|This shit is bananas B-A-N-A-N-A-S|
I remember the unforgettable RV trip with my sister to the beach. Outside of the RV there were hundreds of spiders. and lets just say that my revenge could have been a scene from the Killing Fields. Then there is the infamous Christmas tree. That year we chopped down our own Christmas Tree. It was such a nice tree until I discovered the next day it was infested with spiders. That year we sung O' Spider Tree.
I research on the fear of spiders or "arachnophobia". I found out that is the most common phobia. Some experts believe that it was a survival technique for our ancestors. When looking at the properties of a phobia, I realized that I actually have more of an obession than a phobia. Usually someone who has an arachnophobia can not kill the spider. They are usually paralized in fear and some will leave there own homes because they saw a spider. I do not have a problem killing a spider.
On the contrary I have found that there are people who love spiders, they are known as arachnophiles. There are forums and blogs just for spider lovers. But respecting the spider is not something new. In ancient Peru, the Moche people worshiped nature including Spiders. In ancient China, the Chinese called spiders "ximu",which means happy insects. Spiders were believed to bring happiness in the morning and wealth in the evening. And then there is Cambodia, where fried tarantulas are a delicacy!
