    squish it, because I like to assert dominance over the spider, I'm the alpha spider damnit!
    In no likes experiment.

    Well it's your damn fault for leaving the doors open, innit.

    I just ignore it really, unless it's a threat on my meal or toilette paper. Wouldn't want a bug up my arse now would I?

    exactly... that's why I feel bad about killing them

    I caught a very large dragonfly and took it outside earlier... its eyes were downright trippy

    I started wondering if there was something wrong with MY eyes just looking at it

    If it is just a giant house spider, or a Tegenaria gigantea to the pretentious, Falcarius' just leaves it where it is. If it is some other type of spider he puts it under his magnifying glass and wonders what the hell it is.

    Too funny! Let's see...

    4 legs live - goes outside if I can catch it
    6 legs usually dies on sight
    8 legs it depends...if it is smaller than a dime, I usually leave it alone. Bigger either gets killed or put outside...depends on whether it runs or not...if it's fast, it dies haha.
    8+ legs I usually just put them outside - around here, that is usually a harmless roly poly or centipede
    Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

    Probably, but it depends who one asks.
