Weird, I find that spider close-up almost kinda cute. It looks a bit like a muppet.
Welcome, plenty of room!
It actually causes my heart rate to speed up, my fight or flight responses to kick in, hyperventilation, itching everywhere, anxiety attack and paranoia. Yes, just a picture will do that. I have blocked the actual image, because I couldn't read this thread if it stayed there. Even now, with it blocked, my reactions will be jumpy for a bit. More than likely, I will also be unable to sleep for at least a few hours.
^ you rotten bastard.
Hey, if anybody has it, I've been looking for a funny picture I saw a few years ago; I've Google Images to death:
It was a picture of Mal from "Firefly" in a defensive stance, with what I recall a Photoshopped Kirk (from "Generations") with his back facing us and MAl pointing at him and it said something like, "Fuck no we all can't just get along!".
It was awesome.
I love TinEye:
This one made me .
So you guys are pretty much determined to give J. a heart attack, aren't you?
I did wonder if I should have put up a warning and several empty lines before the images in my post but decided against it as this is the internet and images like these are pretty easy to look away from and scroll past...
and most of those images are with the smiling spidey -with only two eyes!
As a non-arachnophobe, I must say the one with the smile is scarier than the untouched pic.
I'm not sure what that is, but I'm guessing it's probably related to this:
that makes me wanna reach for a shotgun...
^ It looks like a melting piece of chocolate.
You keep saying that word, but I don't think you know what it means.
This is why I never admit to arachnophobia - it's a siren call for people to post every spider picture they've ever had
I'm not going to go through and turn every spider/arthropod image into a link (just the worst offender), but when someone tells you they have debilitating arachnophobia, don't immediately start posting a bunch of spider and isopod and other related creepy crawly pictures without at least covering them in links and giving a warning. J. Allen should be able to read the thread like everyone else and not have to deactivate images.
Obviously we can't control people posting them randomly throughout the thread, but you can at least not react to him saying it by trying to freak him out.
J., it might be better in the future to just not mention the arachnophobia at all since it only makes people post more spiders. Oh, and you owe me, so I get immediate veto powers on your next furry post.
In the meantime, here are some puppies, kittens, bunnies, and ducklings to even things out. And no, none of you have puppykittenbunnyducklingphobia, before some wiseass says that.
