Torture, duh. I waterboard it until it tells me what I want to hear.

spiders aren't insects by the way, people!

OT: it depends on the spider, some i tolerate in the house, the rest i carry outside.



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

- George Orwell, ‘1984’

There are a lot of spiders here in Africa. Seriously - even in the cities.

The hunting spiders should never be killed. If one of them is killed then more will come to claim the territory. They should just be escorted out of the house.

We have some black widows here. They should be killed.

As for the other small ones - hmmm, I try not to kill them.

In whatever place of residence i'm at (house or college dorm) i tend to kill on sight, mostly because you never know where they'll go or what they'll get into, and their death brings peace of mind.

If they've made a nest outside my home or whatever, i would let them be, which is also what my parents do.

The only insects i don't smash are stinkbugs, and that's only because of the horrible smell they make. Those i either release or flush down the toilet



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

I kill white-tail spiders (the only common poisonous spider here) and leave the others alone because they help out with getting rid of flies. Our only other poisonous spider is the Katipo which is dangerous but extremely rare.

It's nice to live in a country where most of the wildlife can't kill you.

Tell me about it, I feel bad for those poor bastards in Australia or Africa having to be on the look out for all those deadly creatures.



I LOVE paying for Xbox Live! I also love that my love for it pisses off so many people.

on a scale of 1-10, how offended would you be if I said "It's just a baby, I mean, not like it's done anything in it's short life to be of any value to me"? 


XD, spiders are not even in the same legue as babies, please tell me you are not this nieve! If your really believe this garbage, then tell me, do you believe in evolution?  

first of all, it's naive, not like it matters. (the i is supposed to have two dots above it to indicate that it could be spelled 'naiive'.)  

Also, what does believing in evolution have to do with it?  Just because we can create computers and airplanes doesn't mean we're better or more valuable in the grand scheme things, just our own schemes.  The only species in the world that thinks we're all that and a bag of potato chips is us, everything else would be better off without us.  I do not believe in any way that just because our brains are more advanced than that of a spider that we're superior or that our lives are more valuable.  

First off, ever heard of a typo, let me give you a clue. A "typo" is a phenomenon that tends to happen when one is typing qiuckly, and does not bother to proof-read. Be careful though, typos are everywhere, and they are clearly dangerous. ; )  

Secondly, we are better and more valued in the grand sceme of things, and it is precicely because we have "evolved" (if you believe such nonsense). Also, we are much higher up on the food chain than spiders. No matter how you try to spin it spiders are insignificant in comparison to us. But you never answered my question. Do you believe in the theory of evolution?

Cease this talk of evolution, or I will report you for derailment. I you want to talk about evolution, do it on each others' wall.
