    That scientist had two of them on his hand, they look pretty harmless. Maybe they make great pets Did you read about the one that got sick at the museum and was hand fed a nutrient solution and it got better in a couple of hours?

    Yeah I read about it.

    Cockroaches can crawl on your hands too. BUT THEY ARE STILL THE ENEMY!

    Daddy Longlegs spiders are my best allies. But as dexterous as they are with their webs and their legs there's no way they could take on those behemoths. They remind me of Kafka's The Metamorphosis.
