Don't kill it like that...chances are it will run away as spiders are very fast....Here is the best technique, imo (my sister has arachnophobia, and many people around me have varying degrees of it so I am the "spidercatcher"): You need : a glass (choose the size depending on the size of the spider), a postcard or thin piece of card. Method: take the glass and gently place over the spider. Take card, slide under glass without lifting the glass too high (so mister/miss/mrs spide

there's a difference between being afraid of spiders and aracnaphobia people. A phobia is a fear that is strong enough to prevent you from living a normal life

how do you hit yourself in the face? that just tells you how much coordination you have. plus u fell. not to mention you still have a spider in your house somewhere. I hope u wake up and find it on ur chest. that would be funny.

The itsy bitsy spider crawled up and made you shout! Down came the shoe and knocked the dummy out And the itsy bitsy spider ran the fuck away! Shit op is arachnocidal!

I thought the suffix "phobia" meant immense fear. Correct me if I'm wrong, but if OP really did have arachnophobia, she should not be trying to kill it, rather cry and cower in the corner. I wouldn't call it a phobia, just a stupid childish fear. YDI for being an idiot scared of something many hundred (maybe thousand) times smaller than you.

No need to be rude, I just thought wrongly. You can't truthfully say you haven't, so don't start acting all high and mighty just because you knew something I did not. And for all we know, I could be correct and you imcorrect.

Also, before you call someone atupid, you must first prove that you aren't. Apparently, your inability to use punctuation and the correct "you're" agree with me here.

How the heck do you go and smack yourself so hard you fall backwards? Spiders don't take that much force to kill, OP. And work on your aim.

Get a life Blankaex. By the way, before you go off being a grammar Nazi, you might want to spell "stupid" right next time.

how do you not know what a phobia is? don't they teach you anything in school and stop trying to be a grammar Nazi silly.

I actually agree with 83. I have 3 phobias, that send me into panic attacks and immense fear. My other fears (I am a bit of a chicken) are just fears. Phobias are much more intense.

it's a mental disorder. if you had one you would know that regardless what the object is(spiders, clowns, germs,etc) the person can't deal with it. A person without arachnaphobia would just squish it with a tissue or leave it be. But a person with it would want it dead right away and use anything at there disposal(usually something long)

If you use punctuation as you argument against stupidity, the least you could do is spell correctly

It's NOT a phobia. I was just about to say that. A true phobic wouldn't be able to have the composure to kill a spider. They'd either run off near/in tears or faint. This happens a lot. People tends to dramatize their lives in order to sound more interesting. It's not a phobia. It's just a fear.

Reply

But a person with a real phobia wouldn't be able to handle the spider on their own. Like I said to another commenter: they'd either run out of there quick or faint. Take it from a psychology student who has taken more then a couple courses on Deviancy and Disorders: This person does NOT have a phobia of spiders if they're willing to go out and kill it.

Didn't I just show I knew that a phobia is a fear? I was just POLITELY inquiring the, ah, greatness of the fear. And I'm not trying to be an annoying little grammar nazi, just showing someone the pre-resquisites of a baseless accusiation. And I know how to spell "stupid", it was a typo and it wouldn't post the fix. Just because it was misspelt doesn't mean I don't know how to spell it. Again with the groundless accusiations... I'm not trying to start an argument, just asking for an answer.

I am so disappointed in you OP. Next time, grab any type of can with some sort of liquid in it and start spraying the bastard. Once he's curled up, stomp his ass!

turtle- The little girl is my daughter, and she's 3. But she would have corrected the grammar, too. Yes, I'm bringing her up to speak (and write) correctly. It doesn't make me a grammar Nazi, just a good father.

Sorry if this comes across the wrong way but why would post a picture of your 3 year old daughter as your profile picture on the Internet? Once it's on the Internet it's gonna be difficult to ever get rid of it. There are some sick bastards in this world who feed off people who post pictures of their kids online.

this will make you feel better... the average person swallows seven spiders while sleeping in their lifetime...

Reply

This will make *you* feel better... that's not true. It was made up as an example that people will believe anything they read online, no matter how ridiculous. Snope that shit!

Reply

Really, 144? You want to argue from that stance? OK, here we go... *deep breath* I did not say "No one in the history of the human race has ever swallowed a spider while sleeping," nor did I say "Such a thing is completely and totally inconceivable. I can guarantee, as a fact, that this will never happen to you." I said that particular "fact", that the /average/ person swallows /seven/ spiders while asleep during the course of a lifetime, isn't true. Who in his right mind would want to conduct

Lol, thanks and you're welcome, 162. I admit I overreacted a bit there, since I was STILL awake, in pain, and thus bitchy at the time. Glad it helped someone. ;]

This is actually not true, spiders dont like dark and wet spaces so they wont go in your mouth ;)

Thanks for the compliment!!!! It's always nice to be told you have the ability to make people laugh :-) As for the huge hairy spiders, I'm with you on that....that's why my favourite is to put them down the drain (and edit at this point, I see in US it's "itsy bitsy spider" so that's the song I was referring to) and put product down just to be sure.....You also seem to have the same fear I have with bees & wasps (revenge)....I'm always scared that if I squish one, it will send

Reply

Haha Spidercatcher, nice! I use the glass/postcard technique too. Once I caught one in a plastic cup and went to put it outside. It was really dark and I shook the cup hoping to shake the spider out. I couldn't see to the bottom of the cup so I wasn't sure he/she had fallen out so I left the cup outside just incase. :) I don't want no cheeky spider clinging onto the cup and sneaking it's way back into the house. ^_^

I'm sorry. Hitting you over the head with this bat, was an ac-cid-ent. Although, I'm afraid my, homi-cid-al tendencies are showing. I'm in a state of pure lu-cid-ity.

Reply

That wasn't a repeat, asshole! Oh, was I supposed to use a word with "cid" in it. This is ridiculous! cid backwards! Muahahahaha *runs away with the gold*

Furthermore, I would like to indicate that I'm highly addicted to your dick. Dick meaning the store that you own, of course. I truly hope they have medicine for your ludicrous behavior.
