Eventually he snorted and blew out the 2.5cm (1in) arachnid into a sink.

Reminds me of the scene from the Star Trek movie, when Chekov got the worm/bug/roach thing put in his ear. That still creeps me out.

I could keep going because really there aren't enough NOPE NOPE NOPE to go around.

Though.... True story: A few months ago, I'm getting ready for work. Coffee: Drinked. Gathering my stuff, hardly awake, find glasses on table. Put them on.

Spider. Sitting on the right hand lens.

Yes. I woke up, about to go to work, and found myself with a spider's asshole scant millimeters from my eyeball.

After I'd flung my glasses across the room (and stopped screaming like a little biatch), I found that little bastard and turned him into a smear that went for about 15" across my floor.

Woke up a few weeks ago to see a scorpion crawling very slowly towards my face.  Haven't been that awake, that quickly in my entire life.

I do often get trolled by bugs, but usually spiders I let live.... except in situations like this and a few previous.

In that case?

It could be worse. There was a story about a woman with a family of spiders in her ear. She could hear baby spiders walking across her eardrum.

Friend was mowing his lawn and had a moth fly directly into his ear. He freaked out, moth freaked out, clawing on his eardrum. Drove him to the hospital with him in hysterics saying he felt like he was possessed. Had to yank the farker out with tweezery type tools.

This is why I never mow my lawn.

Generally I don't mind spiders, I tend to let them live if Mrs Feed_The_walrus doesn't spot them.

But this, this would freak me the fark out!

Ok WHAT is that giant steaming pile of NOPE from?!

I was photographing a stink bug yesterday when a jumping spider decided I was too close to his buddy and leapt onto my hand.  Thankfully I didn't drop the camera but oh GOD did I scream.

One summer between college semesters, I was home and reading in bed when I noticed a brown and white spider crawling down the wall beside me. Not wanting it to crawl onto my bed after I went to sleep, I tried to get it on a piece of paper so I could throw it outside. The spider climbed onto the paper, then jumped off...landing on the brown and white carpet on the floor, where it promptly blended into the pattern.

I never found it again; I also didn't sleep well that night at all.

My mother once hit a wolf spider with a shoe one night; it exploded all over the place with little babies jumping away and running everywhere. She screamed and ran into the bedroom and didn't come out until my dad got home from work (he was on 2nd shift).

/at least the house didn't have any bugs for a while

Well... I have nothing against spiders, but this story is definitely, well, unpleasant. All those little legs scratching around in your ear.... ugh.

In the end, it doesn't sound all that pleasant for the spider, either. All it probably wanted was a dark, warm place to relax in. But all it found was wax, snot, tweezers and pain. Basically, it was a bad day for both man and spider.

/And the spider is probably dead
//So... a really bad day for the spider

Jumping spiders have incredible vision, and they will apparently jump on anything that gets close enough. It makes them very easy to take outside when the girlfriend complains of them in her room. I just stick my hand out and it hops on and I walk it out.

They're the ONLY variety of spider I'm not scared to death of, and I have no idea why.

Curiously enough, I'm the same way. Jumping spiders I'm fine with. I won't let them on me, but I'll try my best to leave them be or get them outside. Any other kind of spider, depends on where I am. If I'm outside, then it's their turf and I'll leave them be. If they come into my apartment, that's an act of war.

To be honest though, since I started Farking, I've gotten loads better. Years ago, a thread like this would have had me panicking and I'd have had good ol' I want your skull there on ignore, now I've got IWYS favorited just with a 'never click his links' warning.

I don't know if this one is, but a long time ago when I used to work 911 and dispatch, we'd get a call on midnight shift about once a month from someone who had a cockroach crawl in his or her partner's ear and get stuck.  The victim was too busy screaming in pain to call.  Imagine six barbed legs scratching furiously against the bottom of your ear canal and you understand.  The EMTs would spray some alcohol in there to stun the bug and pull it out with tweezers, then be on their way.
