OMG Sheila, just seen the photo on Twitter of you holding a tarantula. Was that some sort of therapy thingy? Our friend Tim is a etymologist and goes off to the jungles of Borneo to collect specimens. He was on TV doing a programme called Spider House, in which he filled a whole house with spiders, and the presenter had to spend the night there, in the name of science.

Spiders are awesome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/14/17 3:22pm Cliff (temporarily not) in Prague:

From Ken's link - "While Cacachilensis is pretty good sized, it’s nowhere near the world's largest by leg span, Heteropoda maxima, the giant huntsman spider which lives in Laos. Its legs can grow as large as 1 foot and it also stands accused of spinning webs out of nightmares and feasting on children’s dreams."

@Cliff not in Prague! That giant Huntsman sounds quite terrifying. I met a Huntsman in Australia, but she was small. And fast! I slept the entire night with her near me on the wall. That took a bit of bravery.

Everyone hear about the United passenger bitten by a scorpion in the overhead compartment? A huge spider on the flight could have helped.

A few snakes on that plane might have helped as well.
Avatar Fri. 4/14/17 3:30pm NotARealDoctor:

Don't scorpions eat spiders? I think it probably went something like this: Too many bugs on the United plane so they got some spiders, then everyone complained about the spiders so they got scorpions, if the passengers would've left the scorpions alone they were going to send in snakes to clean them up for the next flight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/14/17 3:31pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks for the pic, Adrian. I like tossing flies into webs and watch the spider come running out for the feast. Also, tossing grasshoppers into water and waiting for fish to nab them.

Instead they kicked off a Vietnamese doctor who said the experience was worse than the fall of Saigon.

@JakeGould: That right there is the fatal flow in how United handled this: they should have started playing a Seven Second Delay episode in the plane, and announced that was the only thing available for the duration of the flight

When my wife was pregnant 4 years ago, there was a BIG spider that built a web in our window. It freaked her out, so she had me knock it down...we were on the third floor. Afterwards, we really regretted it and said prayers of sorrow and asked the spider for forgiveness. Spiders still give us the heebie jeebies, but we try to be more hospitable to their right to a home.

Maybe it's just that I grew up in a house in the woods full of bugs, but me and spiders have always gotten along just fine. I have a few friends who can't stand spiders, which makes them very easy to torment ;)

@Cool John: my surrealistic experience, together with 15 other "students": a songwriter course of one week in 2001 by "teacher" Sir Ray Davies (of The Kinks). I'm quite proud of one song I wrote: Miss the kids. Search on this title and my name on YouTube, and you will both find a demo and the story behind it.

I think it was one of those things where, by that point, I had stopped listening to the radio, so I would only hear bits of it in passing in shops and such. It had a good hook and, thus, was already miles ahead of Mariah.
