Today, as I was using my mom's computer, a spider crawled onto the screen. So as per my usual reaction to seeing a spider, I smashed it as fast as I could. I missed the spider, but now I have to buy my mom a new monitor. FML

Ooh! Nice one. D: I feel your pain, man, I hate spiders hahah.

Why would you hate spiders? Their elegance is to be desired. Especially the big'uns down here in Aus. Their harmless, but huge and great for getting the ol' adrenalin pumping. Nothing like the old fight gland, huh?

Harmless? funnel-web? wolf spider? Okay, they're not overly toxic, but very aggressive and their bite hurts like hell!

@60: I'll rephrase for him. They're harmless as long as you don't **** around with them like an immature child. It's not like they go "hunting for human children to kill." They only lash out when hungry or threatened, and since "human" isn't a norm on any spider's diet, there's only one option left.

2 stupid dogs? really? dam its been years since I've seen that

my reaction is walking away getting a paper towel and killing it without breaking anything. works great :)

I wonder how you manage to break a screen by simply hitting it once... I once hit an LCD screen trying to kill a fly, it fell off the table. Apart from a crack in the casing, it worked fine (the crack wasn't even that big).

I'll never understand why so many people seem to be offended by the mere existence of other creatures. It's really not hard to capture a spider in a container and toss it outside. They're even kind of cool if you can resist the urge to squish everything and instead take a minute to look at one.

Win! And if you're smart, you leave a couple of nature's little mozzie catchers in appropriate corners of your home. Although funnel webs and red-back should be escorted outside in tupperware carriages asap!

i got really sick from a mozzie bite when i was 8, i was in hospital for about a week. So whenever i see one of them i'm gunna make sure they pay.

#24 speaks the truth: I'm more afraid of mozzies than I am of spiders (even our lovely toxic ones). We have giant mozzies - Hexham Greys and they carry Ross River virus and all sorts of lovely viruses, not to mention hurting lots when they jab you :( Kill the mozzies, save the spiders.
