[QUOTE]Footage posted online yesterday shows thousands of spiders "falling from the sky" in the southern Brazilian town of [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santo_Antônio_da_Platina"]Santo Antônio da Platina[/URL].[/QUOTE] Source: [URL]http://gawker.com/5982891/meanwhile-in-brazil-its-raining-spiders[/URL]
Spiders often spin long, thin webs that work as parachutes, grabbing an updraft and flying away. It's way weird for so many and so large spiders to do it, though.
uuuuuughhhh. Imagine walking underneath them
Watching the video, it's not raining them. They're clearly on a giant-ass web. [editline]9th February 2013[/editline] But yeah, here's a spider ballooning. [IMG]http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_magoumTeLD1r4nd19o1_1280.jpg[/IMG] It spins a long string that is light enough to catch the wind, allowing the spider to fly. Sometimes, they fly too much and freeze to death in the cold atmosphere.
I'd be so paranoid. I wouldn't want to ever go outside with them out there.
I thought I had seen all the nope in my life already This just beats it all

My cat eats spiders
NOPE NOPE NOPE, THESE VILE BEINGS DO NOT EXIST.
Thank God this didn't happen in Australia. Even watching that video in the source freaked me out.

Jeez Louise, that's certainly a sticky situation there Ryan. Just as well it wasn't raining fish; that could be classified as an act of cod. But in all seriousness, my sister would probably have a terror seizure if she saw that. Not that she has seizures or anything, she just hates spiders.
is having arachnophobia the cool hip new thing, like it used to be OCD and spamming "OMG PLZ FIX" everytime something was slightly crooked or whatever
Nope, a lot of people just actually have it. I don't see what's 'cool' about being terrified of tiny insects anyway.
[QUOTE=0FucksGiven;39527017]is having arachnophobia the cool hip new thing, like it used to be OCD and spamming "OMG PLZ FIX" everytime something was slightly crooked or whatever[/QUOTE] That is really fucking dumb How is pretending to have a phobia even slightly cool/hip I have the phobia and its really shitty, stupid brain making the rest of the body panic as soon as it sees a tiny little bug There are far too many things the brain has direct control over that I don't
[QUOTE=0FucksGiven;39527017]is having arachnophobia the cool hip new thing, like it used to be OCD and spamming "OMG PLZ FIX" everytime something was slightly crooked or whatever[/QUOTE] Or maybe it's just a common phobia...

I don't have arachnophobia, but damn, that's for sure a lot of spiders. I wouldn't dare walking outside without a NBQ suit and a flamethrower.
Remind me not to go to Brazil.
[QUOTE=0FucksGiven;39527017]is having arachnophobia the cool hip new thing, like it used to be OCD and spamming "OMG PLZ FIX" everytime something was slightly crooked or whatever[/QUOTE]Its one of the most common specific phobias in the world.
Raining spiders, literally my worst nightmare of all time.

That's really awesome! So, is this like anthill, but instead of ants with spiders, and instead of with hill, with a huge web? If only we had them instead of ants. Ants suck. Spiders rule.
