Oh Shit.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/wildlife/7913369/Tarantulas-on-the-loose-in-Britain.html

Even if they came in the direction of where I live, they still wouldn't survive it, and it doesn't look likely that they can breed in this climate. But still, I felt a pretty big rush of fear reading this.

The current precautions I'm employing are metal knickers, partly to keep the spiders out, partly to keep the poo in. RSPCA says they can spit hair in your eyes and blind you.

Anyone near where this is?

It's the Telegraph;

Britain could be facing a tarantula invasion after a number of the spiders were discovered in gardens in some parts of the country, wildlife experts have warned.


The alert came after two separate incidents involving 10cm-wide Chilean Rose tarantulas in Bolton, Greater Manchester.

Those are just spiders. It's not like countries who do have them are constantly on the verge of destruction because there are spiders around.

*Shuts eyes, clicks link*

*Very slowly opens eyes, sees tarantula, closes eyes, scrolls down*

Nah I don't live near there. And I won't be coming back to this thread so anyone posting any spider pictures won't be scaring me today, oh no.

This is Britain, we aren't brought up to deal with the dangerous things in life.

I say if you're going to import something hairy with loads of legs and fangs, you need to keep the damn cage shut, or you're going to have 60 million people crying and shitting themselves.

They've got 160 miles to go to get to me.

If they can make it, then I'll be afraid of them.

I don't live far from Bolton. Might go catch some and eat 'em for dinner
They made me do push ups in drag

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

They say spider invasion when there's been two cases and it then states the spiders can't live very long in this climate?

#17
I'm glad I'm here in the U.S. So unless these ****ers spout wings and fly over here then I'll be afraid as ****. (Arachnophobia) But good luck guys that's scary as hell.

Remember!

If you get bitten, you gotta dance non stop for long periods of time.

It's the only cure.

Lets jump in a pool

That's because the hairs themselves aren't actually fired from the spider. It simply sheds them, then if you were stupid enough to rub your eyes with spider hair on your hands you could potentially be blinded.

I'd throw something at it, and once I'm fairly sure it's dead light it on fire, and I wouldn't waste time calling animal control or w/e to tell them about how I killed a rare spider.

Worse than a ZOMBIE OUTBREAK!

Seriously, don't kill 'em. They're just animals. They act naturally.

Damn it, I live in Bolton and I'm gonna be totally paranoid now. It's no biggie since I hardly ever leave the house, but still. Tarantulas.

Winter would come and kill them all, if I found one I would catch it and keep it, save paying £45 for the ****ers

if you get bitten, you'll come down with a high fever, and the only cure is......


MORE COWBELL!

If you pick up a tarantula and harvest its legs it becomes a hairy snowman.


Just sayin'.
Balls.
