Arachnophiles: Lovers Of The Unlovable

Having been known to peeiek at the sight of even the smallest house spider, I consider myself just about everything but an “arachnophile”. Today’s article (by guest writer dizrali), delves into the psyche of these outcasts of humanity.

peeiek (verb) – to simultaneously pee ones pants and shriek like an 8-year girl.

Where can I find this tape? I want to see it. By your standards I'm an arachnophile, but only with tarantulas.

I believe you have a picture of mine from my website. You have not asked for permission to use this picture. This is the page that this was on:

It is the picture of the skeleton. It is my own skeleton. Please remove and let me know when you have.

Thank you,

"In Australia this number is multiplied by 6 and at least 90 percent of them have the capacity to either kill you or turn you into a mumbling excrement factory for the rest of your life."

Article is awesome, even though I never quite understood the fear of spiders/snakes/*insert generic phobia*- but then again, it's hard to understand something you can't experience yourself..
I just don't find spiders that interesting- unlike centipedes or mantises they are pretty dull to keep and watch in daily rituals.

Also, ecdysozoa is not a family- it's superphylum. :P

Can only say that there are people of any kind, so also some who seem to have a bid of a unhealthy relationship when it comes to arachnids. I, for myself, have always liked insects (and the ecdysozoansfamily in total more than mammals. They are simply way more interesting. One must fear them, since they can kill you hurt you easily, and we can't get them tamed. Their numbers are massive, and yet they are unnoticed most of the time.
Story was well written, Dizrali, but please have a little bid more compasion with these fascinating creatures, and people who admire them, and let them have intimate rituals on their face ;P.
