YDI for A) Not just catching the spider and putting it outside, and B) After killing it, leaving its corpse just stuck to the end of a pencil.
I also catch and put outside. If I was the spider, I wouldn't want some giant behemoth arbitrarily killing me when all I do is catch and dispose of bugs for them. That's just me, though. I'm one of those weirdos who doesn't like to kill things smaller than me just because I can.
There is a reason why people kill them. The fear and killing of spiders is a natural instinct to humans. Why? Even if the spider isn't dangerous from a bite, you don't know unless you know your spiders. People die all the time from getting bitten by spiders. So, excuse us for being smart and killing the killer before it kills us.
"The fear and killing of spiders is a natural instinct to humans." Aaaactually, no. Research on the topic has shown fear of spiders, as well as a lot of "creepy crawlies" in general, is a learned, cultural behavior that's comorbid with equally irrational fears of harmless critters. You were raised in a culture where it's normal and just generalized it to the rest of the planet. For starters, look up G.C. Davey's "The 'Disgusting' Spider: The Role of Disease and Illness in the Perpetuation of Fear of Spiders," published in Society & Animals, or his article "Why Are We Afraid of Spiders?" published by Psychology Today. Of course, since you've already given an implied sentiment that you literally believe any given spider is a "killer", you may well be out of the reach of factual information at this point.
At least you're brave enough to keep using the pencil after having killed a spider with it. If it were me, that pencil would be long gone. And that's just assuming I could muster the courage to kill the spider at all in the first place. So props to you on that, OP.
Does it count as one of the 20 something spiders we are supposed to eat in a lifetime?
8 times the legs, 8 times the flavor! (Sorry OP, hope it wasn't too bad.)
Actually "8 times" refers to multiplication so lets say the normal amount of legs on most animals, it would be "2 times the legs" and if your refering to "normal" legs on humans then it would be "4 times the legs" unless you live in an alternate dimension with dominantly 1 legged creatures and for some reason have internet that can hop through the multiverse. In that case, im wrong.
