Yep, I'm seeing them out walking across the highways in New Mexico.  I didn't realize we are America's Best State.

Best State and no Florida tag.. hmmmm, Arizona or Texas then... [click] ..Did not see that coming. Colorado is mostly better than "best".

I didn't know that there were tarantulas in the state of denial.

Quite a while back my youngest son had a basement apartment in a suburb of Denver. My son screamed and pointed at one by my chair. I knew I didn't want to try to save something that might bite me so I flatten it with my shoe. People tell me it was probably a wolf spider, not a tarantula. All I know it was big, hairy, and with a lot of eyes.

tarantulas prefer humid weather for their eggs


Huh. I just assumed that they gave live birth.

If we're going by where the most people want to live, versus where they are now... that'd be my home state.

Probably was a wolf spider.  You don't want to squish tarantulas, they'll make a huge mess.  Just get a long-handled dust pan or a snow shovel and evict it.

Went cross country once in September.  Only place it snowed, and the people there were either dumb as hell or kind enough to let one of us drink underage at this roadside slot parlor. Beautiful country though.

Wolf spiders and tarantulas are good to keep around your property.  They ignore humans and eat pests.

I don't even understand what you're trying to say with that metric. Basically no one wants to live in Montana based on the fact that it is super cheap to live there and basically no one does love in Montana.

The worst part is that it's so farking dry and so cold.

Otherwise I really like it there.
