So last week i was in Wood Tech at school, there was a spider crawling around...so i thought i would be a hero and get it, i picked it up put it in a jar and it played dead...so i put it on the bench and poked it.

Turns out to be Australia's Deadliest Spider, the Funnel Web.



Anyone else had any of these experiences?

i once grabbed the part of an electric fence that would be live, we didn't know where the source was and i didn't know what to grab or what not to touch...luckily there was no current going through it.

I've got three blackwidows in a jar in my garage,all which were found within 10 feet of my front door. I don't know why everybody seems to be so scared of them, they don't seem to be too aggresive

I was trying to get to sleep one hot summer night, and something lands on my head.

I brush it off, and then I realize; GIANT ****ING SPIDER.

I turn the light on, and there before me was a full grown wolf spider....
(I was able to take the ****er out with my airsoft rifle and vacuum cleaner).

i was at my gf's place 2 days ago and her younger sister came out her room screaming all HUGE SPIDER!

so i got 3 tissues and like grabbed it, scrunched it into a ball and threw it into her sisters bin.

the sister was all, NOW I HAVE SPIDER GUTS ON MY WALL and all DONT PUT IT IN MY BIN!

she get grabbed it and put it into the main bin, which was empty (the bin bad was full next to the bin)

so i reach in to pick it up, and the spider fell out un halmed and was running around in a frantic skitz.

it was a very large white tip or what ever they are, it was huge for its species.

anyways, i thought it was funny.

I caught a black widow in a storage room at work, and I kept it under a clear plastic cup at my register in the middle of the night. I left a note next to it saying, "Free black widow, house trained, loves kids."

No one wanted her. I'm honestly surprised no government agencies were sent to give us fines or anything.. But then, it was mostly drunk people coming in that night. One guy was scared when he lifted the cup up cause he didn't believe the sign.

I finally overcame my fear of spiders. Still terrified of pictures of spiders, though. Dunno why.

I was very lucky once, where there had been a spider in my room for atleast a week, i just let them chill untill someone is like "OH HOLY ****" and i have to throw em out, but this one was cool.

I fell asleep while he was on the wall next to my bed, and when i woke up, he wasn't there. I hopped out of bed, yawning and stretching, and looked down to find him completely still on my pillow.

That's not all, as i looked closer, he was missing a leg, after doing a quick scan, i found a leg on the other side of the bed, which means somehow in my sleep i had rolled over and squashed his ass.

But wait, i went to grab him, because no one likes dead spiders on there pillows, and he moved. So not only had this guy been partying on my bed, but i had rolled over, took off a limb, and all the while he had been running around, able to bite me like foreign kids swarming for 'world aid'.

This was a GREAT story to tell to arachnaphobes.

Also, if you mean dumb experiences (this would be the 2nd time i've linked to this)

^You should have reattached it with krazy glue. He would have been in your debt for the rest of his life, and he would have told all the other spiders not to mess with you. You know, some spiders are fifteen times as poisonous as rattle snakes? They're not something you don't want on your side.
