A few thoughts.

1.) The woman diving out of a moving car and leaving her son behind wins Parent of the Year hands down.

2.) I FINALLY beat That Indian Guy for top comment.

To be fair to the mom, I can totally see myself reacting like that. :oops: It's a split second panic response so higher functions such as "thinking" probably didn't even come into play until it was too late.

I could understand it if it was a centipede. I mean, those fuckers eat spiders. Also, the enemy of my enemy is my friend, so we clearly need to make an alliance with the spiders. Unless that means we have to put insects in our ice cream. Then all bets are off.

There are many excellent comments in that article.

I'm an arachnophile, so this sort of extreme arachnophobia just leaves me bemused.

Man created logic and because of that was superior to it. Logic He gave unto me, but no more. The tool does not describe the designer. More than this I do not choose to say. More than this you have no need to know.

I'm an arachnophobic pacifist. I'm somewhat afraid of spiders, although I strive to overcome my fear, but when a spider is within striking distance, I freeze up. I'm fine with spiders as long as they are away from me.
