Today, I was lying on a couch, reading, when I noticed a spindly leg poking round the corner of my book. Upon realising it was a spider, I calmly and rationally threw my book across the room, breaking the TV. FML

Honestly, this seems like a probable YDI. Why not just drop your book, next to you, crushing the spider? Oh well, hope you can afford a new TV! (Or survive without one.)

I actually understand OP. A lot of people are terrified by spiders (including me) and if I saw something I was terrified of next to me, I would act in the moment and throw the book. A good, but probably extreme, way to think about this is if someone was held at gun point. He/she probably won't focus on stuff like what type of gun the shooter is holding because he/she is most likely more concerned with getting killed.

Maybe next time, calmly and rationally aim for something other than the telly?
