For if you stare too long into the eyes of the spider, does it not stare into you?
smithsonian, spider photography, thomas shahan, bugs of all varieties
NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE
@par_parenthese Definitely not how I envisioned the start to my day
@par_parenthese I SECOND THIS, SUMMON THE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE OCTOPUS.
@Ialdagorth Nopetopus, Jr. distrusts hairy land octopodes.
@Ialdagorth THE NOPETOPUS
@leylusha NOPETOPUS JR. I am in love. I knew he/she must have a name so glorious.
@Lady Humungus I don't know where my embedded gif went, but here's a friend for the big one to hightail it with:
I am so alert now!
Okay, in all seriousness. Can we not have giant spiders above the cut?
@thatgirl Yes! It should be pixelated.
@thatgirl YES. I wish I could burn this post with fire.
I consider The Hairpin to be a safe space. A space that protects against unwanted visions of horror.
@thatgirl THIS. I came pretty close to crying, I wasn't expecting spiders and as an arachnophobe it was not exactly a good start to my lunch break. :(
THEIR EYES ARE SO SHINY WHY AM I LOOKING AT ALL THESE PICTURES WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME
This just reminds me of that woman with the spider in her ear. To be her doctor and check her ears and see A SPIDER STARING BACK AT YOU.
@Emmanuelle Cunt "Oh, hey there, little guy!"
@meetapossum One time when I was little I got this cheap little pen-style microscope on a field trip, and I looked at EVERYTHING with it. One time I picked up a piece of moss to look at. There was a gigantic (in the microscope) caterpillar-like thing in it! I immediately squealed and dropped it, and to this day I'm afraid to step on moss in my bare feet.
@meetapossum When my uncle was around 10, he woke up screaming with blood running out of his ear. Doctors found part of a bug embedded in his ear canal. Few days later, it repeated and they managed that time to pull the rest of that sucker out. My dad said he slept with pillows over his ears for quite a while after. I blame that story for why I have to have my hair covering my ears when I sleep (right, like that's really going to stop some bug crawling in).
@all I am so happy I wear earplugs to sleep. Had not even considered that I was preventing bugs from CRAWLING IN MY EARS AGRGHSshgshghhhhh
@de Pizan NOOOOOOO
I can't sleep with anything touching my ears. D:
:-( I feel like this is maybe a common enough phobia to NOT HAVE IT BE WHAT I SEE ON MY MORNING TEA BREAK :-( :-( :-(
Gagging and queasy.
I clicked on the video thinking I would not spend 8+ minutes of my day watching a video about spiders but I was SO WRONG. I love this guy and his crazy beard and his adorable enthusiasm about terrifying arachnids.
@TheBelleWitch Yes! I am so torn about so many things in this video. On one hand, spiders must be escorted out of my living quarters with a haste... or smooshed. But, on the other hand he has so much enthusiasm and is so sweet and enthusiastic. I want to believe that spiders are cute and as beautiful as they are in his pictures but I'm not sure that I ever will. Still, he is a delight!
Is it me or is the yellow spider at 6:27 oddly charismatic?
awwwww..Jumping spiders are so cute! Have you seen the little dances they do? Adorable!
ARACHNOPHOBIA TRIGGER WARNINGS PLEASE THANK YOU VERY MUCH
how many spiders live in his beard?
@Queen Elisatits Ask A Spider?
