Why'd they chase that spider out. She could've be free of ear bugs.

See, to me, this is disgusting and alarming and horrifying and as close to the abyss as I ever want to get. IF a creature was in MY ear you'd damn well have to straight-jacket me, give me IV ativan push (and push it FAST motherfkker) then give me ten days inpatient to work out my issue with having a freaking spider in my EAR.

Far more people suffer and die from mosquitoes than from spiders. Ingeniously, you'll never hear from mosquitoes again.

I posted this guy from my windowsill in 2008. Looks like the same bastard.

Hey Mike! Welcome to the cellar!

A biologist I follow on Twitter (@pzmyers) tweeted about this when someone brought it to his attention. PZ refers to the spider as a 'salticid' and says they're '...Active hunters; not likely to snuggle down for days like that, or let themselves get trapped' (August 12).
