    eek Thousands of spiders blanket Australian farm after escaping flood

    What appears to be snow is actually spider webs blanketing an Australian farm. (Daniel Munoz/Reuters)
    Thousands of normally solitary wolf spiders have blanketed an Australian farm after fleeing a rising flood.
    Reuters reports that the flooding has forced more than 8,000 Australian (human) residents from their homes in the city of Wagga Wagga in New South Wales. But for every temporarily displaced person, it appears several spiders have moved in to fill the void

    Ummm....

    Comparing insects to human beings is, shall we say.....a little bit odd?

    Who are you gonna save first from a burning building....

    your dog? or your child?

    There should be no comparison at all.

    1. spiders aren't insects.
    2. They are all animals but spiders aren't really parasites.

    They are from the phylum arthropoda....closely related to the insect family. Yes, they do have a function.....but I hate them anyway because they scare the shit out of me.

    You can't tell me that you don't know of anyone that has arachnophobia, can you?

    Many, many people hate spiders.

    Just because you hate something, doesn't mean it should be dead.
