And I don't know when it will come out. I missed the damn thing 2 times. I don't know if I'll be able to sleep tonight.

And now the spiders under your bed going "Phew, that human almost got me twice now. I don't think I'll be able to sleep tonight." ;)

Seriously though, I wouldn't worry much about it. Even if it was one of the handful of species that can harm you with it's bite, it's not likely to actually seek you out to attack.

No – but that spider will get eaten by a bigger spider, which in turn will get eaten by a bigger one... before we know it, poor SamIchi will be getting munched on by a spider the size of a small car.

Don't say I didn't warn you...

Unless it wants revenge for SamIchi's previous failed attempts on its life. But that's probably not the case. Definitely probably not.

You could say I got an acute case of arachnephobia. I fell uneasy knowing it's still alive in my room, none the less under my bed somwhere, waiting.

It is just a spider - any dimension data - smaller than a quarter, larger, etc...was he or she looking at you with all those eyes? ;)
It was about a centimeter, black. really quick one, otherwise I would've gotten it. I thought I got it the first time, it must've one of those strong ones, radioactive maybe.

Oh lord, iGary, now Sam's next post will be that he burned down his house.

Picture Sam as Bill Murry in Caddyshack after he blows the golf course up... and the gopher's still poking his head up.

one morning i woke up a huge wolf spider(or something similar) on my pillow with its fangs all pointing at me, i screamed like a little girl. I couldn't sleep for a few days with the paranoia
 
What if the spider is radioactive? Will SamIchi become able to climb on walls and have hyper-reflexes? Will he be able to sense danger? Will he learn to build Web Blasters? Will he have to fight the Gates Pin, The Compaqer, The "Alienware" Venom, sorry got nothin' that rhymes w/ IBM.

My room's been spider free for the past 4 years. The last one died in a blob of hair gel, t'was a good shot. thing is I HATE spiders but I wasn't scared. I knew I'd get it. which makes me a bad person... probably.

a good preventative is to spray bug killer stuff around windows and doors. like a salt ring against a demon. keeps them out. alternatively stick a Dyson down there :p

One time there was a huge (to me, anything bigger than a dot is big) spider on the ground and I was way too scared to get near it, so I let my hamster loose in the house and he ate it. :D

Call me a weirdo, but I don't mind spiders. I do get rid of them out of the house, but it's more in a "poor guys, stuck in the house" sort of way.

Same here.
I love them.
Don't kill it.
Please.
I don't even kill cockroaches. Well, normally anyways. :eek:

Last summer there were loads of big 'uns, and I was up really late one night and saw something brown and substantial run across the floor out of the corner of my eye and thought it was a mouse so went to investigate. It turned out to be a beast of a thing. I caught it under a ramekin dish, and it kept running around inside and had freakishly heavy footsteps - I could really feel the weight of each leg tapping on my hand. Took a photo as well, obviously, to scare my bloke with the next day. :p
