I'm not sure why I looked either--now I have the heebie geebies!!! (I do not have a clue how to spell that one!!!)

were you a fan of the Who back in the day???;)

07-11-2003, 03:09 PM
Eww :p lol Ugly spiders.

07-11-2003, 03:13 PM
LOL!! I'll take a spider any single day over a cockroach or other bug. :) But my Helen is petrified of them and I have no idea why!!!


07-11-2003, 03:13 PM
YUKKY!!!! mahh I hate spiders, kill them all, eww!!!! RUNNNN................. :eek:

07-11-2003, 04:33 PM
LOL, most of you seem scared of the little & harmless (mostly) creatures!....Okay, I shouldn`t laugh because I was also afraid of them once upon a time. Nowadays, other than I don`t like the idea of them crawling on me, I quite like them. :D
And I would never `squish` one, I don`t like the idea of killing anything that is running away. Truth is I hate killing anything, even the wasps and flies that I hate!

Just for those who do like them (very few of you!) here are two more Spider pictures , from last year I may add, they will be long gone now. But I do see their offsprings from time to time.:D :D

07-11-2003, 04:52 PM
I only hate the REALLY big ones! Like the Hairy Tarantulas(sp?) Ewwww! But boris is kinda cute! I know they`re harmless!

07-11-2003, 06:01 PM
ChrisH.- I have ALOT respect for you for not squishing that lil bugger!! EWWW :eek:

PBC- Why did you have to bring that one up AGIAN!!! Im still creeped out from the first time...:eek:

07-11-2003, 10:52 PM
Now that I think of it, I can't find my 8 legged room mates. There was about 30 maybe even 50 little black spiders on my window last summer. I swore they had red under their butts. I never found the adult ones . But last summer I had hundreds of earwegs in here, I hate them soooo much. They always fall from the celing & land on my face at night & scare the crap out of me. But on the + side, the fish had a great meal.

07-11-2003, 11:24 PM
OMG, earwigs falling on your face at night? I'd flip out! I don't like bugs! I squish them or cage them for my son's collection. (Which he can't seem to keep them alive for long anyways.)

My sentiments exactly! I KNEW it was a spider and still I looked!!! What is wrong with me??? :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

07-11-2003, 11:33 PM
Tonya, I have squished earwegs all over my walls, pond, behind the door & god knows where else. I hate them so much, I refuse to touch their dead bodies. But I learned thats its alot of fun to spray them with lysol (sp), & the more I spray it on my floor the less they go in my room. but their always waiting for me all over the walls for the only stairs to go upstairs (out of the basement)

ChrisH, I'm proud to admit, I don't have the least bit mercy or respect for spiders. :p Any spider enters my house at the risk of being SQUASHED. Spiders that enter our territory get the death penalty for squeaky spider traspassing. :p:p:p lol

BTW, not all spiders are harmless. Just a few days ago, my dad's friend got bit by one. He was sitting at home, got bit by a spider and started feeling very ill. Then he started to get weak and all of a sudden couldnt walk. He was rushed to the hospital, and the doctors said if he didn't come, he could've died. Don't know what its called, but its something that certain spiders can give to humans with their bite. He's on strong medicines now, and stayed at the hospital for a week, but thank God he's alright now and back home, but still taking medications. EVIL SPIDERS! :eek: Tiny they might be, but they are more evil than a monster!

Hehehehehehe. :p:p:p That's exactly what I wanted to do! :p As for me, it freaks me out so I don't click it. I post it to freak everyone else out. :p:D

I'm sorry but if I see a spider it usely gets squished. I know that some spiders are harmless but there are some are not. But I'm not going to take a chance not knowing if they are or not. Specially if I don't know anything about them.

07-12-2003, 10:53 AM
Yikes!! Boris gave me the chills. I think if I found that little critter in my bedroom I'd be sleeping in the living room :eek: It's nice to know that there are some spider lovers out there. I'm terrified of them :rolleyes:
