    Lol my Fedex guy has arachnohobia and he doesn't like my deliveries.

    And this is also true for people who are into taxidermy, I feel so bad for my post office lady when I get in a box of raw skulls that hasn't been packaged carefully enough in the summer...

    Oh yeah, it's awful! There was one box that stank so bad you could smell it all the way down the street from behind the post office. They called me at 6 am to come pick it up, and oh god was I mortified. It's amazing it made it through the mail system at all. That seller definitely got put onto my blacklist

    So, I take it some of y'all are also from the DFW area? On tonight's news, the weatherman showed a picture of a pretty big wolf spider drinking from a birdbath, but called it a tarantula. Within three minutes, he was telling people to stop tweeting him about how it's not a tarantula. I quote: "But it could have been!"

    But it wasn't, bub. Stick to meteorology.

    I think they meant using a red light for looking at them as opposed to using it as a permanent fixture?? Correct me if I'm wrong!

    You know your a hobbyist when you disappear off into the bush during a romantic stroll in the woods to find materials for the 'au natural' GBB set up you're working on. Then, inevitably, coaxing your partner into lugging a load of old wood and stones home in her hand bag!

    Your wife re-labels your spider tubs with nonsensical versions of scientific names for her own entertainment.

    When your eyes are blurry from looking at picture threads, sales adds, genus threads,
    and you've filled a shopping basket on many web sites multiple times. Or you cant go a month without buying,trading for more ;)
