January 16, 2008: Giant Spider

At 5th and Morrill, in Reno Nevada, there's what appears to be a giant spider on the roof. shiver I hate when that happens.


Thankfully, from ground level it's not a spider, but a beetle... VW Beetle.

Lot's of predators in Reno, but this one is benign.

it's not a spider, it's a bug! I would never, ever, have opened this thread if it weren't for the cheatsheet rollover thingy which assured me that, indeed, it was NOT an actual giant spider. Thank goodness!

Hicks: What was that bump?
Johnnie: Oh shit, man, we just ran over a car. We just squashed a car!
Hicks: What kind of car?
Johnnie: A Volkswagen. A fucking beetle!
Hicks: Oh, no. We squashed a beetle.

There's a fellow here in Indiana who has one of those hanging from the trees in his yard. Pretty funny when you all of sudden come upon it.
BTW..long time lurker, first time poster.

why? Why? WHY did I follow that link?!?! I KNEW it was going to be disgusting. Well, I won't be eating for a couple of days, and it'll be a week before the shiver in my spine is gone.

Don't give into temptation, Cloud... stay away.

Sorry. I thought it was obvious it was going to be a link to a big nasty spider after Cloud's comment. I mean, come on. What else would it be?
