    You guys know that roaches are harmless, right? :lol:

    I go away for one second and see what happens!

    Hello everybody,

    thank you very much for replying to my post. There were some very interesting things in there. Spiders scare the living crap out of me too (it's a phobia, what can I say) but they fascinate me no end. I just have to see them when we're in the zoo.

    I once heard about 'witters' or 'wetters' in NZ. Apparently they're grass hoppers that come up to your calf. Talking about scary things...

    And the quote from Dean Koontz is a classic. Thx for sharing.

    Regards,

    Marcel

    Eeeuhhh!

    By the way, concerning my last post. The creatures are called Giant Weta's and they look something like this:

    Lords Of Apathy: LOA ANIMAL SPOTLIGHT: GIANT WETA

    Talking about insects growing larger than Mother Nature intended!

    Regards!

    They're not disgusting or eww-worthy! Spiders are lovely.

    Yeah, for sure
    I couldn't agree more... Have you seen the movie Cube? I think it was a perfect example of that.

    On another note I'm also afraid of heights and I have a slight phobia with dogs that thankfully is becoming less incapacitating.

    Cube was a great movie. Didn't watch the sequels.

    Yeah, I got to admit, they sent me into a right panic, but I can't help finding extremely interesting at the same time. It's my curse... sigh...

    Probably for the best, it'll ruin your happy memories. I remember watching a bit of one of them and it was a big yawn-fest. Same with the Saw-movies. First one, good concept, the rest... well...

    I'm sending a double peace gesture - like Richard Nixon did when he boarded the White House helicopter:
