  • How to get Arachnaphobia.

    I don't know about you guys, but spiders in TUT and Thief always gave me the heeby-jeebies.

    I was always a nature kind of guy. I like to go out in the woods, and look at birds, insects, and other animals.

    However, I realized the other day, that I am now deathly afraid of getting near spiders. This is new...I always thought spider were cool, I still think they are..but keep the goddammed things away from me.

    I blame Thief and TUT for this Sudden-onset case of Arachnaphobia.

        I hate spiders. I blame most of this hate on Thief and Thievery...I used to turn the volume down slightly when I'd go near spiders in either game. Not all the way, but just enough so their strange hisses wouldn't blare in my ears.

          Whenever I see a spider these days, it seems to be at least twice as large as they used to before I played thiever. I like to catch them and show them to my little brother so he totally freaks out.

                Can't say I'm afraid of spiders, but I had a rather creepy incident last night. It was asylum and I just before I spawn for the second time, I realized that the giant green spider was right behind me, waiting for me to spawn. I couldn't see it but I could hear loud and clear the freaking thing for at least 10 seconds, trying to figure out a way to save myself! My death was fast and painfull...

                  When I was young, we had an infestation of brown recluses in our house. FOr those of you who don't know, brown recluses are one of only two spiders in North America whose venom is dangerous to humans, and they make the other species, the black widow, look meek and helpless by comparison. It was unnerving enough to find a couple of these in my bedroom, but waking up one morning with one crawling across my chest was truly freaky.

                  I have some pics of the progression of a brown recluse bite at home. I'll post them if anyone's interested, but only as links, because the later ones are quite disgusting.

                      I dont think it should go unsaid that you are lucky to be alive.


                      Probably the worst way to expire.

                        My understanding is that brown recluse bites can be treated, but treatment usually involves cutting away the affected flesh as soon as possible, as it quickly goes necrotic, and the gangrene spreads from there. As it was, my reaction on waking was to smach the thing that was actually quite peacefully making it's way across me, well before it even had a chance to do anything.
