I don't mind bugs to be honest. As long as it isn't going to kill me, I can live with it being there.

I don't mind bugs or spiders except the White Tail spider, they seem to love my bedroom and they creep me out.

I watched "Arachniphobia" when I was around 10 . . . messed me up. I'm better now, but that picture is horrible.

I dislike the invasion of my privacy the most, and of course if it's poisonous it makes it worse. I'd like to think the evolutionary adaptations with respect to the fear of poisonous/dangerous creatures gave me a head start with my discomfort surrounding spiders and other bugs.

Or you could just call me a wimp, that's fine.

Up until I was about 12 years old, I was just terribly scared of snakes. If I saw a picture of one in a book, I would quickly turn the page. I could not stand to look at them. When I joined Boy Scouts things changed. A man from the zoo came out and brought all kinds of poisonous snakes. He walked up to each of us with a rattlesnake in his hand about four feet from our face and put a pencil under his fangs so the venon would drip out. From that point on, it cured my fear of snakes.

Crikey! That would make me more afraid BigMck

We occasionally get some Eastern Brown snakes around the hose.....touch wood none have tried to get in, and the kids know what to do when they encounter one.

So, what these images show are massive amounts of dragline silk released by the normally solitary spiders (wolf spiders) as they ran for their lives to escape rising floodwaters.


How can you look at this and not feel anything negative whatsoever? Heh. I'm a soft, wimpy, wuss wuss, whatever.
