    For the spider lover in you, note well: scientists say that we humans accidentally swallow spiders as we sleep. Yep, read that in more than one place. Sweet dreams!

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    I saw something on History channel where they were talking about english explorers in the 19th and 18th centuries in africa claiming they saw spiders as large as humans. Now THAT would suck

    Re: I'm not afraid of spiders but

    I have a very severe case of arachnophobia.
    If I saw that thing in person, I'd probably pass out after I pee and **** my pants.
