, and now I have to worry about foot-wide spiders?? WHAT THE F*CK?

I hate you for making me aware of that thing.


Hey, it's not just foot-wide spider. It's a blindingly FAST foot-wide spider that moves sideways, leaps on its prey and has an incomprehensibly painful bite. Sweet dreams!

I usually have a live-and-let-live philosophy when it comes to spiders, but this morning I went into my daughter's bedroom to help her find her shoes and a spider was hanging from the ceiling fan right in front of my face. The last thing that went through his head may have been feelings of depression, followed quickly by my hand.

My husband asked me to take the large daddy long legs spider out of the bathroom before he left for work this morning. I asked "Are you sure? He's been doing a really good job spidering in there." But he wants the spider out because he says that breed are slobs.

WelldeadLink: How many spiders did they psychoanalyze? Did none of them enjoy being killed? Did some of them not care? Was this just a non-scientific poll on the web?


I know of a secret trick for finding out what it says in an article.

I'm fine with spiders as long as they stay on the walls or ceiling.  If they touch the floor, I worry that they'll be near my feet and I wont see them crawl towards me, and if they come onto the furniture, that's just breaking the deal.  both violations of the peace accord result in extreme sanctions.

CSB time!

I've got a big, hairy spider living on one of my pillar lamps. Most of the time; he just hangs out(get it?) wayyyy below the on switch. The other day; he was on the cone of shame part and jumped onto my hand. My immediate response was to scream, like a little girl, and wave my hand about. He jumped off of my hand and I haven't seen him above the base of the lamp in 2 months.

/ no spiders were harmed in this production

I can understand them being upset of you kill them.  If you're killed, you've lost a very important part of your life.
