Hi All-

Peter Brady really freaked-out when that tarantula walked on his chest a few decades ago..."Get it off of me!"

Hi All-

I'd address that Iraqi desert spider by driving over it with a Hummvee.

Camel Spider

Yeah they are beasts! I saw a few while I was stationed in Northern Afghanistan. The Army uses them as target practice when they get bored. The bad part is that the venom is some kind of neuro toxin that deadn's the pain so you dont even know the damn thing is sucking the life out of you!!!

The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
