Now, that's some high level white privilege.

I'll gladly give that privilege to others.  :lol:

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year oldís life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.

I think I'll stay safely far away from that thing.  :lol:

One oddity - why does this woman keep the bug under a glass in her house? I mean, she's been in touch with the university - why not have them take it.

They aren't.  Since contacting the university, they followed the university's guidance and froze it to death so as to preserve the specimen until they can deliver it.

The Giant House Spiders which are fucking freakishly huge have their mating season between August and October and the males are roaming around looking for females. They are fucking quick and disgustingly brown and can be ljke up to 14 cms big which is about 28 times more than I can handle Ūja spider without the urge to kill it.

I have already seen and killed 4 of these fuckers over my 7 years in this country. I know that it is only a matter of time beofe my mex encounter with them, but that's something I will just have to learn to live with.

Usually you want to let spiders be because they eat insects :hmm:

But I guess if they are giant sex spiders things might change :P

Eventually you'll have a spider that will buy you dinner first.  :)

 :lol:

I live by simple rules. If a spider enters my lair, it is dead.

At our current flat, they also die if they set up shop at our windows. There are a LOT of effin' bloody spiders around here. There are plenty left even with me culling their numbers.

I've actually managed to live in my place for nearly two years, and had never seen one of the legit GHSs.  Just lots of the daddy-long legs-looking frail spiders.

But saw the first one today after coming back from a run.  It was in the bedroom, so it broke "the deal"* and had to die.





*out in the kitchen/living room, I might have mercy and capture/release...but the bedrooms are their forbidden zone.

Told ya it was time for these fuckers to run amok. They should be back to hiding in about a month or so. Disgusting SOBs.
