I hate spiders just as much as anyone but for some strange reason I love tarantulas. I'll run around the house screaming like a scared little girl if I see a small spider on the wall, but I never pass up a chance to hold a big hairy tarantula.
This thread reminds me of BlaRo freaking out about spiders in his bike restoration thread. :lol: My worst spider experience was having one crawl across my face as soon as I was in bed. Needless to say I didn't get any sleep that night.
This thread is seriously lacking one of the greatest internet/fark icons ever... and the one thing that was most responsible for freaking me the hell out when I first got acquainted with the interwebs....
Im generaly fine with most spiders and bugs....but huntsmans...no fucking way. Those little buggers scare the living shit out of me. I don't know how many times ive pulled an external spare tyre of a car to find one of those hiding in it *shudders*.
House centipedes! They're almost completely harmless, but they can move very quickly and look kind of creepy. They actually eat spiders, so if you've got a lot of centipedes then you probably won't see too many spiders. They like warm/moist places, like dorm bathrooms.
