You can dump me in a vat full of snakes but not spiders, please. They normally wind up as a smear on my cricket bat.

I don't know. Tarantulas, in spite of their size, don't seem as creepy to me as smaller spiders. It's the proportions and, of course, the fuzziness. A taratula is like a hamster with more legs and more eyes. Oh, and a poisonous bite. OK, not like a hamster at all, but still cuter than most other spiders.

Mind you, they don't get much cuter than a jumping spider.

Adorable.

Tarantula don't bother me but this one does.....the brown recluse.



My sister got a bite on her arm and it caused such a deep hole there...her skin rotting away and she said the nerve pain was terrible.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
