    Yes, but what do they like to read? They won't be just attracted by any old literature.

    Ohmygawd. That is the most horrifying thing I've ever seen in my life.

    I like spiders. They are useful and harmless (the ones in the Netherlands.)

    We don't have poisonous black widows and whatnot. We have some spiders around the house that don
    t web, but eat lotsa mosquito's. They're pretty big but otherwise harmless for humans. I love them! Rather have a bunch of them in my room, then a mosquito.

    You only live once - kill it.
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,

    Sort of like now, sitting about 3' away from my monitor just in case this crazy thing somehow jumps at my face, and yet unable to look away.

    The science lesson is definitely interesting, though. I didn't know all those facts about jumpers.
    You're almost like my wife. And she couldn't look at these pictures at all, and can't even stand to hear the word "tarantula". And she freaks at the wispy little beige house spiders we used to get in some of our apts. We are so lucky in NYC not to have these hideous things they have elsewhere. The ones in Sydney are outright deadly from what I hear!
    Where in the USA is the OP from? It's hard to tell how big that first one is.

    The jumping spiders around here are basically ant-sized. So they never bothered me, and I always thought they were cool; how they appear to fly away when you put your finger near it. (Had one hanging down on a strand from the kitchen ceiling once, and wifey made me wash it down the drain, because I had no quick way to get it to the window fast enough for her! )
    The thing most scary about bug encounters is her reaction, and not knowing what/how big it is. One time I thought I heard her saying "spider, spider', and I dragged my feet, and she was actually saying "fire, fire"! (a napkin on the stove caught fire). One buggish thing she called me for turned out to be a half-eaten grape!

    So please, don't kill it. Jumping spiders are harmless, funny to observe and can help you get rid of some annoying flies and mosquitoes.
    I killed one once (that looked just like the opener post described with the green eyes), and felt AWFUL. I didn't really want to do it, but I didn't know what it was and it was close to my kitten and I didn't know if it was poisonous.

    I still wish I'd let it live. It was big and really cool and I was so sad afterwards...

    Animals that watch YOU are always interesting. It's recognition that we find compelling even if they're just thinking something completely alien beyond our ken.
    God is this ever true. It makes the little hairs on my arms stand up. Sometimes it even makes me say something like "stop. looking. at. meeeeeee. RIGHT NOWWWW!" and then run away.

    If one is terrified, one can always use a cup (must be see-through) and a paper so there is no chance of skin to skin contact. I do this. I've even done it with wasps before, and those evil little fuckers deserve to smashed ruthlessly.

    Did someone say wasp? KILL. DESTROY. ANNIHILATE.

    Hate. Wasps.
