    i remember getting bit by spiders when i was a kid - we heated the house with a wood burning stove in the winter and always had a wood pile inside - lots of creepy crawlies in there. i would get huge welts the size of a CD whenever i would get bitten, hurt like hell too. that would explain why i keep 2 or 3 cans of super strength spider killer spray around now. my biggest complaint now is that i have black widows in my garage - the experts claim that its too cold here for them. i have the corpses to prove them wrong.

    i remember one encounter from when i was about 7 or 8 my folks and i were out camping and had gone for a short drive in the old subaru wagon. we stopped for some reason and as i opened the door to get out this massive spider dropped down from the roof rack and was just dangling in the doorway. i screamed and was scrambling to get away - crawling backwards across the seat. my dad tells me to stop screaming and quit being such a baby. then he came around the side of the car and he started screaming too. the body of the damn thing was the size of a golf ball! thinking back now i wonder if it was just a smaller not-so-scary spider with an egg sac? i know some varieties carry the eggs around for awhile.

    Oh man I can't stop laughing, the visuals of the spider falling out of your hair and..... anyway funny stuff. I hate spiders and any type of insect too I spray my yard and house at least three times or more a year. The only insects I usually see are ants.

    i f-ing hate spiders but i never thought of sticking them in the microwave that is great. normally i just crushed them or spray them with what ever i have in hand. WD40 and a match is always fun and makes u feel better.

    Nasty fucks, all of them! I moved to VA last year, some big monster I found in the yard. I dropped a cinderblock on it so I wouldn't have to squish it.

    Used to live in SoCal. My dad once went outside at night to get the mail and stepped on a tarantula BAREFOOT!!!:eek:

    A few days later I saw it's ugly brother, and used my BB gun to put an end to it too.

    Good thing my GF takes care of the spiders usually, cuz I can't be calling my dad every time:D

    why'd you leave the truck door open? one of those nasty things could have crawled in and drove away when you weren't looking.

    When I was deployed to the desert in 2003, I was moving a table back into the vestibule of our tent. There was a single naked light bulb swinging with a light desert breeze. Out of the corner of my eye I catch a shadow that was moving (thanks to the swinging light) so I look down and there is a HUGE Camel Spider!!! I nearly pumped a grumpy, screamed like a little girl, and bolted....I am not sure if I ever touched the ground. I did not sleep well that night...

    The thing was HUGE!! I was waiting for Godzilla to appear and the two start fighting and knocking over trains and buildings and shit...power lines throwing off sparks while they wrestle!
