    Re: What is this bug?

    I've seen these before. Never knew what they were until I saw a thread on reddit and some bug expert answered it. I think they are harmless and eat a lot of bugs and insects that you wouldn't want in your house.

    Then, again, they are creepy as hell and scare the **** out of you when they scurry across the floor.

    It's called a Silverfish. They are nasty little creatures.

    House centipede. Can bite, so you shouldn't pet it, but they are common and beneficial. Fast little things, too.

    Not a silverfish. They are smaller, but are remarkable in their own right. They have no real eyes... but have light sensors on their back. Awesome.
