When little spiders fall on me, I might get shocked at first, but my mom use to tell me when a spider lands on you it's good luck or you'll get a
What I can't get over are the big wood and potato spiders. Potato spiders or at least what the Dorm Police claimed to be a potato spider was this big
orange thing crawling on top of a stuffed animal I had back in college. I remember screaming and saying something along the lines of colorful spiders
belong on National Geographics and not in my dorm room. A dorm cop killed it for me.
Years later in grad school, as Spider Karma I guess, a wood spider came into my room and gave me a near heart attack. This time it was brown in
appearance and way too big, we're talking hand big. I called my sister, because well that's what rational people do when they see big spiders and
the two of us tried to kill it together. A huge can of Raid wouldn't kill it. Clorox bleach spray wouldn't kill it. Finally, I threw my dictionary
on it. We picked up the dictionary and the thing still had the will to live. I screamed, my sister threw the dictionary on top of the spider again and
began jumping on the dictionary. After doing that for several minutes, the thing finally died.
What I haven't been able to figure out, to add to your discussion, is if camel spiders are real or just a hoax. Look at this picture below.
I would think those spiders are larger than the one you mentioned.
And unfortunately, I don't think my dictionary could kill that thing.
