A camel spider tried to bunk with me in my bivuoac, does that count??

Nope, no spiders here. If any of our family remembers brought home one, I'd immediatly Raid it or find some other painful way of death for it. I don't like spiders...

+1.

As far as "insect-type" creatures go, they seem quite intelligent.

(I know that they're not insects)

I must agree, setting stuff on fire is fun. I just lit a candle earlier today...I know I'd find some use for a flamethrower if I had one...

I use to catch them when I lived in Arkansas along with scorpions. I did not keep them as pets. Got stung 7 times by one scorpion that made it's way into my bed.

Spiders make me a-scared.

I think if I saw one of them big ass things in my house, I'd yell, "You are a threat and I'm in fear of my life."  What would follow would be a few nice days patching holes in my walls.

I can't put my feet on the floor now. Thanks. And I'm going to be jumpy all night.



I don't like you anymore You should warn a person before you pull that crap.

Had one for a pet as a teenager.  (WTF was I thinking?)  I stuck my hand down in there once and it lurched at me.  I slammed the lid shut and never opened it again.

and I don't know their species.

And they don't play nice with each other...
