I've eaten certain spiders.
Spider-specialists say that spiders would consciously avoid your mouth when you sleep, saying that the idea of spiders going into your mouth while you sleep is a myth.
...I'm not sure whether that's untrue, or whether or not I've intentionally grabbed them in my sleep and put them in my mouth (I sleep move. Not sleep walk, that would mean I get up. I just sleep move).
I've woken up spitting one out. I've woken up and pulled out a few legs. I've woken up while it was crawling around in my mouth.
...so yeah. I'm a part of that "myth".
...they don't taste like anything, they're too small I guess. I suppose the larger ones would make a better taste.
I know ants are very edible, especially when dipped in chocolate.
But I love ants. ...I also love to kill ants.
:laugh: This is all too hilarious!
Ants' heads are sort of citrus like in taste. :D
My uncle would boil some water in a metal container, cover it with a metal plate and while it was hot, he would place some ants on the plate.
Damn ants, they ruined all my candies. :lurk:
I hate larger spiders. Their hair is really sticky.
Do you know more people are afraid of spiders than death?
I'd believe that.
Spiders are pretty creepy.
Death? Not so creepy. Give death a buncha' eyes and 8 legs with little spiny hairs all over. And make sure he moves slowly. Then sure, death'd be creepy.
...of course, change it into googly eyes, then maybe even a spider would be a lot funnier and less creepy.
I honestly think some spiders look adorable, but I am pretty creeped out by them at the same time.
Adorable? A spider the size of your hand one almost dropped on my neck. Lucky I have a sensitive neck, that I felt it dropping.
Took me half a spray can to kill it.
Sprays kill spiders? ... that's odd, sprays usually just freak out a spider. I guess I didn't spray them enough.
...crushing and downing them in a drain always worked.
Or if you're a pacifist to all creatures, just let them crawl onto you (or onto anything), then let them out of the house.
...and yeah! Adorable! Don't you find tarantulas adorable? Big, fuzzy, with a whole bunch o' button eyes starin' right at ya'? Even their fangs, fat and furry! :D
So cute! ...but creepy at the same time!
...it's like a baby having buttons for eyes, adorable - yet creepy. :p
Darling is weird!!
but, tarantulas are kinda cute... i guess...
but i've always wondered what it would be like to shot a big spider... like with a gun...
Bleh, they sense the fear very well. I'm pretty sure not all spiders are poisonous.
Of course not all of them are poisonous... at least in the sense of poison-poison. Some poisons just cause pains.
:) They sure do sense fear very well - that's why I don't have one for a pet. :D
