    I mean, I know people are trying to show off and look like good parents on Facebook. I get that. It's just that you end up looking like a super-paranoid nature-hating helicopter parent. Let's say your kid actually manages to get bitten by a garter snake or a rat snake or a corn snake...so what? It's part of life, cupcake. If you're worried it will be an ongoing issue...well, at least your kid might be on track to get a Darwin Award someday if nothing else.

    Yes. Most people act like I am nuts, but I think tarantulas have a cute side, too:



    I love the way they clumsily, absent-mindedly lope around. I like the moments when they stop and momentarily forget what they are doing. It's hilarious.
    This is not going to go the way you think....

    I used to know a woman who proudly confessed to deliberately running over harmless garter snakes with her car if she saw them sunning themselves at the side of the road. I thought it was pretty deplorable.

    @msg_v2 I would love to get a tarantula, but my roommate would throw a fit.

    they're so fuzzy and they always seem to have more limbs than they are certain as to what to do with... kind of like newborn lambs

    Wow, that woman sounds like a piece of work.

    I would say so, yes.

    Hmm.. here's an idea. Take a cue from the Brady Bunch Goes Hawaiian and obtain a Polynesian idol; giant spiders should immediately follow.

    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Over 3 weeks of De Quervain tenosynovitis from all the baby carrying. Seems to be a typical problem (not that that's a big consolation).

    I understand that my bosses have been busy this week and last week, but I want to be able to do my job, and I have not really been trained to do it yet! Please for the love of God give me more responsibility, because I am bored as fuck!

    So weird- I just heard somebody get diagnosed with this on SiriusXM Dr. Radio. It sound like a common post-partum thing, but it has to be frustrating, because how do you rest it when you still need to hold the baby? I'm not trying to give you medical advice but the Dr. Radio guys said the treatment was a certain kind of splint that immobilizes the thumb.
