    Industry better recognize!

    And now that we know they have flesh eating bacteria, all the more reason to squash them on sight.

    the guy who smash the phone should smack that noisy chic over the head with that shoe instead, actually that would be more funnier hehehe
  6. Anastasia..I agree..crackin' the girl over the head would've def added some giggles. I did get a laugh out of it even tho it's just sooooo wrong...lol. Almost everyone I work with know I collect Ts and several of them said I was the first person they thought of when they saw it...lol.

    I got a special kick out of this one, because I'd sent my coworker a picture of my b. smithi, and she forgot about it. She told me the next day that she was talking to some friends (in person) and was flipping through the pics on her phone to show them. All once, she was talking, and looked down to her phone (presumably to find another picture) when the b. smithi pic came up. She screamed and threw the phone across the room, cracking it.

    I can't wait to show her this vid. Hehehe.

    Anyone who freaks out over a B. smithi has some problems. People are so irrational with there fears.

    Uh. Ok. Number 1, someone who has a phobia of Ts won't be able to tell a B. smithii are usually docile.
    Number 2, I'm afraid of wasps, do you really think i give a hell what species of wasp is flying around me? Am I going to stop and start narrowing it down to a species? No. I'm going to run, and scream like a girl.

    Don't YOU have any phobias?

    I saw this last night and ran to tell my dad about it.
  15. for real. i should have known better than to turn the sound up for this. ouch.

    i wonder if i can get the same reaction from my mom... lol.
  16. Indeed. But ALL women are terrified of spiders, right? :rolleyes:

    nope, only the ones who squeal like that one in commercial
    nothing like good shoe smacking couldn't fix it :wicked:
  18. Oh, I'm with you 100%, haha. It just kind of ticks me off that us females are entirely expected to shriek and flip irrationally over bugs. I would have liked the commercial better if it had been one of the guys. :wicked:
