    I Love, I Love, I Love Spiders

    Look at their webs, and how they create everything - they are so very complex and unusual. Do you think it is so easy to coordinate 8 legs also? Without errors? Spiders are very small, but maybe smarter than most of the people who can never multitask or similar. They are very...

    I Hate Them Too!

    A lot of people think it's funny that they freak me out so much, but they're about the only thing in life that really terrifies me.  My partner loves to stir me about them, too. My daughter was absolutely beautiful the other day and overcame her fear of them to kill a...

    Glad I Don't Remember

    For some it's snakes, for others it's siders. But I never really understood why it had to have eight legs and fur for me to be petrified with fear until my mother related this story to me. I was 2 years old and my mother used to buy a box of bananas from the grocery store in...

    Ugghhh

    I have never liked spiders.  I am not sure why, but I've had this fear for the longest time.  Even looking at the word, or pictures, it makes me cringe.  I have gotten a little bit better, to where I don't cry like a little girl when I see one.  I still try to...

    Car Spider

    There was one that made a web on my drivers side mirror on my car this morning.  I didn't have anything to knock it down with so I just took off and got on the freeway.  The little bastard hid between the mirror and the casing and never fell off.  Amazing how well...

    Baby Wolf Spiders

    Okay I hate the eight legged creeps. One time this big baby wolf spider got into my house. I was home alone. I saw it run in, then it disappeared. I ran to the kitchen, grabbed the biggest steak knife I could find, and retreated to my bedroom. I was freaking out.

    Australia has an abundance of toxic, venomous and downright dangerous fauna. A recent survey of tourists found the the most feared creature is the Huntsman spider. The Huntsman is quite a large spider, with a body up to 30mm and a span the size of a mans hand. They are long...

    Give Me a Snake Anyday

    But if I walk through a spiderweb get out-a my way. lol   I'm gettin it off. I hate spiders.  I can kill em if I see em. So it isn't a freaky scared of em. I guess it's the fear of the bite that gets me. more than the spider it's self.

    Okay, you can call me crazy here and that's fine but spiders like me. I am fearful of them and I don't even have to see them but they will come up, no doubt hoping for a bite. Now I know this is probably funny but I have been cornered by a spider a few yrs back. It was crazy, I...

    Spiders! Yikes!

    OK I can't help it.  Spiders are gross-looking with strange round centers and furry six legs.  And any of them could bite, you just never know what ones will!  I am not prejudice either... I hate all spiders equally and their webs!  I don't go out of my way to...

    I Hate Spiders!

     I don't know why exactly, but spiders completely freak me out. Nothing else really bothers me. I don't mind snakes or anything else, just ******* spiders. I have my wife kill them, because they make me nauseous.
