When I was married we had a female tarantula. She was pretty cool, though I declined to let her walk on my hand. She would remain motionless for hours even with legs in mid air in an attack position. We couldn't afford to buy her insects, so we captured cockroaches and crickets from around the house.

With her row of 8 eyes, she was completely alien.

We all float down here.

Actually this "it" is pretty relevant in this thread & the title.

Snakes and spiders and wasps, Oh my !! -- and I'm around them pretty often working on houses that have sat empty for years.

Here's one of our 3:



Bugs, on the other hand, bother me. But not bees.

You're not the only one. An NFL quarterback got the snap recently and threw the ball straight up in the air, 50 feet or so. The opposing team caught it.

When the coach went out on the field to ask the quarterback what happened, he explained: "Coach, there was a spider on the ball."

When very small, camping, I'd sleep outside with my dad and look at the stars. At some point the immensity got to me and I didn't want to sleep outdoors any more.

When I was 11, there was a TV special about aliens and abductions. It was hosted by the guy who played BJ on M*A*S*H and I didn't know then he was a kook, he was the nice guy on that M*A*S*H and I trusted him. It was all about how the aliens would freeze you conscious and levitate you out the closed window while you screamed into your mind and take you up into their ship and experiment on you and implant you and abandon you gibbering in a field. There was supposed to be some big reveal at the end about how the government could no longer cover it up. I knew for a year after that, that around every corner in the dark midnight house there was an alien waiting to freeze me and levitate me away.
