    Trod on a large spider when I got in the shower the other day. Revolting. I dropped the corpse out of the window. It was big enough that I could see the darkness of the corpse on the outside widow sill even through the frosted glass. It was still there several days later. A few days after that, it had gone.

    What took it? Perhaps it was the EDF?

    Wow - what a mansion!

    Just thought I'd check what the deadliest spider near where I am currently is

    I get back from work this evening, and tell my wife about the spider. "Well, let's look it up", she says. Shit! The North Black Widow is common in southern British Columbia! Shit! Shit! Shit!

    Fucking spider ran across the living room the other night and heading in the direction of my bedroom. I was unarmed at the time and by the time I got tooled up it was gone. Uncomfortable and sleepless night that night, I can tell ya.

    Spiders are heading indoors for the autumn/winter already.

    Two nights ago I wanted to head to bed and a huge one was sitting on the living room wall.
    I think it's one of them wolf spiders.
    I've been having some trouble with pesky little flies that turn out to be really small moths actually. They keep cropping up from somewhere, I kill them, a few days later there's a new batch of them. So I figured the spider can stay, hopefully sort the little fuckers out.

    I said "you better be out of sight tomorrow" and went to bed.
    Yesterday I came home from work, went to wash my hands at the kitchen sink and there it was. Stuck in the sink. :-)
    Helped him out with a fly swatter and he dropped off the ledge and absailed to the ground. Then scuttled off.
    Spotted him climbing the kitchen wall later that night.

    I think I'll name him Peter.

    I remember doing a paper route as a kid and walking into a web. The funny thing was the only way it could have happened is if the web was across the WHOLE STREET. Mentalist spider was probably trying to catch a person, or even more ambitiously - a car.

    Don't kill them, I've always thought it wrong to kill a spider personally. They get rid of all the crap thats in the insect world.

    Yeah, there's one in the carport where I am at the moment and it's a clever bugger, I'll give it that. It has located its web right next to a outside light to catch the flies et al. that congregate toward to such luminary devices at night.

    EDIT: ...and hopefully they get a few mosquitos. It's like the local mosquitos can smell me coming a mile off. "Fresh blood!" they rasp as they home in on my arms and legs.

    On a freaky unrelated to spider but more related to mosquito note:

    I am actually Type-O.

    That's fine if they're nice and small and discreet but when they're feck off massive ones which just scurry around the living room with no obvious purpose, then it's hoover time!

    We've got big fucking spiders crawling all over our house :D my youngest lad has just had three running all over his body, he's only wearing his underpants, he's stood there giggling saying they're tickling him, my eldest lad is scared of them but I'm trying to slowly introduce them to him because I don't want him to be scared like I was for many years.

    Beautiful creatures.

    Phobia lol. It's entirely rational to fear SATAN SPAWN MANIFEST WITH DEVIL EYES AND DEVIL LEGS HIDING UNDER YOUR BED LIKE AN ARMOURED HAIRY CUNT.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    *shudders*

    Since moving to Canada I haven't actually seen a spider bigger than a pound coin. Must be the harsh winters. Love it here!

    I don't understand spider sympathizers. If those evil little bastards could, they'd kill us all.

    You know it's massive when you hear a thud as it falls onto the floor while your watching TV. I turned my head immediately and woah Huge bastard. So much for being sneaky, I heard you moving!

    There is a middle ground between this and killing them, you know.

    S'ok, they are starting to pick up really bad habits now , they might wipe themselves out...

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Ugly fucking thing. Our garden is full of those enormous common garden spiders, hideous fuckers.

    In other spider news, my mate ate deep fried tarantula. Said it tastes quite nice with a black pepper sauce

    For those who hate spiders NEVER come here to Australia.

    There is a spider here called The Huntsman, a hairy fucking thing that JUMPS at you. Yes that's right, it JUMPS at you.

    Went to the bog here at work last week and saw one sitting on the toilet seat, waiting. Needless to say I didn't go near that toilet for days.

    I like it when he's angry.
