go to google.com, click on "Images" type in "spiders" hit enter. Spiders scare me sh!tless, I don't even want to look up a picture of one to post it here.

First off, I always have nightmare about <a href="http://www.rankinmuseum.com/%20images/bear.jpg" target="_blank">these</a>.<br><br><br><br>
I knew a woman who was terrified of <a href="http://www.nps.gov/acad/kids/%20images/beaver.jpg" target="_blank">beavers</a>. She went to another school once, and in their lunch room they had a giant beaver statue, and she had to eat outside.

Soilman, I don't know what the image you posted is called but, my God, it's beautiful. Does it really gross you out?<br><br>
I had a biege spider crawling on my wrist the other day and damn near freaked out.<br><br>
I have a reoccuring dream about being in a pit of snakes that leaves me in a cold sweat. Once, an old boyfriend told me that it's a good omen and I should allow them to bite me. It would signify allowing positive change in my life. So sometimes I allow them to sink their fangs into my flesh. It stings and burns, and some of the anxiety is released but, I have yet to see a significant change in my waking life.

If you like that image -- they have a new image for you every week -- of a different opisthobranch (pronounced brank). And the images of past weeks are archived for your sea-slug viewing pleasure. Many of them are extraordinarily colorful -- and all of them leave a slime trail.

Awwww kreeli, you don't like naked mole rats? I think they have a certain charm. I'd give them kisses. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br><br><br>
Now the spiders and earwigs.....blech!

I'm not a fan of spiders but I'm no longer terrified of them. I lived in the Adirondacks this summer and fall, and there were these enormous, juicy spiders in the bathroom. One day when I was cleaning the bathroom, I had a "bad vegan" moment and killed a bunch of spiders instead of taking them outside. So I evaluated my fear of spiders and decided I could tolerate them.

now see, i'd never kill anything just because i felt scared of it.<br><br><br><br>
i'm not scared of bugs. unless they are coming towards me by the thousands, or they are unnaturally huge and within a few feet of me. i actually love spiders. i don't particularly care for the arachnids and insects that bite/sting, though.

I'm sure this will make me real popular, but I really don't like cats. Like, I <i>really</i> don't like cats. Plus, I'm allergic. I'm not going to go Gummo on any cats, but...

It's okay, Max. I'm not a dog person. I don't hate them, but it annoys me when they jump all over you and slobber and sniff you in embarrassing places.

I dont like most insects, but like most(all?) of you, I dont kill them for it.<br><br><br><br>
Kreeli, your afraid of horses? I live with 4 of them, and now that I think about it, theirs lots to be terrified of! But still, I just love the way horses show the difference between the predator mindset, which is most household pets, and that of the prey.
