Ha! I didn't even think about that when I posted the link. Looked right past the pictures and stuff, no biggie, didn't even occur to me that it would freak people out.

By the way, I think the word you're looking for is "arachnophobes" :)

Unlikely. We Australians, having grown up around them, are immune to spider venom. Koala venom too!

Oh, we have a pretty good idea of what you get down there. In the US, we have no fewer than two channels that use "holy crap Australia has a lot of things that can murder people" as the sentiment that drives their programming.

One of these days the Australian Tourism Board is going to get an idea of how their country is portrayed elsewhere. That will be an unpleasant day for them. "You mean the two things most people know about Australia is that it was founded as a penal colony and it's full of ridiculously deadly animals?"
Can't be much worse than their "Where the bloody hell are you?" ad campaign.

You should swallow a spider to catch the Daddy Long-legs. Although then you'll have to swallow a bird to catch the spider.
But that should be the end of the problem.

Rors, you can always disable image loading in your browser when you know you're going to a spider site...

About as much as I could lay an egg.

I don't understand any part of that.

In better news, I've seen one spider in my house since I got and started using my repeller thing, and it was a shitty little one. Man 1 Nature 0. Next: barrs.

Maybe they immigrated to my house... I've killed two rabid wolf spiders (yes, that's the damn name) this week. Both were about the size of my palm. They're supposedly not that dangerous to humans but that means nothing to me when something looks like they can carry your pets off into the night.

A few days late, but I got that joke, Aza.

What? I've been busy killing spiders.

For those reading about my tiny British spiders, smirking as you effortlessly dispatch Shelob's bigger brothers with one hand, and rolling your eyes at my shrieking pussyness, I've bought a spider catcher, which is like a little box on the end of a stick in which I can trap spiders and release them out of a window at a mere arm's length.

Any day now I hope to grow a penis and become a real boy.
