I hate spiders. I kill them on sight. Before any bug-kissing PETA nazis show up, I KNOW they are benficial and eat other pests and deserve to live
because they are just so important to our ecosystem. Blech. I kill 'em. They bite, they have EIGHT legs and an EYE for each one. That's just wrong.
They are ALL poisonous and they are just plain icky.
I've been bit several times and it's usually while sleeping. I heard the average person swallows about 8 spiders a year while they are sleeping. And
yeah, that's just wrong.
Arachnids in general are some of the most gruesome little boogers going. Spiders are also some cold-blooded little bastards. That whole sucking the
juices out of something while it's still alive is just bad news.
If I had to try and understand the phobia, I would be looking at feelings of powerlessness. Logic tell us that the spider cannot eat us, but we KNOW
what happens when something gets caught in the web. They have more arms than us, so they have an advantage in martial arts. They can crawl on the
ceiling (scorpions too) and drop down on us anytime they like. Some are indeed deadly.
Here in KS we have brown recluse and black widows. The bites of either can have very serious effects on some. I don't take any chances. If a spider
comes across my path, it is ME that is going home tonight.
I set sticky traps by all the doors. It gives me GREAT pleasure to pick up a trap and see six or seven of them bastards on there.
Nope! I'm not scared. (lie)
