126 actually, the original song was Spiderman's theme song. "spiderman, spiderman, does whatever a spider can, spins a web, any size, catching bad guys, just like flies, look out, here comes spiderman" Of course you would know this if you met the minimum age requirement to be a poster on FML without a parent supervision
How do u impress someone by showing the smashes remains of a dead spider?

Oh gosh, he was probably just trying to make himself look "cool" in front of her. But in reality, a girl wouldn't find that charming, cool or cute...we'd find it absolutely disgusting (well, the majority)
26- Today, faced the of spiders. Smashed goddamned shit of. Trying impress cute roommate, scooped the and him. Was pet. FL or I down Godzilla all. I the holy out it. To my new, I up remains showed. It his tarantula. M If you read just the first one, you kinda get the gist of it. The second one, not so much.
I would have done the same thing. The spider should not have been crawling around free, and he should have told u about his pet when moving in.
Most people who claim to be arachnaphobes are really "arachnaphobes.". If op had arachnaphobia she wouldn't have been able to tolerate being in the same room, much less walk up to it and kill it. Op probably saw the spider and hatched her so brilliant plan to kill the spider and impress the guy. Both op and the owner were at fault.
A) Arachnophobia manifests itself in different ways to different people. Some people have a fight response, others have a flight response, or a combination of both. B) If the OP were perfectly fine with the spider, why would she kill it? Whether what the OP has fits the "true" definition of arachnophobia is irrelevant. C) You can't extrapolate that the OP did it simply to impress her roommate. All we know is that she reacted to the spider's presence by killing it and then showed her roommate to impress him. That doesn't mean that she killed the spider in order to impress him.
A) You are correct about flight or fight response. But you really think someone with arachnaphobia would be able to go near the corpse, shovel it up and show it off? If OP's can do that, then I'd say she has some measure of control over her phobia. B) You made the term arachnaphobia relevant when you used it to make a point. Whether op actually has the phobia or not would matter in an apology. C) I make dry, cynical remarks sometimes. However, if op had arachnaphobia, it would have likely to have been mentioned as it would've been rather relevant exposition that motivated her behavior that helped create the fml. Or at least, it should've been mentioned.
Forgive me if I'm mistaken but I'm pretty sure tarantulas are much more docile than most other spiders and only attack when they feel threatened. Also, their venom isn't that powerful so these two observations would actually make them one of the least lethal types of spiders.
Most spiders only attack larger creatures like us when they feel threatened, and tarantulas are pretty docile, allowing you to handle them with minimal risk. Most people just allow themselves to get freaked out because a) it's socially acceptable with most people to hate on spiders which b) stems from ignorance and c) who's behavior is reinforced because the general consensus is that spiders are "icky." Maybe op does have a phobia (though being able to handle the corpse is suspicious), but most of the people here claiming they'd do the same don't fit into the same category, and are being ignoramuses.
That's probably something your roommate should have disclosed before moving in. "By the way I've got a ginormous spider as a pet and he's a bit of a Houdini."
Yes, I am Christian. No, I am not forcing my religion on anyone. I just think it's tacky and extremely disrespectful to use those words. You don't see anyone else disrespecting other peoples religions. And YDI, OP, for trying to impress a guy with a 2nd-grade date-tactic. Killing spiders, let alone, someones pet, is not impressive or cute or admirable in any way, shape, or form.
Shut the hell up and go away. You take everything so Goddamned seriously, it's fucking painful to have to read. All you do is act indignant about humorous things that you clearly do not understand. BTW- What second grader do you know that goes on dates? Secondly, since when is showing a dead animal to someone a dating tactic? Just leave all public forums until you grow a suffficient amount of grey matter, you silly thing.
people like you are one of the main reasons i dispise religion. damn, fuck, shit, sumnbitch, ass, hell, goddamn motherfucker etc. etc. are simply words. but theres people like you that have to ruin anything. but since ive broadend my mind and chose my religious standing; atheism it seems that no matter what were going to your hell anyway....so might as well enjoy life as it is and suck it up or gtfo the internet and any open chat areas since thats what a majority of the world does.
Excuse me?! A sufficient amount of grey matter?! Bitch, PLEASE! Come back with that nonsense when you get some 'grey matter' of your own! That's what makes this site so amazing! I don't have to go away! It is, in fact, a public commenting site! And I am free to express my opinion! And you are crazy if you think I'm going to take the advice to 'Shut the hell up and go away' from your rude, punk-ass! I expressed my opinion. And, once again, I was not forcing my religion on anyone! But I AM going to express my opinion. And I will do it where and whenever I feel like! Now cut your shit out and learn some damn manners!
Desireev, I'm totally on your side. I say gosh dangit all the time because it's funnier too. I don't force my religion on anyone but I will share my opinion as well. If atheists, Muslims, Buddhists, Jews, whatever respect me and my religion, I'll do the same to them. If they don't then they don't deserve respect for theirs (or lackthereof) and shouldn't get pissed when we Christians treat them the same way.
I love religious people! So cursing and not living thy neighbor aren't important to you in your religious views? Just that people say God or God dammit? Calm down, time stated your opinion once, like you wanted, that's all that matters. Now respect their ways of sharing opinions too.
You scooped up its's remains to impress him? How the fuck does that work? "Look! I've killed a creature because I'm too much of a pussy to set it outside! Impressed yet?!"
