SON OF A BITCH

I really only ask one thing from the space race, and that is that there be no goddamn spiders up there.  Is that so hard?

    what about astroselachimorpha? eh?

    Bwaaaaaah! Floating spiders! Blech. No thanks.

    They can’t function in weightlessness – their legs would get all tangled and they’d die.

    …I hope.

    @Avi … Apparently they are able to overcome this disadvantage by spinning ‘crazy webs’ in a 3-dimensional manner instead of the classic web we see on Terra. At least one can run like hell when a tangled mass of webs are spotted in a hatchway or EVA suit. Yikes!

    Oh, for fuck’s sake. I really have no problems with snakes, but if there is a spider in a confined space with me, I will be a crazy, jumpy, squealy little girl (with superhuman spider-smashing strength) until I can successfully dispatch the little freak. Ugh.
