    ... and Survived!

    The little bugger was a little more than a quarter of an inch long. It kept climbing up the wet walls of the tub and tried to scramble towards me, but kept falling back. I didn't kill it, but kept an eye on it as I lathered up and shampooed. It eventually rested on a bar of soap. So basically, the spider and I used the soap this morning.

    I made no attempt to kill it 'cause I hate killing spiders. Maybe this thread would be more exciting to read if the spider were 4 feet long, but the reason I'm sharing this is, if I can share my shower with a spider, why can't the rest of the world follow my example and be tolerant of the different things around us. Why can't the Muslims, for example, tolerate the Christians? It's something to ponder about.

    Centipedes, on the other hand, are ugly as shit and I kill them on sight.

    Interesting thought.... Now.... I agree with the Christians living in peace with the muslims... but I could NEVER share a shower with a spider! If I see one... I am leaving that shower pronto and trying to get somebody to get it out of there for me. Now... if I'm living alone I just would never use that shower again until the spider is gone. lol.

    Umm, there would be no way that I could stand there in a shower with a spider, good patience on you!!!I sat front row at the movie theatre when arapniphobia (I know I cant spell) came out, and every since then spiders freak me out.

    Im in agreeance with you on the other, why cant we all just get along, lol.

    I grew up in a very racist family (whites against blacks) and now as an adult I have some great black friends. If anything Im racist against humans, we are all crazy now a days. Were killing eachother, giving blame for what happend in the way past. Kids beating eachother up, shooting up schools, parents throwing their kids out windows.

    Why cant we all just see that this WORLD is in a whole lot of trouble and its going to get so much worse if we dont stop fighting against eachother and start working together.

    Its a shame, but as long as we continue to teach our children the way that we do, I dont see anything changing in the near future.

    My unbridled admiration to you!
    People's lack of tolerance and active hatred of others is astonishing isn't it? Why can't everyone just be nice? It's so much easier than being angry and hateful.

    HAHA I loved it!

    Don't feel bad about the centipede thing, finding someone who would be comfortable showering with a centipede would be hard to find!

    omg I'm dead scared of spiders but I try not to kill them either, I'll try and trap them in a container and take them outside, because well, there's no insects in my house so it would starve anyways and that makes me sad, so I let out outside in the hopes it gets a better life away from me lol

    I'm not afraid of spiders,nor any insects for that matter. They're harmless!

    Why cant we all just get along? because Ignorance is seemingly easier.
