I find it somewhat depressing how when one person starts a joke in an FML comment thread, that person's joke gets buried and all the following jokes based off of it are lifted to heaven. Reminds me of middle school.

@135 it's very much like middle school I'd know I just finished it.. it's like when you tell a. joke and everyone says it's bad then a "popular" person says it everyone dies from laughter and you stand there with the what the fuck face

Mine was just as bad, and my comment didn't get buried. I think it may have been that people who don't watch Doctor Who, didn't realise he was talking about the Daleks. That & the first exterminate

there's a reason behind the fear usually. I know there is for me. so even if the spider is small, it makes no difference whatsoever. so if you don't have the fear you really wouldn't understand...

Did you ever hear of such a thing as a poisonous spider? Um, I'm pretty sure that is most of the reason most of us are terrified of spiders. If they were harmless, there would not be a fear of them. Sorry but if something as small as a dime can bite me and rot away a baseball sized area of my flesh...I'm scared of that mother fucker.

I am with you 55. Spiders are one of the most interesting groups of living things on our planet. They have adapted to conquer just about every little specialized niche of our world and some of the things they have come up with are mind blowingly complex for such little creatures. There are spiders that live underwater by making a diving bell full of air to sustain their need for oxygen. There are spiders that use a ball of sticky silk and THROW it at passing moths to catch them and reel them in. Some spiders have learned to colonize and work together to capture larger amounts of prey. There are spiders that make underground burrows and decorate the hole covers with surrounding ground to hide it, and they even form trip wires outside the burrow. Jumping spiders hunt without the aid of a web, stalking their tiny prey like a wolf, and have better vision than some vertebrates do! Ant-mimicking spiders have a body that looks deceptively similar to an ant, and they even walk in the same erratic pattern as ants do, and disguise their fourth pair of legs as antennae. (The first time I found one of these I could not believe I had found such a spider as I had never heard of them before). A newly discovered species of spider builds a pole out of silk to place it's eggs on top of and then builds a circular silk fence around the pole to keep them safe. The spider that op went after did not have an egg sac as they thought. She was carrying her babies on her back, which some spiders will do to keep them safe until they're ready to be on their own. Spiders are scary to those who do not understand them... But just remember if it were not for the up to 1 million spiders per cubic acre of our planet, we would be in serious trouble with Mosquitos.... Which are your real enemy. If you want to be afraid of something tiny, be afraid of mosquitoes. There is a reason they are known as the deadliest living creature known to humans. And remember every one of those thousands of spiders that are close by you and I right now can take out several of them a day. Without spiders and bees, we would never have survived to the point we are today. You can be afraid all you like.... But show spiders the respect they deserve and take some time to educate yourself about them!

#114, you're exactly right. Brown recluse spiders are common where I live, and I never have been able to tell them apart from harmless "house spiders." My grandfather was bitten by one when I was little and it terrified me. Now I just spare myself the trouble of figuring them out and kill any brown spider.

I wont stop using a word just to make a single person feel better. What I will though never say again is "That's a shitty situation". That one phrase has the power to burn down continents on this website.

If you absolutely want it gone, Just trap the spider under a glass, slide a piece of paper under it & release it outside. No need to kill it. They are very helpful creatures.

What? Burn down the house? SURELY you're kidding. Anyone in this situation knows that the only option here is to nuke the neighborhood, change their name to something obviously fake such as; Jack Mehoff, Igotta LottaSwagger, or Edward Cullen. They must then hope that Thor opens a portal to Asgard and allows him to become an Asgardian. That's by far your best bet, Op. Wikipedia said so and wikipedia never lies.

Or fire. Really I must be messed up in my mind because I don't find spiders any creepier than a McDonald's Happy Meal. Squash these little turds with your heel or spray that trusty Raid and watch them drop by the dozens. Why run? Unless they're lethally poisonous, fight them back, they won't eat you like a python!

depends on the species, I simply make them crawl onto something and then shake them off outside. if they are super small, I have this bugg-remover tool. you safely catch them and can safely release them outside.

Show passive support; yes. The spiders will become your allies and help you out in a number of ways like, putting spider webs around your house to protect you from other bugs and bees as well as-- What are you doing with that newspaper?
