There is a story to spiders, here it goes.

All the Earth was covered with male animals, and all the female animals were gods.
The spider had the passage way to heaven, using its web
But one day, all the food went missing, because the duck stole it.
But the spider was blamed for the crime.
All the male animals hated the spider.
Then the spider took away the web to heaven.
So all the male animals couldn't get to the females.

This story is basically about how the spider is a misunderstood creature.

A wolf spider? Wow, those things are big! I'd probably freak if I saw that.
To be honest, I've seen them online while searching up other pictures and they creep me out still. During art, I had to look up a spider picture though because we had to do a 'fear factor' in art. But, I couldn't look at it for anything over half a minuet. So I didn't do to well on the anatomy. xD

I dont touch spiders, they seem different to me. Although, sometimes I go to a tarantula festival in C.A. when its mating time.
My dad is great with spiders but im not, I usually dont go to those things...

I find that there are far too many spiders in the world. Did you know that through the course of one year, the average person has swallowed 10 spiders in their sleep. Spiders don't belong in the house. I can't bring myself to kill them myself because I"m too much of a coward (I fear them). So I usually get my mom to do it.

I've heard about the swallowing of spiders while you sleep before and the very thought of such things is creepy/ a tad gross.

I try not to kill them because I realize they are helpful, but if they are inside the house most of the time I do end up killing them...

EEeek!! A few nights ago right after a friend told me to kill the spiders in my room, (or that night) i was all snuggled in my cozy covers at night and talking to myself (Again :b) and i saw this 'Hair' Cawling up my shoulder, i was like, 'Oh, just hair,' But i looked again, and I was near my 'Runaway Point' so i called my mom and that thing was crawling on my shoulder! thankfully it was only a daddy long leg, only the most venomes spider in the world, venom!! sheesh, only its jaws are to small to bite us, so, i was ok, :)

When I was little, and there was a spider in my room, I would also go sleep out on the couch in the living room. I never told my parents, because I thought the spider would be gone by morning. If it's a bit black, yucky spider, I get my dad or mom to kill them. Brown, tan spiders I can kill myself. x3 Yep, I kill them. Not when they're outside though, that is. Just inside

Meh... I don't really like spiders a ton but I don't kill them. I'll freeze when i see one, get a peice of paper, get on the paper, and chuck the paper off the deck about a a mile away (OK maybe 10 feet :| ). My friend *cough* not mentioning any names *cough* used to all ways freak the second she saw a spider. I would always be the one to go oer and put it out side as she went into a frenzy of kill it! and Get it away!'s. Now she's much better with spiders... sometimes :? . Any way, they do seem to help with other pests, and I could never kill one my self. Unless it's a black widow in close proximity.

I love spiders. I've got a pet tarantula, even. If I find a spider in my home I generally just catch it and release it outside. The only times I will kill a spider instead of catching it is if I somehow can't release it, or if I'm not sure whether or not the said spider is dangerous. Otherwise, I love spiders.

I agree... If they go in my house, they're gonna die.... Unless it's one of the spiders that I'm not afraid of and actually like... I generally like the spiders that don't freak me out...

The spiders that freak me out are the small skinny ones with really creepy skinny legs, like the daddy long legs and house spiders...

The spiders that don't freak me out are the ones that don't look like spiders(eg ant spider, camel spider), jumping spiders, tarantulas and anything resembling a tarantula(they're so cute and fluffy), fat spiders with thick chubby legs(so fat and cute!), most orb weavers(in the fall you can see tons of them and they're a pretty golden color and they have huge webs!) and funny-looking or pretty spiders(funny looking is ogre spider, spikey orb weaver, pretty are lynx spider, gold orb weaver(or watever its called))
